I have seen a culture shift from the entrepreneurial spirit, which often encompasses collaboration and the bringing together of minds and resources, to the idea now coined as solopreneur. The idea behind the solopreneur is that people can be successful islands all by themselves.
As a child, I struggled with dyslexia. I could not read until I was seven years old. To make matters worse, I was a very “energetic” child (today, they may say I was ADD).
It never occurred to me that the life was being drained from me, that my choices, commitments, and pride were actually eating me alive.
Bottom line, there is nothing wrong with full and productive days, but when four days of vacation leaves you with two weeks of work to catch up on, you know you have an issue. When the things that you enjoy no longer bring you enjoyment, you know that you have been infected by the 21st century epidemic of being stretched too thin.
Simplicity…it is kind of ironic that the word is rather long as far as words go; in fact, it is the longest word in this sentence. Seriously, am I odd for spending time thinking about such things, or do other people get haunted by inconsistencies like these?
Well, it’s that time of year again: spring finals are upon us. For those graduating, it is the end of an era. For those with more years to go, it is a proving ground to insure you’re ready to meet next year’s challenges. For those no longer in school, it’s just another week.
I wonder if we, as people, don’t make life harder than it has to be? Yes, life is hard, full of trials, busy schedules, deadlines, and bills. But what is the alternative? Would being worry-free really make us happy?
What’s stopping you? This is a question that I have been asking myself a lot lately. What things, mindsets, people, and excuses are getting in my way and preventing further success?
Wow, I cannot believe it is time once again to write a Christmas article. This year has flown by! I must admit that the end of this year has really caught me by surprise. This was to be a year full of changes and new opportunities.
What’s holding you back? That is a question that I have been asking myself a lot lately. It seems like life can just start spinning out of control before we know it. Most of our time is spent just trying to figure out what direction we’re pointing. Yet, we all long for more.
