“Do not be afraid of improving slowly. Be afraid of standing still.”
– Chinese Proverb
Every day, there’s a battle between us and our brains.
I call it the entrepreneurial ‘crazy brain’. It sneaks up on you and makes you second-guess.
When the crazy brain kicks in, which is pretty much every day for me, it’s harder to get things accomplished.
Is it lack of discipline? Fear of failure? Perfectionism? Pure laziness?
Dunno for sure.
A straight-up painful example of ‘crazy brain’ from my own business is this…
I started doing a podcast – only posting to my blog – an entire year before I put it up on iTunes. I called it my ‘fodcast’ – faux podcast.
Why??? What in the actual heck would make it OK in my mind to have a YouTube channel that I was actively using, but be unwilling to put my podcast up on iTunes????
For some reason YouTube seemed easy but posting on iTunes was playing with the big boys. I really don’t know.
Sneaky effing entrepreneurial crazy brain.
I’m not judging you (or myself) for not doing things we know we’re supposed to do. It happens.
That’s why I have a coach and support — to slap the stupid out of me sometimes.
Because it’s me against my brain. Every. Single. Day.
And that’s OK.
Your entrepreneurial mindset is so important and if you sometimes get the crazy brain like I do, I’ve chosen three episodes that will help.
- How happy are you with your business? (One of my most successful clients said she listened to this 6 times!!)
- How to Do the Work Even When You’re in a Funk and Don’t Want to
- My Family and Friends Don’t Support Me in My Business
You can also listen:
