One of the nice things about problems is that a good many of them do not exist except in our imaginations." -Steve Allen
Here's the dealio: Our brain loves to stir up some drama that doesn't exist.
It's kinda like an emotional, hormonal teenager that way. This is all fine and good in the survival-department but not so helpful in the running-a-sustainable-and-profitable-business-department.
This wiring can make even the most level-headed entrepreneurs spin out. I mean, it's easy to get wrapped around things we have little control over, and business hands us situations like this all day, every day.
If you fall into the camp of people who tend to create problems that don't exist, no shame in that game. Welcome to being human. But, let's squash the drama before it squashes us and our bottom line.
Join me in the livestream below, where we're talking all about getting clear on metrics that matter, how to stop chasing every imaginary problem down the a hole, why we create problems that don't exist, and what to do when there really IS a problem so you can run your business like a boss...instead of it running you.
