If you’ve allowed yourself the rest with time for internal reflection during the pandemic, you may have had some useful discoveries: Change or revise your business, quit your job and start a business, or maybe continue the long absence of decision making. Is this a welcome change?
Many people I’ve spoken with feel a growing apathy about going back to work or recalibrating their business. Admittedly, I’ve experienced a bit of this myself, haven’t you?
When we work full-throttle, burnout or apathy is part of the natural order inducing change and growth. It’s almost a required rite of passage to hit the wall at some point. That’s just part of being in business for several years – or having a long, successful career. It doesn’t matter if you love your business, your clients or your job.
LAID OFF EMPLOYEES STARTING THEIR OWN BUSINESS
Many employees laid off during the pandemic are starting their own business so they don’t need to rely on an employer for income. Without the experience of knowing what tiger traps they’ll discover or how to sustain a business over the long term, they often start developing a product or service and a website – or use tactics from the larger company they were working for. When they discover those ideas aren’t sufficient for a small business to generate sustainable ROI or income, they hit the wall of fear or apathy. I’ve seen this with a few dozen smart, ambitious startups that my company supports.
Luckily, the guided support from strong marketing consultation gets them back on track to gain results. Our clients tell us there’s nothing like fruitful revenue to drain apathy!
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
There are as many tactics as there are people to allay apathy. Here are a few:
Sleep more (oh right, you've probably done that this year). Maybe your body, mind and spirit are exhausted and need to rejuvenate in dreams, meditation, reflective brainstorming, or rest.
Exercise to boost energy. Adding oxygen to your body can also reinvigorate your business with endorphins if you’re feeling unmotivated.
