Q&A: How To Handle the Meantime?
Put your smarty pants on, fellow creators, it’s time to answer a reader question:
I’ve got a question I was wondering if maybe you could pose them to your readers sometime.
What do you do when you get bored?
You’ve been chasing your goals for a while now, doing the work, visualizing them, working every day on your projects, etc.
For example, if your work is an online business, well then you’ve been blogging away every day, putting up new posts and articles, answering e-mails, reading other sites similar to yours, coaching clients, etc., doing all of these things every day. And things are going well, you’re advancing (even if at a turtle’s pace!), you’re optimistic about the outcomes.
But one day comes, and you’re just SO BORED with your work! You know you won’t be bored forever. But you’re just sick and tired of looking at your computer every day, and sitting in your office while the sun shines outside. But you’ve got 1000 e-mails to answer, and you didn’t get your daily blog post up today, and you haven’t scheduled any holidays (ie. no one is expecting you to take time off so your readers and clients are expecting you to COME IN), you’ve got appointments you’re supposed to keep, and…….. well 100 million things that you’re supposed to do and people (ie. your beloved clients and readers) are expecting from you.
So what do you do when you feel this way? Not depressed, or pessimistic. Just bored and tired of the same old routine. You’d just love to be able to turn off your computer for a week, and not go into your home office for a week. But you’ve got obligations that you just have to fulfil, seeing as you are the only one running your business.
I’d love to hear some perspectives on this. I’m sure everyone must feel this way sometime. Especially now that the summer is slipping away, and nothing seems more enticing than a sudden, unplanned holiday out in the countryside – but you’ve got all those clients waiting for you, and all those appointments to keep!
I’ve posted this question in its entirety so we don’t miss anything.
And with that I’m turning this one over to you, wise ones. Big thanks to our lovely reader for the question and to you guys for your insights and support!
