Quora sent me a link to an interesting topic the other day: As first time entrepreneurs, what part of the process are people often completely blind to?
There are many good answers, but mine would be: Manage Yourself.
What I mean is look after yourself physically, mentally and emotionally.
I have seen entrepreneurs and other business people make themselves ill. And clearly if they are physically unfit, developing and growing a business becomes hard if not impossible.
I have seen entrepreneurs suffer much mental distress. They have made poor decisions, blamed other people, and failed to take the right action at the right time.
I have seen entrepreneurs stay unaware of their emotional selves. And in doing so they have often inadvertently pushed away those who would help them under other circumstances.
What’s more I have done all these things myself. And therefore I know that I was completely blind to these things at the time.
Hey ho. Onward and upward.
