Last week I launched a new series of short articles to explain how successful business owners and companies get stuck (1st article link). This week we will talk about my favorite stuck client, the business owner who is a victim of their success.
When you build your business from the ground up, you know everything and everyone intimately. You've figured out many things on the fly and pushed through "make it work" moments to emerge on the other side, completely overwhelmed by the success you've achieved. It seems impossible to step back and work on the big picture because you lack enough hours to attend to all the daily business demands. Thus, everyone is caught up in the doing, and no one at the helm guiding and directing.
If you are not investing in your business's future, then eventually, you hit the point of diminishing return, and voila, You Are STUCK.
And being stuck ALWAYS costs you something.
Sometimes the price is frustration or inconvenience. For example, a key employee leaves, and after three months of searching, you still haven't found the right person. Meanwhile, you and others have to take up the slack.
Or perhaps you are paying in lowered profits because you are too busy reinventing the wheel to gain the efficiencies of standardizing processes and systems.
I guarantee you pay through mental and physical exhaustion that may even be diminishing your passion for the business you've built.
So, why do we struggle with admitting
we are stuck and asking for help?
We don't always recognize when we are stuck on replay and no longer creating new hits.
