I’ve run a local business for almost 17 years now. And it’s still a learning experience. It’s still a challenge. It’s still stressful. And it’s still something I like doing.
But, after almost two decades, I begin to wonder. I wonder when I’ll be ‘enlightened’ – when I’ll hit my stride and the stress will fall away.
Does it happen when I can delegate all my tasks to my excellent staff?
Or perhaps it’s when I semi-retire some day (still many many years away) and I’m forced to relinquish my day-to-day responsibilities?
Or is this entrepreneurial enlightenment an obtainable goal? Is it one of these things we can always try to seek, but only in the trying do we discover ourselves and our own limitations and be content with what we find.
