Stress comes in many different shapes and forms and I’m not talking about the good, positive stress in moderation that helps you grow and adapt, but rather about that stress which most if not all of us would rather do without in our lives. So whether it comes at you all at once or indeed if it hits you bit by bit in little bite-sized chunks, it can really be a cause for some real distress and not only knock you off your business development trajectory, but perhaps also deal a serious blow to your health.
In the business world particularly, the entrepreneur or the business owner tries to remove themselves from the technical, day to day operations of the business, effectively endeavouring to work on the business as opposed to working in the business, taking a bigger-picture view of proceedings so that they don’t really have to deal with the little everyday stresses that can really add up to something big. All of that said however, as much as you do indeed want to remove yourself from the small issues that could cause you unnecessary irritations, ‘eating an elephant’ so to say requires that you do so in bite-sized little chunks you have no problem swallowing.
This would mean that it’s best to take care of these small little issues on a management level, but also on the level of building solutions into the daily operations instead of having to micro-manage the issues that flare up as you go along. It can be a periodic cause for some serious concern having to constantly worry about a consignment which is vital to the operation of your business not arriving on time or even going missing, for example, when that really is just unnecessary stress.
In this instance, a built-in solution which could be effected as opposed to rather having to worry about the same little thing all the time would be something like commissioning a specialised same day delivery company like TNT, whose compact size makes it reliable enough to have you enjoying one less thing to stress about. This goes both ways, including solutions which you must perhaps deliver in addition to that which you must receive as part of your supply chain.
From there you can apply the same principle to just about every other area of your life to effectively knock off all these little minor stress-factors that can really build up to something significant.
