Happy Monday folks. I’ve never dreaded Mondays, mainly due to the fact that I love what I do for a living, but the past two Mondays have seen me jumping out of bed with some serious energy and a will to really get the week started with a bang. Since I marched in to the startup world, I’ve found myself waking up earlier than ever with my head buzzing in anticipation of the day ahead.
That feeling of knowing that everything I do in a day is working towards building a business that will bring to life my ideas and ambitions is one that is hard to describe. If you could can it, you would be a zillionaire in no time. It is a different mindset to the one that I had when I was employed. It must be that feeling that pushes entrepreneurs forward when things are tough Does it ever fade? I guess I’ll find out.
Harnessing that feeling
A big challenge is taking that feeling and turning it in to action. I’ve found it can be easy to get carried away and before you know it, you have far too many things on the burners. I’m trying to make sure I focus on the big tasks, the ones that are really going to make things happen. As I get close to launch, the fundamentals of the business are taking shape, I now need to see them through to completion and ensure that little things don’t shift that focus. Time to get this show really on the road…
Have a great week.

I’ve just stumbled across your bog following Suzanne’s link on LinkedIn. Sounds incredibly exciting, and I’m looking forward to hearing about your journey!
Thanks for the comment! I am very excited. Which Suzanne?
All very best wishes for future prosperity Mike.
A little advice offered in a spirit of goodwill: Meantime, remember to always mentally ‘reward’ yourself and consciously savour every success or accomplishment – the little ones as well as the big ones. It all goes into the cerebral locker so that you can dip into it when the setbacks and the wee beasty gremlins start welling up with the negativity.
Sounds weird, but, from experience, I can assure you it works.
Hi Edward, thanks very much for your best wishes and that piece of advice, I’ll make sure to do it!
