Entrepreneur – What is your Favorite Business Activity

There are many reasons my people go into business, is your favorite business activity one that made you become an entrepreneur?

It is thrilling to find the fun in running a business by finding your favorite business activity and doing it well.

Owning and operating a business is called work for a reason. It is an arduous undertaking full of tasks that are not pleasant and that one would rather not do.  Every business has tasks that are enjoyable. This is true no matter how serious and how important the business operations are. This is good because one of the things that keep an entrepreneur going to work each day is finding something enjoyable to do. In order to get through all the hard things ,it is nice to be able to reward one’s self with an enjoyable task.

Make a list of all the tasks that are necessary for you to do each day. On one side of the page, list all the hard tasks that you hate doing. On the other side, list the task that you enjoy doing. After this analysis in a best-case scenario, the task you enjoy will outweigh the tasks you hate. In a worst-case scenario, the number of tasks you enjoy will be dwarfed by the number of tasks you hate. This list is a useful tool. It will help you see how many fun tasks and how many not so fun tasks you have. Having a clear ideas of the number and quality of tasks helps you get a coear ahd accurate view of your day.

Today is a good day to look at your business operations with a clear and objective eye.

One approach to finding the fun and joy in your business again may be to divide your tasks. One way to do the division so that after a certain number of tasks that you dislike are completed, you “reward” yourself by doing one of the tasks you enjoy. By balancing the completion of tasks you do not like with the completion of tasks you enjoy you are able to keep some enjoyment in the day. While it is true that work is, well, work, there is no reason the work has to be a horrible, mind-numbing, and heartbreaking experience. Given a choice between doing all the hard tasks one does not enjoy with no break and breaking up the tasks one does not enjoy with more enjoyable tasks, most people would prefer the break.

Try it yourself in your business and see how it works for you. Go to work and work, do not shy away from the hard jobs, the boring jobs and the jobs you do not want to do. Instead, do the hard tasks, the tasks you do not enjoy. Throughout the workday, be sure to do some of the tasks that you do enjoy on a regular basis.  Keep in mind that your business is just that, your business. Take this opportunity to find the joy and the fun that exists in your business.

In conclusion, it is thrilling to find the fun in running a business by finding your favorite business activity and doing it well. So, the question for you this thrilling day, is what can you do to make your business enjoyable to operate?
