What to Do When Your Top Employee Gets Disengaged

A recent article, How to Stave Off Business Burnout as a Startup Owner by Larry Alton says that usually, startup owners find it so taxing to manage all the moving parts of running a business which may lead to burnout.  Burnout is the complete mental, emotional, and physical fatigue that results from prolonged stress. Luckily, burnout can be avoided to keep you going.

Here are four simple ways to prevent business burnout-the ultimate destroyer of productivity.

Stay motivated

Don’t get bored and tired, but instead remember why you do what you do. Write down the reason (the idea and passion) why you started a business in your field. Display this piece of writing prominently in your individual office space to motivate yourself that you and your work matter. Also, find time to meditate to ease anxiety and reduce stress.  

Create a schedule and stick to it

To create a schedule, allot sufficient time for each particular task then stick to it. As a business owner, some urgent matter may arise, in that case you can make some adjustments, but you don’t need to reorganize your whole life around one unexpected work issue.

Hire a virtual assistant

As a startup owner, you can hire a virtual receptionist to help you with administrative tasks like answering phone calls in your business name, mail and package handling etc.  so you can focus on the core of your business.

Ensure to get enough sleep

Make sure you get enough sleep to have all the necessary bodily functions such as attention span and daytime alertness.  Lack of sleep will hamper your cognition in a similar way to alcohol intoxication.  Don’t let yourself accumulate too many missed hours of sleep, which result to stress, sluggishness and inflammation.
