Take a break or keep pushing forward?
For the entrepreneur, this decision is never an easy one.
Regardless of the circumstance or our general wellbeing, our default state is to keep pushing ahead.
When we do that, though, we’re not present to our state of being.
We don’t get to bring our full self to our work. We don’t get to contribute at the level we know we can contribute, and we don’t get to be contributed to either.
Taking a step back creates a space for others to step in.
And this is also a test of the structures you’ve set into place to this point. If your team isn’t big enough, or your systems are insufficient, others may not show up in the way you expect them to. But whether you’re prepared or not, this is something an entrepreneur should experience.
So, next time you’re faced with the hard choice of taking a break when you feel like you should push through whatever you might be facing, be in discovery of what it’s like to step back. Leave a space for others to step in.
