Your relationship with your business can often mirror the relationships in your personal life. All business professionals have felt moments of passion, gratitude, happiness, frustration, anger and even defeat at some point along their business journey. It’s crucial you give the relationship with your business the same attention and effort you would your significant other or best friend. Most individuals can remember the time period when suddenly the office coffee machine just didn’t shine the way it used to. From daunting projects to a general lack of inspiration, the exit from the honeymoon phase at work can plummet individuals into a cycle of self-doubt and frustration.
It’s true the nuance of the job, work colleagues and office space tend to dull over time and many individuals might find themselves in a bit of a rut, unsure of how to snap out of it. Whether you’ve hit this phase recently, have been living in it for a great deal of time, or want to proactively avoid the lull in passion for work for yourself or your team, here are some tips on how to help make your old or existing business feel like new.
