The Entrepreneur’s Cure for Being Overwhelmed

Updated: Jan 28, 2021

Today is small business Saturday (the day after black Friday in case you didn’t know). And although there is a great positive message behind this day, I can’t help but think that this time of the year will leave many business owners feeling overwhelmed.

For me, I’m thinking about marketing plans, product releases, the new year, systems and processes, and so many things at once.

Being an entrepreneur is a gift and a curse. The gift is that the ideas come to us so easily and we we’re so excited to make them happen. The curse is that the ideas can sometimes lead us to be overwhelmed.

I’ve got pages of Google Docs and countless Evernotes and elaborate Trello boards just full of great ideas.

Where do I start? Which one do I do first? Then what’s next?

We, entrepreneurs, often feel overwhelmed.

But there’s a solution.

In the book of Psalms 61:2, King David provides insight for us. He says “From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”

How often do we cry out for more security (financially) and more strength to deal with the problems of being an entrepreneur.

This is when VISION is important.
