Sometimes, perhaps many times, we fret over the details of our business. As the details demand so much of our focus they can take on a life of their own, consuming our focus and bringing us anxiety when we feel we are neglecting the big picture, the strategy, the marketing and business development.

How then are we to build our businesses when the urgent takes over the important?

Perhaps the answer is in acceptance. If we can accept the details as being necessary, but not important, we can begin to shift our energy in relation to the details, and by shifting our energy, our minds can open to new ways of approaching our work. Through acceptance comes a relief from stress and stress is the great constrictor of creativity. Without a stressful mindset we can discover new possibilities, or at a minimum enjoy the ride.

…And it all begins with acceptance.
