When you own your own business it is hard not to worry about how it will operate when your gone. The question of how well you have trained your staff? Do I have enough staff? Are they going to be able to do the job without me here? They all play heavily on my mind.
But I was reading today about being mentally strong. #4 on the list was not wasting energy on things out of your control. Good advice! So once I have boarded the plane and I am on my way - I will no longer have control of what happens - so at that point I have to have trust. I have to trust that I have done the best job I knew, with the knowledge that I have, in training my staff to do the best job they can do, while I am gone.
That really is not that hard to do. The staff that I have at this moment in time are able to understand how valuable they are to me. And they are very adept at #8 and #10 on the list - #8 - they don't make the same mistakes over and over & #10 - and they don't give up after the first failure.
My take on work (and life) - Relax, enjoy yourself. Life is too short to stress on other peoples expectations. So take a deep breath - by this time next year you won't even know what you were worried about! In life I find it is too hard to please all the people all the time - so if you can't please everyone then you at least have to learn how to please yourself!
