Have you ever stared at a screen knowing your to-do list is piling up like watching sand pile up at the bottom of a timer? You know business is supposed to be fun yet the lethargic soul-sucking energy of boredom is almost as taxing as considering a traditional 9-5.So what do you do? You could quit and spend another day ‘researching’ by tackling your never ending facebook wall or just plain blobbing out watching youtube videos of funny kittens and reading the blogs of people in your industry who ‘made it’ or you could change it!Here are four Joy of Business style tips to stop Business Boredom:

Tip #1 – Does this business still light you up?

As a massive creator what if you didn’t have to hold onto the business(es) you have forever? Is it time to move on to something else or is this a resistance? Whatever makes you feel lighter will be true for you. If your business doesn’t light you up anymore is this something you need to change or move on from?

Tip #2 – Do something else!

If you’re dragging your feet it’s a sign the energy isn’t there for that particular task. Instead of forcing yourself into work what about moving on and coming back to it later? Go for a walk! Get your body pampered! Move onto a different task, talk to a friend – anything else that will get you moving and the energy flowing again.

Tip #3 – Indulge in it

Resisting something will only make it greater. Give yourself time to indulge in your boredom, wallow, complain, overact your boredom – you might just become bored of your boredom and be ready to be energized again.

Tip #4 – Who does this belong to?

It sounds really strange but what if the boredom actually wasn’t yours. We are all a lot more connected than we think so what if the boredom wasn’t yours. A effective tool from Access Consciousness® for when you realize an emotion or feeling that isn’t yours (like tiredness and being sad) is asking “who does this belong to?” If it lightens up, it’s not yours. What if none of your thoughts, feelings and emotions where yours? In truth 99% of them are not. So stop being sad – and create!

Bonus Tip – You don’t have to do it!
Money follows joy, not the other way around. If there are certain parts of your business like book keeping for example that aren’t joyous, hire someone else who adores it!

What if business was never boring and all of it got to be fun? What are the possibilities if every day creating your business was an adventure (and remember you don’t have to do all of it!
