I’ve been suffering from some allergy and asthma symptoms recently, and in my Googling I came across something known as “Sick Building Syndrome.” This involves “situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building” according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation.
This got me thinking, what about Sick Business Syndrome?
Here’s what the definition of Sick Business Syndrome might be:
The term “sick business syndrome” (SBS) is used to describe situations in which employees or owners of a business experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in the business, but no single cause can be identified. The complaints may be localized in a particular department or function, or may be widespread throughout the business.
Have you experienced Sick Business Syndrome? Is there a cure?
I used to think it was a silly waste of time to think about a vision for my life. Who does that?
Any project or system that involves people, no matter how well-intentioned, eventually loses luster once the initial excitement and momentum wears off. Everything becomes a job after long enough, no matter how infatuated you were in the beginning.
Every creative person, every entrepreneur and everyone who tries something new needs to realize and accept this. Your work is going to suck in the beginning.
View this post on Instagram I’ve dealt with depression my whole life. Sometimes it gets the better of me for weeks or months on end.
Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.
I read last week that a record number of people are leaving their jobs. They’re leaving because we’re in a tight labor market right now, and finding a better job is easy.
