Once a week, preferably Monday, but this post is late, we plan on posting a new track to listen to while at work. This week, it is Solange’s “Cranes in the Sky”. It’s nominated, because it’s a new track with a video that references work. She croons, “I try to work it away.” Solange is musically chronicling complacency, the sense of doing things without true purpose to avoid confronting your true feelings about a topic.
For an entrepreneur, this sort of aversion can cause problems for productivity and must be confronted in order to fulfill your company’s true potential. However, everyone has or will ignore the obvious at times to avoid dealing with problems. This blog will list five ways to overcome this obstacle:
Let the Cranes Track Inspire YOUR Company’s Greatness
- Invest in People. The best way to get out of your own complacency cycle is to work or volunteer for others. Whether you choose to work on your community or with your own employees, working with others can help inspire you to learn more about your market audience and your employees productivity. Helping others around you will inevitably be helping yourself in the long-run.
- Educate Yourself. Self-education is the key to eradicating complacency in your own life. Take time to learn a new skill whether related to your business or not. Taking time for developing your mind will never be something that you will regret.
- Take a Vacation. I prefer to mix business with pleasure, so take a workcation. Go to a business conference in an exotic location and write it off as a work expense, but enjoy it for what it’s worth. Take your family, friends, or partner and make your business truly something your loved ones are just as invested in as you are.
Now, take a moment to enjoy Solange’s “Cranes in the Sky.”
