As I write this it’s 4am. I’ve been lying awake since around 3am (which is the middle of the night for me). This happens with all too much frequency, where I wake up and then I lie there ruminating about things real or imagined like:
- All of the things on my to-do list that have been there for … years?
- Things (not on the list) that I know I should be doing that I am not
- Financial doom & gloom, etc., etc
I don’t know what it is about the middle of the night. Maybe it’s the quiet or the dark (both inside the house and inside my head). I do know that there are probably thousands of other business owners out there lying awake right now too (most with much weightier issues than mine – but not blogging about it).
I wonder how many of the things that keep us awake at night are real/objective issues versus those ‘ghostly voices’ of inadequacy, insecurity and self doubt that haunt (many of) us.
So I ask the question (if anyone should even read this), what keeps you awake at night?
