What Can We Do When We’re Frustrated At Work?

Let’s talk about what happens during our workday. As business owners, we know it’s going to happen: we’re going to get frustrated at work. I experienced this a bit yesterday when I had this tech issue. There were a couple of apps on my laptop that weren’t working very well, and my computer was getting really slow too.

I kept thinking to myself, “Ok, I’ve got clients that are waiting for me to to do some work for them!” It was getting really frustrating. So I had to take a deep breath. (Sounds really corny, but it works.)

So what CAN we do when we’re frustrated at work?

I personally took a deep breath, put my feet flat on the floor, did some more deep breathing, and centered myself. There were even a couple of times during all these tech issues of the last few days where I’ve had to just move away from my laptop for a while and take a break.

I get tempted to just keep going at work, no matter what. And when that happens, my mood gets worse and worse. So I’m so grateful that I was able to take that time to center myself. Hopefully I’ll remember it more quickly next time!

Being in business for ourselves doesn’t mean that everything’s going to go perfectly. There are a lot of benefits to being in business for oneself. We have autonomy. Yet there’s so much to do.

Life is like that: Whether we’re working or not, frustrating things come up. So taking a deep breath, centering, and prioritizing can be so helpful.

After I centered myself, I looked at my calendar. I thought, “What is absolute-top priority what needs to get done today? What can wait till tomorrow?”
There are projects sometimes they can wait till next week, next month, and so on. I tend to be very overwhelmed. There are frustrations that come up during the day, but we don’t have to let them control us. It’s the same thing with really any emotion that we feel that is a bit too overpowering or too overwhelming.

What do you do when you are getting frustrated during the day?


Do It Yourself

Business growth can often feel like this!

How’s that working for you?

If saving money is a priority, consider this:
*Doing it all yourself means that you may be spending valuable time on creating web content, building and operating your website, and many other tasks.

*The stress…the exhaustion…waking up in the middle of the night wondering HOW you’re going to make all this work…

*How much time and energy does that leave you to actually get clients?

*How would it feel if you didn’t have all these worries?

*Imagine someone else taking care of these tasks so you have more time…to get more clients!

*This leads to…guess what? Less fatigue, less stress, and MORE INCOME!

Will Viewpoints Ever Give Us What We Need?

Others' viewpoints can help, but we ultimately have what we need.
Others’ viewpoints can help, but we ultimately have what we need.

So often we look outside ourselves.

This can often include asking for others’ opinions and/or watching for others’ reactions to what we say and do.
Sometimes in our looking outside ourselves, we can even go to extremes— like changing our own viewpoints to please others or not standing up for what we believe in due to fear of rejection.

What we need is not in other people, unhealthy food, or harmful substances. 
Want to know what it is? Look in the mirror.

We have everything we need. We just may not know it yet. It comes with practice, there’s no doubt about that.

It starts with real self-esteem or self-love, whatever you’d like to call it. And whether we need to go within about our personal lives or about our businesses, deep inside we know what we need.

This isn’t to say that we don’t ever need to see our doctor or therapist, or that we don’t need a business coach.

The difference is that when we look to others to fill a need we have, that can be co-dependent. And when that happens, nobody wins.
