“Getting Out of a ‘Funk'”
Does everyday feel like a repeat of the last? As a business owner, entrepreneur, or even an employee, day to day life can become repetitive. Having a planned agenda, or to do list, or a door industry quoting and project management software certainly helps you keep on track and meeting deadlines. But, what happens when those plans become stale and tiresome? Getting stuck in a funk or ongoing cycle that seems never ending can be frustrating. This blog presents some ideas and methods used to keep life and your door, frame and hardware business fresh.
The first step is understanding your issue. Whether you are analyzing problems within your door business or evaluating CPQ project management software, or examining your personal life, start by identifying and acknowledging the problem. Next, take time to ask yourself why this problem occurred?
VeryWellMind states that finding the source of your routine, and why it troubles you, is critical in alleviating your negative feelings and funk. Plus understanding the source enables you to avoid those situations in the future and eliminate those aspects within your life. Most importantly, you can then design and even introduce new more positive routines to your life. Sometimes technology can help you break the funk but technology can also contribute to that funk.
Along with determining the source and reasoning behind high repetition and low reward in day to day life, it is essential to stop searching for perfection. We have all heard this a million times, ‘No one is perfect’ and it is honestly true. Nobody gets everything right. While many intellectually understand this truth, they continue to strive for perfection. This mindset makes it difficult to seek true gratitude and real happiness for what you have accomplished.
