Being a Disciplined Rebel
I was so lucky to be born into a family of multi-generation entrepreneurs. My parents were very open-minded, almost unconventional. They empowered me to follow all my passions and encouraged me to travel worldwide. My life was effortless, and as challenges excite me, I created them by constantly pushing myself beyond my limits. This became very useful when life hit, and I utilized my knowledge and experience to change my personal and professional lives.

The Benefits of Alternating Focused Work and Sheer Idleness (dolce far niente).
The first thing that I teach my clients is to alternate focused work and sheer idleness. They have to make time for doing nothing and understand that this is when they grow. It’s counter-intuitive because when you are passionate about what you want to create in the world you work hard and don’t even realize how hard you work. The truth is that you need to stop and do nothing because when you rest, your brain integrates what happened before and this is when you become truly creative. .

When you are a leader, you know that running a business is like being on a roller coaster. This is why you need to find a way to keep yourself centered, energized, and emotionally detached from the day by day.

Set your Guilt-free Pleasures and Set yourself up for Success
If you don’t let go of your need to have eyes on everything at all times, you don’t recharge. As a business owner, you need to relent in control and let go of the anxiety attached to your business. You’re operating off of fear and fight or flight when you attach these emotions to your job. You have to break down your own desire to feel busy and be willing to walk away sometimes for your own mental health. When you’re an anxiety-based workaholic, you’re training your brain out of creativity. You can’t think creatively while under immense stress. Never undermine your own ability as a business owner and set your own guilt-free boundaries. These boundaries will be your lifeline, and you have to be disciplined and dedicated to letting go. It seems counterintuitive, but in truth, this lifestyle will only help your creativity and mental health as a business owner flourish. Commitment and organization serve very important purposes, and there is a balance you have to strike. You have to balance how you focus on the present and caring for yourself and how you focus on the future and growing your business. Listen to my interview with Josh Elledge in this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur.

But remember: be playful and flexible with that structure because too much structure is as detrimental as a lack of structure. Basically, it’s a dance within the opposites.
