I was recently having a conversation with an entrepreneurial friend of mine about some of the struggles he was having and something hit me. He’s clearly not treating his entrepreneurial spirit like a cash crop. The spirit is just like something you would plant in your back yard, it has certain needs that must be met in order to grow and flourish.
My friend was getting bogged down in the day to day grind and struggling to recharge his batteries. After listening to his problem I was able to quickly give him some advice on how to solve his problem. I simply told him “You need more Green time and less Screen time.” He looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language or had introduced some mind boggling concept so we dove into it.
Sometimes the easiest way to get a fresh perspective on things is to change your surroundings. I’m a huge fan of trying to get outside as much as possible. A little “Green Time” is a great way to recharge the batteries and take a moment to get away from the working grind.
One of the easiest ways to give your entrepreneurial spirit what it needs to thrive is get outside, change your perspective, get a little fresh air to help refocus yourself.
In today’s fully connected times no one is every really “out of the office” so its easy to get out on a walking meeting or get some green time and still be fully engaged in your work day.
Don’t let your entrepreneurial spirit wither and die on the vine, give it the Green time it needs
