Question of the Day


Should I close my business or not?

Dear Mike, I'm dealing with making a major life decision about whether to close my business or not. Don't get me wrong, this is a totally separate situation from my personal life, which I am happy and more content with than ever. Any advice?

Answer


To break down your situation as simply as possible, don't think in terms of what you "should" do, think in terms of what you want to do. What do you WANT to do? Of course, this is not such a simple question because you'll want to take many factors into consideration. For example, you may want to shut down the business, but then you'd be left with more questions about what you want to do, and regret or remorse may set in.

Question of the Day


Should I close my business or not?

Dear Mike, I'm dealing with making a major life decision about whether to close my business or not. Don't get me wrong, this is a totally separate situation from my personal life, which I am happy and more content with than ever. Any advice?

Answer


To break down your situation as simply as possible, don't think in terms of what you "should" do, think in terms of what you want to do. What do you WANT to do? Of course, this is not such a simple question because you'll want to take many factors into consideration. For example, you may want to shut down the business, but then you'd be left with more questions about what you want to do, and regret or remorse may set in.

Still, keep asking yourself about what you WANT. Feel for the answers. And think of the short-term and the long-term. What would you like to be doing long-term? And from time to time, visualize yourself closing the biz, and then at a later time (maybe same day) visualize yourself staying open (see both paths being taken) and see how you feel with the visualizations. Where do you see yourself in the days, weeks, months, and years that follow under each scenario? What feels better? What feels more natural? Where to you find the least resistance?

Another thought... when you don't know what to do... don't do anything! Often, as you coast, your options become clearer. Last thought... sometimes, just because something is challenging, it doesn't mean you should avoid pursuing it (i.e., staying open). Take your time with your decisions. Eventually you will feel a sense of knowing about what you should do.
