Not to get overly-philosophical on you here, but in the end, how important is each one of us in the scheme of the universe? The reality is that our own personal world is extremely important to us, as it is what we spend most of our time focusing on. But when you get into tough situations in your small business, try to keep things in perspective; it will make it a lot easier for you to keep your blood pressure down and make better decisions. Many if not most entrepreneurs are perfectionists, so this only feeds the tendency to take things too seriously. You should always be prepared of course, but bear in mind that if something small (or even large) does not go exactly as planned, the world is not likely to come to an end. Don’t use this perspective as an excuse; rather use it as a way to keep your sanity in the crazy world of entrepreneurship..
