I love checking tasks off my list. How about you? It feels so good, right?! Instantaneous dopamine hit.

And it’s important to zoom in, work down your list, and complete your day to day tasks, projects, and client work. Zooming in is an essential part of business ownership. I dare say it’s also the easier side of business ownership. It feels good to get shit done, so you do it with little to no force necessary.

The harder side to business ownership is zooming out to strategize, make decisions, prepare for what is to come, and plan your days, weeks, quarters, and years. Such activities put you in the driver’s seat and make you work ON your business instead of sucking you IN to your business. The tendency is to overlook, bypass, and undervalue zooming out because it seems easier to just do everything on your plate rather than take the time to figure out how and when to best accomplish it all if at all. 

Effectively zooming out will help you…

Reduce stress

Minimize decision fatigue

Keep your energy up throughout your day


Show up prepared

Increase your confidence

Know what you’re going to work on and when

Zooming out often gets squeezed out but it is essential. You must figure out how you can slow down and create time to zoom out in order to swiftly and efficiently move through your task list.

In this episode of the Small Business Straight Talk Podcast, I dive into the heavy mental load business owners carry and discuss four specific activities worth making time for to manage your mental load and run a better business
