Why guilt?

Why is it that guilt is an accepted and normal part of a small business owner’s life? I was taking time this past week to reflect on what I would like to improve on in the coming year and the first thing that popped into my head was guilt.

If I take a day off…guilt.

If I go on vacation…guilt.

If I don’t answer a client email immediately…guilt.

Reading a book…guilt.

It seems that every time I don’t do something for the business or I do something specifically for myself, I am overwhelmed by guilt. Why is that?

I associate guilt with failure. If I am not working, I am failing. I am curious if this is a normal feeling for other business owners.

This is something I plan to delve deeper into in 2017. I am going to make it a priority to overcome guilt and embrace me time.

What do you plan to focus on in the coming year?
