It's probably different for each person, depending on their situation. For me, it's when I have many ideas but find I have no time to properly think about them or do anything to bring them to fruition. You continue to be "busy" but not accomplishing the creative work you want to accomplish. "
Hi. I just tested it and it seems ok. It may have been a temporary glitch. Here's the link again: https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/openforum/articles/how-to-be-a-better-leader/ Thank you for flagging this. Do you see it now? "
Hi Heather. For sure, one should NEVER give up! Use the lesson from the setback or failure, and move on. As to how quickly to get right back on the horse, I would think it varies on the particular situation. Yes, sometimes just stepping back and giving yourself time to evaluate what happened, especially after a really big loss, as you say, is the wisest course. And more important, analyzing whether your strategy was the right one in the first place. Re-evaluate the strategy. Having said this, it's wise not to spend too much time stuck in this stage, and losing momentum, and even confidence. Some entrepreneurs are able to cut their losses quickly and focus on grabbing the next opportunity. How you manage your mindset when going through a setback is key. I once heard a coach say: grab the lesson and learn to walk away empty. That is, once you have done all the due diligence, and learned the lesson, don't wallow and stay stuck in that stage. Thank you for the question, Heather. It would be great to hear from other entrepreneurs on their advice for handling setbacks. "
Thank you, Martin, for your comment on the article and for sharing five lessons you learned. A key one you mention in the article is creating an "if so" scenario in your plan and trying to determine when you should bail out and when you should stay on the course. Glad you are continuing on your entrepreneurial journey, Martin. "
