You have so many things in mind about why you hate what you are doing. But what is the cause? You can blame it on your co-workers, facilities, working environment, or the tasks demanded of you to finish. When you are able to identify them one by one, it means to say that you can focus and find a solution for them.
  • Learn how to Confer a Trust. It would be too difficult to accomplish everything all by yourself. At some point, you need to find some time for you to relax and be able to delegate the task to others. Learn to trust someone else by giving direction open to accept opinions and allow them to work on it. Entrust them on something you think they can accomplish and be able to finish it on time. Then step back and allow them to do it.

Since you are the owner, you have the privilege to choose a specific time for you to start working. Some business owners get to pick 9-5 hours or the other way around. But choose the time works best for them.
