Persistence Vs Overwhelm

We’re being continually told to be persistent. When does persistence or doggedness become foolishness and overwhelm, leading nowhere? You are trying everything you know how but not getting any results.

This can be hard to determine for some of us who don’t want to give up without a good effort, yet we’ve tried everything we know how, and are feeling overstretched.
It is the sign of an industrious person to take every action possible, yet we’ve tried so many things so many different ways and there are simply too many things to tackle – the road so far is headed nowhere.

If you are not the creative type, and coming up with something completely new, the answer may be far easier.

In the business world, we are rarely doing something that is so completely new, you can’t find someone who has gone through a similar process as you are going through. It is then a matter of finding trusted advisors, a mentor and/or a coach. No need to reinvent the wheel.

It is also a good time to regroup and simplify. Delete the things that do not move you forward and delegate or outsource things that are not your core competence. You would have determined what you bring to the table and work mostly on that.

      We need to keep going, but be able to recognize when we are simply overstretched.
