Guest Post by Stan Popovich
It can be stressful when you have to make important decisions regarding your book business and author career. Here are some suggestions on how to manage the stresses of making the right decisions.
Get all of the facts and necessary information to make the right decision. Find out the necessary facts of the situation and study all relevant information. This is important because you do not want to miss critical information that could make a difference in your book business decisions.
Think about what you want and consider the possible outcomes of your decision. Each decision will lead to new opportunities. Consider the possible opportunities and go from there. Spend some time just thinking about what is it that you want.
Get advice from other professionals in the book business. It is important to consider other viewpoints other than your own. These people can give you additional insights that you may be overlooking.
Take a deep breath to help relax in making your decisions. If you still feel stressed, then get some fresh air or do something fun to help relax. You will feel better and gain a fresh perspective on your current situation. This will make it easier to make the right decision.
Remember that you make decisions all the time. It would not be the end of the world if you made the wrong decision. You can always re-evaluate your situation and do something different. Do not put a lot of pressure on just one decision. You will have other opportunities to correct the situation.
Remember that making a business decision is not a life or death situation. If you make the wrong decision then the next step is to learn from your mistakes and go from there. Learn what you did right and learn what you did wrong. Be patient and eventually you will be able to make the right business decision.
