Have a health check

By The Taskmaster

The Taskmaster says go to the doctor!Starting a business is like running a marathon every day, climbing Everest every month and swimming the Engligh channel every second week. It’s tough, ardous and if you are not careful, it can take a toll on your health.



The stress and exhaustion that you many entrepreneurs learn to live with needs to be carefully monitored and the only way to do that is by having regular health checks.


Spending just 15 minutes with a doctor or health professional will help you address any issues and keep yourself in good condition.


Depending on your personal circumstances, a monthly, quarterly or bi-annual check up might be best. Talk to your doctor, schedule a year’s worth of appointments and stick to the schedule.


Think of it as an investment in the most important asset your business owns – you. A healthy entrepreneur thinks more clearly, makes better decisions and has more energy.
