How to work well under pressure and thrive in business - man holding head stressed

It’s no secret that starting your own business comes with a lot of stress. Unlike the overnight success stories we see online from time to time, the reality is starting and managing your own business can be very demanding and stressful. The key is to know how to manage stressful situations in order to effectively manage and scale your business. In this article, we cover top tips on how to work well under pressure and thrive in business.  

Prioritise tasks  

Business owners, particularly at the start-up stage, usually wear many hats. They can easily start to feel like they’re being pulled in different directions and can start to feel overwhelmed. One simple way to avoid this is to organise your tasks in order of priority and work your way down your list. Breaking down actionable steps on paper rather than having them all in your head will help you relieve pressure and work efficiently.  


Invest in mentorship  

Investing in mentorship allows you to learn first-stand from experts in your field. Mentors are usually extremely good at managing their time and tackling everyday business problems. Intensive guidance and support from such individuals will help alleviate pressure, avoid common mistakes and fast-track your success.  


Learn to welcome new challenges  

Entrepreneurship comes with its fair share of challenges. Learning to embrace and learn from them is pivotal to your growth and success. The thing is, many skills you have mastered were probably once new and daunting. By learning to feel the fear and do it anyway, you increase your chances of success in business.  


Stay focused on the end goal(s) 

Another top tip on how you can keep your calm in stressful situations and work under pressure effectively is by staying focused on the end goal(s). This will help you maintain your gaze on your vision and give you the resilience you need to prosper. The key is to maintain your cool and envision yourself overcoming the hurdle and achieving your end goal(s). 


Learn from previous mistakes 

Learning from previous mistakes helps you gain valuable wisdom that will help you in your future. Identifying where you have gone wrong in the past and making a conscious effort to make changes is key. Perhaps in the past you haven’t asked for help when you needed it, or you haven’t effectively managed your schedule which has increased stress. You can now focus on these key areas, making the necessary changes needed to help you work under pressure in the future.
