Finding Peace

An entrepreneur’s mind is always in motion. Even in the quietest time of the year, between December 25 and January 1, many founders find it hard to find peace.

Certainly, this is my issue. There is so much I want to do. But the silence is deafening. Could it be that over the years, I’ve become so de-sensitized to the constant pinging of incoming emails and app notifications that when things quiet down in the inter-annum, I find it harder to concentrate?

I’ve tried background music, white noise, and podcasts playing at a low volume in the other room, but my mind can’t find peace.

Then I start writing. I feel a “click”. When I find the right topic in the moment, the chattering stops. The words give me something to focus on.

Maybe, peace is not the absence of thought – it is the presence of inspiration.
