15 Minutes To Action – How To Avoid Entrepreneurial Burnout

Beginning an entrepreneurial journey requires passion, hard work, and time, but too much can lead to rapid burnout. In this week’s ’15 Minutes To Action’, Nick shares some tips that’ll keep that crash at bay.


  • It’s far better to concentrate on five, deep hours of flow, on the key areas that you wish to build on, than it is to spend an entire day on minor tasks.
  • Focus on your “eulogy virtues”, Do you wish to be remembered as a workaholic, or do you want to be the person that made a difference. How will people think of you in the future, based on the you that you are now?
  • Creating structure in your day is essential to beat overwhelm and overwork. Set time for work, and time for family and leisure in order to create balance.
  • Don’t fall in love with every idea you have. Remember that depending on what your goal is, one idea or insight can change everything. Focus on the best ideas and execute with precision.

‘Five good deep hours of intense flow is the maximum you need to do in a day’

‘Getting stuff out of your head first thing in the morning starts to give you clarity and focus’

‘It’s better to go one mile deep and an inch wide’

My name is Nick Bradley. I’m an entrepreneur, author, speaker and investor. My background is in growing and scaling VC and Private Equity backed businesses.

Having successfully built, bought and sold a number of companies, and removed myself from day-to-day operations, my focus now is on helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to be, in business and in life. As well as investing in growth businesses and backing turnarounds – with the ultimate aim of creating value from significant capital events.

I’m passionate about personal and professional development – showing up and being the best version of myself … every day.

My bigger vision is to help bring entrepreneurial skills, experience and mindset to people in developing nations – so they can follow their dreams, live life more on their terms – utilising entrepreneurship as a global force for good.
