Identify Your Enough Point

Enough is enough: but that doesn't stop us from going too far, right?

There is an overwhelming and under serving expectation modern society to keep going, to not give up and to even completely ignore the signals that tell you to stop!

We aren't going to go into hustle culture, the hamster wheel mentality or 9-5 thinking but I know each and every one of us can admit that we just have a pretty shitty relationship with knowing (and enforcing) are own limits.

This became super apparent when I decided to step into the world of business somewhere between 2019 and 2020 to pursue art selling, teaching and taking commissions.


As someone who had no previous experience around working for myself all I knew how to do was: in the time available complete as much as possible. (which is great when you work for someone else because there are clearly defined limits on what there is to do and how much time you have to do it. For the most part at least.)


One of the first lessons business taught me was that the amount of work you do does not equal results.

  • there's always so much more

  • a million other ways you can try it

  • you're not guaranteed results

  • and you are responsible for every single thing


And we aren't bitching about business here as it is also one of the most freeing and expansive choices I've made in my life - but the old rules didn't apply anymore (and I hadn't created new ones yet).

Depending on where you find this blog on your journey in business you might have already experienced the messy middle of transitioning from the traditional working mindset, you could have figured some stuff out already or this might be completely fresh for you and this is gonna help you step over a big puddle on your path.

Your Enough Point

To keep it super simple: your Enough Point is the conscious marker of where you choose to stop a limit yourself within each area of your business for your overall health and well-being.


Here are some examples:

  1. I will only work 6 hours today.

  2. When I begin to become irritable or unfocussed I will take a break and check-in with what my body needs in this movement.

  3. If I have tried more than 5 times in one hour to fix a technology problem I will ask for help, outsource or try again another day.

As you can see this list is not exhaustive, and it is very flexible, so that you are able to create something that suits you and your needs.


Discovering Your Enough Point isn't about adhering to anyone else's standards or expectations with how you should work.


The desire and design here is for you to have an intimate understanding of your needs so that you can enjoy the journey and continue to operate in business for longer. as someone who's been close to burnout many times - and thought about quitting my business many times- this is a gift I happily give you.


And if you're stuck in the never enough mindset - the first step for you is tapping into love and compassion for this learning process of doing it a different way

And sometimes we don't know how we're operating because it is so ingrained and really too close for us to see clearly. If you would like my support as a coach and entrepreneur then I'd like to offer you a discounted one to one coaching session to identify this for you.


To apply all you need to do is send me an email contact@nikkiwouters.com and let me know you're responding to this blog post and would like to claim the discount.

In the comments below you can share with me the Enough Points you have identified or even the thinking behind applying this to your business. I look forward to seeing what's come up for you!

And if you know that this conservation needs to go further so that you can go further too, join our community over on FB.
