work life balance

For many business owners, time is as precious and sometimes seems as scarce as money.

Striking a balance between work and personal time can be a constant struggle. There simply aren’t enough hours in a day to accomplish the things you want in your business, let alone in other areas of your lifetime with your family, time to relax, read a book, or do something just because it’s fun.

If your business dominates your life and you find yourself missing out on the things that really ARE important – ask yourself this question:

Do you have a business, or does your company have you?

  • Do you spend too much time working IN your business and not enough working ON it?
  • Are you up late at night or during the weekend catching up on admin?
  • Can your business keep running successfully if you’re not there?
  • Does your business get in the way of spending time with your family and the things you love to do?
  • Does your business work for you … or do you work for your business?

What is a work-life balance anyway?

It’s really a misnomer. There is not your work, and then your life. There is just your life, of which work is a component. How you fit that component into your life makes the difference.
If this continues to be a challenge, you risk becoming stale, exhausted and stressed out – no good for your business, no good for your family, and no good for you.

I’ll let you in on a secret – if you have a life with everything included (and nothing left out), you’ll turn your energy on its head. You’ll have a fresh approach, greater clarity, and objectivity, and feel inspired and accomplish more than you ever thought possible.

If you’re constantly struggling to balance your business and personal life, perhaps it’s time to take back the reins and start being THE BOSS.
