Is your business so flexible that you are able to (and
often do) work all day, every day on it without taking
a break? Here's a tip to make sure that those things
that are most important to you get done as well as all
the work. At the beginning of each week, mark on your
calendar all of the IMPORTANT things in your life.
Everything from business appointments to a play date at
the park with your kids. Keep ALL of these appointments
just as you would keep business appointments and work the
rest of life's emergencies and little tasks around them.
Eventually you may find yourself eliminating the "little
unimportant tasks" altogether, thus freeing up time for you
to "live your life".
Does your business require you to be away during the
evenings sometimes forcing you to leave peanut butter
and jelly sandwiches for the family's dinner? Try this:
When you cook a meal on the weekend (casseroles or lasagna
work well), make an extra batch and freeze it. When you
need to be away in the evening, a hot healthy meal is only
as far away as your microwave.
