Every day is the same thing – I pack my things and leave my office with just a few todo’s left. In order to get home decent normal hours, have some dinner and time over to relax, I convince myself that I just need a few minutes in front of the TV to finish the last tasks – in total contrary to the normal outcome.
I usually end up trying to have dinner, relax, read a magazine, write an e-mail, work on the next marketing project, going through different business model improvements and talk to my close ones – all at the same time. As a result I go to bed totally exhausted, too late and stressed. The fact that I don’t even manage to finish the few tasks that I brought home, just a lot of new open loops, doesn’t make the situation better.
So, is this a sustainable way to work? No, of course not. Therefore, in order to change this unbalance between work and free-time to spend with yourself and close one’s, My main takeaway of today is that I’m going to set up a rule to never bring any of my work home and always try to finish all open loops at the office before I leave. They say that as a entrepreneur, you’re never off from work, and I think most people who start their own business, including myself, agree with that.
Besides that, I’m sure that this will help me to find a better balance, clear my head, find time for myself and close ones and reduce the risk of getting washed-up.Comment
