There is not enough time in the day!
How will I be able to get all of this done?
How do I have more balance between work and life?
Have you ever said this to yourself or even to someone else?
If you had more time in the day, would you spend it working or playing? We have all heard about balance and finding ways to create a work/life balance. Often what can happen as you focus your attention in one area; there is the potential for another area to be out of balance. Here are 3 ways to balance your work and life (and even get your time back):
1. Establish a routine and stick to it! If you exercise first thing in the morning; stick to it. Exercising can help you have more energy and lead to a happier and healthier you. If you answer emails first thing in the morning, so that you are not overwhelmed when hitting the office; stick to it. Whatever you do just establish and keep the routine. Remember, do not allow other distractions to impede upon the time you have scheduled.
2. Plan ahead! Do not allow things to be last-minute. It is okay to plan months and even years in advance. Yes, people can thrive under pressure. However, it is important that everything is not a pressure type situation. Just think, when you plan ahead, it can reduce stress.
3. Stop trying to do it all! The quickest way to complete all of your projects and tasks is to outsource! Well one way to get your time back is with a Virtual Assistant (hint hint)! Do not worry because you will still have creative control and this will still be your business! Who wouldn’t appreciate more time to focus on the strategic side of the business? Today, there are so many ways to get the job done and entrepreneurs should take advantage of “more hands on deck.”
