This week has been a very busy one! Many voice overs and videos for clients, along with getting marketing done for You Are The Project, and accomplishing the goals I set for myself as well. When I first became an entrepreneur who works from home, there were many things I had to learn to do differently, time management was a big one for me!
I greatly minimized the amount of TV I used to watch as I realized that sometimes it can be a distraction. I do however still enjoy movies and TV, but I use my time wisely. Lately I've been stuck on an Australian show I found on Netflix titled Wentworth! My love and I make time at the end of the day to enjoy the series, only after we have completed our work day. Being an entrepreneur takes a LOT of discipline, otherwise a person would fail horribly!
The most important key to life is balance, balance in all aspects of your life. You don't want to work too much to the point where you cannot enjoy your free time or don't make free time to enjoy. You also don't want to relax/enjoy so much to the point where you overly indulge as that can be detrimental as well. You also must understand the importance of setting goals and accomplishing them. Be productive, be happy, discipline yourself. An overall balance has to be established and rewards must be put into play so that balance is maintained.
Even when you have busy days, weeks, and months, still make time to enjoy yourself. Life is about creating our own happiness, I certainly have made sure I enjoyed myself this week even with all the work I had to do. I also love what I do as an entrepreneur so that makes things even more exciting and joyous! Regardless, work with what you have and create that balance for yourself. Don't aimlessly allow circumstances to dictate your level of happiness, create it for yourself through better time management. Your free time matters!
