Entrepreneurs are in a tough spot.
We take on tremendous responsibility to improve our lives, but sometimes it comes at the expense of our lives. We know that a happy, healthy entrepreneur is more successful than an overworked one, but business doesn’t care when you need a break. We want freedom, but we chain ourselves to our computers.
How we can have lives and businesses at the same time?
It’s Q&A Wednesday, and one listener is doing great, business-wise, but life is passing him by. He’s got no social life, a messy home, and no idea what to do about it. It begs the question: if your success isn’t making you happy, is it really success?
Sometimes, we entrepreneurs forget that high priorities aren’t the only priorities. Business, however much we enjoy it, is a means to an end. Moreover, actually enjoying your life as an entrepreneur is your greatest chance to be any good at it!
If there’s no balance, you’re going to sink — personally and professionally.
Fortunately, we’ve got some strategies that can help. It doesn’t necessarily mean doing less; it mostly means doing things more efficiently, more effectively, and sometimes letting others share the load. There’s no “one size fits all” solution, and no prescription work/life balance that’s perfect for everyone — but we can help you adjust the scales.
