Work Life Balance - it's kind of like this.

No matter how we work, whether virtually or onsite, we all struggle with time management. It never feels like there are enough hours in the day to accomplish all those goals we set at the beginning of the week. Finding the time to work on your family life is crucial. You can’t be your best self at work when you aren’t happy and fulfilled in your off time. That fulfillment is the essence of true work life balance.

Becoming a great leader means understanding how to be more effective with the time you have. Are there opportunities for improvement? Just like when we write our SOPs, we can structure our day more efficiently. Thus, we can go through the process more linearly, allowing us to spend more time with our families.

Work Life Balance – It feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day

Trust me; we know exactly how you feel. You see the clock ticking away and remember all those things you promised outside of work. How in the world are you going to get those tasks done, making sure you fulfill your role in everyone else’s life? It’s a struggle, but there is a way to take hold of the chaos.

We suggest you start by measuring your time, and then figuring out where the loopholes are. Physically time out your activities and develop a schedule where you meticulously plan certain tasks at certain times. You’ll be shocked just how much time you spend doing tangentially related tasks vs. tackling the objective at hand.

For example, if you need to respond to online reviews, don’t do it all day long; schedule a 1-hour period at the end of the day in order to tackle all of them at once. It’s too easy to stretch a short task into an all-day affair when we piecemeal every part of it!

New Years GoalsThe New Year is here, everybody. Let’s continue our discussion from last month and push a little bit further. Last month, we discussed “Looking Back to Look Forward” to see what had worked, as well as what we needed to change. This month, let’s discuss greater goals and what we can do in order to set ourselves up for a home run in business!

While many focus on more immediate New Year’s resolutions, like “get this weight off,” haha, now is also a great time to consider long-term “dream” goals we have as business owners. This is the time to start fresh and think about the future….the future we have always dreamed about.

What Is Our Ultimate Goal?

For many of us, the ultimate goal in our business is to sell! We eventually want to reach a point where we spend all of our time doing what we love, with who we love, as our business runs smoothly on its own. If our goal is to sell or phase ourselves out of daily operations, then how do we do that? What systems do we need in place for that to happen? What do we need to have documented for our business to be marketable to a buyer? Start thinking about the groundwork and what you need to do to make that ultimate dream a reality.

What Can You Do To Balance Work Time and Fun Time in the New Year?

We can’t overstate just how important it is to nurture our work/life balance. I know you might be asking yourself, “What work/life balance?” That is precisely the problem! Evaluate your life, as well as how you want to spend it. Are you doing what you love with who you love, or are you struggling to get through each week? Restructure some things, then find out how to spend more time with your friends and family. The bottom line is this: the happier and more fulfilled you are, the better you will perform in business, period.
