Working long hours, living behind a laptop, handling every aspect of your business is hardly the dream that most business owners envision when they make the choice to start a business. Without careful thought and planning, it’s exactly where you can end up.
To establish a successful balance of work and business, you must understand exactly why you desire the balance and what that balance looks like for you.
Contemplate and then answer in writing the following questions:
1. Do I really want to own my own business? Why? Be specific?
2. What do I expect from my business?
3. What would my ideal work-life balance look like?
4. How do I want to feel each day? What do I desire most?
This clarity exercise will help you to determine if running your business, under its current model, will produce the results you desire. If you’re not currently setup for success in this way, now is the time to change course.
If you don’t have the motivation to contemplate and explore the above questions, simply ask yourself, “How do I feel most days when I lay down to sleep?” If it’s more often a negative experience, it’s a sure sign that it’s time to change.
