The secret to managing it all? Don’t.
It’s true. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s a signal to stop and do an evaluation. You may even want to schedule a business retreat so you can truly focus on your business.
You may have too much on your plate. Take a look at whether your clients are profitable. Is it time to raise your rates, expand your team, or turn away business?
As a business owner, you get to choose. Choose what is best for you.
Some tips to keep your work life in check:
- Create or update your lists
- Practice self-care
- Shift your focus from Time Management to Energy Management
We’re not saying you should miss deadlines or leave projects unfinished. It’s likely that the same drive that motivates us to be solos is also the culprit when we are hard on ourselves. We need to learn how to balance that drive.
