Time Management of business and private life is like dancing on a rope just under the roof in the circus. The most important, giving and supportive part of our lives is time with the life we fully enjoy, money or no money. That will normally be our private lives while business and work life is a different matter, another kind of passion.
Where Did The Hours Go To?
Having started a business, can be internet business or offline no matter which one, does change daily routines and can make us forget how to smartly and effectively divide the limited hours available for work, business and personal life.
It is so easy time-wise to overwhelm the business-part of life. I have seen many business peoples life suffer because they are so absorbed in their business that they don’t even realize they are forgetting their personal life.
Where Did It Go Wrong?
I know business people who still don’t understand when they find themselves increasingly alone and, even when a good friend dares the friendship and suggests some different ways to manage time, their comment is:
“Oh, I don’t need managing my time better, I already manage my time perfectly well.”
Actually so well that their personal life is getting destroyed.
The day they realize this is when they sit by themselves in a big mess thinking: “What Happened? Where did it go wrong?”
I don’t want this to happen to you.
I think there is a best way for everybody to exercise time management when organizing business and personal hours.
First remember the reason we work hard to get the business better, to get more freedom and time for all the things we dream about.
But without thinking about exactly how and where every days 24 hours are spent you risk jeopardizing everything including all your dreams for yourself and the ones close to you.
I don’t mean you have to say like: From 8.45 to 9.00 am I am doing so and so but it is important to take the time to nourish the two areas business and personal life.
