I know I have been guilty of this in the past, sometimes I would get so busy I would forget to stop what I was working on and just take some time for myself and my family. I know a lot of you have done the same thing, and what we always need to remember is if we do not take care of ourselves we can not take time for those we care about most.
I do not know about you, but I know for me one of the biggest reasons and motivations I started building an internet business was so I could give my family the things they needed most, which included spending more time together. A lot of us get so focused on reaching certain business goals we forget about the goals we set out to do this for in the first place .
So this is my intent with this post is to encourage you to make sure you keep yourself healthy, energized and take some time to relax and spend quality time with your loved ones…………..they need us to! You dont want to make a boat load of money and then be in such bad shape you can not enjoy it?
I try to set up a schedule now a days so that I do not forget to take some time out, my family use to think I was crazy when I first started out, I would be working at my computer all night long after work, sometimes into the wee hours in the morning. I pretty much got stuck into a rut, if I was not at my job………you would know where to find me……….because I did and thought about nothing else. Until one day I realized I had gained 25 pounds and couldnt remember the last time I did anything other than work. I was always putting off everyone, tomorrow I would say, and then tomorrow would come and you know the routine.
Setting goals in every aspect of your life is extremely important, otherwise your life will become very unbalanced and so will you. True success does not come from money alone, I would deem myself a complete failure if the only important thing I ever accomplished was making money, but I neglected every other aspect of my life. Setting up a schedule is a great way to keep everything balanced and it helps prevent us from putting everything else off and getting burnt out. We all need time away from our computer screens…….
Here are some things I do every week to try and keep my own life well balanced
1. Eat right
3. Faith And Spiritual
4. Spend time with my family
5. Take the time to help some one else
7. Work on my business
8. Spend time with friends, I have lots of backyard barbeques
10. Spend some time outdoors, fishing camping, hunting
I still work very hard and am very diligent about reaching my business goals…………..but I just know I need to play as much and as hard as I work. This is why I use every time saving website or tool I can find……….that helps give me time back……..working smarter.
To Your Success And Happiness
