Entrepreneurs often find it difficult to have a good work-life balance. It’s hard to relax when you’re off the clock because it can feel as if you’re never off the clock. If you’re struggling to find work-life balance, use these tips to get your life back in order.
Leave Work at Work
Give yourself permission to call it a day and shut the office door. Even if you work from your dining room, leave work on the table when it gets to a certain time. Turn off your computer. Make a note about the most pressing tasks and leave work alone for the evening.
Don’t Pressure Yourself for Perfection
Know when work is good enough and when you’re stressed for perfection’s sake. There comes a time when all the polishing you put on that project won’t make a difference. Don’t be sloppy, but don’t focus on small details that no one may ever notice except you.
Learn to Set Limits on Your Time
As an entrepreneur, it can be easy to make yourself available 24/7 to your clients, but you’ll never have work-life balance unless you set boundaries. No is a complete sentence. You don’t have to justify your no. Remember, when you say “yes’ to every business activity, you’re also telling your family and friends “no.”
Set Limits on Your Availability
Electronic devices make it easier to work on the go, but they also make it more difficult to shut down. Just because you get an email from a customer doesn’t mean you have to deal with it at that second. Practice keeping business hours, even with email, text and phone calls.
