With the new year almost here, there is one resolution we all should make a priority as a business owner: make time to play more.
All work and no play is a surefire way to burn out, lose motivation and energy for your business. If you spend all of your time and energy building your business and don’t spend any time on yourself, your friends, your family and the other aspects of your personal life you are in danger.
- Do you wake up feeling motivated and enthusiastic about your day?
- Are you able to focus on your tasks?
- Do you feel creative and inspired?
If the answer is yes to all three then you’re probably doing just fine. If you answer no to any of the questions at any time then you need a break.
Instead of waiting for that “no” answer and feelings of motivation to wane, plan for some play-time in your life. Schedule time off and figure out what you need both personally and professionally.
And you will find, when you incorporate time for your life, your business will grow, you’ll get more creative – and you’ll be in the zone for success.
