When you’re an entrepreneur and act as your own boss, it’s very easy to get sucked in and end up being on the clock 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sometimes, even if you’re not actually working, you’re thinking about work. And that’s not good for you. Ultimately, it can lead to a case of burnout and start to affect your job and personal life.
Here are three suggestions on maintaining a healthy work-life balance as an entrepreneur:
Making defined boundaries for yourself is the first step toward achieving a healthy work-life balance. This can mean different things for different people. Part of it a time commitment; try setting designated work hours versus designated free-time hours. It’s also about unplugging from work when you’re not on the job. Put down the laptop and tablet, and make a point not to discuss work constantly with your partner, family, and friends when you’re not at the office.
One problem that entrepreneurs often run into is the lack of ability — or willingness — to delegate. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that everything on your plate is completely up to you. That will only make you overwhelmed and less able to complete the things you need to get done. Try delegating whenever you can.
Stop trying to multitask.
We used to think of multitasking as a kind of superpower, a thing to be applauded. Now, the thinking is starting to change. More and more, we’re realizing that multitasking is really something that can add undue stress and affect your performance negatively. Focus on one thing at a time, and do it well, before moving onto the next thing. Giving your full attention to one thing, rather than trying to split it among multiple things, is a much better approach.
