Tips for Managing Your Work/Personal Life Balance for Entrepreneurs – Plus, Special Bonuses!

If you have watched my latest video, then you know that balancing work and your personal life can be difficult at times. You want to get so much done, everything done, all at once. You don’t want long lists staring at you, you want clean slates that you can feel accomplished about.

So do I, but it is not really realistic. This is especially true for those of us that are not only managing our businesses but those of us that also have families.

By being able to manage your life and separate work from the personal aspects, not only will you be happier, but so will your family, and your business might just prosper because of this happiness. You will become MORE productive, you will actually get MORE done.

Here are some pretty awesome tips for helping you stay on track and keep the personal away from the work aspects of life, as difficult as it might be.

Resist the Temptation to Work! 

I admit it, I am totally a workaholic. You can usually find me clicking away in my bedroom, at my office, while I watch a show on the television. Even if I am not in front of those things, I am on social media, making my presence known there. It is horrible, I know. It is something that we all have to break away from!

Resisting the urge to constantly work, even if you feel like you have ‘down-time’ is the best thing you can do for your soul.

Give Yourself Office Hours!

And stick with them! I mean it! If you say you are going to work on work from 9am to 4pm, then that is all you have to work with. If 4pm comes and you have accomplished one thing – that’s it! You will learn to get on this schedule and be productive with those hours because you’re training your body and brain to know that this is all the time you have to work with. You need to make the most of it.

Schedule, Plan, Organize!

Even if I didn’t do what I do, I would probably still plan, schedule and organize because that is who I am. That is who my sister is, that is who my mom is. It is a part of my blood. If you are not much of a scheduler, or if you like to plan things but do not know where to start or if you’re like the bazillion of people out there that just want to feel like they have their stuff together, then I got you, my friend.

I use these awesome organizer tools that I am listing below…

In addition to these things that I print out, I also make sure to keep my planners. I literally use 3, though I could do it all in one I am afraid it might get chaotic. You can use one and keep all of your to-dos in it, and plan, schedule, and stay on top of things.
