Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #94

22 Jul 2014 Uncategorized

After finding myself working at 2am, I wondered: How many actual hours do we spend on our online businesses? You shouldn’t be spending more than 30 or 40 hours per week working full time. You need the rest of your time to sleep; take care of family responsibilities such as children and your lover or honey, etc.; take care of your personal bookkeeping; shop for food, clothes and other stuff; accomplish chores such as housework, cooking and errangs; doctor’s appointments; and, of course, have fun. Sit down (when you have a moment), and make a spreadsheet with ALL of your responsibilities in life, then time them for a week. After one week, take a look to see what your work/life ratio is. You CAN have it all; you just need to prioritize. You may find that you start and stop work many times during the day, sometimes with just plain old distractions. These will be evident to you after one week. This test will enable you to find ways to streamline.
