So, I had asked a question about finding balance – how people did it, especially those who – like me – have a full-time job as well as a start-up or freelance job. Here are a couple of great tips I received:
– Manage your time and prioritise.
– I made sure I got as much sleep as I could, ate well, exercised and meditated daily. It is also important to have a good social support network, including other business owners. People can only be so supportive, and other business owners get it. There were sacrifices, and I had to take that leap of faith when I wasn’t willing to continue living like that. It is not healthy, and it is better to focus on temporary survival skills to work toward having more free time.
– Leverage resources outside yourself: Hire people to help you / outsource grunt work, rely on experts, network to learn shortcuts (it’s a good investment of time).
