Screw Work Life Balance! How To Tip The Scales In Favour Of Life
Productivity Tips So You Can Do More of Life
There is a common misconception that work and life should always be balanced.
I don’t have a work life balance, I juggle. My life is always interchanging, there is truly no balance on the my scale.
As an entrepreneur work fits into your life, it is an important part, it isn’t separate from you, especially at the start.

Here are my two favourite way:
1) Set boundaries in your work:
Have actual client office hours. I have days and times that I will speak to clients. I give my clients 100% focus when I am with them.
Check emails at set times. I check 3 times a day, my clients know that. If it is an urgent matter they will call or text me, rather than going back and forth on emails.
Manage your social media properly. Choose the platforms that best suit you and your clients and only be active on them, try scheduling programs or outsource it.
Develop the ability to say “NO” with elegance and grace. Here are my top tips for saying no gracefully
2) Forgive yourself:
You only have 24 hours in a day and you can’t do everything all the time, guilt is one of the most over used emotions by those who want to do it all. Do the important stuff and quickly get over the rest. You may be everything to all people, but you have been the best version of you for that day.
‘Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Dont settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it’ Steve Jobs
