As entrepreneurs, we have a lot on our plate. We have to balance work, family, relationships, health, personal life, etc. It is not easy to find harmony and there are a lot of "landmines" that can get in the way that can stop us from ever finding it.
One of the biggest landmines is the hardest for us to avoid and that is being consumed by our work and our pursuit of success. Make no mistake, entrepreneurship takes a lot of work and can require long hours, but if entrepreneurs don't keep perspective and keep what is truly important forefront in their lives - then we become consumed by our work.
When people get consumed by their work, in some ways they lose their soul and pay the price. They lose sight of their core values and their lives suffer. Their work may be going great, but they are unhappy, unfulfilled, and ultimately unsuccessful as a whole.
The best way to prevent this from happening is to write down what is important to you and keep it in a place where you can refer to it often and keep it forefront in your life. Each week, you should start the week by reviewing these things and then as you plan your week and go through it, make sure to priortize these areas of importance and give them their due time.
If you do this simple exercise above faithfully each week, you will find that your entire quality of life will be better and you will actually be more successful in your business.
