I have always been a “busy” person. I rarely find memories in my past where I have not had something going on. Even my restful moments were spent “doing something.” (like knitting, reading, gardening, talking with friends) I am sure most, if not every, Mom Entrepreneur can relate to that statement. I have to care for my kids (make food, do laundry, clean the house, drive them around), I am the boss of my business which means I am in a constant state of building &/or managing my business world, and for myself yeah… that is where those “down time” activities come in. I have heard “Wow, you are so busy,” and thought to myself Is this an insult or a compliment?
What toll is this behavior taking on me? Do the things “keeping me busy” get me closer to my goals or are they getting in my way? What can I do to be more effective, more efficient, and more balanced? What can I delegate, and to whom?
These are questions I regularly ask myself. If I didn’t I would be spinning my wheels and getting nowhere.
Today was a rather short, and to the point, post but I promise you if you get yourself in the habit of reflecting on these questions, they will serve you over time.
