Case in point. I love the sun and summer. Quite honestly, my goal is to work as little as possible during the summer and play as much as I can. The reality, though, is that I have bills to pay whether I’m working or not.
Which means, June is about working like crazy so that I can go have fun once the boys are out of school and the sun comes out. To make that happen I am using June to prep my marketing for the summer, making sure my real estate clients are taken care of, and ensuring those lingering to do’s are handled.
Yes, I miss a few workouts and some things don’t get done as much or often as I like, but it’s about working towards my bigger priority of having the ability to take time off.
With all the talk of work life balance these days, I find that people start to feel guilty when they have to say no to something because they need to work. Like they failed somehow. There is a time and place for everything and sometimes you just gotta get the work done.
