It can be difficult to keep family life and business life separate. And that’s especially true when you’re self-employed or running your own business. I talked about this a couple of years ago when I said how you gotta set boundaries. Because without ’em you can get some unmet expectations. And some people call those premeditated resentments. True for personal relationships. And it’s equally true for business.
So family life and business life need boundaries.
It’s good for your health. Mental AND physical. But I don’t mean some goofy kind of boundary that makes you seem disconnected. Of course, anyone who thinks you’re like that is probably not part of your target audience anyway. But the main things is…other people won’t respect you (or your time) more than you do. So, just know and understand how important it is for you to guard your time.
And never forget…you’re the one definitely in charge of setting your boundaries.
I’ve had lots of talks about this. With my kids. And with my clients and colleagues.
I make sure my boundaries go hand-in-hand with the values and schedules I live and work by. Here’s an example in my life.
Because I value time, in the evening, with my family, I set boundaries on that time. And I do my best to not allow work, or something else, to interrupt that time. My family is so important to me. For a variety of reasons. So, that time is like gold. And I make sure that gold is protected.
Sure, that sounds like a battle plan, when you think of it that way.
