Are you setting boundaries?
I don’t like anyone messing with my family time. Not even me. But it can be challenging, sometimes, to keep family life and business life separate. Especially when you’re self-employed or running a business. And by the way…don’t expect others to start setting boundaries for you anytime soon. You know what they say about expectations…right? They’re just premeditated resentments. It’s true in personal relationships. And it’s equally true in business.
Start setting boundaries.
It’s a healthy thing. Not something that makes you appear disconnected. Anyone who thinks that about you is probably not part of your target audience anyway. 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 you’re the one definitely in charge of setting your boundaries.
I had conversations, about this, a few times this last week. Some with my daughter. And one with a colleague. Boundaries go hand-in-hand with the values and schedules you live and work by. For example…when you value spending time, in the evening, with your family, you start by setting boundaries on that time. But if you find yourself consistently allowing work or something else to interrupt that time, it’s time to re-evaluate. Is it truly an important, valuable time? Or are you simply going through the motions?
Sure, that sounds rough, when you think of it that way.
But you gotta ask yourself the tougher questions so you can find the better answers. Your family life AND your business life will benefit in big ways. And don’t be surprised when you find yourself feeling so much happier and less stressed as a result. Speaking of results…
