Sure, when you need to.
Every business requires a Hustle.
Economic changes & unprecedented time (ahem ahem ahem.... The C word!)
But is hustle the permanent hashtag for an entrepreneur?
I certainly hope not.
Hustle. Spelled backwards is "Eltsuh". And Eltsuh is the sound you make when you are burnt out, sick in bed and hurling.
The key is balance. We all say that, but how do you ACTUALLY do it. Right?
Don't look at me! What the heck do I know! I have a million ideas & projects and am helping people when I should be working on my own business! Oooooooh....
Wait...I do know a thing or two.
I make committments to myself and my immediate family because it forces me to stop, prioritize and stop.
I give myself permission to work when other people think I should be doing something else. But then I also give myself permission to read, study and connect with dear true friends, because I know there is an ROI. That may sound cold (ROI), but when you have hit rock bottom, have been hospitalized because you literally burnt out trying to please everyone...and not yourself...you start to calculate. If you have listened to me at all, you know I'm all about facts, figures, the nitty gritty. And we are all entrepreneurs right? So what's the ROI? ▶️ Peacefulness, happiness, trust, support. This is what you get back when you make time for most important people in your life.
It's up to you to decide what's important and how much you can reasonably give to each of those items. Every person has their own struggles. Their own limitations. Some people have nice nets parents have set up for them, (or grandparents) some are on their own and some are now parents themselves.
No matter what you do, if the thing that is stressing you out and is putting you on a heart monitor...might need to rethink that.
If that thing is you are lazy and procrastinate...👋 Slap! You need to figure out what you are afraid of, and face that fear asap! #mentalhealth is a #now #issue not a #tomorrow one.
There, that is one thing I know.
