Balance. Balance. And more Balance.
My programmer and I had an interesting text conversation this past Saturday night. We both were left alone because our plans had fallen through. It had occurred to us that after a long week of work and providing our services we had neglected those that meant most to us – our friends. It’s difficult to find that balance between project work, clients, networking events, phone calls, and problem solving. Within all of that, calling your friends is not always a priority, and it’s very sad to say.
Most of my friends understand my schedule, what I am trying to build and accomplish and want to help me. But I need to help them too, be there too. My family understands even more, however that is difficult too, another balancing act – keeping in touch with my family. And what about “me” time, that doesn’t exist.
Monday was another busy day and it’s shaping up to be a busy week. However I have created a new challenge for myself. Take a time out for myself, for my friends and for my family. Everyone needs time to relax and decompress – I haven’t had a vacation in 8 years.
So it’s now my new work in progress. I’ll let you know how it proceeds!
