Hereâ€™s a very â€˜real lifeâ€™ post for you. 🙂
Yesterday, I went into the clinic around 4 PM, and the Husband ended up helping a patient until 8 PM. Combined with the fact that we had both already been working since 8 AM, it was a long, long day. Iâ€™ve been having those a lot lately, huh?
Look, Ma. Real business clothes!
Then, we came home and had a family business meeting until 11:30 PM. This is why working with your family is challenging. Because work becomes life and life becomes work. The line gets really blurry.
Any tips on how to avoid this? I know we need to work hard to succeed, and Iâ€™m perfectly willing to do that, but we need greater balance. Not sure how thatâ€™s possible without creating extra hours in the day, but you all are always so smart. :) Iâ€™m sure you can think of something.
Eats yesterday afternoon included:
A glass of wine while working (hey, thereâ€™s an advantage to self-employment):
And a peanut butter sandwich:
Unfortunately, by the time we got settled/stopped debating marketing techniques, all I was in the mood to cook was yet another PB sandwich and leftover roasted vegetables. Eh, it worked!
Now, itâ€™s the next day and Iâ€™m pretty pooped, but we have another day of work ahead. Iâ€™m going to enact a healthy coping mechanism by hopping on the indoor bike trainer for a little bit to boost my mood and get my sweat on. Hopefully it will wake me up!
I loved all the support for January Joiners yesterday! If youâ€™re a JJ, remember that YOU CAN DO IT. Just keep things balanced, donâ€™t ask for perfection, and enjoy the small achievements. Donâ€™t forget that you are always welcome at HTP!
Andâ€¦ Iâ€™m off!
