Taking Back Your Life Washington DC

One of the downfalls in running a home-based business is that many individuals are not able to break away as they would if they worked outside the home. It is too easy to walk by your office, pop in for what you anticipate will be a quick five minutes, and end up coming back out of your office an hour or two later. When your office is in the home, the hours can blur together, and, if you are not careful, your business will consume you. There are two very simple ways to overcome this problem.

Taking Back Your Life

Do you feel like you are a slave to your home based business? Are you working seven days a week, with many of those days being 10 - 12 hour work days? If your answer is "yes", you are not alone. This seems to be the syndrome that many home based business owners fall into.

One of the downfalls in running a home-based business is that many individuals are not able to break away as they would if they worked outside the home. It is too easy to walk by your office, pop in for what you anticipate will be a quick five minutes, and end up coming back out of your office an hour or two later. When your office is in the home, the hours can blur together, and, if you are not careful, your business will consume you.


There are two very simple ways to overcome this problem. First, you need to set a schedule as you would for a job outside the home. Allow yourself only so many hours during the day to run your business, and stick to it. Just as you would have regular office hours when working outside the home, you need to create work hours for your home based business. Working at home allows you the flexibility to decide what hours they will be, but be fair to yourself and your family by sticking to your plan.

Second, prioritize your work every day with your "to do" list. Make sure that the most critical jobs and tasks that need to get done are at the top of the list. That way you are sure to hit those deadlines and feel better at the end of the day knowing that you have not left an important project unfinished. And you will not feel the pull to get back into your office every time you walk by during your non-working hours that you have set in place.

For most of home business owners, the reason we have chosen to work at home is because we want to be home with our children and there to meet the needs of the family. If you let your business take up too much of your time and energy, you are defeating the purpose of your original goal.

Take back your life. Allow yourself the freedom to be the parent, spouse, and friend that you need to be. Your business is important, but so are you. Don’t lose sight of what is truly valuable during our short time at home with our children. What you don’t get done today will still be there tomorrow.
