Sometimes running your own company(ies) feels like your to-do list is the size of the Pacific Ocean. I finish one task and it’s on to the next, this continues until about 4pm then I take a sunset walk break with the Frenchies and back at it til dinner at 8. Because I work from home the computer or ipad follows me to the bedroom and sleeps on my nightstand. I’ve found I can work about 12 days in a row and then I start to fall apart. My focus is pathetic, workouts sparse and I’m all around cranky. I’m sure some of you experience this feeling too. When do you say enough is enough?
If you’ve been reading my blog you know I use it as a way of holding myself accountable. Not just for my job but for exercise, healthy eating and traveling. You see I haven’t had a traditional boss since early 2010, I work by myself at home and live far away from my family. It would be VERY easy for me to watch tv all day long.
I’m headed to Palm Springs this weekend with friends I’ve known since 7th grade. I rarely see them now because we are spread out all over Southern California. But I’m making a promise to myself that I will take 2 days off! Saturday and Sunday to be exact because Friday will be store visits, customer service emails & shooting my adorable friends in the new BORELLI Holiday collection. What are you up to this weekend?
