How you schedule your day can make all the difference to your success - both in terms of productivity, and in how much you enjoy being your own boss. One of the amazing benefits of running your own business is the flexibility of creating a schedule that allows you to live the life you want. Today we are going to share our experiences and ideas for creating the ideal schedule.
One of the big aha moments for us was realizing that our schedules don't necessarily look the same every day. This is one of the great benefits of running your own business - the flexibility to go with the flow of your day-to-day.
Some days you're in the zone or running an event and work till 10pm or even 1am. Or maybe you'll need to run errands in the middle of the day. Or you might find that you work best and most productively when you stay up all night - but then you beat yourself up for not kicking your days off at 9am.
The trick is - pay attention to what you're doing not when you're doing it. If you're getting everything done, and you're meeting your deadlines, then don't beat yourself up for working an unconventional schedule.
It can be hard to shed the 9-5 mentality when you’ve done it for so long, but working for yourself means giving yourself permission to do just that.
