Everything you do each day counts for your business. Every moment of your life counts, so don’t waste your time or take it for granted. A lot of business owners have come to me asking how to create an extremely productive lifestyle that will grow their business.
The reality is you don’t have to create everything in your life, but you need to create something. Whatever you do in your personal or business life must make a positive difference and add value to your life.
By creating a successful lifestyle you’re much more likely to do things that improve your health, ability to work, stress management, and overall well-being.
1. Schedule Regular Nonwork Activities
Start running, working out, getting a massage or going to yoga regularly. Make sure you’re not a gym rat, but that you spend a certain amount of time each week working out or having some type of exercise.
Make sure that you schedule these activities for the entire week. By planning to do something fun each day you’re working on setting boundaries for yourself. You’re setting a schedule that you can count on and feel energized to do each day.
If you don’t enjoy working out or yoga you can build those into your schedule for a short time. For example, running is a great workout, but it can be extremely boring to run or go to yoga all day.
2. Take Regular Breaks When You’re Working
You need to be intentional about taking breaks, and that’s easy to do if you have a business that allows you to take regular breaks. When you’re working in your personal life or with a business you have to be creative about setting work schedules to make sure you’re always able to take breaks.
At the same time you need to take a break or work when you’re feeling excited, motivated, and inspired. When you’re not feeling like doing something and you want to take a break you have to make time to do it.
If you can’t find time to get out and take a break you’ll inevitably feel burned out or just go back to feeling tired. Make time to run, exercise, or get a massage each day. Start setting aside specific times each day to work or get a break and then stick to it.
3. Work with Different People to Enhance Your Career
Working with the same people over and over gets boring. If you’re feeling bored you’ll start trying to do the same things over and over. You can’t figure out how to work with new people because you don’t know how to make those connections.
Translating Everything into a Lifestyle Business
Opportunities to use something like software for catering business owners to run a lifestyle business that fits naturally into your life becomes that much easier when you’ve mastered the three mentioned areas of personal development and lifestyle enhancement. It’s easy to monetize a lifestyle that appears to be the envy of the average person, whether you’d be selling products and services directly or as something like an affiliate, direct marketer, etc.
