When I started my coaching business in 2014 I didn’t know what my business was going to look like, but I knew for sure that I wasn’t going to work 50+ hour weeks.
In fact, I wanted to do <30 hours a week, and be able to take all the school holidays off.
I wanted to build this new work life for myself and I wanted to be there for my kids and husband, and have time to my self.
And it worked.
Protect my non work time, always.
Which meant I didn’t have time to do #busywork or waste time on useless shit that made me feel like I was doing something.
I made a lot of mistakes, did do things that turned out to be useless. But I didn’t waste hours on it. In between the mistakes I had time to be with my kids and had downtime where I could reflect on those mistakes too.
But I worked part time like I wanted. I learned from my mistakes relatively quickly.
I was rested.
And it’s not just me who can do it. Look at Marc Randolph (Netflix co-founder) here:
We don’t have to be slaves to our jobs to be successful.
This post is part of my special Coaching Tips Series. This series was inspired by my clients and the core themes in their challenges. When we can apply these tips, we bring a lot of ease into our lives and step into our leadership. Want to talk it through with me? Call me and let’s make a Game Plan together.
