January has whizzed past already and that’s all thanks to the 12-14 hour days I have been working so far.
This month, I have promised myself to take time out every day to recuperate and realign myself. I must, must, must, remember to do Yoga every morning or evening. Or at least do 10 minutes of mindfulness exercises. Probably better to do them at night when my daughter is fast asleep! Where the chances of her wanting me are slim…
That’s it, I am adding it to my diary right now!
As someone who is responsible for making the lives of others run smoothly, I think I forget that I am only one person and can only take on so much.
Which is why I am seriously considering taking on a freelancer to do some of the work. I will wait and see how the first quarter goes and if things are as busy as they have been, I will definitely be looking at taking on an extra pair of hands. I know some of my customers prefer I do certain tasks myself so I will continue to do those. Just because I absolutely enjoy doing them! 🙂
It’s a tough decision and I wish I could do it all! Sadly, that wouldn’t be very logical.
I just have to accept it when it’s time to grow my business and put new plans in motion.
I have come across some amazing virtual assistants that I would really like to work with. They have the right level of patience, knowledge, versatility and drive I look for in colleagues.
It’s early days but I feel I am ready to take the next big step!
