Work is Great But Balance is More Important

HeartLowRes I have been fortunate enough to have worked with a large number of creative small business owners and entrepreneurs over the years. In all those engagements I've learned something very important.

Beneath all the goals and desire for achievement, everyone is really seeking the same three things.

They are:

  1. Balance
  2. Satisfaction
  3. And profit with freedom
The challenge is many small business owners and entrepreneurs suffer from the terrible too's:
  1. They work too many hours
  2. Make too little money for their efforts
  3. Have too little time to enjoy the richness that life offers.

I was thinking back on a segment of my life this morning before I wrote this post.

The motivation to do that came because I just started looking into adopting a dog (thinking about a little Westie) and was emailing the breeder.

That got me thinking back on the dogs I owned who passed away over the past few years.

How much more could I have enjoyed Sierra, Archie and Sedona? How much more could I have played with them or groomed them or petted them. Over the past 9 years I've had my business how much more time could I have taken to smell the roses that were abundantly around me?

Because of these life lessons peace of mind and balance have become very important to me over the past few years. I hope it is for you as well.

In fact in 2010 my mission will be to help people like you achieve balance, satisfaction and profit with freedom. I will be assisting small business owners and entrepreneurs one-to-one.

When you use your talents, knowledge and passion to create value that enhances the lives of others you will feel more joyful about your work and life. You can even do this with your existing business right now.

When you do, you will also realize the importance of balance time.

Balance starts with awareness. Ask yourself:

Do I take time each day, week and month to enjoy my life as it is right now?

Focus on right here and right now. They call this moment the "present" because it is truly a gift to enjoy.

Don't worry about the past that has already happened. There's nothing you can do to change it.

Don't be concerned about a future that has yet to occur. Your focus, awareness and actions in this moment right now will create your future.

Build the future you dream of with small actions today. And if you cannot envision an ideal life, call on me. I'll be here to help.
