Friends, I need some advice. I am so incredibly excited about all of the projects I've got in the horizon, but also a tad bit overwhelmed with how to make it all work. There is definitely an art to balancing my full time job, my home life, my blog, and all of the things that my emerging event biz require. I am definitely not running out of gas, but I do find it challenging for there to be enough hours in the day.
On days off, I sometimes find myself too overwhelmed to prioritize, or focusing on the WRONG tasks. I have found escaping to a coffee shop for a few hours is helpful since it cuts out other distractions. Plus, it keeps me off of trolling Facebook and Pinterest forever- no one want to be That Girl at the coffee shop.
I must know: for those of you that have a blog, are photographers, are your own bosses- is there a secret to balancing it all?
I feel as though scheduling myself office hours will prove to be very helpful. I cannot honestly say that sometimes JB and I spend a couple hours a night just surfing the internet, catching up on blogs, or watching TV. Because we absolutely do.
I think coming home, making dinner, and then setting aside an hour or two per night could really work for me. Then, I'm done by 9 o'clock or so-- which is definitely early enough to be able to hang out with my dude or catch up on the DVR.
What do you think? I know there is no "magic answer," and that that different things work for each person. Different strokes for different folks, right? Please share what you find works for you! I needs ta know!
