Work-Life Balance: Proven Tips for Entrepreneurs to Get Home on Time
The pressure of owning and running a business is too much to handle and entrepreneurs have it the hard way with a never-ending to-do list at hand. Though achieving work-life balance is quite tricky for entrepreneurs yet you’ll be practically left with no energy if you don’t try and strike an equilibrium between your professional and personal life. One needs to step away from work and have enough time at hand do reconcile your domestic life and social life only to return to work feeling rejuvenated.
Most corporate office spaces in Gurgaon near metro stations, Delhi, and Noida endorse couple of recreational activities at work to let their staff have a healthy balance. We’ve some handpicked tips for all those entrepreneurs out there who are finding it hard to reclaim their lives after a stressful day at work. Let’s see what these are:
- Stick to a Fixed Departure Time, Everyday
Strict and defined time frames are very powerful and pushing as you tend to wind up the day quicker if you know you have to rush out by 5pm. Try and fix some incentive to leave on time like picking up kids from daycare, meeting friends, dinner date, some Netflix series you’ve to watch or anything.
- No Evening Emails
Don’t contribute to those never-ending email conversations particularly by the evening. That would unnecessarily keep you and other email recipients in the professional headspace, even after leaving for home. Refrain checking emails at night, just before bed, or even if they’re urgent, just keep a tab and reply in the morning.
- Guard Your Time
Having an overcrowded calendar may fool you thinking you’re super-productive but it actually reflects on your inability to handle tasks. Don’t indulge in back-to-back meetings, take a bio break between meetings to have some thinking time before starting the next one. Keep a day in the week where there are no meetings and commitments to make time for those other items in your to-do list.
- Disconnect from Personal Space at Work
While you’re your own boss at work and have the ultimate luxury of doing some personal tasks too while in the office, but believe me, doing so during office may eat up your precious time way faster than you’d expect. Disconnect from social media and personal phone calls (barring really important ones) and keep the wrk day focused.
- Plan Wisely
Plan your week ahead with dedicating certain task for days and schedule the meetings accordingly. Do this by Friday afternoon so that you start the next wok week knowing exactly how your week is going to be and what do you want to achieve. That way it gets extremely easier to accomplish tasks.
- Avoid Responding to Mails in Real Time
Make a habit of responding to a block of emails for maximum two or three times a day rather than spending all your day just rummaging through the emails. This helps you focus on other critical tasks at hand too and while this gives impression that you’re not lightning fast with replies, employees may even resist mailing you for smaller, non-critical tasks.
