SNM078: The Little Things Make it All Worth While

The first trap that people working from home fall into is not working hard enough.  With so much leisure time and no boss, it’s easy to slack off.  It feels like there are no consequences.

The second and far more insidious trap is working too hard.  You spend so much time grinding, that you forget what you’re doing it all for.

Why Are You Working From Home?

Take a few moments to remember the real reason you want to work from home.

To take control of your destiny.

If you spend sixteen hours a day working, you will become untethered.

Sometimes a project is so exciting that it can suck in all of your focus, but if that goes on for too long you’ll lose touch with your motivation.

I live on the beach in paradise, but I still have to constantly remind myself to go outside.

More than a few days have gone by when I haven’t even gone downstairs in my house.

Without enjoying the journey, all of this effort might just be a waste.

Add “me time” to your schedule every day.

Set in a time when you will do something critical to your health.

You need to take care of your physical and mental well-being.

Sometimes, the work just weighs down on me.

There is so much that I want to accomplish and I always feel two steps behind where I want to be.

Without my athletic and relaxing hobbies, I would fall apart.

Don’t let your desire to succeed in the future kill your present.

We must maintain a balance if we are to survive.
