Working 7 Days a Week
With the downturn in the economy, more of us are working more hours and harder than ever. And those of us in small home businesses are working even more than that, if possible. How many days a week do you work?
Since I left my full-time job in December to work on my home-based business, I have tried to save at least one day a week to relax, do my quilting. It hasn’t happened very often. Most weeks, I finish what I have to do just in time for Monday morning to roll around.
And it isn’t just about work. I had to get all the income tax stuff together for my business and our personal taxes. That took several weeks. And I had to watch my grandchildren during all those Snow Days back in December and January And … well, you know what I mean.
So my question to you is, “How many days a week do you work?” I hope you take time off. We all need it. But we need even more to be able to make a living, so taking time off might have to wait.
How much of your work is really necessary and how much is just ‘busy work’? I’ve been trying to focus more on getting done what I have to do, and less on wandering around social media and the BSO’s (bright shiny objects) on the web, so I can have some time off on the weekend to relax and be with my family.
How about you? Are you working 7 days a week? What do you do for fun? Is it work? Or is there something else you are working FOR?
