Think of your life divided into three main categories. Work, social life, and family or love life.
We want all three areas to be great, but the reality of being a successful entrepreneur means that work takes up a massive amount of time and energy.
If you work a regular job you could probably balance all three areas, but to be happy as an entrepreneur will likely mean accepting that you likely can only have two.
You can use the “I can only have two” rule to decide how you invest your time.
You can invest in your social life, but that often means sacrificing your love life. Same in reverse. But this rule is not just an upper limit. If your entire life is work and if you only invest in one area, then you will burn out.
With these three categories, you don’t just get to pick two, you have to pick two if you want to stay healthy as an entrepreneur.
Find out why in this week’s episode of Forward Tilt.
