IF YOU GET TIRED, LEARN TO REST NOT TO QUIT.
Since I entered the workforce at 18 I wanted to work Monday to Friday .... but I gravitated towards retail and odd weekend jobs in childcare and hospo so that didn’t happen. All through my 20s (when I wasn’t travelling) I was working 6 days a week, plus more odd jobs, just to pay bills and save for said travelling.
My first few years in business I spent every spare moment building, content, delivering 1000s of flyers about classes, doing free events and classes, designing, producing apparel lines, building websites, filming and editing YouTube videos, creating programs, retreats, events, building relationships with clients, supporting team (breathe) all while going to my actual day job and trying to also have a social life.
Since starting my work online it’s taken me a while to learn about structure and boundaries and health factors around being on technology too much and burning out etc. Even though I’ve been doing work that excites me to no end - work that I’m happy to do early in the morning and late at night - I now give myself a nice balanced schedule and I only break it if absolutely necessary.
So now I work Monday - Friday, only a few hours a day. Sometimes a little on Saturday if I feel the need to (with international time zones etc) and Sunday’s are my day off. No exception.
So you can have the things that you want but you have to learn how, find the right vehicle to use to get you there and do the important work tasks, so that you get things done that get you paid and you don’t do too much that you burn out.
You can’t get to success from a space of giving up and giving in. It ONLY takes small simple action everyday and lots of love, leaning on community/mentors and a good self care routine.
Here’s me on my recent spontaneous Sunday adventure to one of my favourite spots with my #bibclique girl @rawspirations_
