Live Life On Your Terms
Many of us entrepreneurs put relentless hours into our business. It is said that the average workweek for an entrepreneur is 72 hours plus! That’s three days without any sleep! It shows how much dedication we have towards our success. It may seem very impressive, but is it really impressive for the human body?
Well, you see, on a weekly basis, there's a total of 168 hours. We spend about 56 hours sleeping, approximately 72 hours working, and that leaves us 40 hours (which is just over a day and a half).
As you can see, that’s not very healthy for the human body. As entrepreneurs, we know time is very valuable. Why do we spend so much time working hard and not maximizing our freedom with the limited time we have?
A person working a 9-to-5 has more freedom than an entrepreneur. Even so, the person working a 9-to-5 has stress working less hours than an entrepreneur. Many may say it’s the fact that the average 9-to-5 worker hates their job, which is mostly true, and that adds to their stress. But, really, it’s your lifestyle.
Entrepreneurs tend to lock themselves in the room grinding out with no rest. Why put your life around your business when you can put your business around your life! With easy access to the internet, entrepreneurs can work anywhere in the world, but they don't take advantage of it.
Think about your relationships. How are they? Think about your kids. Are you spending enough time with them? How are you physically? You see, although our business is prospering, our relationships aren’t. Is it really the lifestyle you want?
All in all, freedom is wanted by entrepreneurs. As said before, with easy access to the internet you can work wherever you want -- the park, the gym, the beach, you decide. The ability to have your own business on your terms is an easy goal to accomplish. It’s all up to you. At the end of the day, it all depends on your lifestyle.
Why be locked into your business when you can live life on your terms?
