Since I have been working day and night my life is all over the place. When I use to work a regular eight to five job, I would find time to exercise. I would exercise during my breaks, lunch, before work, and after work, I had time. Now that I am on my own schedule, which means six am until eleven p.m. most days. This tape about success keeps ringing on my mind, “Don’t go to sleep.”
I have to admit I am a driven person, I aim to complete whatever I start. Some may consider that a good thing, but others may consider that a bad thing. It a good thing to complete whatever you start, but it can be a bad thing when you don’t leave room for extras daily activity. Right now, every minute is being used and every extra minute is being used. I won’t go into all the projects I am doing at one time.
When I use to work an eight to five job, I had a list of things I wanted to do. Since leaving my job and work independently the list seem to have gotten larger instead of smaller. I have not gone on that cruise or traveled all over the states, that is on my “To Do” list still.
There are people who make less money than I was making and they seem to be able to go everywhere that they want to go. Don’t get me wrong I would not be doing all this writing if it was not a love and a dream of mine. But of course there is a “trade-off”, I will use this word phrase a lot in my writing. I have completed so many more things in my life, but of course there are things I still have not done. Now I am at the hard part, making time for the things I need to do like exercise on a regular basis. I know I need to exercise to stay healthy and physically fit. So I need to incorporate exercise into my schedule.
What are the trade-off you have had to make: less time with friends, family and kids? I know it can be hard when you have your things to do and your family things to do. How about just sitting and watching a movie. I can not tell you the last time I sat and watched a whole movie.
