Many entrepreneurs fall into the trap of working around the clock, sacrificing weekends, sleep, family meals, and breaks to keep their business going. Establish the following boundaries:
- Time: Set and publish “regular” operating hours and adhere to them. Determine which days you’re going to take off and stick with them.
- Space: Designate a room inside your home as “the office/shop” and try to maintain a separation between workspace and living space.
- Access: Determine when you will be accessible for professional and personal inquiries.
