Budgeting Time Just For YOU!

Time is precious. It can also mean money for your crafting business. But without some time for your personal life, what good is it? 'Pay' yourself some time as well to explore your inner self, embark on a new hobby or sport, or perhaps resurrect one that’s been lying dormant in your closet for months or even years. Why? To hedge against burnout. Statistics show that people who are driven to devote every waking hour to their business often experience severe health or psychological problems and thus sabotage their own efforts or business goals in the long run. The sad part is, they often have no idea ‘why’.

By scheduling personal time, you have the opportunity to relax, set aside any business worries and discover new talents within yourself. Fitness levels or previous skills needn’t be a factor in deciding what you want to do with this time you now have available. Check with your local community college or adult education office. They have numerous non-credit courses available for reasonable fees that will help you flush the worries and stress of the business world out of your system … even if only for a few precious hours.

It only hurts for a little while to carve a few hours out of your busy schedule. C’mon, give it a try.
