Working for yourself

Most people who work for themselves have achieved work-life imbalance.

~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana

When you start a new venture, you dream of the times when work is abundant and you reap what you have sowed.

To get there, though, requires an incredible push and work (unless you are one of the lucky ones who’ve found something so easy to attract customers, which hardly requires any work). During this time, we often forget ourselves and put our health at peril. I should know about this; I do it all the time.

Last month I put my gym membership on hold to spend more time working on our product at Bean Mind. The product has enjoyed a significant push towards our MVP, but the cost has been quite steep. I feel less energised and need more breaks during the day. The good news is that I was reminded how important it is to get my work-life imbalance straight.

It’s important not to forget that without good health, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish so many dreams we would love to.

Not everything is lost; this past month has taught me to get on with it, go to the gym, and work smarter! 💪🏽
