I say that I’m guilty of slackin’ off, sort of, because I have not been on top of sending my regular ezine to you, my loyal readers and for that I am guilty (although I am staying clear of feeling shame).
I am also guilty of not achieving balance in my business between keeping in touch with you and fulfilling my client needs. You see I have a problem and that problem is my business has really expanded in the New Year and for that problem I am extremely grateful.
AND, it brings the question to my mind, how do I, or even how do we, you and I achieve balance in our businesses? And, for now the balance I talk about is the balance between my outreach for new potential clients and fulfilling the current client projects I have already committed to.
I’m not sure what you do, but for me, as a web designer, there are deadlines almost every single day. And many times, I would actually say most of the time, it takes up my entire day. And so how do I keep in touch? How do I squeeze in time to make connection calls and publish my blog and ezine?
It’s a question that I haven’t solved yet as can be seen in my 3 week hiatus from my ezine and any blog posts. Ouch!
This afternoon that I sit down and write this, this is the first real break I have had in about 3 weeks. I have had some weekends off where I could have done my ezine but I just couldn’t get myself motivated and the longer I have waited to work on it the harder it has been to get back into it. Ouch again!
So how about you? Do you experience the same kind of “mis-balance”?
I know I want to get better and I feel really committed to making it work because besides doing the wonderfully creative and fulfilling work of web design and videography, I also LOVE to write and I LOVE to be in touch and make connections. And I LOVE to share what I know so that I can make an impact on other people’s lives!
