Balancing Your Business Life and Your Personal Life

Step 1 – Clearly define your 5 Fs (Faith, Family, Finances, Friendships and Fitness)

NOTABLE QUOTABLE – If you have no major purpose, you are drifting toward certain failure. – Napoleon Hill

Step 2 – Define what you want, not what society, your extended family, your culture, your political party or your geographical friends want

Step 3 – Schedule and time block out your ideal schedule and set clear boundaries

Step 4 – Embrace get used to saying “No.”

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.” – Steve Jobs (Co-founder of Apple and the former CEO of PIXAR)

Step 5 – Commit to embracing the fact that you are the only one that is happy

“Even if a person is great at their job, even if they’re a superstar at their job if they’re bad for our culture we’ll fire them for that reason alone. And performance reviews are 50% based on whether you’re living and inspiring the Zappos culture in others.” – Tony Hsieh (Pronounced Shay) (CEO of Zappos)
