Day Of Rest

It is said that when you own a business, especially when you are a small start-up business, that you business is not just a full-time job, it is a full-life job. What they say is very true. As a small business owner myself, I can attest to this fact. Your business day starts the moment you wake up, and it ends when you go to sleep at night. It is normal for a business owner to dedicate 16 to 20 hours of their day to their business, and weave their normal life activities around this.

While many people think this is completely insane, and enjoy being able to leave work behind when they walk out of their job at the end of the day, for those of us that have been infused with the entrepreneurial spirit, it is just what we do. It gives us energy, fuels our desires, and charges us with the drive to keep going long after most people would stop.

For the service businesses out there, like plumbers, that offer 24 hour emergency assistance, their day technically doesn’t end. The reason for this, is that emergencies are just that, emergencies. They happen at any moment of any day. Imagine if you had your hot water heater rupture, or if in the dead of winter your furnace died on you in the middle of the night. You pick up the phone and call for help, and these businesses have dedicated themselves to their clients 24/7 for exactly this reason.

As will all things though, there needs to be a balance. Running full tilt 7 days a week, non-stop, eventually takes its toll on you. You may find that you are never fully able to recharge your internal battery, and notice you are becoming exhausted faster. After all, even Superman had to recharge, which is why he went to his fortress of solitude.

The same holds true when you own a business. You need to set aside a day to rest and recharge. You need to be able to step away from your business momentarily, and let loose to enjoy your non-business life. While many people find this hard to do, myself included, it is necessary to make sure you are renewed and refreshed, and able to tackle your business goals and objectives fully charged and energized.

In doing this one simple thing, finding a day of rest in your busy schedule, you can make sure you are able to give your business your all, which translates into being able to service your clients and customers better.
