First, welcome back to Expomaster, the only place to get positively exposed. If you’re self-employed or a freelancer, your work and personal life inevitably get mixed up, as the line is not so clear. So let’s take a look at just exactly how you can fashion enough energy and time for everything.

You don’t need to follow a fixed schedule; you could work at odd hours of the day or night. Your work goals become personal goals because you’re working for yourself. Your work location is possibly where you live.


So how do you stay balanced and aligned? Ensuring you have enough time and energy for everything?

MAKE PRIORITIZING YOUR SUPER SKILL

Again, with a traditional job, you have fixed ways of doing things. Your schedule, your location, your goals, etc. But as a freelancer or self-employed individual, nobody sets these constraints. You have much more freedom.

It also means you have more choices. You can set your own schedule, goals, and hours, among others. But what do you choose, and what’s more important?

That’s where knowing how to set priorities is critical to ensuring your time and energy are well and efficiently spent.

STAY ENERGIZED

Now, this is often overlooked, but managing your mental energy is even more important than managing your time.

How much you get done is limited by your energy. You can have all the time in the world, but if your energy is low and ineffective, you’re just wasting it.

So think about your current situation. How much attention do you pay to your energy?

Here are some questions to help you reflect:

  • Rest vs. Sleep—what’s the difference?
  • What do you think in terms of investing your energy or just investing your time?
  • What actions do you take to conserve or replenish your energy, physical and mental energy?

SET AN AUTOPILOT THAT HELPS YOUR TIME

With a regular job, your workday is pretty much set. You work from 9-5, for example, and there’s not much room for flexibility.

But if you call the shots, it’s the other way around. You have flexibility.

But it’s also important for you to set certain routines or habits as they account for many of your decisions and actions each day.

Imagine your daily routines are on autopilot. Where does yours take you?

How aware are you of the routines that autopilot your work/personal life right now?

Paying attention to and constantly tuning your routines is a keystone to helping you achieve that balance in your life.

These are just 3 ways to help make your time more efficient and to conserve your energy for the priorities in your life. There are many things you can do to instantly upgrade yourself and push past your current constraints to achieve the success that you desire.
