Episode 121: Show Me Your Calendar, I’ll Show You Your Problems

After a 10 hour shift on the tools you come home for some quality family time. 

For about 90 minutes… 

You then head to the desktop to finish up some estimates, quotes & payroll. 

Bedtime rolls around sometime after 11 when you find your partner is already out. 

Unlike her though you toss and turn. 

It’s hard to sleep with all the stress you’re carrying from owning your business. 

But eventually you drift off. 

And at 5am you get up feeling exhausted, ready to do it all again. 

And just before you walk out the door you ask yourself… 

“How long can I keep doing this?” 

There’s a lot of things you need to do to escape that cycle. 

But the first and most important thing is managing the hours you spend at work better. 

When you plan your time better you are naturally more efficient.
