Have you ever noticed how your personal life creeps in and affects your business life? This seems to be even more true if you’re an entrepreneur or small business owner. A case in point:
This month, I’ll be discussing office management for entrepreneurs and small business owners. And, as I started to plan out this month’s content I realized how, once again, my life illustrates some points I think should be made. So, since this is the first of the month, the day I post off-topic stuff, I thought I’d share a bit about my life and how it fits into the topic.
Right now, my office is in a disarray. Piles of paper cover my desk, the floor in front of my desk, as well as the floor next to the floor in front of my desk. You see, last month I started some spinal decompression therapy and all my free time was sucked into a black hole.
But, its turned out to be a good thing. I’ve been forced to focus. I no longer have the luxury of working on all 15+ blogs and projects I’ve got going. I have to focus on just one or two.
So what does all this have to do with office management? Well, without it, I wouldn’t even be able to focus on this website! I’ve created systems that help me focus my tasks. Would you believe that those aforementioned piles of paper fit into that system? They do, however loosely.
