As a business owner, your work never ends. You’re passionate about your business, and you probably extend your work long into the weekend. Some of the most successful people in the world face similar trials. But what made them successful also shows up in how they balance work and the weekend. Follow their example to create a better balance in your business for the long haul:
Start your weekend off by allowing your mind to rest. Spencer Rascoff, CEO of Zillow, says unplugging gives him the chance to reflect on upcoming business prospects or new ideas so that he can make a fresh start the next week.
Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas, sets appointments for the things he truly wants to do on the weekends. Even if it is merely to read a book, he sets that appointment and commits to it.
Weekends are an exceptional time for family. Take a leaf out of Oznoz creator Shabnam Rezaei’s book and go on mini-adventures. After spending her week running the online bilingual children’s channel, Rezaei likes to take her daughter to museums, parks or for a swim.
