It’s a good thing to be busy. Sometimes it’s even better to be overwhelmed with work. You get to do a lot of new, fun things and you make more money.
But, as they say, there can be too much of a good thing. And this is one of those times.
About a year ago, I started an informal policy of closing my office down at noon on Fridays. I use Friday afternoons to take care of business for myself and my company.
The last six months, however, have been so overwhelmingly busy that I have not had time to do this. This extended busy spell has made me realize just how important those Friday afternoons were — both to me personally, and to my business. Many things have been put on hold while I’ve been taking care of clients.
