Balanced Life for Entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are always on the go and want to accomplish great things. Sometimes it behooves them to step back and take account of their life.

Many years ago, I attended a week-long leadership program and one thing they taught us that I still remember is that all great leaders need balance in their lives. I believe the lesson is appropriate for Entrepreneurs.

Think of your life as a square having four corners. One corner is you; the others are family, business/career, and community. In order to maintain a perfect square, or balance in life, each corner needs equal time to be devoted to it. You need to take care of yourself and your family. Of course, your business and career are important drivers. Lastly, you need to give back to the community in which you live.

There are occasions when one of the corners demands more time, but over a long period you need to strive to devote appropriate time to each corner in order to maintain a balance in your life and be “successful” in the real sense.
