I recently had to put together a "day in the life" schedule of my world for a women's entrepreneurial case study. (boy, WHAT a case study I am!) I was asked to categorize "B" for business and "P" for personal. After putting this together I realized that the two were so intertwined that that would be impossible. I love my work and live what I do so it is hard to distinguish the two. Not sure if this is good or completely imbalanced but somehow it works for me right now. I work constantly but LOVE what I do.
Considering I find it insightful to see how others live and balance various things, I thought I would share this with you. Have you ever put together a "day in the life" of your world? Right now mine is very writing-focused but this changes once deadlines are made, etc. I find that putting together an actual and ideal schedule can be enlightening to see how close you are to living your ideal version.
