Have you ever stopped to consider what your boundaries and non-negotiables are in your business?
In today’s episode, I’m sharing about setting healthy boundaries and non-negotiables to create a sustainable business that fits you well.
What inspired this idea? My dog Mochi! As she set some pretty strong boundaries with a visiting, much larger dog. Situations like this make me think of business, of course!
We start by defining the differences between boundaries and non-negotiables. Next, we discuss how they can help you establish a healthy and productive business.
In my own entrepreneurial journey, it took time, but I learned to first establish healthy boundaries and then enforce them in my business. Needed changes for my business as I was close to burnout.
These healthy boundaries lead me to understanding what my non-negotiables were and setting aside time for them.
My list included deep thinking about the business and time for faith, family, and friends.
How do we keep these healthy boundaries and non-negotiables in place?
- Give yourself a break: Don’t try to catch-up. Be okay with days here and there that just don’t go the way we want.
- Let go of the expectations of others: We glorify busy. We fill our schedule, our work with many activities with things we are told that we should do in our business.
- Schedule it: Get it on your calendar, block out that time, and honor that commitment to you.
- Evaluate Often: And then we also need to evaluate these often.
If you struggle to define your own boundaries and non-negotiables, I invite you to consider your core values and how they can help in shaping these essential aspects of your business.
Remember to take some time for yourself and your business. You owe it to yourself to create a business that works for you and not the other way around.
