Business 101: Multi-Task Work & Play

Its common knowledge that no one can work or play all 24 hours of the day.  I believe its healthy to have time to destress and relax daily.  Whether your relaxing task is exercising, praying, watching television, partying, etc. it’s critical to find something you enjoy.  However, we must be mindful of how long we spend taking a break.  Now if you are a person that simply wants to work your career for 30 years than maybe it doesn’t matter if you spend your free time every day doing random tasks.  However, if you have other aspirations, I advise on finding ways to multi-task to get make time for your entrepreneurial endeavors.  For example, when exercising on a bike, treadmill, or elliptical you could read a book, business plan, or your business emails.  If you are binge watching brainless television you could write articles for your website, create social media posts, and or update your website.  I myself, am writing this article as I have Lovecraft Country playing in the background.  Last night, I did something similar.  Another thing you could do it multi-task two or more of your daily obligations that have nothing to do with your business.  I do a lot of cooking at home so what I often do it cook and consume television at same time.  This allows me to focus on business tasks more when I’m done cooking because I’ve already had my fix of leisure activity.  Main thing is to remember that while somethings in the world are black and white, there are shades of grey that can be leveraged to make time for work and play in our lives.
