It’s what you do in your free time that will set you free—or enslave you.

— Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

It's been a pretty tough week for me. While work is getting busier, it's getting tougher for my mind to shift into business mode. But like I said on a previous blog post (Day 6: Balancing Marriage, a Job, and a Business), my work must always come before my business. Prioritizing is essential to balance. 

There's no way I can continue to do this business if I let things slip at work. So I finished out the week at work fully concentrating on organizing agendas and getting ahead on projects. I put every spare second I had to work so I can accomplish all my tasks. It was tough, but like the last lap of a race I pushed through and gave everything I had. Now, I'm one week ahead of my projects at work! I won't stop there though. I'll continue to stay ahead because I believe this is a great practice to improve my time management skills, especially if I want my business to be successful.

So stay ahead of the game. Don't underestimate your spare seconds. Put them to work.
