Rule #111 – Too Thin for Comfort

As an entrepreneur, time is certainly not something you have in excess. Running your business, regardless of the size, is time consuming enough, but when you throw in business meetings, charity events, different boards and organizations you chair on, speaking events, and other schedule constraints, there is little time left for sleep or your personal life.

Don’t stretch yourself too thin. Before you take on a new commitment, thoroughly examine your schedule and determine if you truly have the time to put your full effort into it. Your time is limited, so you cannot possibly agree to everything. Don’t be afraid to say no sometimes.

How do you keep from stretching yourself too thin?
