Flew-Shot

Flew Shot is the title of my weekly posts about whatever random content I come up with. From writing about blogging and marketing to promoting my podcasting career, curating music & art to writing about sociopolitical issues and agriculture. I'll create one of these at least once a week, often more. Sometimes I use specific tags and communities for these posts.

HUSTLE, REST, REPEAT

Being the owner of a company or working for yourself on your own time can be tricky when it comes to time management. Particularly for those of us who tend to spend most of our time in go-getter mode. And when you are purpose driven, even more so. It's the passion that fuels us. Entrepreneurship and sole proprietorship often means that one is engaged in an ongoing hustle with our hand in several pots. We typically love what we do so we find little distinction between our private lives, leisure time and work hours.

Google, Facebook and Yelp tell the public that my business operates Monday to Friday from 10AM to 6PM, which is true. What Google doesn't know is that I have to do a lot to supplement my income stream. For example, blogging, freelancing and holding down a part time remote job are a few examples. And while juggling a few hats for a paycheck can be tiring and overwhelming, it beats the possibility of ending up in jail if I were to resort to my hustle of yesteryear, albeit far more lucrative.

What does any of this have to do with oversleeping? Well, when we are employed and rely on adhering to a mandatory regimented work schedule for a paycheck we don't have the luxury of letting our bodies dictate if and when we need rest. When your boss wants you at your desk or workstation at 8AM, even running several minutes behind due to traffic or a long line a the coffee shop, is often grounds for getting an earful. An earful you probably don't really need to hear, let's be honest. How many times have we been late for works and already felt terrible walking in the door behind everyone else. Did you really need to delay the start of your work day even more so with a 5 minute lecture from a grumpy supervisor about why it's important to be on time?

I guess I'm writing this post today as a way to say that I can relate, I understand, I sympathize and empathize with you if you've ever been in such a shitty position. It can be embarrassing. It can be quite frustrating, especially when your tardiness is truly outside of your control, more so when we begin to realize that even our bosses and the owners of the companies we work for are human beings just like us, and they too can wind up running into traffic or a delayed subway ride or even the occasional call from their body to stay the fuck in bed a few more minutes.

Fortunately, I've been able to transition slowly from the need to hold down a fulltime job to being able to dabble in running my own business. I've also been blessed to discover platforms like Hive where I can monetize my endeavors as a content creator. I've also been gifted with a knack for networking and have managed to rub elbows with many of the right people in the right places at the right times. Or so it seems lately.

As I stated above, I do enjoy go-getter status. And, at the same time, I give much weight to the idea that balance is essential. We must balance our diest. We should balance the time we spend cooped up in our workspaces and homes with the time we quality time among nature. We must balance our work with play and our play with rest. Whether you're well on your way to being the owner of a lucrative business or just entertaining the idea of entrepreneurship, take the time to study and practice time management. At least begin to contemplate adopting some healthy eating habits. Take self care very serious. When you have downtime, put the phone down, turn off the TV, go to bed. You'll miss more opportunities trying to hustle with no energy, than you ever will rejuvenating your mind and body.

One of the things I do as a consultant with a psychology degree and well over a decade of experience dealing with PTSD and addictions, is to integrate self-help modalities into the business models I create. Mindfulness, yoga, decluttering and logistical organization are among the tools I use and teach. I've said this on social media before - If you want to do business with me, expect some life-changing shit. Thanks for reading my post today. Let me know in the comments what sort of things you do to keep your mind and body rested and avoid oversleeping.
