Lose any excess weight: If something is stressing you out, then cut it loose. The same applies for people. (Disclaimer: this does not mean firing all of your employees and closing down your business!). There’s a difference between good stress and bad stress. Surround yourself with people and things that make your life easier, not the reverse. You’ll soon feel much less weighed down!
Be a better person: You know how. But if you don’t, there’s a Dalai Lama Twitter page that generally gives me a good case of guilt; I’m pretty sure makes me a better person for at least 20 minutes after reading it.
Get more organized: The thing about running your own business is that you don’t have to do everything. Learn to delegate and give responsibility to others, you’ll feel less burdened and they’ll feel valued – it’s a win-win.
Invest in your family, not just your business: I mean the family you have at home – not in the office. They do exist, but if you keep sending your spouse’s calls to answerphone, he or she is not going to be around for much longer! Oh and tell your kids you love them, because you’re busy, super busy, and although the expensive Christmas gifts were awesome….they still need to know.
Don’t just make money – spend money: If you simply keep working towards the life you want, you’ll never live the life you have. Go on worldwide adventures, do some charity work, learn something new, start a blog…Or you know what? Just buy one of those awesome home cinemas and choose one night of the week to disconnect from the world and flake out in front of it. A bit of Saturday night TV is as good as meditation for zoning out from the world if you ask me.
Oh and one more for good luck…
