June is always a busy month for me.
In previous years it was exam season, and pre-summer deadline days.
Now, I’m not quite sure where the hectic comes from. I work for myself now, it should be easy, breezey. Actually though, it’s worse. I have this really bad habit of thinking that if I have minutes in the day, those minutes should be spent working.
I will find the balance – it might just take me a little while. I need to keep reminding myself that the reason I took this leap was so that I could spend time doing what I love. I don’t want to spend my every day flexing my hustle muscle.
If you too could do with some (borderline business-related) down time, here’s a round up of great things I’ve read lately.
