No, that was not a typo. Yes, there’s a full weekend ahead for the Quinet family.
If we’ve been connected on Instagram, you know how busy I am.
Plus my weekends are busier than a whole week put together because I spend 5 days worth of my time with my family.
It’s something I’d trade nothing for.
And I know most of you do, too.
Whenever I ask people why do you want to scale your business?
I get answers from “to sell” to “be an entrepreneur of influence” to “leave a mark.”
And almost after a split second, “to make my family happy” follows.
Unfortunately, this is a myth.
As we grow our business, our list of to-dos also grows.
The time and energy meant for family are compromised.
As I reflect on this, I figure out the mindset that saved me from this “common reality.”
Taking whatever time I have right now and condensing as much activity I can into that moment.
I’m not looking at managing an hour; I am looking at eating minutes and seconds.
I want to control my 24 hours in a day, 168 hours in a week, and 48 hours on a weekend…
And make it 240.
I always ask myself: Do I want to manage 30 minutes or do I want to control how much I can spend time with my growing kids in 30 minutes?
See the difference here? Instead of trying to manage it, what if you focus on controlling it?
This is what I love doing. And I want you to do the same too.
- Telling your family that you don’t have time is the biggest excuse you will ever tell them (and yourself).
- Schedule your day, list to-dos and by any means, get them done.
- Schedule as many family moments as you can this weekend.
A lot of people have a misconception that a schedule will control their lives, when it should be a tool for them to use to improve it.
I’m grateful to be living under a roof where my husband and I can make this clockwork work. And I’m excited to see you apply the same.
Remember: If your time makes you feel miserable, you’re not using it right.
Let’s be the masters of our times.
