Vision Board Friday: Taking Time to Live Life Will Only Inspire Your Work

"Taking time to live life will only inspire your work." How many entrepreneurs, small business owners, bloggers {or anyone!}  could use this reminder each week? Each day? It's too easy to get caught up in doing more, more, more to build your business, serve your customers, write another post, finish those projects.

I learned this lesson the hard way. I'm nearing the end of my second year running my business full time and have been reluctant to take days off. The burn-out started creeping in a few months ago, so I've taken a few days here and there this summer. Completely shutting out work made me more motivated when I did return. I had a renewed energy and inspiration. I still struggle with this, so it's definitely appropriate for my vision board.  I need the constant reminder.

If you're a blogger, you can consider this in another way, too. Many of my clients ask, "How will I come up with topics to write about every week? Or multiple times a week?!" My advice is to pay attention to things going on in your life and write down ideas every day. Even if you don't have a lifestyle blog, I promise topics will come to you. What questions are people asking you? What are you struggling with yourself? What have you learned how to do recently? Keep a notepad or app handy to record your ideas.

How does your life inspire your work? Do you take vacations or tech detoxes to renew your energy?
