Being your own boss is great but a lot of times, it’s entirely unglamorous. Since leaving my full-time job to start Lemonade, it’s been challenging to get into a consistent routine because life with three kids, a new company and this side hustle is complicated… and messy.
I’ve been asked before what a typical day looks like for me and I wish I could answer consistently. Most of the time it’s just running from here to there and back again. But in order to instill some sense of normalcy, last fall I started implementing my own personal policy: No Meeting Mondays. There are some VERY minor exceptions to this rule – mostly when I am traveling and will be out the rest of the week – but otherwise I am committed to it. And it’s made a huge difference in my productivity, my plan for the rest of the week and best of all, it’s all but eliminated the Sunday Scaries.
It’s also become one of the only days of the week where I can guarantee I will fit in a workout, another little thing that makes a big impact on the remainder of my week. Keeping satisfying, nutritious snacks (like a ZonePerfect® High Protein bar) on hand is key, too. If nothing else, I can look back and say, “well at least I worked out on Monday.”
