A lot of people ask me what is the right work-life balance for property investors? Many people invest in property so that they can have more time with their family. However, property investing requires time. This can be hard, particularly at the beginning, when you may also have a 9-5 job as well. In a recent video from my trip to Thailand, I explain how I manage my work-life balance as a businessman and investor.
In the video (above) I explain exactly what I do to create work-life balance as a property investor. I highly recommend watching the video until the end if you want a full understanding of my process. In this article, I will give you 3 amazing tips for creating work-life balance. If you want to help others regain balance in their lives, please consider sharing this article on social media. Together we can help property investors enjoy their freedom and grow their businesses.
1. Work-Life Balance For Property Investors: Setting Goals And Rewards
I don’t set yearly goals. Yearly goals are easy to put off and hard to measure against during the year. Instead, I set quarterly goals. Each quarter I set things I want to achieve in my business and then start doing those things. This is much easier to track and keep on target. I can know if things are going well or badly by measuring them against the goal I have set for that quarter.
I also reward myself with a trip away at the end of the quarter. This trip gives a level of work-life balance, while allowing me to constantly drive towards excellence. However, even on these trips it is important to keep growing, as I will explain in the next two tips!
2. Work-Life Balance For Property Investors: Using Downtime To Read
My next work-life balance tip for property investors is read on holiday. Most of us probably enjoy a good book on the beach, but make it one that will expand your mind to new opportunities. Some of the greatest minds in business, finance and economics have written books. Reading allows you to be taught by those experts and learn what they know.
While on my trip to Thailand, I read 6 top-rated books on money and gave my thoughts. Check out that blog post if you would like a couple of recommendations to get you started. Investing your time into the right books can make you a lot of money over the long term.
3. Work-Life Balance For Property Investors: Exercise
While away in Thailand, I was training for my next boxing match. Exercise allows you to be at your best. I have often found it hard to keep up exercise routines, but with something competitive like boxing I have a reason to. Find something you enjoy that will help you to be motivated to exercise. This will give you energy and focus in all areas of life, including business.
If you haven’t seen it already, check out my boxing match where I beat property trainer Rob Moore. It is a not to be missed fight! Having already beaten him in property education, beating him in the ring certainly motivated me!
