There was a time when I wanted to get done a million things and needed to get done a million things.
There was a time when I couldn’t focus on what I needed to focus on.
There was a time when I needed to REALLY focus on the things that needed to get done.
My to-do lists were bigger than my laundry pile, seriously.
There were must-dos and do-laters.
At the end of the day though I couldn’t get any of it done!

Like… always being online.
Like… always checking your email.
Like… hearing a ding and checking that tweet (or FB message)
Working from home with your own online business is super challenging at times. There is no boundary that turns day into night, office closed, or set end time. There is no clock to punch (time clock, unless you actually punch your clock, hehe).
