How hardcore focus can quickly lead to neglect

Eye on the prize, the right prize

In the freelance/entrepreneur space you read and hear a lot about getting shit done and hustling. Regardless of your feeling on either of those phrases they are true if you want to reach a certain level of success, and that is what I thought I was doing. I thought that I was focusing and getting shit done, but I realized that instead of really focusing I might have been losing sight of my true priorities. The client work that helps me pay the bills.

A healthy balance

Having a side hustle, or whatever you want to call it, is a fantastic thing. It keeps you motivated and gives you a reason to push yourself. What I am having to be mindful of is keeping the scale of client and personal work balanced properly.
