As someone whose work revolves around the web, I have a tough time separating professional and personal matters. If I don’t keep up with the web I will fall behind, but then I got caught up with everything else as well. Refocusing on my priorities has been on my mind for sometimes, but now I just have to do it.
Blogging needs to be reduced, which I have been doing, but cannot go away completely. I need this platform to write down things that I can’t talk in other forms. Social media, on the other hand, I can do without. I am not going to delete all my accounts, but my activities will be spared. I just use Twitter to follow up on web development. Likewise, I’ll only read books that are necessary for my work. Reading for pleasure will be limited to children books.
Freelance projects are on hold at this time. I am not accepting any new clients. I am just going to finish up my obligations at the moment. If the projects keep dragging on and getting stressful, however, I’ll return the full deposit and move on.
My main priority is my boys. Right now I want to give them 100% of my focus when I am not working. In the future I might not be able to see them as much as I want to. I hope that day will never come.
