What should I do with my time outside my business?

Every bit of profit should be kept from your hard-earned sales.

Isn't it so great to ask what to do outside of your business? Not all business owners should run themselves ragged obsessing over their business. It sounds like you have acheieved a wonderful work/life balance, and that is to be commended.

Balance in life is key.

Therefore, in your free time, you might consider the following:

Read books! On average, CEO's read 50–60 books a year. Learning never gets old.

Spend time with people who bring out your best self. List the top 5 people who make you feel great, and make a point to get some quality time in.

Travel! "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." Go on an adventure (keep wifi so you can keep working as needed, of course) - but get outside your comfort zone and head out into the world. Try out a nude beach in the South of Spain. Taste the world's best cinnamon in Sri Lanka. Get lost a little.

Volunteer your time. Sign up to be a mentor for the youth. Be a part of a beach clean up. It's rewarding, fun, and makes an impact.

And finally - enjoy every bit of your life. Even the tough parts. Pain is part of joy too (without it, we wouldn't know what joy was). Every minute is one we won't be getting back - so be present and find magic in the mundane. You'll never question what to do with your extra time then!
