Please help! I love Mondays…

…but I’m not a fan of the end of the week and I’m not sure what to do about it. So any tips and advice would be much appreciated.

I’m starting to think it is a self-employed issue. I used to be normal. Well okay not particularly normal but I used to have a five day work week with the first working day being bad and the last day great then two days off. Now, it’s much more complicated.

Why is it a problem? Well loving Monday is great. I start the week with the feeling of anything’s possible, but by the end of the week I always feel I’m chasing my tail and haven’t achieved half of what I had planned. The result is I feel I have to work through the weekend there are no days off. Is this a bad thing? I’m not sure.

I do feel stressed about the idea of working through the weekend, but it’s common for photography so why does it bother me? Is it just social conditioning? Other people’s expectations? And it’s not like I don’t spend a lot of time training (fitness) through the week, so my work life balance isn’t that bad. It’s the lack of structure I think that I have the issue with at sometimes…I almost feel like I spend more time remembering all the things I have to do that actually doing them.

So this is my small business blog asking for advice from all you busy people. How do you manage your time and commitments to make sure everything gets done and you don’t feel that it is all too much?

All advice and ideas are very welcome!
