They don’t know when to quit

Nate (my husband) and I spent Saturday at my parent’s house. And my sister was staying there for the weekend with her dog.

My parent’s got their dog right before Christmas. As you can tell from the picture, they both have Boston Terriers (and I love them both to pieces!).

When we arrived Saturday morning we were immediately greeted by the dogs. They were so excited to have more people to pay attention to them!

However, they quickly grew bored with us and started playing with each other.

After a few minutes, they were separated and I said something to the effect of, “Let them play! They were being good.” And my sister said, “they’ve been playing all morning—and they’re Boston’s.”

I immediately understood.

Boston’s don’t know when to quit.

You want to throw the ball 50 more times, they’ll run and get it until they literally make themselves sick.

Another dog wants to play, LET’S GO! And then keep going.

It reminded me of us entrepreneurs and our businesses. There’s work to be done, so I’m going to KEEP ON DOING IT!

Something unexpected has happened in my personal life, but I’m still worrying about ALL THE BUSINESS THINGS!

Sometimes we’re like those little Bostons and we don’t know when to quit, when to take a break.

Which brings me to this week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie topic: Work/Life Balance.

Let’s talk about what it means and how to “achieve” it (catch the replay to see why that’s in quotes).

​​​​​​​What are your thoughts or frustrations with work/life balance?
Comment below and let me know.
