If you constantly find yourself re-actively responding to family or friends who don’t seem to understand you are working, set ground rules: Not just for your nearest and dearest, but for yourself. For example, set work hours and tell the worst offenders you won’t be available during that time period every day. Then respect your own rules if they call or “drop in”.
Don’t answer the door. Don’t pick up the phone if you see their names on Call Display. Don’t answer emails or Facebook PMs.
If you stick to your guns, they will eventually realize you mean what you say! However, if you make exceptions, you’ve only yourself to blame when they turn up on your doorstep during work hours. (If you don’t respect yourself and your clients, they won’t!)
Knowing your weaknesses is the first step to managing—and overcoming—their negative effects. The key is to identify them without judging yourself.
For example, if you know that you will procrastinate all day if you start the morning with Facebook, rearrange your schedule so that you do an hour of solid work first before checking your Facebook feeds.
