Crowdfunding is a fairly new approach to fundraising in Asia but it has already been raking in a lot of positive reviews over the past few years. There are many companies that were founded based on the platform and the basic ideas of Crowdfunding and they have been doing good. There are even some crowdfunding-based businesses that are leading the way in some industries like property development and even book publishing
This put a lot of pressure and weight on the shoulders of up and coming project initiators as they try to take their business to the next level or to just simply get started. There are a lot of things that they need to accomplish and time management is one of them. It might come in the plan to just concentrate on the business for the next few weeks or even months.
But this can backfire in other areas of your life. It might even come at the expense of the very same project you are working hard on. If you lose sleep and come in the next day all tired and low in energy, your output would also be dismal. Time management is also important in keeping Family time and making sure that you get to put in enough quality effort in all aspects of your life.
Crowdfunding while balancing your time
It is quite a challenge to strike a Balance between life and work commitments and time but here are a few things that can help you put together a balanced effort.
- Know your priorities. You would have different Priorities in your life as you go through different stages from being single in a first job to getting married and even having kids running around the house. Your priorities will different depending on what stage in life you are and it is important that you understand what this is. Once you know your priorities, you can better allot time for everything else. If you are still single, you can put in more time for the project. If you have a family with kids, you need to work around your Schedule in order to balance work and family time.
- Keep a schedule. One way you can accomplish this is putting together a schedule on your day to day task. But this list and schedule is only as good as when you stick to it. If you just keep the schedule at home or in your smartphone then that is of no use to you. Have a schedule and follow it so you can have a better chance in balancing work and family time.
- Understand that it will take sacrifice. If you need to put in time for the project but you have a soccer game with your eldest, you just need to understand that you need to make some sacrifices along the way. You can go to the game to spend time with your child and the family and put in a longer time at night when everyone else is asleep. There will be a lot of time that sacrifices will be needed to strike that delicate balance but it will be all worth it at the end of the day.
