Ja­son ball, so­cial en­tre­pre­neur

Frankie - - REAL LIFE -

Work­ing on a new start-up so­cial en­ter­prise, Pride Cup, while si­mul­ta­ne­ously build­ing my cam­paign as a Greens can­di­date at the next fed­eral elec­tion, some­times I blink and my di­ary is full up with events ev­ery night. One way I make sure I get my down­time is to sched­ule in a few dates with my­self each week. I know that sounds weird, but when I book my­self in to have a morn­ing cof­fee, a week­end to laze about, or an evening to my­self, and it’s blocked out in my di­ary, it’s so much eas­ier to say, “Sorry, that week is full up for me.” Be­cause, visu­ally, my di­ary is full! Since do­ing this, I've been so much more pro­duc­tive, be­cause, by tak­ing the time to en­sure my brain has a chance to switch off, it means it can be at its best when it's time to be on.
