As I consider the foundational components or requirements to scale a service-based company, one thing I would list is ‘Owner/Partner Health Activities.’ The more my partner and I grow our firm, the more important this becomes. I’m not only talking about working out at the gym, though physical health is a component. There is more to health than the physical aspect. Most Google searches for components of health reveal 6 main health components:
It truly is difficult to maintain all of these as you grow a business, but it’s important to keep these in balance when you can. As in any growth-related goals, I think a healthy way to seek balance is to pick the top 1 or 2 health components that you are currently struggling with. Then seek some balance in those areas from people you trust, or even a business or life coach where you’ll feel free to expose your struggles in a private, safe setting. Another trusted individual can help you seek balance in ways you may not be able to see on your own.
Once you know the top 1 or 2 areas where your health is out of balance, you can ask yourself these questions about that area of health:
These questions can begin to help you sort through the imbalance, and seek to bring some health back into your life. Making decisions around health is a lifelong pursuit, so try not to beat yourself up because you struggle. We all struggle with balancing the above 6 components of health. The goal is to recognize the struggle, and begin making better choices when we can.
