    No matter how much you love your business, no one can work 24/7 without risking burnout. But trying to find time away from work can sometimes seem impossible, especially when your business is relatively new.

    For many entrepreneurs, especially new ones, I suspect one of the most difficult things to learn is how to delegate tasks to partners or employees. I know that was a big one for me...

    How do structure your work-relax balance? What strategies have worked and have not worked for you?

    I like to make relaxation and family time a priority. Rather than waiting for a free moment to unwind, I work it into my schedule. As you mentioned, those who never take the time to relax will experience quick burnout; on the other hand, working that relaxation into your schedule can make you more productive when you do work. If only for that reason, time to unwind should be an important item on your calendar, even if it's only a few days a week.

    I'm disabled. I have to sit in my wheelchair to use my communication device which is also my computer. I can't be in the wheelchair all the time. I watch movies when I don't want to be in the wheelchair anymore but anymore.. I make it a point not to work on Sunday, try to get out with friends after church if nothing else.

    rWork\life balance is something I'm pretty interested in because I'm a travel agent.. I'm interested in other people's thoughts.

    I managed 10 Retail Stores when I was in the corporate world. When I first started, we would work everyday from Black Friday-Xmas Eve and most of these shifts were 10-12 hours or even longer. I was burned out by Christmas.

    Once the company changed it to working 6 days a week during that period and the Sunday before Xmas, my productivity and attitude were a lot better. I was refreshed and not tired.

    The key is to work smarter not harder.
