Getting your life back

We had a great discussion in yesterday's 'Setting up as a Sole Trader' workshop about time management: when to be 'on duty' for your business; how to switch off without feeling guilty about work; how to concentrate on work without feeling guilty about all the housework, etc….

Then I read this article about a new phone, raising the same issues in a different context. As someone who has two phones – one for work and one for when I'm not working – I agreed with some of the suggestions. For example, I don't take my work phone on holiday because…er…I don't work when I'm on holiday.

What do you think? If you're freelance, running yourself as a small business, how do you decide when to be contactable and when to switch off? Are you using technology to help you do this?
