3 BUSINESS TRICKS THAT WILL IMPROVE YOUR PERSONAL LIFE When you’re constantly in the “zone” at work, you’re not always thinking about what’s best for your personal life. While many business owners prioritize balance, what will truly benefit both your home and work life? Check out these three tricks. 1: START YOUR DAY WITH A PLAN. We know what you’re thinking: Writing out your plan is more work than just doing it. The key is to plan whenever you can. If you jot down things you want to accomplish the following day as they come up, all you’ll need to do is spend a few minutes organizing your list the next morning.

Whether your reminder is an alarm at the same time every day or even another habit (“I’ll exercise before I take my morning shower”), make sure it’s part of any new process you implement.

3: REMEMBER, WORK IS FLEXIBLE — YOUR PERSONAL LIFE ISN’T. Bryan G. Dyson, CEO of The Coca-Cola Company, once told his staff, “Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them — work, family, health, friends, and spirit — and you are keeping all of these in the air.” In his metaphor, work is a rubber ball. “If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same.”

Pro Tip: Remember to include time to unwind and relax!

2: DEVELOP NEW AND IMPROVED PROCESSES. While certain activities can’t be replaced with shortcuts (like spending time with family), consider ways to make your current processes more efficient and beneficial. For example, you can’t lose weight if you don’t change your diet and exercise. Adjusting your habits might seem difficult, but there’s actually a straightforward method. According to “Atomic Habits” by James Clear, every new habit has a simple formula behind it: motivation, ability, and prompt.

We hope these tips help you protect the “glass balls” in your life!

First-Time DUI Offender in Atlanta?

But there are other possible consequences, such as 40 hours of community service at a nonprofit organization (this is a mandatory consequence), completion of a DUI Alcohol or Drug Use Risk Reduction course, and 12 months of probation. If the accused is younger than 21 years old, the consequences are slightly different, and they exclude spending time in jail. Another important thing that should be mentioned here is the fact that most courts will add additional conditions to your sentence. For example, you could be required to attend a Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Victim Impact Panel or some of many Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. The important thing is to show up at the hearing. If you avoid the hearing, there is a chance the court will suspend your driver’s license for 12 months. Keep in mind that, in

Georgia, two types of DUI consequences also lead to two different court hearings, including an administrative license hearing or a criminal proceeding. The criminal proceeding can bring even stricter consequences, such as time in jail, community service, additional license suspension, forced alcohol or drug treatment, and different financial fines. For all the people who experience the arrest in this area for the first time, the best advice is to get an experienced Georgia DUI lawyer who can solve the situation in just 30 days. The lawyer may cost you more than $150, but the right lawyer will save your driver’s license. Keep in mind that these consequences are for the first-time DUI. The penalties for the second conviction are much, much stricter. Stay safe out there!
