Do you feel like you don’t have enough time to get things done in your business?
I get it, life is busy when you’re building your business on the side of a job, dealing with life things (cooking! cleaning! Significant other! friends! and/or raising kids, caring for pets, paying bills etc.)--you don’t need me to tell you, right?
But what I find is that usually it’s NOT about finding more time.
Instead, it’s about creating more clarity and space in your brain for the things that are actually going to move your business forward. For those money-making tasks, which might actually only take 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or 30 minutes per day. (Do you know what those are? If not, that’s where to start.)
If you do know what they are, and you’re having a hard time creating the time to get them done, know that you’re not alone. With all of the screens and ads and business of the world around us, you’re actually in the majority, and people often wear “I’m too busy” as a badge--but it’s actually a badge of self-sabotage.
In this highly distracting world we live in, especially when we’re building businesses online, when we’re used to multitasking and jumping from thing to thing with breathtaking speed, we’re often left feeling tired, overwhelmed, frazzled.
So that when you finally sit down at the computer, you then immediately become so overwhelmed that you start scrolling through Facebook or playing Candy Crush, am I right?
My goal is to help you rise above the fray and create your own success story.
So, how can you create more clarity and space to move your business forward?
#1 Instead of repeating “I don’t have enough time” or “I just wish I had more time, THEN I would get things done,” own that you can change that RIGHT NOW and start telling yourself “I always make enough time for the things that are most important to me.”
Stop making yourself a victim of time and instead take charge of it with this simple phrase. YOU get to choose.
YES--even if you have a long commute to & from work in the dark (been there).
YES, even if you have a lot of demands on your time, work, family, school, etc.
YES, even if you have whatever your particular circumstance that causes you to feel you don’t have enough time.
We’ll be talking simple productivity hacks all this week, but this piece is absolutely FOUNDATIONAL to get first, because otherwise, the rest of it won’t fully help you, because you’ll still have the same script running.
Are you willing to upgrade your story to “I always make enough time for the things that are most important to me?” Or have you used this phrase and found it to be true? Share with us below!
