Episode 18: 3 Tips to Optimize and Life Workflow to Work Less and Make More Money
Does it ever feel like no matter what you do, you’re running behind? I’ve been there, done that, and unfortunately, go back there every so often. There are things we can do, though, to work less, stress less, and make more money. I have three tips (plus a bonus!) to improve your mindset and the day-to-day of running your business.
You have to start off by focusing on what the most important thing is for business and in life. Is it getting your kid off the bus? Making sure there is time to hit the gym in the morning? We have to make sure we protect the space around your most important thing. Then you can put these tips into place:
- Identify where you are showing up as the hair-up-in-a-bun, comfy-clothes version of yourself vs. the dolled-up, makeup-done version of yourself. Setting up days where you have no calls frees you up to completely focus on tasks that do not involve being “on.”
- Always end your workday with close out prep time. Ending your last call and heading straight into your regular life activities will not set you up for success for the next day. Having a plan ready for the next day is a complete game-changer!
- Integrate your project management tool and your Google calendar.
Bonus Tip: Save space for communication. If you don’t do this, you will become frustrated when you are interrupted during your work time.
Listen for the details on how to implement these practices and guard your most precious asset–your time!
