Here's something I've been very aware of for, really, as long as I can remember.
I've always been great at time management, which in all honesty starting in High School. I was one of those girls who took on too much then I should have growing up. From working to many jobs at once, playing to many sports, organizing to many parties and focus on the hardest classes in school.
I was one of those girls who always worked hard and put WAY to much pressure on myself on getting good grades and ensuring I was always striving for perfection. To the point that my mom would say "Lisa, it's only high school".
I worked my ass off. Always.
However, now looking back a decade, I am very happy that I pushed myself like I did. It allowed me to gain an understanding of what I can accomplish when I put my mind to it, but also pushed me to learn balance and time management from a young age.
Something that I now put into my life every single day.
Not kidding. I am a planner.
Each Sunday I plan out my week from what I need to accomplish for the business, what days I a doing what workouts, what days I am eating certain macros and what days I am going to a social event or gathering.
It works for me and makes sure I am productive.
People always ask me how I am always accomplishing my goals, staying motivated and a quick worker...
It's because I am balanced with my life and get rid of distractions.
Here's an example of my day:
7:00 am- Squats & Conditioning Workout.
9:00 am- Facebook & IG Ads
10:00 am - Breakfast
11:00 am - Check e-mails, begin on client work.
1:00 pm - Lunch
2:00 pm - FREE time for me.
8:00 pm - Yoga
Now of course, depending on what client work needs to be completed will effect my day. Every morning when I wake up, I write my to-do list for client and business work,
I makes sure I put them in priority of what needs to be done first.
When I am doing the work, that's exactly what I am doing. I'm focused on ONE THING, not doing a million things at once.
In my opinion, this is what works for ME. Everyone will have their own ways of getting shit done, but one thing I witness with all my students and even friends is people don't plan.
If you want to loose weight, go to the gym and meal prep....
"But that takes so long. I work to much. I don't have time"
Bullshit. You do have the time, you just aren't being productive.
Wake up an hour earlier and go to the gym. Even if its for 30 minutes, its better then nothing. On Sunday, instead of having a 'lazy Sunday', wake up and get your meal prep done. You can be done it before 9 am. Then you have the entire day to do whatever you want.
If you want to grow your business...
FOCUS ON IT. People expect their business to grow, money to come in, but they aren't focused on it happening.
Some people I talk to say they want this business, they want this success, and they will work on it for a week... then as soon as they see something else they are interested in, they jump on it. Then a month later they wonder why their business never grew.
In all honesty, nothing happens over night.
If you want to learn how to swim, you need to go take swimming lessons and learn and practice and then you'll get it.
Same thing with anything in your life. It won't happen just because you thought about it. Pick one thing you WANT to accomplish and stick with it for at least 90 days before you bring on something else.
