Tired of spending hours on your biz while your little ones nap, with little to show for it besides all the stress? I was right there with you a year ago!
This is the first step for a good reason. It can be the easiest thing to distract us because we think it’s actually helping! Phones, along with social media, are super addicting and we have a funny way of thinking that we are actually doing something purposeful for our biz, when we are really just aimlessly scrolling.
When you sit down to get to work, either put your phone face down or better yet somewhere completely away from you. Make sure it’s on silent or airplane mode while you’re at it. All of those demanding notifications can wait. You’ve got an online empire to build! 🙌
Ya know all those bomb ideas you have been bouncing around? Actually get them out and on to paper. Add details as they come, but don’t stress about actively getting anything done just yet. Let these new ideas form as you work toward your current goals, but don’t let them distract you.
Have a set time each week to review your Brain Dump pages. Flesh out any ideas you have had and see if there is anything you’re ready to take on. Just as important, notic what tasks need to wait or just aren’t a good fit for your biz in general.
There is nothing worse than sitting down and seeing where your brain will take you. You will either find yourself aimlessly scrolling through social media, or worse, you will work on a task that is super low priority.
Set your goals in advance. Keep them simple and direct. Try just 2 goals a day, and really crush’em. Create goals that will launch your biz forward!
A cluttered desk = a cluttered mind.
This goes hand-in-hand with knowing your goals. Take everything else off of your desk and out of sight. It is so easy to see something sitting there and think “oh, I will just take care of this now” and get sucked into a super low priority task.
Keep everything else out of sight and out of mind. Clearing your work space will give your brain room to think.
As mamapreneurs with limited time, every minute of time is incredibly valuable. Don’t waste your time when you know you will be distracted.
For me this means not working while my daughter is awake. I would try to work and my little girl would want to play of course, which created so much extra stress that held me back. Very early on it became clear that these two things were incompatible. So what happened?
Now I get much more work done during the 4 hours I work each day while my daughter sleeps than I ever did when I tried to work all day.
Find limited time blocks with a clear start and end time. Make sure they are distraction free. Know exactly what your goals for that time are.
