How To Stay Productive When You Feel Like You Can’t Do It All? ….Part 3

So last week we spoke about Prioritizing your tasks and the week before we stated that Balance doesn’t exist.

Lastly, this week we will discuss It’s OK to say NO!

You can not manage your tasks effectively if you have more ASAP tasks than time in a day. It’s not cute to be busy and broke. Your goal is to be productive. Saying NO will Free you from over committing yourself and It will also release you from any additional menial tasks.

Accept the fact that you may disappoint someone because you are saying NO and prioritizing your tasks and time. You can’t please everyone, or do everything and you should not try to. Again your goal is to be productive and not overwhelmed and therefore some tasks will also be missed. It’s ok!!!

For the record, you will drop the ball like I did with forgetting to feed my 7 y/o dinner but guess what…its alright and she is still alive. Lol Don’t be too hard on yourself. Once you accept that there is no such thing as balance, prioritize and manage your tasks and understand that some things will not get done you’re on the road to success.

Until Next time

How To Stay Productive When You Feel Like You Can’t Do It All? ….Part 2

So last week we discussed Balance and that it doesn’t exist. This week we will discuss the second step which is to Manage Your Tasks.

You have so many priorities but you can’t do it all and do it successfully. You must, must, must, manage your tasks and not have them manage you. I found that using the strategy below helps me to be more productive.

Prioritize your priorities in 3 categories :

1. Must complete ASAP. These are the things that absolutely must get done and have immediate deadlines.

2. Must complete this week. This is truly the beginning of managing your tasks. If it doesn’t have an immediate deadline but must be addressed then prioritize those tasks then schedule it on your calendar to complete that week in order of priority.

3. Not Now but near future. These tasks need to be done but are not pressing nor have a deadline. Keep it in your to do list to revisit as time permits.

My kids know if they want something they can’t ask once…they have to remind me because if it’s not a priority at the time it may get lost in all the other Not Now’s in my mind so I make a to do list to go back to.

This strategy helps to set my intentions for the day and week and helps to ensure I am successfully completing what’s important. Stay tuned for Part III next week…

Until Then

How To Stay Productive When You Feel Like You Can’t Do It All? Part 1

So Number 1……the word BALANCE is severely overrated. There are so many articles and trainings out about balance but I’m here to disappoint you and tell you that it doesn’t exist.

Yeah i said it……there is no such thing as BALANCE. Get it out of your mind, it’s ok, it doesn’t exist. Stop trying to achieve the unachievable instead manage your tasks, in which we will touch upon later.

I for one as a nurse leader, with a successful home based business, kids in sports and dance, a Hubby with needs, plus serving in ministry and a job-profit Board didn’t even have a chance to comb my daughters hair some Sunday nights.

I can never forget one evening I came home and started working on my business and personal stuff. My husband attended his church ministry and came home after 9p and my daughter came downstairs to greet him and asked “mom what’s for dinner?”. He looked at me, I looked at him and he said “ Ahhhh so you didn’t feed my daughter”……..OOPS! We laughed it off and he graciously made her a sandwich.

I tried for so many years trying to figure out how some of these successful women manage a family, spouse, business, fashion, fitness, ministry and not miss a beat. They make it look so easy but often don’t show the chaos behind the scenes like the ones in my home……organized chaos. Lol

Stay tuned for Part II next week…

Until Then

Get Ready For Your Next!

I heard something great this week that just made me shift my focus. Often times we go through situations where we feel like we are not making any progress. You look at your current situation and feel like you’re in the same place, and stuck. You feel like you even have taken a few steps back. You’re looking around you and seeing successful people doing great things and wondering when will it me my turn. Your experiencing all the ups and downs in your business and career and fell as if you are moving backwards.

Let me encourage you today……think of your journey like a slingshot! Those steps you are taking backwards and the discouragement is the stretching and pulling that God is doing. He is pulling and pulling and stretching and pulling and guess what’s next?

He is getting ready to release. What happens when you pull a slingshot all the way back and release……..you propel forward with FORCE!

Imagine…..God is stretching you to propel you forward. This is the only way for you to accomplish what he has set in your heart to accomplish. That release will propel you to your next level because of how far back he had to pull and stretch you.

Just know that you are propelling forcefully into your next season, allow yourself to be stretched so that God can move you. Just be patient!

Until Next Time
