Welcome to September ‼️
As we end of this quarter and start to embrace the holidays, New Year, family and career obligations, business and goal setting, the question that constantly comes up is “Does Work Life balance truly exist ❓❓”
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. The truth is how much of it are you spending doing what fulfills you.
When you are running 🏃🏽♀️ around chasing priorities you:
1. Don’t get much accomplished ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Feel more overwhelmed and frustrated
3. Beat up on yourself for not getting things done.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The one thing you should understand is that everything your juggling is important. The problem is, when you juggle too many things what ultimately happens is that you start to drop a ball or two as you keep adding more priorities.
The goal is to stop juggling and start managing your tasks.
No more will your tasks manage you!!
Here are 2 simple steps to managing tasks and achieving a sense of fulfillment.
1. Set priorities and rank them in order of importance.
2. Identify what needs to be done immediately, within the next 7 days and what can wait a bit.⠀⠀
3. Use a calendar to schedule and map out your priorities that need to be accomplished that week and month. Make sure that the times you set are are non-negotiable.⠀⠀
4. Highlight, check-off and celebrate each small win you accomplish. These small wins ultimately leads to big goals and you will feel a sense of accomplishment. ⠀⠀⠀
These steps can help to ensure that you focus on completing the most pertinent tasks, as opposed to placing your time and attention on tasks that can wait.
Prioritize your task list this week and see how much you will get accomplished!
Until Next Time
|Behind every successful woman is a sister friend or circle that support and pushes her to be her best. Oprah has Gail, Kelly Rowland & Beyonce, La La & Kim Kardashian to name few. Either way they all have their sister circle.|
As an introvert I love keeping to myself so sisterhood is foreign to me. I keep a handful of people close to me.
I would prefer to sit in a corner listening to my favorite book or just sit quietly at a function observing before networking or jumping into anything. I love keeping to myself. Let me know if i am by myself with this one.Don’t get me wrong, I love to have fun and party but when I’m in a comfortable setting.
I am starting to believe that this whole introvert thing is a means to accept the term and remain comfortable? This i will address another day but overtime I learned that this is not the way to grow and succeed.
When women come together to support and empower other women, something magical happens. You need quality relationships, accountability and people that will keep you in check. You need that sisterhood that will force you out of the corner and out of your comfort zone. Those sisters that will ask you “Why haven’t you started that thing yet?” Sisters that listen to you, accept you as you are, see you as who you are becoming, don’t hold you back or get jealous of you, support you in your mission, and celebrate you. Your sisterhood should empower you.
Heck Women Understand Women!
Oftentimes with entrepreneurship, it can get a bit lonely especially when former friends are not on the same journey as you. It is always great to have like minds and folks of different experiences able to pour into you and guide you available to you.
So all my introverted ladies that’s stepping outside their comfort zones to network, build relationships, businesses, tribes and pour into others reach out and send a text to your tribe letting them know how much you appreciate them.
For those that are searching for a tribe there are 2 things you can do:
1. Search Facebook Groups with similar interests and join them. Comment, make connections, friend requests and contribute to the group.
2. Create a tribe of your own. I am certain that there are many women out there looking for a tribe, start your own.
If we truly expect to rise to the levels of success we want, we must come together.
UNTIL NEXT TIME
It’s time for you to define and design, not just your success, but your UNSHAKABLE success and this book will set you on the right path.
