Two Crucial Steps To Close The Year Out Strong!

Happy Labor Day!

Summer is coming to an end.

This has been a whirlwind of a year emotionally. I was listening to a podcast and the speaker referred to year 2020 as the “sacred pause”. Hmmmmmm, did you pause this year?

Covid brought the entire world to a halt. Businesses, schools, employment, social life immediately came to an end. We were forced to slow down, reflect and be intentional. There was time for relationships, time for communication, time for family, time to grow your business, time to workout, time to grow spiritually and more.

I believe everyone experienced some sort of a sacred pause (even if they didn’t want to) because these past months created a lot of time and opportunity for reflection and soul searching.

What changed for you as a result of the pause?

Now what’s next? How can we bounce back and still remain productive this year?

As we close out this quarter and begin to close out 2020 there are “2” very important things that you should focus on end the year strong:

  1. Practice gratitude daily- think about how fast the world shut down in a blink of an eye. Think about where you are now and practice gratitude. In every obstacle or situation something always comes out of it. What is it for you? Be grateful! Speak it! Write it! Share it!
  2. Stop 🛑 procrastinating! – we lost a legendary actor “T-Challa”, “ Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman amongst many others lives this year. Chadwick silently battled cancer for 4 years since the Black Panther movie and continued to make movies, appearances etc. What is holding you back? What would you do if you knew you only had the next 4 years to live. What would you fight to accomplish? What relationships would you mend? What would you launch?

Practicing gratitude and constantly staying in action will not only help you to focus on what matters but will ensure you stay productive and no longer just “busy”.

Make it a safe yet fun Labor Day!

Does Work Life Balance Really Exist??

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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
