You wanted a business productivity magic bean, and here it is! It's free and the more you do it, the easier it becomes. We're talking about eliminating! In this episode of The Decorettes we're chatting about several things you can eliminate in your business and your life so you can free up time to do what matters most!
Problem: Everyone wants more time. But the hard truth is you can’t make or find more time, unless you are a Time Lord (Doctor Who fans- hey!!!!). But what if I told you that there was one MAGICAL word that would create more time for you! The MAGIC BEAN of productivity! Now imagine that this magical marvel if absolutely, 100%, free! Want to know what it is? It’s called saying NO!!!!!! You need to eliminate things from your schedule. And we’ve got three ways to make that happen.
Eliminate some personal time
This one is hard. So hard. And we’re not talking about self care. We shouldn’t eliminate taking care of our physical and mental health for the sake of our businesses.
But what can we eliminate:
Netflix binging (upon binging upon binging)
Time with friends- this sucks! But we can’t live the party life and grow a business- especially in the beginning
Excessive travel- same as time with friends. It sucks.
I know this part sucks, but if you aren’t willing to give up some personal time to grow your business, it’s a hobby, and you just need to be okay with that. And it’s totally okay if it is a hobby. Go in with the expectation that this will grow very slowly, or not at all, and that you’re just doing it for fun.
Balance is key here…..you can too far to the extreme and then you’ll be a burned out mess. The word of the day for this discernment. Get clear on what things really feed you emotionally, physically and mentally. Say yes to the quality version of those and no to the rest.
Eliminate the wrong projects
Eliminate time on social media or posting to certain social channels
