Do you try to squeeze too much into your workday and then feel disappointed that you didn’t get it all done? If so, here’s a refreshing perspective on how to decide what’s most important.
Most entrepreneurs are success planners who are seeking time freedom in their lives.
What they may or may not know when they start out as entrepreneurs is that time freedom requires effective self-management. And that means knowing how to prioritize your tasks.
It’s natural to want to get it all done when you know you have a lot to do. But one of the most valuable lessons we can learn as entrepreneurs is that it’s impossible to get it all done at once.
There will ALWAYS be more to do, and things rarely move along as quickly as we want them to.
When you have a firm understanding of this truth, it helps give you permission to take breaks. It’s okay (in fact, it’s wise) to schedule time in your workday for rest, recalibration, and fun.
This is a much more sane way to operate than putting off time for fun and relaxation until after all the work is done.
The best way to schedule your day is to plan for just a few key tasks that impact your business the most.
Just a few is key, as is making sure they are tasks that move your business in the right direction. It’s the way to get the most bang for your buck so to speak.
So, what do you need to let go of in order to keep your business moving forward at a nice pace while also having time to relax and have fun?
What things are most impactful for your business?
These are the tasks you want to put at the top of your priority list.
Let the rest go and give yourself permission to get things done at a reasonable pace that doesn’t lead you down the road to burnout and frustration.
Chances are, by prioritizing in this way, you will find yourself in a completely different place in a year’s time.
This will be good for your business, your income, your life and your relationships.
