The Email Block

Diving right into email and work tasks first thing in the morning is not the ideal way to start your day. Get some insight into what is more conducive to your daily experience of flow, fulfillment and productivity.

Self-management, time-management and productivity are among the most relevant matters to consider when it comes to entrepreneurship and professionalism.

One way some of us get going on such endeavors in the mornings is by jumping right into business related tasks, sometimes before we even get out of bed!

If you are someone who picks up your phone to check your email as soon as your eyes pop open in the morning, I would like to invite you to consider taking a different approach.

I would venture a guess that if you sat down to make a list of what is most important to you, the state of your email inbox would not be near the top of the list!

And if you’re like most of us, your to-do list is a never-ending one.

That being the case, you have to MAKE time for the things that matter most to you.

One of the most ideal times to engage in activities that relate to your deeper self, your life purpose, and things that bring you true joy is first thing in the morning.


Because if you don’t, it’s too easy to let them fall by the wayside as your business day unfolds, presenting you with new tasks and challenges that have to be added to the list.

Also, it sets you on the path for a successful day by getting your heart and mind in a positive state from the get-go.

When you start your day with things you actually look forward to doing, things that get your creative juices flowing and give you a sense of wellbeing, you carry that feeling throughout your day.

This has the potential to add a spring to your step so you can accomplish less exciting list items with more grace and style.

Effective and prudent self-management/time-management that takes our needs and desires into account affords us the energy we need to be more productive for the everyday tasks that may not be that exciting to us.

So make a commitment to yourself and try doing something FUN and enriching in the morning, before you dive into the things that HAVE to be done, like checking email.

See how much more you will accomplish, and how much more fulfilled you will be.
