Hey, Kick Conflict to the Curb Weekly readers!
I sure hope that you are doing well and ready to say goodbye to 2020!
Do you want to hear how I finally got answers on how to gain control of my day and tasks?
I recently attended an online conference with Amy Porterfield who is the Queen of Creating Digital Courses. She invited her friend and thought leader, Michael Hyatt to share his wisdom with us.
His ideas blew me away and I started making changes in my life immediately. The video below describes Hyatt’s Brilliance from his book, Free to Focus.
This short video tells my story and how you can start making changes to gain control of your day also.
Gain Control of Your Day Idea #1: Create 3 Goals Each Day
Michael Hyatt suggests that we think of 3 goals to complete daily. Write down these goals. Once you complete these 3 tasks, you can now spend some quality time doing what you WANT to do.
For example, my 3 goals for today are to record 5 videos for LinkedIn and Facebook, work on Amy Porterfield’s module on creating powerful webinars, and write this blog.
Once I finished these 3 BIG goals, it was time to stop looking for another goal. Instead, I wanted to read a book for an hour. This is huge for me because I never stopped doing all the tasks on my plate and of course, there was never time to read what I wanted to read because there was ALWAYS something else to complete. I was on that treadmill and couldn’t get off. Does this sound familiar to you?
Gain Control of Your Day Idea #2: Hire a Virtual Assistant
I’ve had people help with tasks in the past such as graphic designers, marketers, IT teams, etc. I never thought about giving the tasks that I don’t enjoy doing to a VA who loves this kind of work.
Huge stress has been lifted from me because I have time to spend doing what I want to do. This is not new for most of us. BUT it’s very hard to achieve until we find out that we do have choices.
How can You Gain Control of Your day?
