As entrepreneurs, brides-to-be, parents… whatever title you hold, it can be easy to be overwhelmed with a long to-do list. And when I’m working with my clients or talking with entrepreneurs to help them bring more energy and balance back in to their businesses, one of the things that always comes up is that they feel like they just don’t have enough time to do what they *want* to be doing because they have SO much on their to do list.
Can you relate?
If so, I want to help you remedy that today by sharing a tip that you can implement right away!
Step one is to make a list of all the things you don’t enjoy or don’t know how to do that hold you back from focusing on what you do want to be doing. The things to put on this list are the things that weigh on your shoulders when you think about having to do them and so you end up procrastinating and then beat up on yourself for not getting these items done. Things such as your bookkeeping, or scheduling out your social media, or cleaning your house, or researching vendors for an upcoming event.
Okay… got your list?
Great. Now I want you to go through this list and circle your top stressors. What are the top 3 items on this list that you could do, but don’t HAVE to do. Circle those 3 things!
Now, the final step is to think about how you can unload or delegate these 3 items to someone else. Maybe you need to hire a maid. Maybe you need a bookkeeper or a Virtual Assistant. Whatever the support you need, you’ll want to make sure you put these items on your calendar and take action in getting them taken care of!
I know running a business can be overwhelming sometime! And that’s why I think it is so important to keep staying aware of where you really can reclaim balance in your business. If you found today’s exercise helpful, I’d love to hear about it. Leave a comment on my blog below!
PS: I am delighted to have created my very own Facebook group, the Enlightened Entrepreneurs Facebook Community! My intention for this group is that it will be a place for entrepreneurs to come together to support, network and share about business with a community of others who understand what the entrepreneurship journey can be like.
