Sarah asked me, “How do I manage my time to write a book when I’m juggling paid work?”
Joe and I drop a truth bomb on her noggin – then give her a simple strategy to help her fit all the things she wants and needs to do into the time she has.
In this short video, I cover:
- The curse of Parkinson’s Law – and how to prevent it from destroying your day
- Your first responsibility as a business owner, whether you’re writing a book or not (most business owners I’ve worked with struggle with everything because they neglect this responsibility)
- Why getting more done doesn’t mean getting up at 4 am and being miserable (my method has you starting with your fun stuff)
- How I divide up my time to get done all the work I want to do – and still have time to train at the trapeze studio five days a week and renovate a cottage
- What to do first (no shiny objects required – just a pen and a notebook)
One thing I didn’t cover in the video, though, I want to throw out here.
The people I see stuck in a rut and struggling to progress are those who confuse consuming with doing.
Stop buying training courses and books and events and bright shiny objects! You have all the information you need. You’re using those things as an excuse to not DO.
Sort out your schedule, then do the things you need to do or nothing will ever change for you.
