So, you want to increase your productivity but you're not sure how to go about doing it. Well, my friend, you've landed in the right spot. I've earned my title of Productivity Guru because I just might know a thing or two about it. It's time to sit back and get ready for a journey down productivity lane...
When I look back to when I first started out in my online business several years ago, I was one hot mess! I thought I had it so under control but just taking one look at my working hours would tell a different story. I easily worked 12 to 14 hours a day, six days a week. I told myself it was because I was building a business.
Really? Who was not being honest with herself at that point?
But that wasn't the whole of it. I neglected pretty much everything else in my life but my business. I stumbled out of bed to my office and then I'd stumble from my office back to bed, most days. Luckily, I have a husband who picked up A LOT of slack around the house and meal chores!
I was out of control. I spent almost every waking hour working! I woke up one morning at 5 AM tired, grumpy, and wondering if I'd made the right choice to be an entrepreneur. I was second-guessing myself, not because I didn't have work but because I had SO MUCH work. I was working about 60+ hours directly with clients. The rest of my time I spent trying to build my business further. Organization, processes, and time management was out the window!
It was on that day that I decided to use my knowledge of managing time -- you know that thing that I taught others how to do -- to my advantage. I had to start running my day and stop my day from running me ragged!
