There’s always something standing in the way of what you want to accomplish.
For most of us, it’s an excuse:
“I don’t have enough time!”
“I have too many things on my to do list. I can’t possibly add anything else.”
Does any of this sound familiar?
If so, keep reading.
Why you’re always unbalanced
I’ve spent the past few years examining what it takes to live a balanced life.
Sometimes I feel like I almost get there.
But often, something knocks me back off track and I feel like I have to start all over again.
And while things like getting the right kind of exercise, improving your sleep, eating well, taking time for mindfulness, and surrounding yourself with a supportive community are all equally important to creating balance in your life, there’s one aspect at the root of everything else:
And I don’t mean just making a huge list of all the things you have to do and then randomly assigning them a spot in your schedule (or on your already overloaded to do list).
If you’re like most people, you aren’t sure how to figure out what’s really important.
When you look at trying to cut down your task list, it’s often so overwhelming that you just want to give up.
There’s got to be a better way!
I’ve been a little MIA on the blog this month, but there’s a good reason why.
I’ve been busy behind the scenes working on a fix to this priorities issue.
It’s a short, 2-week email course that will help you if you struggle with FOMO (fear of missing out), entrepreneurial ADD, and general overwhelm. It’s designed to help you set clear priorities and eliminate any busywork that’s holding you back.
Rather than another tired productivity “hack” designed to help you find more time (can you hear my eyes rolling?), it will allow you to focus on the things that really matter — the priorities that will move your world changing work forward.
Set yourself up for success
The course material is being tested by an awesome group of beta testers over the next few weeks, and will be ready for prime time by the beginning of 2017.
Until then, take a good hard look at your to do list and your priorities, and see if they’re working for you.
If not, don’t lose hope. A solution is on the way.
I’ll let you know when it’s ready!
