Allow me to offer you a little encouragement.
Encouragement if you’re feeling like there’s way too much to do, and not enough time to do it.
If you’re feeling like you don’t know the right next step on any of the projects you’re working on, and your day is consumed by email and busy work.
If you’re feeling this way, you’re not alone.
Actually, it seems a lot of people I’ve been speaking to recently feel this exact same way.
So, what do you do when you’re busy all the time and you’re not as productive as you’d like?
One of my clients offered me a perspective I hadn’t thought about before. I want to share it with you in this video with the intention that it gives you a new way of looking at how you get your important work done.
Like many entrepreneurs, you may often overextend yourself and take on way more than you know you can accomplish.
But for some reason you say Yes to more work and responsibility, thinking that somehow you can actually get it all done.
In reality, that’s never the case. When that happens, you come to the end of your day and you haven’t achieved your priorities. You’re left wondering … what did I actually accomplish today?
The perspective my client shared with me opens up space and gives freedom when you’re feeling frazzled.
The perspective is this … give yourself permission.
Permission to ask for help. To understand your focus is best spent things that move you towards your goals.
Permission to accept the help you must have in order to get tasks off your plate. Your first instinct may be to immediately say, “That’s okay, I can do it.” When really, you know deep down if you gave yourself permission to accept the help with gratitude, you’d have a better outcome.
Permission to say No. To set boundaries around your time and your energy. To politely say No to people who want things urgently due to procrastination on their part, and now they expect it to become your urgent matter.
Giving yourself permission is powerful.
It allows you to control your schedule, your time and your energy.
It puts you on top of your workload.
And most importantly, it enables you to accomplish your goals with ease and grace.
