This week has been busy, but productive.. I hope you are all ending the week feeling productive as well. I spent my time under an umbrella of CONFIRMATION and it was golden. Have you ever had one of those weeks where the stars align and though you don’t see the conversions YET, you know they are on their way because you’ve had nothing but signs and arrows pointing to them.
I have recently been on a quest to take back the control of my calendar, my product development, and my focus. I have to thank Jordan Paige and Amy Landino for their eye opening (the truth is.. they just said it in a way that I actually heard it) content. Jordan helped me with the block scheduling and meal planning, Amy helped me with the getting up and having a great morning routine that includes the BRAIN DUMP/Journaling.
Now.. let me tell you about how the confirmation came about…
I knew something had to give with my schedule because I’ve been telling people I feel like a DUCK! Cool and calm on the surface but paddling like a crazy person under water. Jordan actually said those exact words in her block scheduling video. That’s what made me stop and watch. If you have been struggling with your schedule, doing too much for others and on their time… GET CONTROL OF YOUR CALENDAR…BOO!
I recognized meal planning for my family was imperative if I was going to get my calendar under control and it just so happened, Jordan had a plan for that as well AND it saves you money. When you’re in tune with yourself and what you need to create circumstances of optimal success, you know when enough is enough. THAT’S WHEN YOU DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO GET A DIFFERENT RESULT.
When you can’t find the time to add to your schedule at the END of the day, you have to make more time at the BEGINNING of your day. Amy helped me with the creation of an actual PLAN of action for my morning that resulted in consistency in my morning routine AND accountability partners that keep me getting up Monday – Friday at 5:40 AM. I love it! I get SO MUCH DONE now… What’s most important about this is… I now have time FOR ME!! I get up and have prayer time, devotion time, and journal writing time. I actually created a very special group and every morning at 6 AM, I’m sharing my first thoughts with others and in return, I’m getting encouragement, inspiration, and more. This was confirmation that I needed to get back to putting ME first!
Now.. out of all this, came a new episode of Be the Brand TV about using the value you have and confidently sharing it in a concise way while networking. It’s called, “My 3-2-1 Formula for the Perfect 30 Second Pitch”. As you watch it, ask yourself… “How easy would it be to create the perfect 30 second pitch if I had a great morning routine AND had control of the rest of my day as well?”
