March has finally arrived, and spring is right around the corner… or at least that’s what the groundhog said! Maybe you’re preparing for the kids who are going to be home for a week and the minute they go back into school from spring break… It’s going to be time for a business spring cleaning! That sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

Finally, they’re back and school and you have so many plans of what you’re going to accomplish. You may even tell some of your closest friends or even your business besties about all these amazing plans. Perhaps you sit down to get work done but then minutes turn to hours and hours turn into days. Before you know it, time has gotten away from you and we’re well into Q2 with little to show for what you accomplished. Why does this even happen? I recorded a video to discuss this very thing.

1. Nature Hates a Vacuum

2. You Don’t Put Your Plan Together on Paper!
Another reason why you aren’t getting those things done is because you probably aren’t putting your plan together on paper. You know the goals you want to achieve in your head… But are you writing them down in a way that motivates & excites you? You know what you must get done because all the administrative duties are piling up on each other… But are you putting a plan in place to prioritize your day? Chances are, if time is getting away from you, you aren’t putting your priorities in order. Like I said in the video, nature will always find a way to fill the gaps in your schedule and without the right plan… You’re planning to fail. There’s a quote from Tony Robbins that states, “Energy flows where your attention goes.” When you aren’t focusing on the things that you want in business, you leave yourself open to distractions. But when you can harness your focus and layout your plan of action… You will start seeing amazing results.

3. How Do You Process Time?
One of the things that most business owners don’t realize is how they process time internally. There are 2 sides to this coin. We have judgers.

These are the people who absolutely love to plan out everything down to the very last second. They are the ones who will work out of a planner, know where they will be at any given day of the year, and they may even have the following year sketched out.

Unfortunately, for perceivers, they tend to run late to a lot of the events because they lose track of time. Or they put so much focus into one thing but don’t realize they’ve spent an hour working on something that should have taken them 5 minutes. Read more...
