For the past few months my ‘hustle’ has been off…
I haven’t been motivated.
I left my family to ‘work’ but found myself always scrolling through my Facebook news feed.
It felt terrible.
But the last two weeks I’ve been the most productive I’ve ever been in my life.
1. I Channeled Into WHY.
I reminded myself of the reasons why I’m doing this.
To help others.
To make an impact.
To make my family proud.
When you understand the reasons ‘why’ you’re doing something, you’ll find a new found motivation.
Get to the root cause of why you want something and you’ll always have a strong reminder to keep going.
2. I Hired An Assistant.
This one is more practical based than theory.
One of my biggest weaknesses is staying organised, so I hired an assistant to help me overcome it.
She’s there to keep me organised, take wasteful hours out of my day and keep me on track.
Remember, you can’t always rely on yourself to stay accountable.
3. I’ve ‘Switched Off’
I studied productivity book after productivity book, I tried this hack and that hack…
I spent a good few years trying to optimize the time I spent working.
But one thing that helped sky rocket my productivity was actually not working.
I know, it sounds crazy…
But being able to switch off, step away from the desk and ‘refresh’ is key to unlocking your true productivity.
I’m spending more time with my family.
I’m present when I’m with my boys.
This switch off from work helps me from burning out.
4. I’m Theming My Days.
This might not work for you, but it’s something that’s benefitting me greatly.
Theming your days is all about knowing WHAT you’re doing on each day.
Something like this…
Monday – Pitch/Money making tasks
Tuesday – Creative day (videos, podcast)
Wednesday – A combination
Thursday – Day off, Daddy time.
Friday – Networking day + catch up
Instead of trying to do a range of tasks all in one day, spread them out across your work week.
5. I’m Focusing On Patience.
I’d love 1 million subscribers tomorrow.
I’d love an extra 000’s on my income.
I’d love more freedom and time with family.
But I’m in this for the long game, no quick results.
I want to continue making an impact on others and sharing my story 50 years from now.
There’s no need to set high expectations and rush.
Focus on patience.
If you find yourself scrolling through social media…
Utilise the above.
It’s helping me right now.
