Thing Three: Use tools to help you Out
(google calendar for your planning and scheduling, google apps for work for organization, and I'm planning to look into asana again to step my game up)
My schedule is color coded inside google calendar, so every week I update it, I sync my scheduling apps with it and so at a glance I know exactly how my week is set up.
Thing Four: Set alarms and actually stick to them
My phone alarms like 25 times per day, seriously. I have reminders set to let me know it's time for lunch (yes I need to be reminded), it's time to get ready to start my business day, I have an alarm when it's time for bed (on iPhone I am loving the "bedtime option" - a girl needs her sleep!), I have pop up reminders throughout the day just to make sure I stay on task and get the most out of my day.
Thing Five: Schedule time for lunch, rest and recharging
Working with clients takes a lot of energy, you want to give your best. I spend 1 -2 hours BEFORE I pick my daughter up resting so I can spend my time fully focussed on her when it's our time and not counting down until bedtime.
It's also important because I need enough energy to spend on client projects, and any other loose ends throughout the day.
If you aren't getting your meals in and getting enough rest then you won't be present enough to enjoy the freedom you're working towards, the people you're working so hard for and you won't be able to produce your best work and content (reducing the impact you make in your business)
Thing Six: Get Real with yourself.
What does your inconsistency cost you? A client? Being fully booked? Put a $ sign on it. It's time for a reality check.
When I realised that not being consistent was actually costing me money in my business, when I got real with myself and saw that if I was super consistent in my business I could 10x my income and FAST - Consistency became a big priority.
BIG PICTURE darling, big picture.
Thing Seven: mind over everything
It's all in your mind, you need to everyday just make the decision that you're going to stay consistent. Recreate yourself as a disciplined business and decide to boss up and up level the way you are in your business.
Once you conquer your mind and the way you see yourself - building the habits will be a cinch.
This is where acting as if and implementing a solid daily practice that restructures the very way you think comes into play.
