Routine, Routine, Routine...
Happy Wednesday everyone!
I can't believe we are halfway through June! I hope you have been enjoying your summer with friends, family and kiddos!
Today, I want to talk about routine. Specifically business routine. I have mentioned before how tough it is to stay on track with all the things there are to juggle. But, I have started to put a few things in place that help this ride go a little smoother.
Here are my 3 tips for making a business routine stick:
1) Make a plan. Start small. Daily plans, weekly plans, monthly plans, and yearly plans. Not just goals (those are important too) but plans. I usually sit down Sunday night and map out my week on my calendar. My workouts, meals, work schedule, and any extracurricular events happening. Once a month I sit down and plan out all of my social media and blogs for the following month. At the end of the year I usually sit down and list goals and plans for the new year to come. By doing this the load seems a little lighter.
2) Get up early or stay up late. These are both hard but getting up early is much easier for me. By doing this I can knock some things out before anyone is even awake in my house. Uninterrupted time is the best working time.
3) Give yourself some grace. We do not have to be perfect 24/7. Life gets busy, kids get sick, we go on vacation, we get sick, plans get messed up and that's ok! Just pick back up where you left off and keep on keepin' on!
Hope this tips help you stay encouraged in the everyday!
