Download PDF Shown Above

Do you wish you had more time in your day to do the things you love to do? Do you feel overwhelmed with all that needs to be done? Do you want to have more productive days? If so, this episode is for you. I will provide a 7 step process that if you use, you should find yourself feeling less overwhelmed and more productive.  

 I have to be honest and tell you that I catch myself being overworked and having too much to do, and feeling like I don’t have enough time in the day to do everything I need to do, and also have more me time or family time. So I totally get what it is like to be feeling overwhelmed with having too much to do.  

My busy struggles are work related. I catch myself working long hours, and feeling overwhelmed with all that needs to be done. Right now, I am busy booking organizing sessions, scheduling staff, going to clients’ homes for consultations or organizing sessions, doing social media, doing admin work, answering the phone and emails, working on presentations (I have 4 coming up, 1. At a high school, and the Ontario Real Estate Board, and At the Home and Garden Show, plus one For retired school teachers) all in the next month or so) Plus I also have to get organized for trade shows which reminds me that I have the Ottawa Parenting Times Child Expo coming up, oh and I can’t forget t.v appearances, plus so much more that I need to be doing.   

So what do I do when I feel overworked and overwhelmed? I sit down and make an action plan, and this plan can work for you as well. I call it the Productivity Action Plan. It is a 7 step process.  

In the 7 Step process we talk about the importance of brain dumping and scheduling, what to do with a post it note, plus more.  

In this episode I also provide you will ideas on what you can do if your days are booked solid, so you have more time to do what you love to do.  

Plus there is a Productivity Action Plan document that you can print off and fill in, which will help you achieve your goals.
