Wednesday LIVE with Evie #84 : Just start

Just start

I took a break from blogs and doing lives due to family priorities and I’ve found it difficult to get back into the flow/habit/rhythm I had created for this prior.

There isn’t any magic pill or inspiration that hit to get back into that flow/habit/rhythm.

The only way to get started is to just start and trust that in that process it will get easier and the flow/habit/rhythm will return.

As I was thinking about this, I realized that a common piece of advice I hear shared would NOT work for me—I’d rarely start anything using this advice.

The advice is to have a few pieces already prepared before you start. 

This looks like having a month of blog posts written before you publish your first blog, have several podcasts recorded before you share your first podcast, or any number of things like that.

This can easily lead to perfectionism, things taking longer than they need to, and it can prevent you from being able to quickly pivot when something doesn’t go quite the way you expected.

I explore this topic in the video below.

Turning that project on your to-do list into a doable task

I’ve been thinking a lot about to-do lists lately. 

What makes them work and what causes them to be abandoned or ignored? One reason they get ignored is when there’s a big project that needs to be done, but it hasn’t been broken down into smaller steps.  But breaking those projects down into smaller steps is a task in itself. I talk about that below.

How a not-to-do list can keep you sane

You’re going through your day and checking your email. You notice that someone’s offering a webinar or presentation on the HOT social media platform right now.

“Interesting,” you think to yourself as you skim the email about why you should be on that platform and then delete it.

Later you’re scrolling through Facebook and see other people talking about this same HOT social media platform. And one of them is offering a free challenge that will teach you the ins and outs!

You quickly sign up and create an account.

BUT, you’re just not sure where you’re going to find the time.

You’re overwhelmed and this is the third new thing you’ve added to your to-do list today.

You try to breathe through it and remind yourself that you need to stay up to date on these things so you can reach as many people as possible, but you’re so stressed out and working so much you’re starting to wonder if it’s worth it.

I talk about one list you can keep that can help with this situation in the video below.

How to find your new groove after the summer break

Summer’s over.

I’ve seen for myself the biggest sign of this: school buses have returned to their task of taking kids to and from school.

So, of course, that means summer break is over.

Has summer break ended for your business?

In the video below I share some things to include and consider when finding your new groove after the summer break.
