Why keeping track of everything keeps you stuck

Last week I shared that my long-trusted self-created format in OneNote was no longer working for me because I felt behind and a bit overwhelmed, which meant something needed to change. I needed a new way to track all my tasks and projects. 

Here’s the thing, organizing projects and tasks is one of my strengths.

However, from my years of coaching around productivity, I know that it’s not a strength for everyone. And that’s okay!

Is it a skill you can learn? Yes.

For example, with training and dedication, I could run a marathon. However, I have absolutely no desire to do that. AT. ALL. So, it makes no sense for me to do that.

Some entrepreneurs have no desire to be in charge of their business’s task/project management. And that’s okay. It might make sense for you to do something other than that.

Trying to keep track of everything keeps you stuck. Instead of serving your clients and dreaming/creating the big vision for your business, you might get bogged down with figuring out the next steps or keeping track of everything.

And trying to stay on top of all your tasks and projects can pull you away or even prevent you from doing the work you’re meant to do, like being the CEO of your business.

While you can learn the skills needed, you don’t have to! You can hire someone else to help you map out the steps and even let you know what needs to be done that day or week, so you’re not looking at ALL THE THINGS and becoming your version of behind, chaotic, and overwhelmed.

If you want some help with that, let me know! Because while it might feel terrible and tedious to you, it’s what I LOVE doing.
