It’s a new world and a new day. We are inundated with more distractions and more to do. This is nothing new to you but it must be said. You must learn to take back your time.
People are searching for answers! You’re searching for answers, or you wouldn’t be here. (And I’m so happy you are!) You search online, get on the phone to ask your friends, heck, you even buy self-help books to read. This all takes a lot of time away from doing daily tasks that make for a more organized life. Add to that, you get drawn into the biggest time-suck of all, social media.
The Internet, computers, social media, and cell phones we can put in our pockets were supposed to make our lives easier. In some ways they do, but in many ways, they have only made life harder.
One or all of these:
You’re being asked to do more than you can possibly do.
You’re getting sucked into checking our phones or computers all day and night.
AND… it’s causing you not to get things done such as cleaning, organizing, or even grocery shopping.
How many times have you opened up the refrigerator or cabinets to find that you don’t have enough food items to make a complete or healthy meal? All of these issues are causing chaos. I know because I regularly hear about it from clients and friends.
You need to take back your time…
It’s simpler than you think. When you pull out a daily or weekly planner page and use blocks of time to group and plan tasks, without getting online, you’re more likely to accomplish them. If you use an electronic calendar such as Google, Outlook, or iCal, turn off notifications while you schedule blocks of time to work on things that matter most and must be done.
Plan more offline time. Block and schedule a limited amount of time online.
It sounds easy, but I know for some it is not.
Here’s the point: You don’t have to accept chaos. You CAN have the productive life you’ve been striving for.
The Ultimate Productivity Bundle is here to make it easier for you.
With 73 eBooks, eCourses, printables, videos, workbooks, and more, you’ll be able to find a ton of resources that will give you strategies to conquer your to-do list, reach your goals, and free up more time for activities that make you feel like YOU.
If you feel like you need even a small amount of improvement in the way you’re managing your time and goals, I urge you to read over everything included in the bundle. (And at a 97% discount, it’s super affordable for anyone!)
This may sound like hypocrisy, because not only is The Ultimate Productivity Bundle an online sale, I run an online business, online bible study, my clients search for homes online, and they often sign documents online. But, it’s not hypocrisy. It’s a matter of taking control of your time.
Get online. Get what you need. Get offline. Think about it. If you didn’t have electronics buzzing around you all day long, you would have more time to get things done. I remember a time such as this.
Start with one or two products you are interested in and let go of the rest…for now.
Here’s what you need to do:
Get offline and just do it!
Get fed up enough to take control of what you do with your time.
