Happy Monday loves!! It is another start of the week, which means we have a new week to get things done!! I’m someone who can get distracted easily which isn’t great when it comes to work. See not everything related to my business is always the most exciting thing to do which leads me to go on my phone. I’ll scroll through social media and take up way too much time doing something that gives me no benefit at all. It’s the worst and such a waste of time. For your girl to get it together, I will do a few things to help myself stay on track.
First off, I make sure I do the IVY Lee Method. I wrote a post about already that you can read it by clicking here. How it works is you list all of the things you need to get done and you put it in order of importance. Having this list keeps me focus and it’s a great way to make sure I remember what I to do next. Also, it feels great when you check something off the list. This is such a must for me because it works so well.
Music, it’s a big thing for me but, it needs to be specific. My all-time favorite type of music to listen to when I’m working is French music, like the kind you hear in French restaurants. Other than the fact that it makes me feel like I’m back in Paris, I can focus so much better when I’m listening to this relaxing kind of music compared to any other kind. There is this playlist on Spotify called French Restaurant and it’s the perfect vibe I’m going for. I put it loud enough where I can’t hear anything around me, which is pretty helpful to avoid getting distracted.
Finally, I love to do this thing called time batching. So when I want to get something done, I’ll set a certain amount of time assigned for one task. Usually I’ll set a timer for 30 minutes to 3 hours. The amount of time depends on what I’m doing. The thing is that during that time I do not allow myself to do anything else. I stay focused on the thing I’m doing and I usually finish whatever I’m working on before the time ends or end up doing more than I planned. I just start to get really into what ever I may be doing that I get things done quicker. This is such a perfect method for when it comes to writing multiple blog posts or getting some accounting work done for my logistic company.
Those three things are my trifecta for getting things done. I feel like setting some type of structure in preparation for your work makes everything more efficient. Being able to get organized saves you time, something that’s so valuable. Everything I mentioned is so simple but trust me guys it works.
All the love,
