When you’re a small business owner, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by everything you need to get done during the day. Emails. Auditions. Bookings. Customer service. Marketing. Social Media. Bookwork. The list goes on and on and on.
Where do you start?
How do you prioritize?
What gets checked off?
For years I fell for the myth of multi-tasking. I genuinely believed I could do ten different things at once, achieving maximum productivity and efficiency.
So I was an idiot. What can I say?
Let me be the first to stand boldly and proclaim, multi-tasking is lie and you can’t do ten things at once achieving maximum productivity and efficiency. Oh, and for those of you reading whispering under your breath right now, “yes I can. I’m a mom.” Sorry… no you can’t!
Want To Get More Done? Do This…
People often ask me how I managed to do everything I do. Make videos. Write blogs. Market my services. Find new leads. Send auditions. Book voice overs. Renovate my house. Spend time with family. Make an appearance daily on all the social networks, etc… etc… etc…
Want to know the secret? I focus on one thing at time.
Each day I know what needs to get done.
- I set goals.
- I set priorities.
- I set time blocks.
- I cross off one at a time.
This method has allowed me to accomplish far more than I never did when I was doing ten things at once. Not only do I get more done, but it’s done better as well!
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by everything your business requires, do the same thing for yourself. It works. Trust me!
