How many things are on your to-do list right now? Or should I say how many pages of to-do's do you have?
this has always been one of my biggest challenges as a business owner. at any one moment there are hundreds of things I could/should be doing for my business, how do i choose what is the most important thing?
here's something that has helped me stay out of overwhelm and moving in the right direction every single day.
each morning before I open my computer, I close my eyes and take 3 really deep breaths. it's helpful for me to connect to my 'greatness' when i do that, visualizing a moment when I felt really 'on'. As I continue to stay connected to my breath and see this powerful business owner inside of me and all that she has to offer the world, I ask "What one thing can I do today that will have the greatest impact on my business"
and then I just listen, just notice what pops into my mind. i try not to judge it, by saying "oh that's stupid." or "that will never work", I just notice the idea or image that pops in. I ask the question a couple of different ways, "what action could i take today, that would have the greatest impact on my business (or my life)" and I breathe and listen and notice.
then i open my eyes, jot down anything that came to me. and I do that one thing. i may also get many other things done, but I know as long as i do that one thing today, I have followed my inner wisdom. and usually that's when the magic happens.
what are some of the things that help you when your 'to-do' list seems endless?
