Do You Need Juggling Lessons?

Take a look at a social media post by any entrepreneur and you’ll find frequent references to stress, exhaustion, confusion. The cause? Juggling!! No, not balls or bowling pins – but tasks and time and family and business and needs and… and…

Spinning Your Wheels? Try This!

Have you ever reached the end of your day and wondered what you accomplished?  Maybe you crossed 10 items off your to-do list, but still felt as if you hadn’t moved forward toward achieving any of your goals.  Or, maybe you didn’t cross anything off your list, and can’t even remember what activities you spent your time on all day, you just know you […]

Time Management Tool – Cool Timer

Procrastination!

Distractions!

Ahh . . . no matter how great you are at practicing time management strategies, sometimes even the most strategic individual falls into the deep, dark hole of procrastination.

Or, possibly you are overcome with the distraction of flying “shiny objects”!

Is This Why You Aren’t Succeeding With Accomplishing Your Priorities?

When do you feel you are most efficient?  How do you balance scheduled and unscheduled activities each day, week, month?  Do you work with a regimented 15 minute scheduled calendar, or do you have a weekly task list, or something in between?  What is your master strategy for effective time management?

In the last 2 days, I participated in conversations with 3 different coaches on this subject.  […]

Should You Celebrate “All or Nothing Day”?

Yes – there really is an “All or Nothing Day”!  Is approaching your life in an all or nothing way productive?  My thought is “no”.   I often try to see both sides of an issue – however, I’m struggling to see the “YES” part of this question.  (So if you are a proponent of All or Nothing Thinking – I urge you to post […]

Dear SystemSavvy,
I find that I am easily distracted lately.  My neighbors stop over, my husband is home more, the weather is nice . . .  My new sales year just started and I already feel behind on my goals.  How can I enjoy the best parts of summer, yet still work my business?
Sincerely,
Ms. Falling Behind
