I sometimes feel overwhelmed. As a business owner, I find myself cooking about eight things at once. My five burner stove is running full blast, I've got two things in the oven, and I'm trying to make a salad in a bowl on the counter. It's no wonder at least half of the things I've worked on in the past have burned.
Alright, I'll stop with the cooking metaphor (although I love to cook)!
Currently, as of January 18th, 2019, we are working on a bunch of things in the company - creating case studies for past successful clients, writing blog posts, getting our mailing list organized, training our photographers to be as great as they can be, reaching out to past clients and letting them know about our other videography and marketing services, and signing up new business consulting and career coaching clients. On top of that we're still running our usual day to day business operations.
It's pretty crazy when we think about it. We all have tons of things to be doing in life, from family responsibilities like making sure we give our kids enough of our time, to professional projects that have to be finished before looming deadlines.
And on top of that, we each have our own personal goals, such as running a 6-minute mile or organizing and planning that dream vacation. How do we prioritize to focus on what really matters?
There are only a certain number of hours in the day, so it's vital that we focus on our most important tasks to ensure they get done. Its OK to allow other things that are not as important to get pushed to the side or even never get done!
