Hello Superwoman! I know you want it all and you want to do it all. Me too! Here’s the problem- your mental energy and conscious effort is exhaustible. You likely often run out of will before you finish everything that you feel you “need” to do. No matter how much you accomplish, you end up feeling “blah” because of the things you didn’t accomplish. Sound familiar? The problem is decisions drain you and you have left too many decisions and tasks on your plate. When you have to constantly make decisions and be actively doing, your mental energy gets zapped. Consequently the decisions that you make later in the day don’t really reflect your priorities. When you are drained, you pick whatever is easy because you don’t have the energy to choose differently. After all why do so many of us start the day great- eating well and staying on course only to have it all fall apart at night? Because we are DRAINED! Well I have a solution. If we you are going to truly have It all, you need to begin with a few simple steps.
STEPS TO HAVING IT ALL!
Step #1: Choose your priorities don’t feel guilty about the things that did not make the list- everything can’t make the list.
Step #2: Figure out which priorities (or parts of the priorities) can be automated, delegated, simplified, or outsourced and then DO IT!
Step #3: Evaluate the outcome and repeat the process. Here is my list of things that can easily be automated, delegated, simplified, or outsourced… only if you are brave enough to make the change to make more time for yourself.
