entertainment industry coach Question 464: I've been reading your blogs and there's so much to do I'm overwhelmed!
I call that an A-List problem. Most people have no idea what to do, and continue to do the same 3-5 things over and over with disappointing results. Now YOU are filled with ideas and action plans. That's GREAT! Feeling overwhelmed... not great.
Here are some tips:
1. Make a list of all of your ideas/actions
2. Analyze which ideas/actions will get you the results you want in the shortest time
3. Prioritize your ideas/actions in the order of quickest results to long-term seed planting
4. Chunk out your days for 1 week on a calendar. Schedule a specific number of hours for quick result actions and a shorter amount of time to plant seeds.
5. See if using a schedule works for you and if so, do it again next week.
You are a business so it's important to treat your time the way you would if you worked in an office, with the knowledge that you have the freedom to come and go as you please.
