Let’s be honest, we all have at least one (or ten) tasks that we should have knocked out days, weeks, or months ago. If you’re anything like me, you might be a tad overwhelmed with all the things you want to do for your business, so you just end up procrastinating.
Hosting that Instagram stories class you’ve been wanting to host, but that means you have to get ready because you’re going to show your face to your followers.
Or it’s following up with your friends who have decided to join you on this journey with Young Living.
Or maybe it’s just responding to the messages sitting in your inbox.
It’s silly, we know what we need to do. We know these thing are important. And if we could just get them done, the payoff will be huge. But for some reason, the amount of things we have to do overwhelms us, and we keep putting them off until later.
I have a strategy for when I start to feel that panicky feeling of not knowing what to do next, or when I find myself mindlessly scrolling and not working.
I do a brain dump. A brain dump is a complete transfer of all the ideas about a particular subject swirling around in your brain to paper. (Or a Google Doc works too 😉)
For me this looks like taking out my journal, and writing down every single thing I want to do for my business; not just that day, but for the days to come.
Then I take it one step further. I pick the top three things I want to get done that day, and I only focus on those tasks. After I’ve completed them, I’ll come back to my brain dump and pick three more. Doing it this way allows my brain to focus on what I deem most important for the day, vs. getting option anxiety over what I should be doing next.
I’m rooting for you, friend. Give this a shot the next time you find yourself not knowing what you want to be working on for your business.
