Think about it for a second. What is stealing your time?
OK, I'm going to stop you right there because that's your big problem: thinking about it.
Our friend Heather Lahtinen, the master of productivity and top dog at Flourish Academy, recently learned that the best way to get things done is less thinking – more doing.
If you give yourself too much time and flexibility to do one task, you're also giving yourself time to cultivate self-doubt and avoidance. And you're painfully limiting the amount of time you have left to get everything else done.
Imagine if you set a timer to work on that one project for just one hour, eliminating all distractions like your phone and Facebook and your kids and … and … and …. Would you get it done?
Heather joins me on the Hair of the Dog podcast this week to talk about the discipline you need to set your pet photography business up for success.
What to listen for
11:44 Why you should you schedule your free time first
15:17 How more scheduling = more freedom
19:06 Why giving yourself too much time actually limits you
24:22 How to shift from reactivity to productivity
44:43 Why resistance is something you should embrace
Do you want more on productivity and time management? Of course you do! Heather and I are hosting a FREE Power Hour on Wednesday, May 10, to share some hacks that will help you get the important tasks done while still having time for other aspects of your life.
This is for photographers at all stages of their journey and it’s an actual workshop – meaning teaching < working. By the end of the hour, you’ll have learned how to optimize your time and achieve more with less effort.
