How to get things done that are important to you

I know what it feels like to have these ideas and dreams and struggle to get started. Figuring out what is important and how to get things done can be challenging.

I have 3 kids, am a multi-passionate and run 3 businesses. It wasn’t until I discovered how to create focus and time management skills that suited me that I began making an impact in my life and in my businesses.

But just how to do you identify what is important to you? How to narrow down what your steps are to move towards your goal?

At the end of each month, I sit down and get clear on the goals that I want to achieve. I start with the main goal and then break it down into smaller goals. The smaller goals are the action steps that support the main goal.

This will look like this:

  • Main Goal
    • Smaller goal
    • Smaller goal
    • Smaller goal

You can create as many smaller goals as you need that will support your main goal. And once you have identified what will help you achieve the main goal, it is time to create action steps for each goal.

  • Smaller goal
    • Action step
    • Action step
    • Action step

The one thing I learned that may be helpful to you is that goals and action steps change. It’s important to allow for flexibility and recognize when something becomes less important.

Here’s the thing to remember, all those smaller goals and action steps support your main goal, and you can work them into your schedule. Start with the one that seems most important or pressing to get done, and add it to your daily planner.

Then look at all the other steps and tasks you need to get done and rank them by priority and fit them into your schedule accordingly. Some tasks will take less time than others. Some smaller goals you can get done in one day while other’s need to be spread out over a week or months.

Getting clear on your goals

Challenge, situation or circumstance I have been asked: How do you do it?

This is a simple enough question, except that I have struggled to give the answer because I just do. It is such an automatic process because it is something that I have always done.

I have very little room for bullshit such as excuses, whining and complaining. I get an idea and if it excites me enough I work towards to make it happen. Like running a 14-Day Coloring Challenge that in the middle of creating it prompted me to redo the entire website for my coloring page collection.

But sometimes one must dig deeper for the bigger vision. So here is my process:

  • I get clear on what I wanted
  • I create a vision of the result I want to achieve
  • I do the work required to make it happen

This isn’t always as easy as it seems because obstacles and hurdles come up and try to get in the way. Fear, frustration, and self-doubt will trip you up and others, including your ego, will tell you that you can’t do it.

I was told I am a failure but if failure means going to school, graduating with two degrees and raising my children well, then I have succeeded! I win!

To gain the confidence, you must do the work and once you do the work all those negative voices will be silenced!

Going after your goal is scary and you will hear that you are not smart enough, that you are not good enough but who the heck are those naysayers? What do they know? They only know what they believe about themselves – because they didn’t go to college, you can’t go to college. Because they were told to work a job for their rest of their lives, they can’t have a business of their own and neither can you!

Well to hell with that!

Go and get clear on your dreams and turn them into focused oriented goals!

What’s it going to take before you will take action

You have this amazing dream of writing a book, starting a business and perhaps even lose some weight. And yet, here we are at the end of May and you’re looking everything, realizing you didn’t get very far.

What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for the perfect moment?
Are you waiting for until you’ve perfected the skill?
Are you waiting for the moment you feel you’re enough?

Why can’t it be right this very moment?

What is holding you back?

Is it fear of failing? Fear of disappointing yourself or others?

Worry?

The lack of not knowing how?

Every excuse you make is a bullshit reason for why you are not willing to make your dream, goal or resolution happen.

When is enough, well enough?

How much longer are you willing to just watch others make their own dreams come true while you are still wishing you could?

Here is the truth: You can!

You need to stop making excuses and start taking action – even when the fear is as loud as a damn jet engine.

Fear is just an emotion, just like anger, love, happiness etc. Are you willing to allow the emotion to rule you, or are you willing to decide how you are going to feel and what you are going to do?

I think too often, we forget that we have a choice.

We always have a choice!

When we were kids, we were told we don’t have a choice. We need to follow the rules, do as we are told. We are told to graduate high school, go to college or learn a trade.

We are told that we should be grateful for the job we have and just go on with our mediocre life.

Yes, I said it: MEDIOCRE

Because I know you envision your life to be different. I know that you have dreams and goals that you want to achieve but because you were told you didn’t have a choice, you just let life slip on by.

What if I told you that you are in control of your life, that you have the power to choose what you will or will not do and how you will live?

Choose and Decide!

What’s it going to be? Living your life to the rules of someone else or your own?

Working from home was the best decision I’ve ever made


I’ve had what feels like a gazillion jobs over the years but the reality is that it’s only ever been 8 or 9, and I struggled with not being able to stick with ONE job. But something I’ve realized over the years, some of us aren’t wired that way.

Some of us cannot be tied down to a job like that because we get bored.

Some of us have a little bit of an issue with authority.

Some of us would prefer to wake up when we wake and mosy on over to our desk or couch to get to work.

I am that kind of a person.

But more than anything else I am a mom and this is the one “job” I’ve held the longest (go me!). I’ve always enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom if you will. I’ve also always been a doer, I can’t just sit on the couch, watch TV and eat bonbons.

And over the years I’ve explored different ideas, followed opportunities and then I became a special-needs mom, which meant (to me) that I had to find something that I could do from home so I could be present when my kids needed me.

And here we are today!

And I also know lot’s of my friends have gone down a similar path and maybe you are ready to figure out how to create a living being at home with your kiddos, or while drinking coffee sitting on your deck.

We all had different reasons for starting down this path.

  • Escape corporate and find more satisfying work
  • Find jobs that allowed us to work from anywhere so we could travel more
  • Discover flexibility so we could be there for our families when they needed us
  • Identify any skills (other than cleaning and laundry) that could provide some disposable income.

Whatever the reason that brought us here, now we’re looking for work + life balance and how to be more focused on our work so we can spend more time with our family that we dreamed of.

If it sounds tough, I have something to make it easier for you.

 

What if I told you someone had already put together a carefully vetted package to get you up to speed on finding real work-at-home opportunities (AND making your work + life balance better once you’re working from home)?

Well, you can stop looking! It’s here…And I gotta tell you, that I wished something like this existed 15 years ago when I started to venture into being in business for myself. But there’s always something to learn and I am excited that this bundle exists to help people like you and me, become the CEO of our lives.

You really are only one decision away to a completely different life.

  • Create simple work routines to fit your family’s schedule.
  • Master the art of squeezing more work into the time you have.
  • Identify your marketable skills and differentiate yourself from the competition.
  • Turn your business & entrepreneurial dreams into a reality.
  • Learn legal and accounting best practices to keep you worry-free.
  • Develop clear work and home life boundaries, so you can plan your days for success.

  1. Visit their website, take a quick look at all the goodness that comes in this package, then click the “Get my copy now!” button to go through their simple and secure 3-step checkout process.
  2. You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading your eBooks, signing up for your eCourses, and redeeming your free bonus offers.

You deserve to do the work you love. You shouldn’t have to wait any longer to finally find the work freedom you’ve been looking for, or the work + life balance you’ve been waiting to achieve. Because seriously, some of us really have to forge our own path. And just think you can show other people what IS possible!

Rebel Kickstart Accountability & Group Coaching Community

Are you taking action, staying productive towards your goals?

How’s that going for you?

Do you have the clarity you need for your monthly action plan

Or

You have an idea for a goal, kinda started taking action but then either procrastinated or just well didn’t do the things you needed to be doing?

I’ve been exactly in that spot and have often procrastinated on something or I’ve said “one day”, “when the time is right”, “someday” … and in the end, I actually well didn’t do anything about it.

And what followed is the negative self-talk about how I am such a flake and no one believes me I will do these things when I don’t even believe them myself.

And in recent years that has changed for me because I have absolute clarity on why I do anything in life or in business, I have a plan that pushes me just enough out of the comfort zone, so I don’t freak you and I do the work to make it happen.

For me, there have been some key elements to go from wasting time to doing and making it happen. And here’s the thing, since I have struggled with clarity, planning, and doing in the past, I know that others may be facing the same challenges.

Welcome to Rebel Kickstart

I’ve been talking about creating a vision, planning and taking action for a really long time but felt maybe there’s something missing, such as accountability, group coaching and receiving the knowledge YOU want.

Rebel Kickstart is designed with the community in mind because this is where support, accountability, and feedback are the most valuable.

And there’s something about a community that plans, works and learns together:

Comfort zones are being pushed.

Things are getting done.

Goals get achieved.

And for the life of me, I can’t think of a reason why someone wouldn’t want this unless living in the realm of excuses feels good.
