Does this sound familiar??
I'm tired and overwhelmed. But in a way I'm not...I'm not sleeping well, my mind is racing, I am talking aloud to myself. I have actually become a person who has a notepad next to them at all times so when ideas creep in I can jot them down and get them out of my head.
So, yes, I'm tired and overwhelmed...but I LOVE what I am creating!
It is so worth the lack of sleep (at this point!). I am thankful that in my previous life I was a well organized school teacher. I had all the coordinating colors on the calendar and lesson plans planned out weeks in advance. THIS! THIS has been the most useful tool in helping me start this small business.
Let me share a piece of advice...and I know this may sound weird because I am in social media and everything should be "techy" so I risk even telling you this...but my trick is to WRITE IT ALL OUT. I literally have a planner that write and schedule things in. My social media content calendar is written out first then put into my program. I have a separate notebooks for my "to-do" lists, content thoughts and for each small business I work with.
This is how I stay organized. If I am speaking or meeting with one client, I pull that notebook full of my random and not so random thoughts and off I go.
I cannot even tell you how much of a difference this has made in me staying afloat and able to handle being tired and overwhelmed because of the million and one thoughts running through my head!
So what do you do when all comes rushing towards you at once? How do you maintain your sense of normalcy without compromising your work productivity?
