1. Create more
It’s funny to think about how when we turn what we love into a business, we get away from doing what it is that we actually love. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Often times it feels like 98% of time is spent on behind the scenes + admin work and 2% on creation. I want to be better about scheduling time just to create, otherwise it doesn’t happen.
2. Bring the blog back to life
Consistency with blogging is something I’ve struggled with for a long time. It’s not our main bread and butter, but it’s something I enjoy so much. One post can take several hours and no matter how hard I try, it always starts off great but eventually falls to the back burner..
I see the opportunity though, and I’m not giving up! I’m determined to figure out a process to make this happen in a way that’s valuable to you AND makes sense from a business perspective 😎
3. Complete the online courses I’ve enrolled in
AND implement what I learn!
Investing in your expertise not only adds value to your work, but saves you so much time! Search engines are a great resource, but piecing together bits of information doesn’t always provide the full picture – AND it’s time consuming. As your time becomes more and more valuable, learning from an expert really pays off!
4. Work from a place of rest, not stress
Last year was the first time I experienced true burnout. I used to think burnout meant you didn’t like what you were doing anymore – turns out, that’s not the case at all!
I was working 12-14 hour days because we were in our busiest season yet, it was amazing! However, my sleep, mood, and food all suffered for a bit. It’s a chain reaction, my energy was at zero. And now I have gray hair. So, I’m going to try to prevent this by planning ahead and being intentional with my workload.
Let me know your thoughts! What are some of your focuses for the year?! 👇🏼🤗
