Have you been wanting to be more effective in your workday? Have you been growing tired of your lifeless routine? Then this post is for you!
You should not be a slave to your routine. Your routine should create freedom for you. I have three steps that will help you find this freedom.
Step 1: Dream-line
Step 2: Discipline
Step 3: Administer
Today I am sharing all about Step # 1 Dreamlining!
Step 1: Dreamline
What would your perfect ordinary day look like? What would you do if you had no restrictions? How would you feel? Get out a paper and write these things down.
Now think about how you can include these things in your day, even in small bits.
You might be thinking, what do my personal hopes for my days have to do with my work routine: The answer is everything.
You need to protect the main asset to your business and that is yourself. If you are not getting enough sleep, eating well or being filled up then your business will suffer. You cannot create your best work if you are woking from a place of stress.
Here is an example of an imaginary girl named Fiona. She a spunky florist who is two years into her business and wanting to create disciplined habits so her business can flourish!
For her a perfect ordinary day would include things like:
- Walking her dog
- Spending time outside in her garden
- Running 3 miles
- Learn french
She doesn't have time to do all of these things as much as she would hope but she got creative to have more of each of the things she loves in her day.
When she walks her dog she also listens to and audio book. She takes 10 minutes to practice french on her lunch break. She isn't fast enough to run 3 miles before work so she just runs 2 on the week days.
I hope the step number one was helpful and that you are on your way to having a great routine that will help your business flourish! Be sure to keep your eye out for the next two steps coming to you soon!
