What is ‘busy’ helping you avoid?

What is ‘busy’ helping you avoid?

A good friend asked me a very powerful question recently, which I’m sharing with you today. And this is what has been tumbling around in my head for days. What is ‘busy’ helping you avoid?

I share my reflections from the brink of burnout, and how I’m coping with ‘quiet’ now.

Prioritising tasks in your business – What you should focus on first

Prioritising tasks in your business – What you should focus on first

In this episode, I’m going to cover prioritising tasks in your business  and what you should focus on first. One of the members of my neurodivergent business collective recently asked me this question, “ I’m not sure of the order to follow. What should I set up first? What will help my business? How much time could be allocated to different business tasks. “ This question, and I feel like many of you will benefit from hearing the answer. So I thought I would make today’s podcast episode all about this. I think an important factor here is that depending on the stage of your business, there will be different amount of time spent on different parts of your business.

Goals! How do they make you feel? Fuzzy goals and intentions are fine too!

Goals! How do they make you feel? Fuzzy goals and intentions are fine too!

The topic of being afraid to set clear or big goals for your business has come up in discussions with a couple of my coaching clients.

It’s not the first time, and it’s utterly relatable to me too. If this sounds a bit like you, read on!

I will preface this by saying that there are many forms that ‘goals’ or intentions can take, and each format serves different people in different ways. There is certainly a case for being goal-less, especially if you experience demand avoidance where a goal can see super demanding and intense, but it’s something I suggest exploring further rather than just throwing all goals away!

One of my SpIns (Special Interests) is Systems and Automations. If this is making you excited, read on. And if your eyes are glazing over, please read on anyway cause you probably need this more than anyone…

Here’s the beauty of systematising & automating – it can take the sting out of so many of these things that make us go ICK or AVOID.

Little me worked 12 hour shifts. Little me had no idea that down-time and quiet time was OK and valid…

Deep in my Dropbox folder, I recently found an export of my blog posts from 2001-2010 (that were hosted on a site that is now long gone 😭).

Here’s an excerpt I found from when I was an English teacher, teaching English to adults who came from around the world to Australia. I frequently worked double shifts. For context, I was 23 years old and had zero kids, and lived with my parents.

Here’s my content creation workflow

Sometimes I plan carefully, following the process I outline in this post. Autistic me shines.

Sometimes I’m chaotic and my ADHD takes over, and I post something quickly as it pops into my head.

Let go of something good to invite in something BETTER!

Let go of something good to invite in something BETTER!

Are you holding onto something in your business just because it’s good, even though it might not be the best fit for your future?

In the podcast episode of my Differently Aligned Podcast, I explore the idea that sometimes, letting go of something good can open the door to something even better.

By embracing this concept, you can make room for greater joy, profit, and alignment in your business.

It’s not just about cutting out what’s not working, but also about being brave enough to step away from what’s ‘good enough’ to invite in something exceptional.

Stop Something Good to Invite Something Better into Your Business

Stop Something Good to Invite Something Better into Your Business

In this episode, I’ll be sharing more about the concept of sunk cost fallacy and why we tend to hold on to things that we’ve already invested in, such as time, money, or effort, and how this affects our business decisions. Whether it’s reassessing our business services, business model, team dynamics, or even our calendar schedule. I want to help you maximise your joy in life, your profit in business, your ease and flow and goodness of business and alignment of the business to you. And we don’t just do that by only cutting out things that are not going well. We actually need to continually question everything that we’re doing in our business and lives as well. What can you let go of in your business, even if it’s going well, that by letting it go you may likely invite in more good things, more calm, more alignment, more money, more chill, and bigger impact when all of that alignment is going on for you.

Try this if you feel overwhelmed with the mountain of tasks ahead of you

Try this if you feel overwhelmed with the mountain of tasks ahead of you

Hands up if you experience difficulty with prioritisation… and you often feel overwhelmed with the mountain of tasks ahead of you?

You might find it challenging to identify and/or stick to your priorities.

This can leave you feeling overwhelmed and frozen, or working on random tasks…

(can you see me waving my hand in the air wildly? Hi, it’s me.)

If you only swap time-for-money, you’re at a high risk of burn-out. Here’s what you can do.

If you only swap time-for-money, you’re at a high risk of burn-out. Here’s what you can do.

I wanted to share something that I support my clients and community with… regaining time and calm by shifting your work away from a direct time-to-money connection.

If you’re a service-based business owner, what % of your revenue comes from direct time-for-money services? You see a client, they pay you, you have money.

What % of your revenue comes in a more flexible way, that is not a direct time-for-money swap?

There are no wrong answers. Only experiments.

There are no wrong answers. Only experiments.

One of the wonderful and challenging parts of running your own business is just how much freedom you get. You call the shots. You make the choices. You pick the priorities.
This can be super freeing and it can also be really intense and lead to decision fatigue.
As you read this now, if you’re grappling with ANY fork-in-the-road decision I want you to know this…

You don’t owe content to anyone, and anything you *do* put out there is a win

You don’t owe content to anyone, and anything you *do* put out there is a win

I wanted to share with you some big key ideas that I’ll be coming back to all day:

Your content creation for your business needs to fit your energy, brain, interests, goals and life.

If your content creation fluctuates, that’s OK.

You don’t owe content to anyone, and anything you *do* put out there is a win.

You get to create content in a way that is fun and interesting for you. And if that looks different to what others say is ‘best practice’, that’s fine!

All content is a series of experiments. Approach this as part art, part science.

You do whatever is best for you and your business, and show up (or don’t) as much as you can each day and week.
