How to Get More Focus As An Entrepreneur (Part 2)
This is part II of the article “7 Keys to Get Laser Focused as an Entrepreneur”
Earlier this week I shared the first four steps…
1 – CREATE A BASELINE INCOME
2 – BEGIN WITH YOUR DREAM PROJECT
3 – PRIORITIZE
4 – PHASE YOUR CREATIONS
Today, I’ll cover the remaining 3 steps if you have difficulty getting focused and creating results from all your ideas.
5 – BEGIN SAYING NO
To clear your calendar to create what is most important to you, I guarantee that you need to begin saying NO more frequently.
Recently, when I knew I had to make a shift in my life and business, I mentally CLEARED THE TABLE. That meant that rather than taking out the things that I didn’t want in my life, I had to just take it all out, clear the slate, so to speak, and slowly add the things I wanted back in.
I did this with EVERYTHING: relationships, commitments, team members, businesses, etc.
I know, it can feel scary. But, I promise, the clarity you will have from creating life on your terms will fuel the results of your efforts.
I actually had to give myself permission to drop some balls. I had to suspend judgement of myself and know that I would go through some temporary pain, but it was the only way to get on the right track to creating what I really wanted.
This quote spoke deeply to my heart at that time:
‘Nothing’s worth leaving myself for. Not being on time, not getting everything done, not “getting” love. If the whole world falls apart because I do what it takes to stay right here, in deliciously continuous contact with myself, so be it. If I lose some money, lose some friends, and let balls drop like flies, so be it. I would die for this beauty of myself, unfolding at the speed of blooming.’ ~ Lindsay Sworski
6 – CELEBRATE PROGRESS
Take time to enjoy the journey and to celebrate every step of progress. Breath. Savor. Enjoy. Anything can be course corrected from a place of forward motion. With clarity of focus you can actually begin to create rather than just spin in “trying to figure out how”.
7 – GET SUPPORT
For the past 3 years, I have been part of a mastermind group called “Who Do You Think You Are?” We hold each other accountable to be bold in our creations. We say that if we are not hearing others or our own internal voice saying, “Who do you think you are?” then we are not being bold enough.
If you are interested in surrounding yourself with a group of individuals committed to creating amazing things in the world, be sure to catch my next training:
