This past week I was crazy busy. This was completely my doing, as I wanted to spend time with a group of Rotarians visiting from Nepal. We had to be up each morning by 5:30 to prepare for the day. I enjoyed cooking breakfast most of the mornings, and on other days we were expected at someone else’s house for breakfast before eight o’clock.
Then we had activities throughout the day and into the evening. Trying to transport 10 to 12 people in two or three vehicles was an exercise in logistical gymnastics. Each of the visitors had their own schedule and agenda, so we needed to coordinate who would be going where and how they would then meet up with the rest of us later in the day. Each night was a dinner at a different location, with people driving several hours in many cases to meet the Nepalese guests.
During this same time my Rotary Club was preparing for our annual fundraiser, the Rotary Luau, and I am in charge of some of the arrangements that must be made in order to put on an event with more than 150 guests.
Keep in mind that I still have a personal life that must take precedence, as well as my online business. This week I am starting a new course, so I was setting that up as well.
The result was that I spent less time blogging and writing articles than I typically do. I also spent less time watching and listening to trainings that keep me abreast of changes in my industry. I made more money this week than I typically do, mainly because I now do a better job of marketing to my prospects and clients. If your life is crazy busy, take a look at what you can do to make it easier on yourself. Ask friends and family members for help. Make a schedule and stick to it. Make a list of priorities and do what is most important first. But, most of all, love what you are doing so that it never feels like work.
