WHEN…You Think You Have Down Time…

You really don’t.

You have work-on-the-business time.

When I’m not seeing a notary client or writing, I’m working on my part time business. I’m working my marketing — online, offline and word of mouth. I am brainstorming new ways to reach prospect clients. I am working on other hustles.

I am always trying my best not to let a valuable moment go to waste. I would hate to have had chance to crush an opportunity but didn’t because I was Netflixing. Don’t get me wrong. I take time out chill and come back to it all, but I also remind myself to stay focus on the goal. Trust me, I watched Birdbox too. I wasn’t part of the crazy challenge though, but I was feelin’ the movie.

When it was over, I went back to brainstorming ideas for the notary business.

Down time is research time. Idea time. Planning time. And testing time. Follow up time. Respond to emails time. It’s never truly down just “down time”.

WHEN… you have more tasks than time

It is some easy to feel overwhelmed. It’s easy to feel like if you don’t get everything done right this second, you’re failing. And not only are you failing, but you’re also a fraud. For letting people believe that you could handle their project, service their business or charge them for your time. Because you haven’t handled it all right now.

The beauty of “right now” is that there is never a shortage of supply. Right now is right now. Literally and figuratively.

Breathe. You will get it all done. Maybe not right this very second for the the “right” now. Maybe you need to do a little more research. Maybe you have made all the calls or sent every possible email. But when you do. You right now will happen.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you don’t allow everything to take the pace it needs to get completed and thorough.
