[158] 10 Steps to Put Boundaries Around your Work

 

Do you struggle with putting boundaries around your work – especially if you work from home?

Maybe you have trouble setting working hours and sticking to them… or getting friends and family to respect them.

Do you find yourself checking your email at 11pm and then having to go into work mode because you’ve read an email you feel like you need to answer right now?!

Do you find it hard to get stuff done because people are always interrupting your work time?

Do you get started… then suddenly remember the washing that needs to go on?

There are a lot of things that can get in the way of getting our work done – some of them are in our own minds, and some of them are external… but no matter what, you are the one with the power and responsibility to set boundaries that ensure you get done what you need to get done.

In this episode I outline 10 steps I recommend you follow in order to get your work done in a more calm, productive way!

What is the Making It Podcourse?

Over four weeks in July 2018, I’ll be releasing an episode/lesson of this course every day via the Create & Thrive Podcast (30 in total) on the topics of mindset, money, marketing, and business management.

I’ve created this course specifically for makers – those who create handmade goods to sell.

To create this FREE course, I’ve drawn on my 10 years of experience running my own successful handmade business, coupled with over 5 years of teaching other makers about handmade business right here at Create & Thrive.

I wanted to create something that was actionable and practical for all makers, no matter what stage of business you are at, and that would allow you to dig deep into 4 key aspects of the crafty biz journey.

I hope it helps your handmade business to thrive!

If you want to take your learning to the next level, the course conversation is happening daily over in my private membership community for makers – the Thriver Circle.

You can find out more about the oodles of benefits of membership right here.

Is your schedule under your control… or a bit of a mess?

In today’s #MakingItPodcourse lesson, I talk schedule management. I share one of my top tips for making sure you don’t over-schedule yourself, discuss the concept of a real ideal day, and share the idea of modifying or planning your schedule around your own natural rhythms or cycles.

#MakingItPodcourse: Business Management | Lesson 26: Manage Your Workflow & Business Systems

Today on the #MakingItPodcourse I’m talking systems and workflow.

I share a couple of my own systems, and discuss why setting up systems matters – it saves you time, energy (both mental and physical) and ensures you make less mistakes!

Not only that – if you’ve ever thought about outsourcing parts of your business, you need to ensure you have strong, robust systems in place and documented so you can teach someone else how to do things the way you want them done.

#MakingItPodcourse: Business Management | Lesson 25: Manage Your Time

 

Today on the #MakingItPodcourse we’re talking about time – and how to manage it.

I’ll discuss how setting goals & prioritising tasks can help you overcome analysis paralysis, and ensure that you can best use the time you have – rather than getting stuck because you don’t know what you need to work on next.
