Over the last year I have been testing out a new way of working: “Do Less To Get More Done.” I had heard of this concept many times before, however, it wasn’t until 2013 when I really started to put this into practice (most of the time… I’m a work-in-progress like everyone!).
Here’s what I had to learn:
- make decisions faster
- say “No” a lot more
- let go
- did I mention, trust?
For most entrepreneurs, who are “doers”, this concept is foreign. We live in a culture that celebrates hard work, persistence and “go, go, go!” Realistically, that is how a lot of success has happened for a lot of people. But I began to ponder: Is there a better way, really?
After years of running myself ragged, I decided it was time to find out.

If you take the time to pre-plan your year you will be well ahead of the rest of your competitors. You will also have a much better chance at creating stronger marketing that will lead to higher conversion rates, thus more profits and impact.
Here it is...

Are you on your way to a goal? Have you been doing your affirmations, visualizations and focusing yet nothing seems to be showing up as a physical manifestation of what you really want?
This is a common occurrence for many self-help coaches during the time that I like to call the ‘manifesting hump’. The manifesting hump is that time when you have worked long and hard but you haven’t gone over the hump to exponential growth or results… yet.
It’s about the same time a lot of people start to give up and move on to something else yet if only they had stayed a little longer, they just might have saw the fruits of their labour.
So, what do you do when you are in the manifesting hump?
