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.

Often times we are working towards whatever success means to us. As self-help coaches, we are also helping our clients towards that same endeavour. However, we know that deep down, ultimately, they are the ones who are responsible for their success. No matter how great of a coach you are, if someone doesn’t do the work (physical and/or non-physical), there is little you can do to help them.
The same of course, applies to us and our dreams and ambitions. We are the ones who are ultimately responsible for our success.
Recently, I had an experience where I heard the affirmation, ‘Be Available’.
It spurred so many thoughts in my head and I knew this was a powerful statement…

Have you ever looked at your inbox and felt hopeless and overwhelmed?
I have felt that way, too. I couldn't figure out how such an easy tool was taking up so much of my time.
In the pursuit of not wanting to feel that way myself, I set out to discover how I can manage my time more effectively on this very topic. As I uncovered the right information I realized that it is of course, small shifts that make a big difference when it comes to not feeling burdened by my own inbox.
Now, I want to share these tips with you so that you too, can feel less stress and have more time in your business - woo hoo!

What do Lady Gaga, Martin Luther King, Jesus, Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan and J.K. Rowling all have in common?
This is quite the group of eclectic people, yet they do have a commonality other than being super successful in their respective fields. It is a common thread that helped them all become that celebrated. Their thread….

As busy self-help coaches running households, businesses and a life, it can sometimes feel a little overwhelming.
It’s important for us to know the best strategies of how to effectively use our time so we can work smarter, not harder, right? :)
In fact, I did a previous post on 3 Ways To Increase Your Productivity & Maximize Your Time that will be a great addition to this post if you haven’t seen it yet, or need a refresher.
Well, this month I finally learned a lesson on a new level that I have been practicing somewhat on and off over the last year or two. Once I learned it I realized, ‘WOW, this literally triples productivity!’
