Here comes Spring! I always think of spring cleaning but that doesn’t have to just be for your house!
First you need to get rid of the old to make way for the new. What is not serving you anymore? What are you holding on to just because you think you should or you think you might need it someday?
Are you holding onto clients that you aren’t happy working with just because of the money?
Are you doing work that you don’t enjoy out of habit or because you think no one can do it like you?
It’s time to change all that. Schedule an appointment with yourself and really think about your life. We schedule everything else, right? Schedule a “Me” Retreat and really give this some thought. You can go to the park for a few hours. Spend some time over coffee at a quiet coffee shop. Find a spot that is quiet and where you won’t be interrupted.
Here are some questions to get you started: What do you enjoy? What do you love? What’s working? Write that down. Now on the same paper write down all the things in your life right now that don’t make you leap for joy, that don’t make your heart sing.
Look at that list. I bet there’s a lot of time on there that you could free up by passing the things you don’t enjoy to someone that does. Or perhaps it’s learning to add the word “No” to your vocabulary. Things that don’t fall into the first two categories may require creating short and/or long term goals.
Now is the time to start spring cleaning and getting rid of the old to make space for the new. Next time we’ll talk about the new!
