Like most entrepreneurs I always have more to do than I have time to get it all done. There’s always an invisible priority list in my brain and I end up doing all ‘those’ things first in between appointments.
The thing about appointments is that they take way longer than just the time of the meeting so it can feel like the day gets sucked up with even one appointment away from my office.
I’m sure many of you know exactly what I’m talking about. Like yesterday, I met two people at a cafe at 1:30. It was an excellent meeting and I left the location at 3:45 and then stopped at the grocery store on the way back. When I arrived at my home office, I checked my messages and e-mails and before I knew it the work day was over.
Another day with important stuff that didn’t get done. The solution: Schedule days with no appointments. Zero. Today is one of those days. It feels like my energy field is huge and expansive. I have managed to complete tasks that should have been done 30 days ago. it feels great. I do one day per week like this. One day each week with no appointments.
The challenge is to stick to your commitment. It requires you to draw a line through that day in your book because otherwise, you’ll see the blank space and think you can fill it up. Try it and let me know how it feels.
