Get Back Up Again

It is okay to fall off the bandwagon, not follow through with your habits such as journalling, exercising, and meditating etc. 

We have all been there, just remember a few things:

You always learn something new each time that you fall off the bandwagon 

You can start again the next day

Take the time to readjust your habits and daily tasks

More often than not, you have to have a set back before you plough forward. 


The Most Important Time Is Now

What would you do if you had enough time?

It can feel like 24 hours isn’t enough to get everything done. But ask yourself, how much of those 24 hours do we waste?

Yes rest and recovery is as important as being productive because we need to ensure that our mind and body are both in a good condition.

I want to tell you that there is enough time. 

You need to make time for the things that you feel are important to you. Take a look at your priorities and play around with them. Set your goals, make the correct changes and progress to where you want to go. 

Make It Happen

If you want something, go and get it. That is my motto. I am currently chasing my dream and have big and exciing things coming up in 2021.

Many people don’t actually know what to do when they set goals. They find it too overwhelming and then end up letting what they want take a back seat.

The best way to set your goals is to write down a list of things that you want to achieve and leave it somewhere that you can see so you know exactly what you are working towards.

Secondly, break down the goals. If you have a list of 20 things you want to do, are you going to do it? No, you are most likely going to think just give up. Break them down into periods of the year, quaterly, half way etc. That way you set yourself a realistic deadline to complete your tasks.

A goal without a timeline is just a dream.

How To Run A Business Alongside A Full-Time Job.

I am now back to doing a 9-5 job and let me just say, it feels good to havea routine again.

We all have hobbies that we enjoy and want to make a career out of whether that is making music, painting, blogging, sports etc.

We all wish that we don’t need to work multiple hours and see the money appear in our bank account, but sadly that is not the case.

However, the next question is how do you run your side jobs alongside working 9-5?

Here are a few tips of mine that should help you find the balance.

I like mornings, it is where I am most productive, so I get up, have my tea/coffee, do a workout then I spend about an hour on a project, for me that might be writing my weekly email, blogs or working on my fitness/ nutrition guides.

Once I do that, I head to work. I like to enjoy my lunch breaks and just take the time to eat my food so I don’t do other projects during this time.

Once I am home from work, I then work on my projects for around another hour/ hour and a half. I live by calendars, I colour co-ordinate my calendars and time block.

Have realistic deadlines and commit to it. That way you will actually get things done. It will simply begin to fall into your routine and become part of the running of your day.

If it is a new project that you are starting, ensure you always have a plan in place. Do reasearch, and break down the project into small parts. For example if you are writing a fitness guide, break it down inti sections, such as week 1: write the workouts, week 2: take photos for the guide etc and then by week 6, the launch date and it will actually be completed on time.

My final tip is do not work all weekend. Set time aside for your work, but always make sure you have time for yourself and to do the things that you want to like Netflix, go out with friends and family, read a book etc.

Currently every week I write at least 3 blogs, one weekly email, website work, client check-ins and I also study. I can say that a few times I have spent the whole weekend just trying to finish things which euqates to stress and you wont enjoy it anymore.
