Happy Monday! In today’s Big Questions, Short Answers episode, we’re answering the question: how do you find the time?
TBH, as long as you believe that someday you’re going to magically find more time—you’re definitely not going to have the time to build your side hustle, get that promotion or do anything else. (I know because I spent years believing this too.)
In this episode, I talk about where I went wrong in trying to find time, burnout, and the ONE thing that finally worked for me, a time study. (My business coach had me audit my time and it’s a game-changer. Beware: completing a time study is going to open your eyes to your own BS. Get ready!)
My last piece of advice is to explicitly write out the steps that will get you from where you are now to where you want to be—and hold yourself accountable to them. The simple steps covered in this episode worked for me, and I bet they’ll help you make more time.
