Work Smarter instead of Working Harder

When I was a kid, my mom used to tell me that if I didn’t do my chores and get my homework done by a certain time, she would have to send me to bed without dinner. She wasn’t kidding; when I missed the deadline (which was often), she’d send me upstairs with no food for the night. While it may sound harsh today, this method worked for her because it forced me to learn how to manage my time efficiently—and that’s something we all need in order to succeed at work or in our personal lives.

There are many things you can do when working smarter instead of harder: plan things out beforehand so they don’t fall through the cracks later on; learn how automation can help save time; work on organization skills so everything doesn’t turn into a disorganized mess; prioritize tasks by importance/urgency/frequency (PIF); focus on one thing at a time rather than trying everything at once; start doing small tasks before tackling big ones so they don’t overwhelm you later on; take care of problems before they happen rather than reactively fixing them later down the road. These are just some examples of ways you can boost productivity in your day-to-day life!

Remember: You have a finite amount of time and energy to work with.

You have a limited amount of time and energy to work with. You can’t do everything, so you need to prioritize. The first step is knowing what is most important. Then you can set up your day such that it maximizes the time and energy spent on those things. Once you’ve done that, then you’ll know what isn’t important enough for you to spend your valuable resources on. Last but not least, there are always tasks that are urgent but not important: these should be handled quickly so they don’t add stress or interfere with other items on your agenda—but once those things are out of the way, don’t spend any more time working on them than absolutely necessary (if at all).

Plan your time wisely.

If you’re anything like me, you’re busy. You have a job and a family life, but your schedule is still packed with responsibilities. It can be hard to prioritize what needs to get done and when. One of the most effective ways to stay on top of your workload is to plan out your day ahead of time.

If you’ve never used a calendar before, don’t worry—it’s really not as complicated as it sounds! All it means is setting aside some time for yourself every day or week so that you can do things like eat lunch, relax after work and sleep at night (I’m sure my mother would appreciate that one).

What if I told you there was an app called Google Calendar? Well there is! And if you download this app onto your phone or computer then all those appointments will be in one place so no more excuses! But wait…what am I saying? Let’s just say that there are many different ways to plan out our days including:

Use the power of automation.

Automation can be a great way to save time and avoid mistakes. For example, if you have repetitive tasks that take up your time each day, consider automating them with a tool like Zoho Recruit or another Applicant Tracking System (ATS). By automating the process of posting job ads and tracking applicants as they apply in real-time, you will save yourself hours of wasted time while still being able to track the performance of people who apply.

Another area where automation comes in handy is when it comes to avoiding boredom. When working on projects that require creativity and brainstorming sessions, it’s easy for things to get boring quickly unless there’s some form of entertainment involved. This can lead us down a path where we keep coming back over and over again without making any progress at all because we’re too busy procrastinating or getting distracted by other activities such as social media sites like Facebook or Instagram—and this kind of behavior can lead directly towards stress!

But don’t worry–we’ve got an answer: podcasts! You may think podcasts are just something for those old folks sitting around waiting for their grandchildren during the holidays but did you know that podcasts are actually very popular among young professionals who want more from life than just their jobs?

Embrace getting organized.

A simple way to get organized is to start with the basics. If you have a desk and a computer, that’s enough to get started.

Once you’re in the habit of keeping your space clean and clear, it becomes easier to keep going in that direction. Over time, organization will become second nature and you won’t even have to think about it anymore!

Always have a backup plan.

  • Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for a raise or promotion, or if you’re not getting along with your coworker, it might benefit you, in the long run, to transfer out of that position and into one where you can thrive!

Focus on one thing at a time.

This is a simple concept, but it’s surprisingly difficult to keep up with. If you’re like me, it’s easy to get distracted by other things and lose focus on the task at hand.

Don’t let yourself get distracted! Don’t be afraid to say no when someone tries to distract you from working on that important report or project that needs your attention. Instead of saying yes and moving on to something else (which will only cause problems later), stay focused on what you need to do first: finish this thing that’s been hanging over your head for days/weeks/months/years!

Learn to accept the things you can’t change.

You can learn to accept the things you can’t change.

Acceptance is the first step in moving on. If you don’t accept something, trying to solve it won’t work. Acceptance is not resignation; it’s not giving up or being passive. The difference between acceptance and resignation isn’t a matter of degree—they’re completely different things!

If I had resigned myself to working at that job forever and not even bothering to try for another one (which would never have worked out anyway), then I’d have been stuck with that job for years longer than I was; meanwhile, my dream job would still be waiting for me until now…and I’d be older and less attractive as well as less experienced at what I do now!

Look for problems that will repeat themselves later and find ways to get ahead of them now.

Looking for problems that will repeat themselves later and finding ways to get ahead of them now is a great way to work smart. Here are some examples:

  • Every morning at work, you have coffee with your colleague who has been talking about her dream vacation for months. She always has an amazing story about the place she’s going next and what she’ll do there, but she never seems to be able to get around to booking it. You are a small-talk ninja and very good at keeping her talking without letting on that you’ve heard this same story 500 times before—and now you’re getting antsy because the two of you were supposed to meet 10 minutes ago! Wouldn’t it be better if your co-worker could actually take action toward planning her vacation instead of just talking about it? Now imagine if every day brought another opportunity like this: how many mornings would pass where your coworker was stuck in the same conversation until someone intervened? By looking ahead at recurring situations like these ones, we can find ways not only to save ourselves time but also help others become more efficient as well.

Say no to distractions (and don’t be afraid to do it often).

Focus on one thing at a time. It’s easy to get distracted when you’re in the middle of something, and it’s even easier when you have a lot of things on your plate. Instead of multitasking, try focusing on one task and finishing it before moving on to another. This is especially important while working, as it ensures that all tasks are completed efficiently so they don’t pile up later and turn into stressors when deadlines are looming.

A good way to stay focused is by setting aside dedicated time for planning: When I start working on an article or presentation, I like to set aside 30 minutes at the beginning just for research and brainstorming new ideas. And then once that first step is finished (and checked off my checklist), I can move forward with writing my draft or editing photos later—without worrying about forgetting anything critical along the way! Plus setting aside shorter blocks of time makes me feel less overwhelmed by big projects because they seem more manageable now; instead of staring down 12 hours straight until bedtime at 3am tomorrow morning (which has happened).

Smart choices are better than trying to do everything at once.

It’s tempting to try to do everything at once. You want to be productive, so you work harder and longer than you should. But it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes the opposite happens—you end up working less efficiently because you are spread too thin.

Smart choices are better than trying to do everything at once. When faced with multiple tasks on your plate, focus on one thing at a time. Give yourself permission not to complete all of them today! If there are things that will take longer than others, put them off until later in the week or even next month if need be (unless they’re urgent).

This isn’t always easy—especially when it comes from someone who’s used to putting their nose down and getting stuff done without asking for help—but if it means finishing your projects faster or better quality product, then consider delegating some tasks off to someone else who has more time than yourself (or can simply do what needs doing in half the time).

Conclusionfcv

We’ve seen how to work smart instead of hard, but there’s still one more question: is it worth it? It depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. If your goal is to get more done each day, then yes! By using these tips and tricks, you’ll find yourself saving time and energy that you can use toward other tasks.

You may be looking at the wrong thing. It could be that people are just not familiar with what you have to offer because they haven’t heard about it before. This is where having a coach can help.

Coaches will provide advice on how to get traction when launching any new product or service, whether it’s an app, website, physical product, or service-based business (such as coaching).

As an established entrepreneur, one thing I hear often from my clients is how they want more clarity around what their next big step should be in growing their businesses—and sometimes even if they should grow or stay put!

Taking the time and investing in yourself will help you reach your entrepreneurial dreams more quickly, with more support along the way.

How to Standout on your Social Media Accounts

We all have a lot of information thrown at us every day and it can feel like there’s no way to get your audience to see your posts, much less engage with them. But standing out is possible! Here are ten quick tips I’ve learned that will help you create posts people want to see and share.

Be original.

When you’re creating content, it’s important to not be afraid to be yourself. Don’t copy others and don’t be afraid to be unique. If you want your account to stand out in a crowded space, then the best thing you can do is express yourself creatively and boldly through your posts and stories. Don’t get discouraged if no one is following or engaging with your content at first—it takes time for people to find their way back around after being away for so long!

Be yourself.

It’s important to be yourself on your accounts. Don’t try to be someone you’re not or someone else. Don’t be afraid to share your opinions or failures; it makes you more relatable, which is what we’re all looking for!

Show your followers who you really are behind the posts.

You can even go a step further and give your followers a look into your life in real-time. Whether it’s a selfie of you at work, or a video of you cooking with friends, this will make them feel more connected to you and the brand.

Don’t overthink it! No one wants to see someone who is too afraid to be themselves online. As long as the content is relevant and interesting, there’s no need for perfectionism here!

Be careful not to get too personal though – if someone asks how much money you make per year, this may not be what they were looking for when they subscribed!

Give your followers a look into your life in real-time.

The best way to stand out on your accounts is by being yourself. When you’re posting in real-time, your followers will get a look into your life and will feel like they’re there with you.

It’s important to be authentic and honest about who you are, what you like and dislike, and what brings you joy and pain—all of this will help make an impression on the people following along with your posts. It’s also important that these posts reflect who they are as well; it doesn’t matter if they’re posting about their job or their family (or both). The goal should always be authenticity when communicating with others online because it makes for a more enjoyable experience for everyone involved!

Don’t overthink it.

It’s easy to overthink the process of standing out, but more often than not, you’ll find that your best work comes from being yourself. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes and don’t be afraid to try something new. If it doesn’t work out perfectly right away, just keep on trying until it does (or at least until you’re happy with what you’ve created).

Some people prefer to use a “throw everything at the wall and see what sticks” strategy when creating content; others are convinced that they need every piece of their digital identity (and every piece of their brand) planned out in advance before they start creating anything at all. Neither approach is necessarily better than the other—the important thing is just figuring out which one works for you!

Don’t be afraid to promote your brand, business, or product!

If you’re going to be an influencer, you have to be a human. You can’t just be a bot who posts about your brand every day and tries to sell people things. Your followers want to know who you are and what makes your life special.

To do that, show them what makes your life special! Share photos of yourself in the kitchen making food or talking about the latest episode of Game Of Thrones (if that’s something you like). Be honest about your brand but don’t be boring. When posting about something that’s part of your business or job, share it with enthusiasm; if someone asks a question about it, answer it honestly but don’t oversell either—if they want more information they’ll ask!

Create your own hashtag.

Have you ever seen a hashtag that had no relevance to the campaign? Or one that was too long, difficult to read, and left you wondering what it could possibly mean? This is not the type of hashtag you want to use.

You’re going to have your own unique way of standing out on social media, so why not create a custom hashtag for your brand? It should be easy to remember and easy to spell. It should be short enough that people can easily type it in their messages or comment. It should be fun. And memorable! You don’t want someone scrolling through their feed and seeing something else when they look at your post! Make sure this is unique as well; otherwise there will be confusion amongst other campaigns using similar hashtags (which may cause users to click on another post without realizing it).

Engage with others if they’re engaging with you!

When you receive a comment on your account, respond! Whether the comment is positive or negative, it’s important to acknowledge the person who took time out of their day to give you their thoughts.

Responding to comments will help build relationships with people who interact with your content and get them excited about continuing the conversation. It can also give you an opportunity to:

  • Build loyalty by answering questions related to what you do (or don’t do) well
  • Address issues head-on before they become bigger problems
  • Inspire followers by taking feedback and suggestions into consideration

Do something unexpected on social media.

What this means is that you need to do something unexpected on social media. That could mean being funny, or it could mean being informative. It could also be anything in between those two extremes (like relatable and inspirational). But whatever it is that you do, it should be unique enough to set you apart from everyone else on social media.

If you want a great example of this, look no further than our friend Taylor Swift! She’s one of the biggest stars in the world right now and she uses her Instagram account creatively while also keeping things authentic:

Post regularly — but don’t overdo it.

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Content is king.” It’s true—the more content you have, the better. But as with everything else in life, moderation is key here.

Posts that are too frequent can be annoying to users and make your page look spammy or desperate for likes — especially if they’re not related to anything going on in your profile picture or cover photo. Posts that are too infrequent can frustrate fans who want to stay up-to-date with what’s going on with their favorite brands and businesses.

In order for your content to be effective in standing out from the crowd, you’ll want to find a balance between posting too often (and being annoying) and posting too rarely (and being invisible).

There are many ways to stand out in social media, and they all require some creativity and time investment.

In today’s digital world, social media is no longer just a place to share information. It can serve as a platform for connecting with others and sharing your story. You can use it to build your brand, promote your business and make money.

As you can see, there are many ways to stand out on social media—and they all require some creativity and time investment!

Conclusion:

Following these tips will help you get on the right track to standing out on social media. Remember that social media is a dynamic environment, and it’s always changing. What works today might not work tomorrow. Be willing to experiment with new strategies, and keep trying until you find what works for you!

AVOID THESE 6 MONEY MISTAKES IN YOUR 30s!

As you get into your 30s, you’ll realize that they’re a crucial decade of your life. You may be past the point where you don’t know what to do but you can still find ways to be proactive with your money.

Here are money mistakes you should learn to avoid in your 30s:

1. NOT HAVING AN EMERGENCY FUND

It is important to have an emergency fund to avoid debt in later life. Ideally, this account should cover three to six months of your essential expenses so you can cover any unexpected events such as losing your job or costly medical issues. It is highly suggested to put your emergency fund in a saving account so you can access it immediately and do not need to worry about a downturn in the markets affecting how much money you have.

2. BEING UNDERINSURED

Most people don’t like to buy insurance because it means paying for something that they hope to never happen/use. However, the consequences of being uninsured are so large that they can wipe you out financially. One accident on the job or medical emergency can change your financial structure just in the blink of an eye.

The types of insurance that are highly recommended are:

– Term life insurance

– Health insurance

– Disability insurance

– Renter’s insurance

3. MAKING MINIMUM PAYMENTS ON HIGH-INTEREST DEBT

If you have high-interest personal loans or credit card debt, it is suggested to pay them down as aggressively as possible before you focus on a low-interest loan or a mortgage. The faster you can pay those high-interest loans off, the more money you can put towards other financial goals that become increasingly important as you progress in your 30s.

4. BUYING TOO MUCH PROPERTY/HOUSE

Home/property ownership is gratifying and can lead to wealth creation. However, it is not guaranteed. You have to make sure that your housing budget includes room for things like unexpected repairs, maintenance, and potential changes to your future income if you start a family.

5. NOT AGGRESSIVELY SAVING FOR RETIREMENT

Retirement can seem far away when you are in your 30s. But every dollar you save for retirement now will be 10 to 20 extra years to accumulate compound interest than money saved in your 40s and 50s. You can set up an IRA (Individual Retirement Account) that will automatically move money from your checking account on payday.

6. SAVING FOR YOUR KIDS BEFORE SAVING FOR YOURSELF

When you become a parent, it is natural to want to put your kids’ needs in front of your own. However, saving for your children’s college education before you save for your own retirement is a terrible mistake. There are many ways to pay for college such as scholarships or applying to less expensive institutions but there is no way to pay for retirement other than saving.

When people enter their thirties, there are typically 20-30 common money mistakes they’re making. However, we’ve narrowed it down to the 6 most important money mistakes that need to be fixed if you want significant financial improvement.

How to Save Money by Organizing Your Life

Organizing your finances will make you better at making spending choices. Organizing your purchases will help you deal with personal debt. Generating wealth is not always about having the most assets or money to spend. Sometimes analyzing your assets and planning for their future use pays off in an unexpected way. A lack of organization can harm your finances as much as being short on cash.

How you are potentially losing money because of disorganization.

Duplicate Items

You may have purchased duplicate items because you can’t find what you need when your need it OR you don’t even know you have it.

Late fees

23% of adults say they pay late fees because they can’t find the bills. How many late fees have you paid in the last year?

Excess Stuff

Just looking around your house, I bet you can see things you no longer use, or in reality, never used. How many hundreds of dollars are represented in your stuff?

Subscriptions

Do you have more than one streaming service subscription? Now, how often do you really use them?

Eating Out

This is an easy way to get food on the table, but it is definitely not the healthiest or the best financial decision.

What you can do starting TODAY

Go on a treasure hunt

Put like items together and see what duplicates are lurking. Visit your storage unit and make a plan to eliminate your dependence on this space.

Become more mindful of your future purchases.

You could even create a 30-day list and see if you still want the item(s) after 30 days. This reduces the spontaneous buying that is so easy to get caught up in.

Create a meal plan

One week I spent $30 on groceries because I already had most of the items at home. If I didn’t have a list or a meal plan, I would have certainly spent more than that!

Take really good care of your stuff

This includes your car, lawnmower, computer, sports equipment, children’s toys, etc. For example, it costs less to replace a spark plug and air filter every year than to buy a lawnmower every 3 years.

If your own peace of mind wasn’t enough to motivate you, maybe knowing there is a direct financial benefit to getting organized will do the trick!

Other financial benefits of organizing your life:

Make money on the items you are willing to sell. Have more time to spend on money-generating activities such as starting your dream business or pursuing a higher-paying job.

Have more time and energy to devote to your own self-care for better emotional and physical health.

More time and energy to explore free and active hobbies such as walking, yoga, library trips, journaling, biking, etc.

You may feel like money is a topic that has nothing to do with your life. However, it’s important to not think this way as personal finance has a huge impact on every aspect of your life. Regardless of your financial situation, whether you’re looking to make more money or trying to save money, it’s worth staying organized. It is crucial that you make financial organization a priority in your life. This will allow you to get a better understanding of the different aspects of your finances, create more wealth, and keep it over time.
