What’s your Better Normal going to be?
I’ve been talking a lot about what I’m calling the “better normal”… how to use this time well so that that your life and business is better on the other side of it.
In my business, one of the ways I’m doing that is to further firm up some boundaries, both to protect my mental and emotional energy and to further simplify my biz and my life as a result.
For example, right now, our kids are back to in-person school, but I know that may change any day – and on a day-to-day basis.
In order for me to be as flexible as possible around that as well as to lessen my own stress about being available at moment’s notice, I’ve designed my scheduled for this entire school year so that I’m only booked for two hours one day a week.
Funny, this is how I ran my business for years when the kids were small – in fact, it used to be only once a month – but I loosened up that schedule as they grew up and needed me much less, and especially the last few years when they’ve been at school most days from 8-5.
Only booking for a couple of hours one day a week enables me to be as flexible as needed during this time.
It’s also given me back time to work ON my business more, which I’ll talk about in another post.
What changes have you made or are you making in your business right now so it allows you more flexibility and less stress?
