Every week I sit down and review my goals and priorities with a blank calendar. Health and my morning routine are my first priorities so if goes in the calendar first. Then my family, daily enjoyment/fun, and then my my most important income generating tasks. I used to allow work to come first, worked 70+ hours, now? I work about 25-30 hours and I’m on pace to double my income from last year. There is a better way.

This is awesome! I read something at the start of the pandemic about how you can only juggle so many balls, and it’s up to you to decide which ones are glass and you cannot drop… and which ones are rubber and will bounce if you drop them. For me, my glass ones are my mental and physical health, and my kids. Those are my priority. One of the rubber balls is my job. I’ve kept this in my head for 2 years, and it has worked amazingly for me to prioritize my life. Sometimes work falls to the wayside. But guess what?! I ALSO got a new job during this pandemic that is less work, less stress, and almost double the pay. I see now that prioritizing myself gets me EVERYWHERE, and prioritizing work gets me nothing but more stress.

Love this perspective! What do you feel contributed most to being able to prioritize your needs AND double your salary?

For me when I started taking care of myself better my energy was better, I was happier, and more creative.

I looked for more opportunities outside of my job because in my job I focused on only the things that directly related to results. I eliminated about 25% of the hours and redirected them to my business.

Then as I began to feel and look better I became more confident and I was confident there was something other than work for 45 years and then get to have fun.
