This week has been a huge win for me on the productivity front. I’ve been feeling super blocked so I’m trying to #reclaimmytime by unsubscribing from emails that don’t really serve the buckets I’m creating. It’s helping me feel more focused. I’ve also realized that I have to be careful what I’m reading right now. There is so much great content out there but I don’t want to get stuck in the crazy all-this-stuff-is-awesome-what-do-I-have-to-offer cycle. So I’m trying to be aware of those moments.
Also, I am realizing that I want to help women who have a day job that they may like, but still feel this pull to pursue something on the side like writing or speaking or creating an online business to serve a larger purpose and make an impact. I’m noodling on this some more as I focus on getting clearer on who my client really is.
In other news, I wrote another blog post (!!) and did my first couple Instagram stories this week (you following me over there?
) when I went to visit the Amazon Books in Chicago. I did a story about a bookstore. Get it?
😂 How’s that for experimentation? They probably are not super amazing but it was fun doing them and I think people like them. I will try to do more in the future instead of just doing photos.
I’m off to enjoy this nice long weekend to celebrate Labor Day in the States. Hope you have a great one!
On to the picks for the week!
P.S. Embrace your awesomeness.
