HOW TO TACKLE TEDIOUS TASKS!

Hi There! Happy Monday!

Today I want to give you a few pointers on how to tackle your tideous tasks on your to-do list!

I want to start off by saying that these tasks that I am speaking of are most likely the ones you keep pushing to your to-do list for the following day! You know what I’m talking about…

Stop doing that! I’m not going to lie I caught myself doing it last week so since then I have been knocking them out one by one.

Here are a few tips for getting these annoying little projects done fast and efficiently! By annoying I mean updating your Mailchimp subscriber pop-ups, all of your podcast url’s and graphics, new graphics and stories for your new Instagram Spotlights, following up with three different support teams for your podcast, researching effective new hashtags etc. Oh wait! Those are mine! LOL

Well now you get the point…

I’m happy to report as of right now all of those projects are complete! Chickety check!!! Feel so good…

TIPS FOR TACKLING YOUR TEDIOUS TO-DO LIST

  1. Music. You must have some. Whatever you are into just put it on and turn it up nice and loud!
  2. Highlighting System. Some like this, some don’t. I love it! I use a different highlighter for each project, meeting, clients, doctor appointment etc. I have my own little system set up and you should do the same. However you prefer to cross things off your list. Just make sure it is happening.
  3. Hold yourself accountable! I sometimes put my to-do list on my Instagram Stories. This way I am able to post everything checked off right there again at the end of the day! Accountability people! It works!
  4. Schedule your creative and operational projects on different days. Example: It is very hard for my brain to switch from design mode to crunching numbers and analytic mode. Therefore, I try my hardest to schedule everything on opposite days so I don’t have issues throughout the week.
  5. Make a “celebration” list for the end of the week. I’ve been doing this for a while and it works! It puts a smile on my face and gives me that extra reassurance that I am on track and where I want to be!
  6. Shit happens! We all know that we cannot have a perfect work day every dam day! So celebrate the small stuff and keep on doing you! Self-Care is number one in my book. And it should be in yours. Trust me on this. You will be a hell of a lot more productive when you have a clear head and vision.

That’s all for tonight! Let me know how you tackle your lists in the comments below. Sharing is Caring.

FINDING CLARITY IN 2018!

Happy Tuesday Friends!

Let me start off by saying how sorry and truly annoyed I am. I had every intention of writing my blog post yesterday. However, something got a hold of me. A little piece of the flu? NMO symptoms? Chemo side affects? A mixture of all three? Not sure, but it’s been happening for almost two weeks now (on and off) so I am really over it to be honest with you.

I know the flu is going around (again) and I’ve already been sick with that for three weeks so I am praying it’s not returning. I didn’t even have the strength to finish my Work Boards yesterday afternoon. By that I mean put thumbtacks into my cork boards. So sad. I know! I just had zero energy or strength so just had to clock the hell out and rest. Now if you know me at all then you know it is very hard for me to “rest” but I did have to do just that.

OK! Enough of my bitching…

The good news is that I was able to finish my boards this morning. Feel free to check them out on my Instagram Stories for a little looksie 🙂 You can find me @kkinvegas here!

Anyway…I hope that your 2018 is off to a fantastic start. I would love to know what you are working on so please comment below and fill a girl in…

I have had a lot of positive changes happen in my life over the last few months so I am here tonight to give you the 411!

First and most importantly (on a personal note) I received wonderful news that I no longer need to receive Chemo every month. I am now a twice a year patient. Although my treatments will be for the rest of my life I am still praying that there will be a cure for my NMO one day soon. Fingers crossed…

When I received that Chemo update the Wednesday before Thanksgiving I started writing a list of all the projects I wanted to launch in 2018. Projects that I knew I could complete and have and give 100% energy for. I’m not going to miss having crazy side affects every month that’s for sure! All they did was hold me back and hang a huge question mark over my life.

No mas my friends. No mas!

I needed to find some serious clarity in my life for 2018. What are my goals that I want to accomplish? What types of clients do I want to attract and work with? Where do I want to be featured? How can I use my skills to the best of my ability? How can I grow as a person and business owner? Who should I be aligned with personally and professionally? Where do I want to travel to?

These are just some of the questions that I ask myself. I write them down in my notebook with an answer below. I always date my pages too! It’s a great tip for when you want to look back to see how far you’ve come on your journey. I also add little notes onto my Work Boards (some call them Vison Boards) to keep me truly focused when I see them throughout the day.

Don’t get me wrong I love a good vision board but right now I was feeling pulled towards words and really wanting to align myself with the work and goals in front of me. I’m focusing hard on my work and the tasks, goals, projects that I want to accomplish and the people I want to connect with!

What’s on my Work Boards? I have mantras and quotes. Hand written. Little keep sake items that remind me of special times in my life and items that I’ve cut out of magazines. I also have fortunes I’ve collected through the years from restaurants.

No pics. All words. Again, getting the complete clarity of what it is I want 2018 to bring to me. 

My 2018 is all about less is more!

I am happy to say that over the last few weeks I have been in full force creation mode. Creating coaching programs, podcasts and shows for anyone in business to enjoy! Content that will help others learn and grow from. Online or in person…
