The Difference Between Being Busy and Productive

Now I totally get the feeling when you feel like you have been working on your goal non-stop for so long and you aren’t getting anywhere. There isn’t enough time in the day to do even more work, so why isn’t the needle moving? Before we get into this, I want you to know that it is such a common feeling and you shouldn’t feel like you are the only one. But I have come to the realisation that busy and productive are too completely different things. Maybe, instead of being productive you are just simply being busy. A lot of people glorify being busy but instead of this, we need to work smarter which makes us more productive. So what is the difference?

Why Self-Development is Important When you Start on Your Goals

We all have goals that we want to achieve and they take a lot of hard work in order for us to attain our idea of success. But why do so many of us give up, seem to be chasing these dreams forever or don’t even get started? It’s because many don’t realise that we first have to work on ourselves. Personal development should be the number one priority before you try to achieve anything because our mindset is the main ingredient in the recipe to success. You need to get your mindset right before you can successfully work towards those goals.

Why It Has Taken You So Long To Get Started On Your Goal

I know we have all had that feeling when we think to ourselves, “Why didn’t I do this sooner, I would be so much further forward if I had”. Now I can tell you straight away that you should not focus on this, forget what you have or haven’t achieved and think about what you can do now in order to build you future. And anyway, a lot of the time when we tell ourselves this, we still don’t begin to achieve our goals. So if we can figure out why it took you so long to get started, then you can see how you can think differently now and actually get started

Sacrifices I Have Had To Make for My Goals

The reason that not everyone can hit their goals is because many people are not willing to make the sacrifices that are needed in order to work towards them. If hitting our goals was easy, we all would have done it by now. The reality is that when you have a big goal in front of you, you are going to have to say no to things. If you take it seriously you have to actively work towards it every day. If you goal is not your number one priority then your time is going to be taken up by something else, not the work you need to do.

Imposter Syndrome (Why It's Ok and How To Move Past It)

Today I wanted to share my thoughts on imposter syndrome. I have heard a lot of people discussing this lately and it looks like it is a common theme among entrepeneurs and women just trying to develop themselves. If you don’t know, Imposter Syndrome is that feeling when you feel like you aren’t good enough, like you aren’t qualified enough to help people. Jodie Foster once said, “‘When I won the Oscar, I thought it was a fluke. I thought everybody would find out, and they’d take it back.”. This shows that even when we are recognised for our achievements we can feel like a mistake has been made or we are not worthy. Even celebrities!

Why You Need to Reward Yourself (Even For The Little Things)

We are the first ones to beat ourselves up if we make a mistake. Even a tiny mistake. But what do we do when we hit our little wins? Well sometimes, we beat ourselves up still because maybe we didn’t think the win was good enough and we should have achieved more, but at the very most, we just move forward onto the next stepping stone towards our goal. We don’t allow ourselves to feel good about this little victory before heading onto the next. I think it is about time that we reward ourselves for even the smallest things, here is why.
