Ep.83 – How to keep working when you feel like you‘re wading through treacle

Being in business can suck some weeks. There is too much to do, not enough time to do it, and you’re exhausted from the constant trudge of it all.


If this sounds like you, you’re going to love this episode.


It’s full to the brim with practical tips for working through your never-ending to-do list, even if you’re smack bang in the middle of an energy slump. And no, it doesn’t involve having a holiday and coming back to it all later. Sometimes, we need to push through.


By the end of this episode, you’ll have an action plan for how you can navigate your next low energy week, without losing momentum in your business.


We’ll go from wading through treacle to gliding through honey!


I’ll discuss:

  • how energy levels are not linear – they move in cycles and seasons
  • how to stop multitasking and focus on fewer things
  • how getting more clarity on your workload can help you get started on big projects
  • how to map out the jobs that have been sitting on your to-do list for months
  • how to stay motivated and keep making progress, even when your energy levels are low
  • how to spot drains on your emotional, physical and social energy (and avoid them!)
  • how to get back some precious headspace so you can devote it to what’s important
  • and how to bring this all together in a handy cheat sheet you can refer back to when the next energy slump hits.
