As fitness professionals and entrepreneurs, No matter how hard we work, it seems like there is never enough time or energy (mostly energy) to get all the important work tasks done.

And if you’re blesses with kids, this is even more apparent.

As ambitious entrepreneurs we tend to just increase our hours and work longer and longer.

What we really need to do is work smarter not harder.

Goals should specify which tasks are to be completed and a time frame for completing them.
Organize Your Work Day. Develop a consistent daily work schedule – and stick to it!
These days I protect my time like I protect my daughter.

If a typical workday consists of some writing tasks (emails, reports), staff meetings, and training, set aside specific times each day to accomplish each category of tasks.

Consistent schedule ensures that each category of work gets completed, and makes it less likely that tasks will be overlooked.

Delegate Effectively. Learn which tasks can be delegated and which need personal attention.
The business owner who tries to do everything himself or herself not only is overloaded and overstressed, but is doing a disservice to his staff, by not allowing them to be challenged and grow by taking on important duties.

Don’t make work harder than it actually is.

Much time pressure is self-induced.

We set unrealistically high goals or standards for ourselves and feel like we should be doing more.

Remember that tasks get completed in a step-by-step fashion.

It’s no different that what you ask your clients to do.

Focusing on each step, rather than on the entire project, may cut down on feelings that we are “overwhelmed.”

Sounds familiar ha? Isn’t that what we tell our clients?

Your boy Sam,
