Career Coaching: The Default Diary.

Today I got let down. Today, my fourth client of five didn’t show up. In the past, has the fourth client of five not shown up, I’d have been fuming….  Today, quite frankly, I was delighted. Today, I had 90 minutes back to myself. That meant I could get some strategic work done.
If you’ve ever run a business and started a parallel business up alongside, then you’ll know what I mean when I say the phrase “time-poor’

Career Coaching: The Default Diary.

The solution to time-poor is the default diary. It’s divi-ing the week up, rigorously, into the strands that need attention. Confining my client-facing time to defined periods, It’s useful (essential) to gift time to the other bits…  The marketing strategy, the brand, the finances, the content creation, the admin, for TWO businesses, all need to fit in. Alongside the rewrite of the book…. Anf that’s before motherhood, life and me (I’m sure I AM in there somewhere)
So, imagine my utter delight when a client cancels, I still get paid (my cancellation policy is clear), AND I have 90 minutes unexpectedly to devote to designing my membership. Love it!
.
Go on, get a default diary: set your priorities, divi up your time accordingly – this makes you sustainable. Then you can be truly delighted when someone lets you down? And you are gifted unexpected time. Thanks, Adam – this is a very sound strategy that has just about saved my sanity over the insane last 6 months.
