We are well into 2016!

As you seek out to grow your business or personal brand, you can overcome any challenge by finding the time and focus you need to ensure your passion projects reach their fullest potential. Fitting time into your busy schedule is tough! There are so many influences trying to determine how you spend your time, and few of those are pushing to achieve your personal or small business goals. Family, work, friends, the media, are all vying for your attention and taking away your focus from your goals.

As you seek out to grow your business or personal brand, you can overcome any challenge of finding time or focus to ensure your passion projects reach its fullest potential. Fitting time in to your busy schedule is tough! There are so many influences trying to determine how you spend your time, and few of those are pushing to achieve your personal or small business goals. Family, work, friends, the media, are all vying for your attention and taking away your focus from your goals.

So how can you ensure that even when you feel like you are having a time shortage you can respectfully fit in your craft?

Here are some simple ways to find the time for your passion projects:

  1. Set up SMART goals. This business model of goal-setting ensures that you can work on the goals that matter in a way that works.
  2. Tie your goals to your priorities, values, and feelings. Staying motivated is an internal activity and we speak to ourselves through our emotions. Find intangible links to your goals that you can recall when you feel yourself straying.
  3. Use if-then statements. This is a great mental trigger to practice saying to help you keep cognizant of when you may be sinking yourself into a time-waster (e.g. re-binging on Orange is the New Black), creating and practicing these if-then statements will help snap you back into what you should be focusing on.

Find time for your passion projects means making time. Creating a system where it is easy for you to take small actions towards achieving your vision is necessary to take the right step.
