Happy new week!
What are your goals for this week? Did you break them into smaller tasks that you can easily accomplish? As my contribution to your efforts, I have put together the following affirmations to help you have a productive week. Enjoy!
1. Focus is the new cool
I focus on the job at hand and only multitask if the works are related. E.g. I read while getting my pedicure done but I don’t read while responding to business mails. Here is how to multitask effectively and still maintain high productivity.
2. Out of sight is out of mind
I don’t take office work to my home because I like to concentrate on domestic issues when I’m at home. A strategy I adopt to make this decision work for me is that I do as much as I can in the office and always end the work day with an almost clear desk.
3. Out of sight is not out of mind
I don’t forget that I am a woman with high expectations from the society. So wherever I am, seen or not seen, I do my best to be the best and not a disappointment to those who believe in me. I spend my time on productive activities.
4. Break time is off time
I take my break at its assigned time whether I work remotely or in an office. I know that break time helps me renew my focus on the work at hand. So, when it’s time for a break, I take time off work and try to do nothing for the duration.
5. I take breakfast
I take my breakfast daily at the right time because I know it is the most important meal of the day which gives me the energy to do all that I need to do for that day. It also keeps me healthy and mentally alert.
6. I have to-do!
I have a to-do list which I prepare every morning or the night before to keep me on top of my daily activities. My list is simple and flexible so I can adjust it if the need arises. Keeping my list simple also allows me to complete my tasks easily.
7. I love me
I take good care of myself because I know that selfcare is good for my wellbeing. I eat good food, workout, sleep well and smile often. I also enjoy the good things of life at my disposal.
8. I support women
I know that when women support women big things happen so I support women with the things I know or have at my disposal. I also lend my helping hands because I know that what goes around comes around and as such helping hands will also be stretched towards me when I am in need.
9. I jot!
When I get new ideas, I write them down either in my phone notepad or handy notebook. I jot because I am aware that some of these ideas are gold if I implement them.
10. Collaboration is bae
Girl bosses collaborate not compete. This I know as a fact which is why I am always open for opportunities to get things done with my fellow girl bosses. I am also aware that collaboration is a mutually beneficial event that can help me achieve big results with little effort.
I hope the above affirmations help you improve on productivity and work-life balance this week and beyond. xo
