Each Monday in this post you can list out the goals or tasks you want to accomplish during the week, then on Friday we’ll check in to see how we all did.
The hope is that by holding each other accountable we can be more productive and continue to effectively grow together!
I will post mine in a subsequent comment and I encourage everyone to do the same!
I have an ambitious week this week, but I’m gonna hustle my butt to get it done!
- 2 EBT work sessions
- 2 weekly emails to list
- 1 new post
- shoot 3 recipes
- revise my ebook to sell
- create landing page and sales copy for ebook
- call w/ my tech people
- 8 pins
I’m curious - what is everyones work flow for being efficient and cranking out so much content. I’m very impressed with you all.
Here’s my week at a glance:
- 2 updated posts
- 1 new post
- client work
- email form
- weekly newsletter with meal plan
- daily IG reels
- pick up interest (10 live pins daily?)
@Anya - I don’t think I’m as efficient as Megan or Jenna, but some of the things I’ve done to become more efficient:
- give up the tasks that don’t bring me a good ROI (mostly social media)
- close my email tabs and only check them at specific times of the day
- plan my week out using the tasks I put in this thread
- do the big tasks first off in the day, when I have more focus and energy
- create an accountability group with blogger friends where we have content goals and we have to put money in a kitty if we don’t meet the goals we’ve set for ourselves
@Anya here are some of my favorite efficiency tips…
- The EBT focus/productivity calls have been HUGE for me for things like creating Pinterest pins (which don’t light me up). I get so much done on these calls.
- Batching is my best friend. I do podcast batching days, content updating days and Pinterest pin creation/scheduling days.
- When I’m feeling scattered, or not as productive as I’d like to be, I do time logging and I’m constantly refining how I spend my time.
- I prioritize self care, down time and family time and doing this makes me more balanced and therefore productive when I do sit down to work.
- Like Taryn, I try to check off the biggest or least desirable tasks right away to start the day. The earlier the better!
@Anya I do a lot of the same things Taryn and Megan do. Here are some other tips that have helped me, especially recently:
Understanding what my goals are and placing priority on tasks that help get me closer to accomplishing that goal.
At the beginning of the week, making a to-do list for each day. (I include everything, even personal stuff like laundry)
Automating and scheduling what I can (email welcome series + weekly emails, facebook posts, etc.)
Also, I have a reusable block in wordpress so each blog post is generally structured the same way. It’s freed up a ton of mental space and allows me to write more quickly!
It’s Friday! Let’s check in and see how we did with our goals. Here are mine:
2 EBT work sessions
2 weekly emails to list
1 new post
shoot 3 recipes
revise my ebook to sell
call w/ my tech people
I did create a landing page for my ebook but didn’t get to the sales copy yet. And I need to work on my pins today.
@megan @jennaurben and @Anya - how did you all do?
Here are mine! Got most things done, woo!
