Kako da savladate svoju nemotivisanost

Kako da savladate svoju nemotivisanost

“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”
Wayne Dyer

Nekim danima jendostavno ste od ranog jutra super motivisani. Sve vam ide lako, bez muke i velikog napora. Laganim koracima koračate kroz dan. Ništa vam ne pada teško.

Uh, obožavam takve dane, a vi?

Mada, ima i onih dana kada stvari ne stoje baš tako. Bezvoljni ste, a puno je toga pred vama što treba obaviti. Čini vam se kao da vam je na putu postavljen veliki broj prepreka, a na nogama nosite olovo. Svaki korak je usporen, nekad ga je gotovo nemoguće napraviti.

S obzitm da je i meni taj osećaj vrlo poznat, poseglma sam za pronalaženjem načina kako to prevazići. Postala sam u međuvremenu pasionirani gledalac i slušalac videa Brajana Trejsija koji me svaki put iznova oduševi svojim metodama i pozivom na akciju, jer bez akcije nema napretka.

Neke od metoda koje sam isprobala i koje i sama primenjujem kada zapadnem u dane i periode slabe motivisanosti, verovatno mogu pomoći i vama.

# 1 Ne čakajte da se motivacija pojavi i pozove vas na kafu

Probajte da u svakom danu uradite barem nešto koliko god vam to bilo teško. To može biti i odlažak u kratku šetnju od 10-ak minuta koja će vam razbistriti misli, kratko vežbanje joge od 15-ak minuta, slušanje nekog podkasta ili gledanje videa koji vas inspiriše. Ako danas niste baš zadovoljni kako vam protiče dan na poslu, napravite plan za naredni dan ili dva. Ali realan plan. Mali koraci svakog dana čini da se konstantno krećete, i imate osećaj da radite nešto korisno.

# 2 Razlažite sve na delove i njima gradite celinu

Kada zadam sebi neki cilj koji mi se čini ogroman, često sebe zapital da li ću imati dovoljno vremena, snage, energije, znanja, iskustva da ga savladam. Ili, da li uopšte da se upuštam u sve to. Ali, kada ga izdelim na komadiće, projekat podelim da delove, rasporedim po zadacima i danima, sve izgleda drugačije. Koliko god da je na početku izgledao nesavladiv, sada deluje potpuno suprotno.

# 3 Smanjite delovanje ometača fokusa

Analizirajte jedan svoj dan i zapišite šta vam je nepotrebno dugo odvlačilo pažnju, a da pri tome neke važnije stvari niste stigli da završite. Probajte da neke od tih stvari redukujete ili ih potpuno ukinete. Jedna od mojih izazova je bila potreba da sam stalno u toku šta se dešava na Facebooku. To sam rešila tako što sam čekiranje notifikacija i svog news feeda ograničila na 5-10 minuta jednom ujutru i jednom uveče. U danima kada ne radim, to čekiranje radim češće, ali se trudim da ne preterujem.

# 4 Ne ljutite se na sebe kada vam ne ide

Shvatila sam da je potpuno ok, kada mi nije dan. Kada sam bezvoljna i bez elana. Nekada sam se ljutila na sebe, jer mi nije bilo jasno zašto je juče bilo onako, a sada je ovako. Šta se to desilo, pa je došlo do te promene. Ali, prestala sam da se to pitam. Svaki dan je jedinstvena priča i nije vredno da gubim energiju na samoprekor.

# 5 Podsećajte sebe na svrhu onoga što radite

Kada imate manjak motivacije da nešto uradite, uvek se možete vratiti da svrhu i suštinu zašto to radimo. Ako imamo jasne odgovore na to koja je svrha ovoga što radim i zašto to radim, vrlo brzo se vraćamo na pravi kolisek. Svoje odgovore na ova pitanja možete zapisati na stikerima i zalepiti ih na neko vidno mesto kako bi vas podsetili i “ohrabrili” kada bude bilo potrebno.

Metoda koja je postala deo moje svakodnevice bez obzita da li sam motivisana ili ne je metoda zahvalnosti na svemu što imam i što mi se dešava. Ona je bez premca, pa nema svoj redni broj u ovom tekstu.

Imate li vi neku metodu da mi predložite? Šta vas pokreće kada izostane motivisanosti i elana? OVDE

What it means to front load the hard work early on in your business

What it means to front load the hard work early on in your business

 

Let’s define what it means to front-load the hard work early on in your business. Front loading is simply researching and planning your business from the beginning so you can ensure that you have a profitable business.

You need a business that is thoughtfully planned out, so you need to know where to expand your financial resources and your energy.

 

A business that is properly planned out will be kilometers or miles ahead of its competitors.

When we decide to want to create a virtual assistant business, most of us:

  • Come up with the idea to become a VA
  • Write out a list of services
  • Determine the prices of services
  • Build social media profiles
  • Create a website
  • Start promotion.

The right way to start your virtual assistant business is these 3 key steps:

  1. do the service planning,
  2. the target market research and then
  3. the business front loading planning.

Let we see what you’ve learned so far and need to work on:

  • Constricting down your core services
  • Interview/research your target audience

The next step is to create a business plan.

Your target market research will take you weeks. If it takes you a short amount of time, you’re not dedicating enough time to this critical phase of your business building.

You need lots of information from online research to interviews and a notebook full of information so you can analyze the data. The information and data that will come out of your target market research will be a powerful resource for you.

You will be able to see with ease that you need to create services (and later packages) based on your core services to help them with those problems.

Once you’ve done all that front-loading, you’re ready to compile it into your business game plan.

Here’s what is also important to write you down:

Who is your target market?

What are your core services?

Where is your target audience hanging out online/offline?

What marketing strategies will you employ to get in front of your target audience?

How much will you charge for your services?

Will you offer packages, retainer plans, or pay-by-the-hour services?

What are your standard business operation policies?

What you will do, what you will not do, and the costs?

How do you bill for work completed?

How you track your time?

Bonus information for you are:

  • that the most successful places to network and market are on Facebook and LinkedIn
  • if you outsource part of the work to someone else, like another virtual assistant – describe how that works.

Write down your plan for all of the above and add more.

Write everything down in your business plan and this way if you get distracted, you’ll always know what you need to come back to because you’ve done the research, you’ve laid out the plan and you’re able to easily come back to it.

Trust your instincts and your hard work.

You put in a lot of hours of research to get this information so trust the system and trust yourself.

More importantly, don’t over-complicate things. We sometimes tend to make things harder than they need to be.

This business game plan is just a plan between you and no one else. This isn’t a document for clients and the content will and should change over time and that’s perfectly okay.

You need to update your on-going plan because nothing is set in stone. Everything needs modulation as you move forward.
