Posts Tagged ‘Being Productive’


Today was a typical day for me. I spent most of the day in the office.  I was reminded today as I worked how whenever I go to a training workshop or to a networking group, my friends & colleagues always comment on my productivity.  I get comments like:

  • ‘How are you so productive?’
  • ‘How do you fit so much into your day?’
  • ‘How do you balance it all’

Most say they find it inspiring, some say they get tired just seeing everything I produce.

Let me tell you that I am not only a small business owner but I am also a mom of two young boys, one with special needs and my life is very busy just driving to schools, camps & therapy sessions.

However just today I managed to create the following:

  • I  bought a new domain name (market your wisdom.com)
  • I designed a new website (check it out I am very proud of it http:www.MarketYourWisdom.com),
  • I wrote & created the Ad copy for a new workshop I have coming up in Aug – A Two Day Dynamic Marketing Workshop Click Here to Find Out More
  • I created a new subscription  form for my new website,
  • I created the follow-up Thank Your Page,
  • I wrote an article entitled Five Free Marketing Tools To Increase Your On-line Presence! (I will be sending it out soon to subscribers)
  • I created and sent an E-Newsletter inviting people to my training,
  • I booked a room for my event & handled travel details for another training,
  • I updated my YouTube Channel,
  • I checked my social media,
  • I answered important emails,
  • I chatted with my friends,
  • I also cooked dinner, did the laundry, walked the dog, cleaned the kitchen, played with my son, took some on-line training, did an hour of Zumba at the gym –  oh and wrote this blog.  And all in a regular day.

And no I wasn’t warping time with a futuristic time machine or taking some strange energy enhancing drug, I didn’t even have a cup of coffee.  However I was being conscious about how I spent my energy and on where I put my focus. I also communicated with my Angels throughout the day letting them help me line up energy.

Over 12 years ago I had a very successful company in Ireland SMPG Training & Consultancy. One of my most popular products was a  training and coaching program I ran for executives & business teams on how to increase  personal effectiveness &  manage time.

So years later I still apply the strategies I taught so many years ago, and these are the very tools that help me be so productive.

  • The key is being in the moment, being conscious,
  • Being very clear on what you wish to focus upon,
  • Getting very clear on your priorities,
  • Allowing the energy to line up for all the projects you wish to create and complete,
  • Learning to maintaining your energy levels,
  • Nurturing yourself when you feel your energy is waning rather then pushing yourself into the ground to complete a task. I frequently take breaks- chat to a beloved friend or family member, do a few yoga poses, sit in my garden or walk my dog. All these allow me to stay balanced and keep my energy high.

I hope you found this helpful.  I have found these strategies have been crucial in my success and even more importantly my overall happiness and balance in life.

Wishing you love & light in your day

Siobhan & the Angels
