5 Mindset Shifts To Make More Time and Money

Oct 13, 2020
 

You know how sometimes when you think something is wrong, someone will say it’s all in your mind? Or when you are trying to do something you find difficult they will say it's mind over matter?

 

The reason for that is that our minds are hugely powerful deciders of how we think and what we do. Sometimes our minds can bring us up and take us to places we only dreamed of reaching. Other times, they fill us with self limiting beliefs and keep us from taking action and moving forward.

 

I want to talk to you now about getting your mind in gear, getting it on board and thinking differently. That’s why today I am sharing

 

The 5 Mindset Shifts You Need to Make Right Now To Make More Time and Money 

 

Shall we jump in?

 

Shift 1

What Makes You Happy Can Make You Money

When you are passionate about what you do, success will come your way

In today's world, having a good idea for a business isn't enough. You have to be passionate about what you do so that you can convey your authenticity to your clients. People are savvy nowadays and there is a lot of on-line chatter. Doing what someone else who is successful is doing may seem like a good idea, but if it's not who you are, it won't bring you the results that you want.

 

If you believe in what you are doing and really know the WHY behind it, then you will be able to communicate effectively, ethically and successfully to the people you want to reach. You will also feel motivated and energised to put the work in because you really CARE about what you are doing.

 

I call this The Secret Sauce That Makes Work Fun and you can read more about it here. By identifying what makes you happy and aligning it with the service or product that you provide, you will reach the correct people with your authenticity and attract success. 

 

Shift 2

Do Less to Get More Done

By concentrating on one project at a time, you will achieve better results

We have all been brought up with the idea that multitasking is the best way to work and that as women, we are particularly qualified for this approach. Makes us feel special, right? I'm afraid that that's fake news. It has been scientifically proven that trying to do more than one thing at a time seriously compromises our ability to complete the tasks safely and well. Equally important, repeatedly switching back and forth from project to project, can impair our ability to function at our finest.

 

Now I am not partial to sports, but I heard a great example explaining why multitasking doesn't work using football, that I would like to share with you. If you focus your team on trying to move 3 balls down the field at the same time, you may succeed in moving each one a few meters. However, if you used all that manpower and focused on moving JUST ONE ball down the field - you could move that ball all the way and achieve a goal or touchdown in a fraction of the time. Make sense?

 

Instead of working on several projects at once and not really progressing with any of them, work on one project at a time and get so much more accomplished with a greater level of quality! 

 

Shift 3

Invest in Laying a Foundation

Start at the beginning and not the end to get results that last

We are often so concerned with the end result, that we skip out on the steps we need to take to get the outcomes we want. It's like building a house, you can't start with the roof! You first have to lay the foundations and build the walls and internal structures. Once you have set the main elements in place, you are ready to work on the roof itself.

 

It's the same with your business. When you take the TIME to INVEST in the groundwork of clarifying your why, setting up systems and delegating non critical work, you are then in an amazing position to make your dreams come true.

 

So instead of rushing to the finish line, take a moment to first lay a strong and solid foundation from where success can grow.

 

Shift 4

Spend Time to Make Time

By setting aside time up front to create systems and flows, you will have much more time to work on your business

If you often hear people going on about productivity and think "I don't have the time to spend on all that stuff!" then I have a news flash for you: Investing time up front to set goals and to plan and develop systems in the short term, will save you HOURS a week in the medium and long term.

 

Creating a framework to manage your tasks is EVERYTHING for the growth of your business. By spending this time, you’ll lose that “running to catch up” feeling, you'll be able to make more of an impact with less stress, you'll have the clarity  to crush your financial and lifestyle goals and most importantly, you'll be able to do it all with PEACE OF MIND.

 

If you can prioritise investing time up front to put systems and operating procedures in place, then not only will you save hours to work meaningfully on your business, but you will reduce stress and increase productivity. Stay tuned because I have a fantastic new course that I am launching in a couple of weeks called Path to Productivity which will take you through a step-by-step low-tech process to set up the systems you need to get AT LEAST 2 hours back every week.

Shift 5

Delegating Makes You Stronger

Focusing your efforts on the tasks you excel at skyrockets your success

When you work for yourself, or have a small team, it's easy to feel like you have to do it all. Do you ever feel like no one else will perform a task as well as you so it's best for you to do it yourself? Or perhaps you might feel that by the time you explain something, you could have done it already?

 

What ends up happening? You spread yourself so thin trying to be everywhere at once that the tasks that only you can do don't get enough attention. You may have a small budget and can't afford a whole team to support you, I get it. But there are always creative ways to DELEGATE some of your work even if you are small. For example, you can hire a VA to do some of your more time consuming but not critical tasks, or tasks you don't like to do, leaving you free to focus on the areas where you SHINE, drive revenue and deliver true value to your clients.  I have a fantastic FREE resource that helps you do just that called 6 Easy Steps to Get More Done in Less Time. Click here to get your FREE worksheet today!

 

To maximise your productivity, it's best to focus on those tasks where you excel so that you can provide the most value to your clients and revenue to your business.  For the rest, start delegating and building a team to do the other tasks (A VA working 2 hours a week is an amazing start!).

 

There you have it - it is all in your head! When you can take the time to make these mental shifts, you will be more productive, more impactful and will start making more money! Are you with me here?
