I have a problem managing my work load: I can’t multi-task like most successful people seem to do. I am a one-track minded gal. Like for most entrepreneurs and small biz owners, I have plates spinning in the air all the time, and juggling is required.
If it were up to me, the plates would have splattered already. My partner Denise is great at juggling.
Do you experience this when writing for your business? Got any tips for helping me out here?
For example, today I’m preparing a presentation that The Blog Squad is giving up in LA at the Publishers Association. If only I could shut down email, ignore
clients and just study and practice the presentation.
And there is a new product that we need to get out; I need to write
the product description and compose the landing page. Not a problem; I
can wait until the presentation is over tonight.
There is a news release to be done. There is another presentation to prepare for next week with Dr. Larina Kase, there is a new article to be written for Customized Newsletters, our Blog Squad white paper needs a rewrite, and there is the script to prepare for the Blogging and Beyond radio show tomorrow.
I have this idea that the really successful writers are the ones
that can shift gears and write on different projects at the same time.
The thing is, I need ruminating time. I need to think about each
project with plenty of "mind time" in between. That’s how my best ideas
come to me – in the empty spaces in between projects.
If I’m multi-tasking and working too fast, there’s no time to think. What about you?
