I came to a clear decision last week after sharing my last post with you that is affecting how I’m going about everything in my biz going forward. What started as an inkling to want to spiff up the site + add some variety to my posts has turned into much more.
After finishing up the bulk of the work for a one-on-one client, feeling very pleased with what I accomplished but also very over-tired, I realized that working with clients + putting on a workshop in less than a month while I work full-time + keep up with this here blog, was a bit too much.
So, I had to nix something.
And for now it is the workshop.
What I realized was that I had launched out to make all of these big biz plans, but forgot why I am doing this in the first place.
And that is to have a creative outlet that also serves you as my reader.
The truth is, I don’t need to strive to make this into something big right now, since I’m not relying on it to put food on my table. I can just have fun + play with a full heart. And that’s the way I can fully give to you as well.
So while I will continue to offer a way to work with me one-on-one (which I’m finding is a sweet spot for my introverted nature) my passion + intention will be primarily focused on making this the best blog it can be!
I’ve gotten some great feedback on the survey I shared last week and I’ll definitely be doing more How To’s, Tips + Tricks, and Behind The Scenes type posts.
(It’s also on my wishlist to do some of Office Tours once its in the budget to hire profesh photographers for these features.)
I think you’ll really enjoy what I’m dreaming up over here : )
To kick things off I issued an Instagram challenge to myself to share all of the updates I make to my office, as I make them.
If you want to help me stay accountable + get to see the full transformation, then go ahead + connect with me on Instagram.
So what does all of this have to do with focus?
Well, one way we can go about our entrepreneurial lives is to set massve goals way out there in the distance + then meticulously reverse engineer our plans to figure out exactly what we need to do to get there. It’s a very systematic way to go about tings + to achieve your goals, but it kinda sucks the fun out of it in a very real way.
And many times, once we reach these goals, we don’t like where we end up.
The other way is to let go of these artificial intentions (like a snake shedding its skin) and let our spirits guide us. This might seem kinda loopy but in fact, quite the opposite, this is where focus actually comes into play.
You focus on what’s right in front of you in the present. Instead of long term destinations, you focus on building in good habits and routines to refine your skills, your work, + your character.
You might not know where you’ll end up, but you will know who you are becoming.
For me this process starts with sharing my journey to create a blissful office, biz + life by carving out my time, energy, + resources to bring focus to what Blisskeeping is all about.
And who knows what great products, services + other fun stuff will manifest as I lean into this!
I just don’t need to have it all perfectly plotted out right now.
And neither do you. This is why focus is so important and goal-setting doesn’t always work.
Do you agree?
(p.s. – I would love to connect with you on Instagram. I post pretty regularly and always love discovering great new feeds!)
