Yes! I know it’s only October, and no special date is in sight, but I feel like I’m starting afresh.
Yesterday, I wrote a farewell letter as I am no longer sending out Dutch newsletters. This is a big step for me.
Ever since I started my business, I have been communicating in Dutch and English. Quite time-consuming and taking away quite a bit of joy too.
Since I teach people how to stop time-wasters, it seemed odd to continue sending out a Dutch newsletter.
But the thought of, “What will they think of me?”, “I might lose many subscribers”, and it only is like 1 hour a week, kept me from stopping.
Only 1 hour a week is still half a day a month. A day I would rather spend coaching you, for example. More enjoyable, and to be honest, more lucrative too.
Killing your darlings
That’s precisely what I did. I stopped. I didn’t wait until the end of the year. I just wrote all my Dutch subscribers they would receive my English letter from now on. Welcome y’all!
Sometimes, small decisions have a major impact. And even though it cost me “only” 1 hour, it still took precious time.
How can you save 1 hour a week?
So let me inspire you:
• Where can you cut back in time this week?
• What have you been doing, even though you don’t see merits (straight away)?
• What do you undertake, because that is “the way you do things”?
• What doesn’t spark your joy anymore?
• What do your clients don’t actually need, and are giving them anyway?
Remember, it is good to try new things. And it is just as good to stop things when the benefits aren’t there anymore.
Stopping isn’t always quitting – sometimes it simply means focus and therefore, growth.
P.S. If you want to know what would bring you extra hours each month, I’d love to have a clarity call with you.
