Most procrastinating business owners fundamentally want the same things.
You want to feel like you’re either on or off; not like you’re half-working or half-relaxing.
To agree with yourself about what you should be doing in any given moment; not feel a sense of constant internal conflict.
To end the week feeling damn proud of yourself and all that you created; not feel disappointed by not meeting your own expectations—again.
To be fully present and engaged with your friends and family; not have your mind constantly drift back to your to-do list all evening and weekend.
To genuinely enjoy the process of creation; not just the final product.
To both appreciate what you already have and create more—from gratitude and joy; not from a perceived deficit or brokenness.
It’s possible, with a Monday Hour One practice.
A Monday Hour One practice consists of just 5 simple steps, done on repeat week-over-week:
- Write the results that you want to create by the end of the week
- Write down every task that you’ll do to create those results
- Choose how much time to give each task
- Put each task on your calendar
- Follow through on your calendar, watching your thoughts
Done repeatedly, these 5 simple steps are the entry way to creating more connection, joy, and purpose with your work, every day.
When you read these 5 steps, you’ll want to ask a ton of questions. You might even feel a sense of panic or urgency. You’ll wonder things like:
But how do I choose what to prioritize?
How do I strike the balance between over-planning and under-planning?
How the heck am I supposed to know how long things take?
What do I do about totally unexpected interruptions?
But what should I do when inspiration strikes but it’s not in my calendar?
Can I even do this if I have a history of not following through on my calendar?
How do I get back on track when I fall off my plan?
Every question you have is both totally normal and totally solvable. I’ve helped hundreds of business owners through the exact same hesitations.
