Getting more done in the same amount of time… 

It’s something everyone wants to know how to do, but not many ever figure out. That’s because it’s about both the INNER and OUTER GAME… not just time management techniques or another calendar hack (though these have their place)!!

Today I’m giving you The Unstoppable Woman Blueprint on how I’ve done this for myself.

Everything you could possibly want to know!! :-)

First, I want to give some context by sharing how I used to be before I learned these skills… 

Really, I had great work ethic, but I was always going in 1,000 different directions at any given time! I had a desire to get all the things done in both my life and my business, but I was constantly interrupting myself.

That looked like… creating pressure to get everything in my business done immediately, everything had the same level of importance. I couldn’t differentiate between the truly “move the needle” actions and the important stuff or even the “nice to have” tasks. 

It also looked like napping (because I was creating all that overwhelm), distracting myself from work with housework (dishes, cooking, laundry, etc), or getting lost in some home improvement project (yes, I repainted every room in the house at different points).

I had a GREAT attitude and really enjoyed doing everything… well, everything but laundry!! ;-)

I was working long hours… which I still do… but it was with a different energy. I felt like I was always behind, dropping the ball, and like I was never able to get it all done. Not so great for one’s self-esteem!

Everything took longer because I did it ALL myself, plus I was a perfectionist and nothing was ever good enough!! I was at the stage where I wouldn’t let anyone else do things for me, I would rather do them myself (stressing myself out in the process) than spend the time to train excellent people and get the support I needed. (Hard to admit this BUT it’s so important to own. I see it all the time too– so many smart, on-it women have a hard time getting help. You think it’s a money thing, at least that’s I hear all the time and what I told myself, but it was really a self-worth issue.)

You’ll always be in growth if you’re going for more in your life, business, relationships, and finances, but you have to remember that attitude is everything. If you asked me, I would have said I had a positive attitude, but I wasn’t being impeccable with my word inside my head and was beating myself up about it, and as a result I didn’t really have a TRUE growth mindset.

When you’re in this ‘grind it out’ place, you have to ask yourself, “What results am I getting? Is this really what I want?” If not, it’s time to make some changes.

How I get more done using INNER GAME approaches:

Creating MORE time is about both the inner and outer game actions… but if you’re not looking at the inner game first, you’re going to continually sabotage the outer game!

Here’s what I did (and continue to do):

  1. I let things go more quickly. That means I don’t stay in a state of frustration. If something goes wrong or a mistake is made with team or projects, I express my waaaaaah quickly, put it in perspective, and then I move into gratitude, problem solving, and delight as quickly as I can.
  2. I still work long hours, but with a different attitude and energy. Building a business or going to the next level in your career takes a certain level of hustle, but that doesn’t mean you have to be in a ‘grind it out’, burnout type of energy. I have a fun and delightful time while I’m working! And if ever I’m not in that state, I make the CHOICE to change my attitude, holding myself to a higher standard. At some point I realized that this is a CHOICE: I can be stressed and overwhelmed or I can have a great time.
  3. I cleared the guilt and shame. I worked through the deeper mindset stuff with a coach, as well as developing my own morning mindset rituals that I now teach in-depth in the Business Acceleration Bootcamp. I had to do these every morning for almost TWO YEARS because I would wake up with anxiety, guilt, shame, frustration, and resentment and I knew it wasn’t conducive to growing my life or business. Mostly though, I started taking new and different actions. I experienced whatever came up and moved through it quickly, choosing to respond in new and different ways.

    I hired a coach who saw my higher truth in situations where I felt like I was wrong, bad, or unlovable. Even though I’d done a TON of personal growth work, this was still my story. So I hired someone to help me see where it showed up so I could move through it more quickly. It’s not that I couldn’t do this on my own. I could. But I wanted to shortcut the time it took. I probably shaved 10 years off of the timeline by doing this. Long story short, if you’re not working on your subconscious programming, you’re going to constantly be driven towards distraction like I was!!
  4. I started valuing myself, my time, and my services. This is about self-worth. I had to do the work to believe in myself and what I had to offer. This meant growing what I spent money on for myself and my business. Yes, I started flying First Class and hiring drivers even before I felt ready to. Yes, I started buying nicer clothes and investing in better self-care- my thing are facials and getting my hair done. :) Yes, I started investing in better computers and systems for my business. AND SO MUCH MORE. It also meant pricing my services accordingly. I upleveled my business to reflect this, creating stronger containers for my clients, becoming a better coach, investing in my own education, and really taking my skills to a master level.

    But it’s not just about money. On the time front, I also spent more time getting dressed in the morning, self-pleasuring, and not rushing to get out the door… not buying into the lie that “I’m behind the eight ball” or running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Again, this came down to conscious choices and choosing to override the subconscious programming and limitations from my childhood that said I always needed to rush. Valuing yourself brings up its own heap of subconscious stuff to work through, which is why I surrounded myself with other women going for more and mentors to help me stay the course and not quit on myself. Everyone I know who’s had a quantum leap and gotten to a higher level has done this too.
  5. I built trust in myself by taking MASSIVE action. We build trust in ourselves through committing to new and different ‘move-the-needle’ actions. This was true for me as well. I got clear on what I wanted and what needed to happen, and I took action QUICKLY. Plus, I stayed with it. If I fell off my game or didn’t do what I said I was going to do, I didn’t beat myself up to the point of quitting, I just got right back at it. #RightBackAtIt

How I get more done using OUTER GAME approaches:

Once you’ve worked through your subconscious programming and double binds, you can start to look at the outer game strategies, actions, and tactics!

Here’s what I did (and continue to do):

  1. I do income producing work early in the day. For me, this means outreach and sales, following up with prospects, or reaching out to potential stages for speaking. You have to know what these actions and tasks are and commit to them. Don’t let yourself off the hook, be impeccable with your word and take those actions quickly.
  2. I hold myself accountable. Early on I came up with a simple and consistent marketing plan, which I printed out and looked over every day. I got an accomplishment hit every time I checked off a box, and this kept me motivated! I liked the feeling of getting things done rather than not… and I was really clear what needed to get done vs what was a ‘nice to have’. That said, I also allowed a certain level of creativity and flow, leaving time for things I enjoyed like playing with graphics and design! But not too much, because I can go down the rabbit hole… and quite frankly, Steph on my team is 1,000x better at this than I am! ;-)

    And remember, you can't do all things yourself if you want to scale. Delegating is key and I continue to do this.
  3. I fundamentally changed my attitude around time. I don’t live in a scarcity mindset anymore. That doesn’t mean certain days aren’t hustle days or that I don’t ‘fall behind’ on the many things my team sends me to review… it means I don’t think about time as ‘not having enough’. I don’t rush or let myself get spun out, at least not the majority of the time, because that slows everything down. You can learn more about this in my training, Mastering Einstein Time So You Can Beat Overwhelm Once and For All!
  4. I hired a great team. That was one of the first things I did, bringing on an assistant and working with designers and developers. These days, I work with Facebook ads experts, copywriters, designers, developers, video teams, photographers, event planners, several assistants, and more… all to ensure I stay in a state of GROWTH without burning out. You can’t do everything yourself. Start with where you’re at and keep going. Remember, your first few hires will suck (and may even cost a lot of money), but don’t stop!! You can’t be afraid if you’ve made a mistake. Try again and keep going until you find the right people.
  5. I mastered certain time management techniques. I scheduled personal appointments like nails or the dentist outside of work hours, which meant I wasn’t constantly disrupting my day running to appointments.. People say they want freedom over their time, but guess what… having your own business means you make choices that reflect your goals. You have to learn to love what you’re doing so that you’re happy to do it and not running away or distracting yourself… like doing laundry in the middle of the day or checking emails at all hours. It’s about understanding and creating boundaries around your time. For me this meant NO disruptions during the day!
  6. I understood my focus capacity. I can go all day, but you have to understand your capacity for focus! That might be working in 90min chunks and breaking for 15min throughout the day. It might be creative business time in the mornings and client work in the afternoon. Understand what works for you and plan accordingly. There’s a whole section on this in the Business Acceleration Bootcamp program… working with sprints, knowing when to focus on ‘move the needle’ actions, how to organize your schedule, client call days vs business implementation days, how to plan for new ideas and unexpected things, etc. But all these things only work if you know what works for you!

How are you going to get more done?

This is what has allowed me to get more done in less time, which one of these techniques are you going to take action on and apply immediately? How are YOU going to take what I’ve shared today to get more done in your life and work? What are your top three takeaways? 

But this is only the tip of the iceberg. :)

If you’re ready to show up for yourself, move through you blocks, and develop YOUR SUCCESS PLAN, it’s time for you to commit to going for more… How?

Thought you’d never ask. :)

Get The Wheels In Motion On Your Big Goals NOW

You’ve got big goals… whether it’s for your life, career, or business.

Now ask yourself….

What do you hold off doing because you don't have the money or don't want to spend the money?

Is it not hiring team or upgrading systems? Is it not investing in the expert or the support you need? (Did someone say, housekeeper???)

Is it not traveling for business or pleasure or not spending money on a new phone? Or maybe it’s not getting that snazzy, sexy new underwear or those hot looking shoes?! 

(I just bought the cutest shoes! Three pairs! Hit reply if you want to see a photo of them and the sexy-hot red crocodile boxes they came in. To die for!)

What if you saw this “saying no to yourself” as a TOLERATION? 

What if you DIDN’T see it as something you can’t afford or an expense… but something you're tolerating in your life… that you’re actually accepting?  

See… one of the enigmas and big truths of life is that we can’t have more until we become more.

Becoming more requires that you ACT from the place you want to be at, not from the place you are right now. 

This means making incremental but significant leaps forward in what you spend money on and how much you spend. It means not accepting your “I can’t afford it” resistance and instead making that incremental purchase that raises who you are being.

This is an act of NOT tolerating the aspects of your life you do not want. It’s the only way to change.

Do it quickly and everything changes quickly.

It’s a mind-bender but it works every time if you then act from this place.

Want More Out Of Life?

It’s a pretty good life you tell yourself. And it is! 

You certainly don’t want to be ungrateful…

Yet deep inside there is something yearning for more. 

It’s your essence. Your purpose. Your full potential… wanting to be expressed.

But it’s stuck, trapped underneath all the ‘shoulds’… beneath all the subconscious programming from your upbringing that got layered over your essence… 

These beliefs tell you how the world ‘should be’… but what if they weren’t correct? 

What if they were just stories that you kept repeating and reliving?

What you had a story about what it meant to be wealthy was inaccurate?

What if you had a story about what it meant to be deserving of what you want that was inaccurate?

And what if these inaccurate stories (beliefs) limited how big you went with your business or your career? What if they determined how hard you worked and what you worked on? Or even what you allowed yourself to dream of and want? 

What if they kept you from your greatness?

They do!

So, how do you break free? How do you step into your truth and stop being trapped by your stories?

You HAVE to look at your results (sales, income, impact, relationships, weight, etc). 

Your results don’t lie. They tell you exactly what you’re choosing to believe about the world, yourself, and others.

Based on the results that you’re getting, can you identify what story you’re telling about yourself, the world, or others?

Here’s an income example…

If you’re not making the income you want, you may have a story that it’s hard to make money or you have to sell your soul to have a successful business or that it needs to take a long time or that women are bad at business, etc.

There are so many possible stories that could lead to limited income. What are yours?

And what story do you tell yourself that is holding you back from your greatness?

Commitment Is No Matter What, I’m Doing This

Last year I did something I was really super proud of, which was completing my first marathon!!

It was hard. The training was hard… the marathon itself was hard… but the growth I experienced in the process of doing it was amazing.

And guess what? Not sure, but I think I finished last. I think it took me about seven hours.

I'd always wanted to be a runner, but I would start running and stop, start running and stop, start running and stop. I would quit on myself all the time. I’d never really conquered the demon that is running before.

So this time… I signed up for a marathon, announced it to the world, and made it clear (to myself and others) that it was going to happen. I still ‘wasn't a runner’, so I had to figure out a way to make to happen for myself… and I did! I found a particular interval training method and ran/walked for SEVEN HOURS!

I realized very early on that if I set an expectation of myself that’s large, I will really go for it, but then there's also a risk of disappointing myself. 

You know… DISAPPOINTMENT. The big D. ;-) It holds us back from so much.

You think… “Maybe I’m not going to make it. Maybe I won't be able to. Maybe I’ll fail.” And then you stop. 

So what I had to do was commit to the training, commit to doing it anyway, despite the fear of disappointment. And when I committed, I figured out a way to make it work and I did it. (So proud of myself despite my slow times!)

See… if you're afraid of disappointment, you still can’t let that hold you back. You must claim your goals and commit to them despite the fear of disappointing yourself.

In fact, drum roll please… commitment is the antidote to disappointment!!

Because the solution to how to achieve what you want comes after you COMMIT.

Because you find the answers after you COMMIT.

Because you will do the work and absolutely surprise yourself with your own determination and capacity once you COMMIT.

But so often, we only sort of, kind of commit. We bail on ourselves. We get distracted. We fog out. This is what leads to disappointment. But guess what? This ISN’T commitment.

Commitment is no matter what, come hell or high water I’m doing this.

Want to build your commitment muscle? I’m happy to show you how to do this.

Join us for the 30-Day Commitment Challenge. You’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish.

The Truth About ‘Ease’ vs ‘Easy’ (A MUST READ)

By Amira Alvarez Do you want it to be easy, or do you want a great f’ing life? If you want a great life, you have to understand the difference between ‘ease’ vs ‘easy’. Easy happens when we master a skill. Something that was once a challenge for us is now easy. Think…

Do you want it to be easy, or do you want a great f’ing life?

If you want a great life, you have to understand the difference between ‘ease’ vs ‘easy’.

Easy happens when we master a skill. Something that was once a challenge for us is now easy. Think about learning to swim or ride a bicycle. At one point it was hard, yet eventually, it became second-nature, something you didn’t have to think about anymore… easy peasy!! ;-)

This is true of making sales calls, showing up on a Facebook live, speaking on stages, speaking up to your boss, commanding a meeting or room, etc. These will become easy over time, the more you do them and get comfortable.

EASE, on the other hand, is… a state of mind… a way of being… WHILE we’re doing the work to build something of substance (whether that’s a business, a career, a relationship, or a huge increase in our bank account).

We’re pushing our edges, learning new skills, working hard to create what we want, but we’re shifting our ATTITUDE in how we approach it. 

  • We choose to feel delight during the day-to-day of business and life.
  • We work hard, but we let go of the ‘grind it out’ mentality that leads to burnout.
  • We experience challenges, but we navigate them with humor rather than frustration.
  • We remove the tension by taking actions quickly and with less ‘noise’ or story.

Challenge and hard work are where we grow, but we can choose to have an attitude of ease… to make simple shifts in our mindset and way of being… that lead to more EASE and more GROWTH.

How will you choose to create more ease in your life and work? What’s one shift in your attitude that you can make today?

The Power To MAKE Time

So much of the angst we experience at the end of the day when we look at what we actually accomplished… comes down to TIME. Where did the day go?

So much of the frustration we experience at the end of the month when we look at our sales numbers and how much revenue we created… comes down to TIME. Where did the month go?

Now, you only have 24 hours in the day (just like everyone else), so what gives? 

How do some people maximize their time and seem to get boatloads done every day? And not just boatloads of “stuff”, but the quality work that truly skyrockets their business?   

HINT: If you want to SCALE and GROW, you need to have NINJA time-warping skills. ;-)

And it’s not what you think. 80% is inner game, not some fancy time management system.

You must become a ninja at mastering your energy and attitude and valuing yourself, your work, and your time. Do this and you’ll be able to execute like a rockstar… and warp time. 

The result? Better days, better months, and a better bank account balance! Woot!

I’d love to go deep with you and teach you how to do this.

Because the truth is, you have the power to MAKE time work for you. And you have the power to earn as much money as you want. Let me show you how!
