How To Achieve That Work-Life Balance

(attributed to) Sharon F. Buchalter Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist

Are you looking to achieve that work-life balance?

At the end of every year, holidays bring forth love, laughter, and joy — all of the things we yearn for year long. However, the stress of balancing your career with your life at home can have an adverse effect on your career and personal life. Therefore, it is imperative to achieve and then maintain a work-life balance during the holidays, so neither is compromised.

The pressure associated with attaining a quick completion of all of your tasks at work and home can either make or break your holiday. So, if you too are trying to get done with all of your tasks before the end of 2020 while saving yourself from missing out on anything at home, listed below are a few tips that can enable you to reach the balance you desire.

Work Smart — Not Hard

Instead of wasting endless effort on multiple projects simultaneously, work in parallel. Make a list of what needs to be done now and what can be done later, and then divide your effort and time accordingly. It is important to understand your strengths and weaknesses, which can help you find out which project will take longer and what project could be done sooner, hence helping you diverge importance between different projects efficiently.

Schedule Everything

Plan everything. Create a schedule for business-related tasks, along with everything you have to do at home. Time theming can do wonders; if you know what tasks you need to complete and the time the work needs to be delivered, you’ll achieve the epitome of systemization that will save you from time-consuming confusion.

Automate Everything You Can

Use modern-day technology to your advantage, save time and energy by automating specific tasks instead of doing them yourself, such as employing a marketing platform to market your business for you, for customer services you could install CRM and for internal processes such as sharing files, try out an Enterprise Content Management System. It begins with an automatically generated response and ends with your life getting a whole lot easier.

Diffuse Your Workload

Share your responsibilities, and understand that you cannot do everything on your own. Whether it’s doing laundry or sending an email, learn to delegate at work, and ask for help at home. Two great minds are always smarter than one.

Set Priorities

It is essential to identify what truly matters. Set priorities, and understand that you will have to choose between your career and family at times. For example, your daughter’s first performance in a play is more important than a routine meeting. In contrast, a contract signing should keep you from attending that holiday dinner you can’t bear either way.

Divide Time, Finance, and Energy

Draw a line between the time, money, and effort you need to put into your career and your life at home, and ensure that those two lines don’t merge. Set hours that you need to complete for work and the time you want to be spending at home either with yourself or anyone who matters.

Appreciate Yourself, Learn to Let Go

Life is an eternal work in progress. You may not be able to do everything you want to when you want to do it. Therefore, it is compulsory to appreciate yourself for the work you are getting done and the little things, like finally decorating that unadorned Christmas tree you bought last year.

Don’t forget to relish the moment, enjoy whatever you’re doing, whether it’s at work or home. Learn to let go of things that you haven’t been able to get done even after trying. You matter too, so make sure you exercise, eat well, and maintain your circadian rhythm. The final tip is to believe in yourself, and know that you will get there one day — until then, happy holidays.

Scam!

Are you tired of hearing ‘Scam!’ like me? I sure hope I can help clarify this bullshit haha First, TGIF for those of you (like me) with dreaded “day jobs” (I’m typing this at 11pm because I’m a lunatic and have to get this off my chest before bed).

If you’re an affiliate marketer like myself or even someone that buys ANY type of product, we are inundated everyday with the word “SCAM”. It even sounds like a bad word right? Whoever came up with it, did a good job because it is sort of scary! “Watch out for that scam!” “Don’t fall for that scam!” “Don’t join that, it’s a scam!” I must hear that 5 times a day lately and frankly, I’m tired of it.

The word Scam should only apply if you are getting NO VALUE to something you are buying. As long as advertising has been a thing, there have always been dishonest claims and bait and switch tactics. But these aren’t really scams. You are getting SOMETHING. A Ponzi scheme is a scam because you get NOTHING! If something does fall into that category by all means….scream “scam” until the cows come home (I still don’t know what that saying means….do cows not come home?). If you have been taken advantage of or something….well, that blows, but it’s not a scam.

I started a new series of YouTube videos and I am constantly creating more content. My latest ‘Hot Topiks’ on this subject is below:

I think what’s actually going on is that people need an excuse to validate either their insecurities, their fears or their overall lack of motivation to change their lives. Is it scary?…sure…is it tough to get out of your comfort zone?…damn right…But is it a scam? NOPE!!

That dude in the mirror that looks back at me everyday…he’s the one in charge of my life. Now I don’t want to seem like a dick because I know shit happens beyond our control…albeit family, accidents, health, etc…but I think if we all held ourselves a little more accountable for our actions, there would be a lot fewer people yelling SCAM! every day!

Do you agree or disagree????

How To Make Money From Bed [Live Interview]

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Super Affiliate, Mentor and Friend, Jonas Lindgren. Now the reason for my headline wasn’t to get you to click and open (although I guess it worked, you’re reading this? haha), it was to tease Jonas like I always do.  You see (and I think he does this on purpose to tease me!) most of the times we speak he’s “working” in bed.

Jonas Lindgren is 29 and doesn’t have an office…..matter of fact, he doesn’t own a desk, a computer monitor (ipads don’t count), a filing cabinet, a calculator or (and I’m guessing on this one) a suit!  The only reason he needs a watch is to check his “steps”….

He is living the dream YOU (and I) want and the dream YOU (and I) can have.  He’s been making a full time income online since 2015 and is a certified Super Affiliate.  He’s been successful in many niches, even recently drop shipping, but his “jam” is the make money online niche.   He banks 10-20K on any given month (depending on how many hours of gym workouts, puppy sitting/training and video game “wars” he’s currently waging).

He and his business partner Trevor Carr (another top notch “A-1 guy” and Super Affiliate) have just launched a coaching/mentorship program that I personally joined not only because it’s them…but because it’s easily the steal of the decade (and yes, I know the decade is almost over haha).  I also don’t know how many people they are allowing in the program, so that was my biggest reason not to wait.

Jonas and I go through it all….100% no B.S. and I can’t wait to see where their program takes me.  Perhaps I can have him interview ME from my bed next year 🙂

Don’t Forget Yourself

As marketers, we tend to spend so most of our time trying to appease others (consumers).  Much of our time is spent either searching for something consumers want or trying to understand what they want.  It just hit me the other day, don’t forget yourself!

I’ve been extremely busy since November when I decided to take on affiliate marketing as a serious venture.  My goal is and will continue to be, to get rid of the grueling and stressful “day job”.  In the meantime, I tend to forget myself.  The last actual vacation day I took for myself was almost 1 year ago (my yearly trip to Florida to see my friends who I left 7 years ago).

This Friday I’m taking my first “me day” in a long long time.  I’m driving to Las Vegas (it’s about a 5 hour drive one way) to meet up with my mentors who are from Canada, Indonesia and Sweden respectfully.

On average, they earn $50K+ a month from email and internet marketing.  These are the best of the best and I can’t think of better mentors to have in this journey.  This may sound like a work trip to some, but I assure you it’s a “me day”.  I will be talking to them about my digital product I have created.  I need feedback to make it the best it can be and the next steps to launching this to the public.    There’s a 3-day seminar that other members of my “tribe” are attending, but due to my day job, I can’t make it.  So I’m taking Friday for me.  Investing in me, taking care of what I need to become better.

Some of you reading this will be serious about investing in yourself.  If you are, I encourage you to click >> HERE << and register and listen to this webinar.  If you want to take an opportunity to change your life, this is the “tribe” I belong to and how I’ve come so far so quickly.  I’ve learned more in 4 months than most have learned in 4 years.   I can confidently say I’m slowly becoming an authority in this business and that’s not cocky, it’s true.  I have my 3 mentors and this program to thank for that.  The money will come, the learning is priceless.

So whatever stage you are at in your life, I urge you…….don’t forget yourself!
