How to Stay On Track When You Want to Give Up

Sometimes in business, we have immense clarity - we know exactly what we are doing and we forge ahead...and other times, we sit at our desks staring blankly and wondering where to begin and wanting to give up - there is so much to do!

In my Business Coaching practice, I encourage these 10 tips to help keep you on track and moving forward:

  1. Have a clear plan. A plan for social media posts, a plan for when you will work on what, a plan for marketing, a plan for creative time away from your desk, a plan for onboarding, a plan for gratitude etc.
  2. Put one thing on your desk (to-do) list at one time. Shut down all distractions (that's right, no Facebook or Clubhouse) until it is done! Then put it away.
  3. Stay hydrated, eat well, and exercise. You won't work well if your body isn't.
  4. Get an outside opinion. We stare at our work so much that we miss things that are obvious to others. Get an accountability partner (lots of amazing coaches in this group), hire a business coach (shameless plug for me:), ask a few friends to review your website and offer feedback, and lastly, step away from your work and come back to it the next day.
  5. Stop comparing yourself to others. There will always be people ahead of you and always people behind you. YOU are exactly where you need to be right now!
  6. Stop listening to what your brain is telling you...you know what that brain does, right? I am not good enough, I don't have enough training, who will listen to me??? All just thoughts that may not be true! Start telling yourself what your best friend would tell you! YOU ARE AMAZING...KEEP GOING!
  7. Take a break. One hour, one day, a few days away...you deserve it. This is not easy and finding peace is a necessary step to the business-building process.
  8. Surround yourself with like-minded, amazing coaches that just want to support and lift you up! (another shameless plug for the Parent Coach Club! www.parentcoach.club/join For $37 a month, you get so much!
  9. When you feel like giving up, call me! We all feel this way many times each week if not daily! www.calendly.com/parentguide If you just want to talk it out and discover what is holding you back, keeping you stuck, or making you want to quit, let's talk!
  10. I don't really have a #10....but only 9 ideas seemed wrong, so I will remind you of one thing...all of this - the success, the failure, the pivot, the adjustment...it is all in your hands. You have the power to do whatever you want to do in life...So, tell me your big vision. Share it in our Private Facebook Group here and imagine this happening for you this year! I will be envisioning this for you too!
XOXO Jennifer
