Do you ever feel like you’ve got too much on your plate? Sometimes, we can be so focused on making things more organized, efficient, and productive that we forget to pull the brakes. Do we really need to do all the jobs we’re doing? If you’ve been listening to the last few episodes of the podcast, you’ll notice that I’ve talked about shifting mindsets and changing habits a lot lately. We revealed how you can eliminate your to-do list, and what an organized life feels like. We also uncovered the Sunday Basket 3.0, which isn’t a new product, but a new way of tackling your Sunday Basket when you’re a seasoned pro. Now we’ve reached the fourth episode of this mini four-part series, where I talk about decluttering jobs and obligations. You know, the things that have loomed over our heads for weeks and we really don’t want to do. You might feel like you don’t have a good enough reason to get rid of them, which is why they’ve stuck around for so long. But, I’m here to help you kick the guilt monster out and shut the door on some of those jobs that you just don’t care about anymore. So, if you want to finally declutter those jobs and obligations that have gathered dust at the back of your mind, tune into this episode and find out how to: Take a step back and evaluate your current obligations Identify your unique vs. competent abilities Eliminate tasks from your calendar And the controversial one... How to break away from a direct sales company. I received a question about how to quit direct sales. It was a loaded question, but I could really relate to it because as many of you know, I used to work in direct sales. I loved it at the time. But I reached a point in my life and business where I knew I had to break away from direct sales. Even though you work for a direct sales company, it doesn’t mean you’re obligated to stay until you’re old and gray. You’re a unique person with a unique gift and ability. Don’t sell your soul to any company. You don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors. A company, no matter what size it is, will always put their best interests first. So, you should do the same and put yourself first, too. I talk about all this in more detail in the podcast, but what I will say is that if you think now is the time to leave your direct sales gig, or any job for that matter, you’re probably right. Ask yourself if you were asked to re-join the same company all over again, would you say yes? If not, it’s time to pack your bags and move on. It’s Okay To Say No It’s time to eliminate jobs and obligations from your calendar that you just don’t want to do anymore. Remember – it’s okay to say NO. No can be a complete sentence if you want and need it to be. If you decide to eliminate things from your calendar using any of my suggestions, I’d love to know how it went for you and how many things you managed to eliminate?   Follow me on Instagram to follow our adventures at the Cincinnati Homeschool Convention this weekend!
