My №1 Tip for Getting Things Done that I Want to Do — and Need to Do

Our brains aren’t reliable.

I say this to my clients all the time.

If you want to do something, don’t trust your brain to get you there. It’s job is to protect you and it’s wrong a lot of the time.

Instead, you need to create guideposts to keep yourself on track.

As as a busy coach and CEO of my business and a mom of twins, I rely on one strategy to make sure I am doing what I need to do and what I want to do.

Over 10 years, I have written a book, written countless blog posts and coaching workbooks, held hundreds of workshops, retreats and webinars — and I still read, meditate and do yoga daily.

My Secret?

Setting very clear boundaries.

Boundaries are simply the guideposts that keep you in your lane and on your path. Without boundaries you are likely to chase shiny objects or overgive to others, neglecting yourself.

In her book, Boundary Boss, Author Terri Cole talks about 5 Types of Boundaries we need as human beings: physical, sexual, material, mental, and emotional.

I work with my clients on Bolder Boundaries around these areas to help you do what you want to do.

Here are 3 Ways to Set Boundaries for Yourself This Week:

You want more time for writing: Set a boundary with yourself that your sacred hours are the first thing you do each day.

You want more energy for connecting: Set a boundary to unplug at least one hour each day.

You want more money for travel and fun: Set a boundary to cut out take out for the next month.

What do you want more of this month? And what boundary do you need to set for yourself?
