What happens when everything gets to be a little too much?
Girl, I see you: you’re making it happen like you never thought you would. You’ve got goals and you’re meeting them. You’ve got eight “now” clients on the go. Your kids are doing great at school and cheerleading, and football, and dance, and hockey. Your clients love you because you always know just what to do or say and you’re always available. Your planner is full and yet, you’re still able to make time for yoga. You’ve nailed it; you are the #LadyBoss.
And yet, I know that sometimes that voice creeps in. It does for all of us. Sometimes, you want to just slow down and be you. You like the times when you get to just make dinner with your family milling around you. You enjoy talking with the other parents from the sidelines or in the stands. Tickle fights on the couch after homework light you up in the happiest way imaginable. You know that there will be a day when you don’t get to do story time in bed with your kids as they grow, but right now, today, you’re going to appreciate that incredible moment each night just before bed.
Your clients have to know that you care…
When your phone buzzes to let you know that you have a new email, the battle between what you do and who YOU are sets in and let’s be honest, getting that email dealt with usually wins. It’s important. Your clients have to know that you care, and your sights are firmly set on crushing it, and you are. You know what it takes to be the best in an ultra-competitive field and you will not allow anyone to beat you at it. But when the realization that everyone has gotten up from the dinner table, or that the game is over, or that the time for a tickle fight on the couch has passed because the kids are in bed, or that your kids no longer need you to read their bedtime stories to them hits… ooh boy; it hurts.
How do you do both? How do you keep on top of the life and the goals that you have set for yourself, without letting the important stuff pass you by?
- Use your email’s autoresponder to let inbound emailers know when they can expect to hear from you. By creating an expectation, your clients and prospects will generally feel satisfied to wait until the time that you’ve said that you’re available.
- Set appointments in your calendar for you time. If you book an appointment with a client, that is where your focus is. New emails and different pulls don’t drag you away from your client if you’ve booked an appointment for your them. By the same token, if you “book” yourself to have a night or a morning for you and the things that are important to you, telling clients that you’re booked becomes an empowering experience that will give you a feeling of freedom to enjoy your family or your you time without that pull to jump every time your phone goes off.
