Life before Covid was not just busy, but frankly it was too busy - almost to the point where most of the time we were running at a frenetic pace that left us exhausted and stressed.
And now after 5+ months of our “new normal” – a quarantine, safer-at-home orders, school closures, work transitions and many activities canceled or rescheduled we now have a new relationship with our time – one that is not anchored in the busy-ness of a schedule or routine but one that is forcing us to make the most of the pockets of time we do have.
Personally, the lack of routine presents a new challenge for us. And the lack of boundaries between work life, home life and now school life as we help manage virtual school makes it even harder to stay focused, productive and efficient.
We know some of you can relate to being trapped in this vortex where time feels both extremely sluggish and like it’s slipping through your fingers at the same time.
So how can we all make...
System: a set of things working together as parts of a mechanism or interconnecting network; a set of principles or procedures according to which something is done.
Let’s face it – the last few weeks of studio ownership have been all about pivoting to a virtual model, servicing our existing clients and working hard to maintain our businesses.
For most of us we haven’t had much time to work ON our businesses and create systems around how we do things.
Stop the press because NOW is the time to take a good hard look at what’s working and what’s not. If you felt like your business ran you instead of the you running your business BEFORE the pandemic then things are about to get even more messy as we start to re-enter our studios.
So what systems are absolute MUSTs?
