Day 5: Natalie Sisson’s 10-Day Blog Challenge

If you don’t know what this challenge is about, or why I’m writing these posts … click here to check out the first post!

Today’s Challenge: Come up with a daily success plan that will only take about 15-20 minutes to achieve and schedule the time in the day to squeeze it in. Write about what you will do, when you’ll do it, and how it will get you closer to your dreams.

Since we’re currently on our Freedom Journey (HUGE update about this in this week’s solo episode by the way), our schedule changes from day to day.

Through no one’s fault but my own, progress in building the Living Unconventionally brand has basically come to a halt since we hit the road. It’s such a struggle to just maintain the podcast and social media I currently have, that I haven’t really done much else.

So, this post will be for when we temporarily settle down and I can get a little more routine back in my day (or, really, my life in general).

Bryan will most likely go back to working full-time when we settle down so the most productive time for me will be during those same hours since he’ll be gone.

After giving myself a little time to wake-up, I plan to write down a list for the day of what needs to be accomplished and group similar tasks together. Using the Pomodoro Technique, I’ll complete the similar tasks and work my way down the list.

Certain tasks that will be included every work day (Mon-Fri):

Respond to emails and social media comments at both the beginning and end of the work day

At least one hour working on updating/changing my format to the new layout until it is complete

At least one hour researching/contacting future podcast guests

Edit one episode of the podcast

Write/plan for at least an hour for the online course I’ll be launching

Write for at least 30 minutes for the e-book/lead magnet

Spend 30 minutes researching/preparing content to share on social media accounts

Complete next module in Start Your Own Coaching Practice program

I will also have weekly tasks:

Mondays: Complete next module in the Mastermind I’m in

Tuesdays: Schedule social media posts for the next week (will be at least one week ahead)

Wednesdays: Record/edit/upload that week’s solo podcast episode

Thursdays and Fridays will vary based on that week and the projects I am working on

Being focused and organized will help to keep me on track and not be distracted throughout the day and in general. Accomplishing new things each day will help keep the momentum going and make me want to keep that feeling of accomplishment.
