I am so great at Designing with a Deadline. But one of the most important parts of the process I created is FOCUS. And no interruptions. So I may LOOK busy, and I am. But by staying focused on the task at hand and not accepting interruptions in my scheduled design time or planning time, I am able to achieve so much more than when interruptions are allowed.
I am busy, but focused, and that leaves much more time for self care and family time! Try blocking out your calendar for the week to accomplish all of your goals and you will be amazed at how you aren’t just busy, but effective.
