Life Productivity Hacks for Busy Podcasters, Entrepreneurs and Other Creatives
While we all have the same 24 hours in a day, being able to use time effectively is a real challenge for many people—especially for podcasters. With the demands of work and personal life—not to mention digital distractions from phones, texting, social media, and more, it’s no wonder we’re so stressed out! It’s hard enough to start a podcast, but staying the course for the long haul can be a real challenge for many. Having the tools to stay consistent will help creators keep going so they don’t become a #podfade statistic. This talk will provide quick, actionable tips to help time-starved podcasters and other content creators find more calm, less stress so you can get back to your creative work more energized and a renewed purpose to follow through with goals and projects! Some subpoints include: A. Identifying your zone of genius / not so zone of genius (Do more of what you’re great at—you’re all podcasters so obviously do more of that, delegate all the things you’re not great at and don’t want to be doing—like accounting, bookkeeping, etc.) B. Energy and rhythms—managing energy, tracking, etc. (How to develop an awareness of your time) C. Setting time boundaries, no tech zones / times so one can focus exclusively on projects D. A Model Calendar Approach (with samples time blocks and alternate A/B week options; Perry Marshall’s time value on tasks from book 80/20 Sales & Marketing)
