Going With The FlowBy
There are some days when you need to push yourself, have some discipline and get things done, and then, there are some days when you just have to go with the flow.
Yesterday was one of those days for me… I was on vacation at the end of last week, so took a few days off, and had a lot to get done, so figured I’d put in a few hours on Sunday.
When Sunday rolled around, I was tired (vacation was great, but there was more play and not as much rest :- ) ), and just needed to rest and unplug for the day. So, because it was Sunday, and I knew I could push a bit harder today and still accomplish what I need to, I gave myself the time.
I went with the flow – and it was a spectacular day. A long walk in the park, a few football games on TV where I watched and read (or watched and napped – so yummy!), and this morning, I was up early and ready to go.
The big question then becomes, how do you determine when to have the discipline and get things done, even if you don’t completely feel like it, and when to give yourself the break and just go with the flow?
Only you can really answer that for yourself…
But, for me, it has to do with deadlines, how much time I really have, how strong my need is for a little down time – after all, if I’m really tired my work won’t be great anyway, so sometimes the very best thing you can do is take a break, give yourself some R & R, and come back fresh.
What about you? How do you know when it’s time for discipline and when it’s time to go with the flow?
P.S. – If you are ready to have some ‘discipline’ around your marketing and you want it to get easier for you and really start having an impact (e.g. bringing in more clients and income), then you’ll want to check out my free webinar coming up this week – you can find out more about it and register here.
