Space Sanity Strategies for
Overwhelmed Work at Home MOMpreneurs
Are you a MOMpreneur who is running ragged because of your out of control office?
Do you struggle to manage every piece of your life and juggle the details of several people in your family?
Are there days when you just wish things were a little easier?
Is the place you call “Executive Headquarters” organized, restorative and reliable?
If not, let’s take a look at a fresh perspective.
Getting more productive is a process.
Launching a new business, or even a new program is a process.
Creating business systems to support a life that works is a process.
Clarity is achieved by focusing on five key sanity dimensions:
- the spaces you inhabit,
- the systems you develop to create efficiency in your business,
- the support you have,
- your own self habits and skills
- and how you use the time you have
The Sanity Dimensions™ are the areas that with clarity will help you fix root problems, and move forward to create amazing results in your life and in your business.
It’s all about SPACE
Your space is literally the place from where you conduct your business. Where is your ‘Executive Headquarters’? Where do you actually work? Do you have a physical location? Is your business run from your automobile? Or perhaps you have a different type of mobile office – like the local Starbucks! Regardless of where it is, it’s important that the space best suites your needs and your work style. Some people work much better in a busy location, while others need complete silence and isolation to complete their genius work. Regardless, your SPACE should be comprised of everything you need to do the work you are wishing to do. Think of your space as a command center, or the control panel of an airplane. All the tools, gauges and items necessary for you to successfully do your job should be within arms reach, or be easily found or accessible when you need them. Do you struggle with your space? Take a quick Space assessment by clicking this link and see how healthy your spaces are.
Our spaces hold memories, emotions and vibrations, and when you are in locations where you feel cluttered, stuck and overwhelmed… you’ll BE stuck and overwhelmed. Taking a picture, removing yourself from the space, and looking at it from a different view is sometimes all you need to get your creative juices moving again to consider what is possible for the space, and how it might best serve your needs.
Think of the space you call your “Executive Headquarters” and ask yourself the following questions:
- What is the main purpose of this space?
- Does the space have a single or multiple purpose?
- Can it easily transition from one purpose to another?
- What types of results need to happen here?
- Does the space currently function well?
- What is your “intention” or “vision” for the space?
- What is missing now that would make the space better serve your purpose?
