How to Stay Productive?!
That’s what my coaches and colleagues keep asking – how do I stay on track every day with the goals and objectives I’ve set for my business? As in, how do I keep from wasting time on facebook?
Seriously? How could it be a waste of time if I liked it?
That sounded like a ridiculous question … until I realized that the goals and objectives of my business ARE to waste time on facebook.
At least, if “wasting” time on facebook is a good time to me.
(Which it usually is.)
Because my goals and objectives aren’t the traditional kind.
I’m not out to accomplish world domination, I’m just looking for a good time.
That’s the purpose of my business. That’s the point of my life.
(Although I wouldn’t be surprised if my business did dominate because of my commitment to enjoyment!)
As long as I’m having a good time, there’s no such thing as wasting time.
Yes, I like making money. And I believe that’s best done when I’m having fun. Not by being “productive.” I’m not sacrificing financial abundance by not working hard. In fact, I believe it’s quite the opposite.
After all, it’s about vibrational alignment. Good things happen when you’re feeling good – not when you’re working your ass off. (I know there are some people for whom those things go hand in hand. I’m not one.)
Get this: at Good Vibe U we have a monthly calls devoted strictly to celebrating and giggling. These are not our most highly attended calls. And I personally don’t miss a single one. Because they’re a good time for me, and that’s what I make important.
Not improving myself, or learning something useful, or doing what I think I’m supposed to. Just seeking out the most enjoyment. Isn’t that the point of everything we engage? Because we think it’s going to lead to more happiness?
People who think they’re in business to make money so they can enjoy life may be missing the essential ingredient to getting there: enjoyment.
Unhappy journeys don’t have happy endings.
So facebook (and Maru, and TED, and anything else that sounds fun) – you can count on me for the party!
And having said all that, I AM really excited about a new offering coming to GVU: LOA for Business!
