How to Work Less Without Sacrificing Success

Posted by Erin Aquin on Apr 30, 2021 4:38:57 PM

On Monday I had a moment that stopped me in my tracks.

I was hanging out with my kids and realized that in 4 months I will be sending them both to school.

We have been under lockdown full time since February 2020 and while it's been a rollercoaster, the bond of our little family is strong and beautiful.

So the realization that soon they would be off on their next adventure gave me pause.

Even though I consider myself to have a much more harmonious schedule than the average entrepreneur, I still work more than I want to on things in my business that I am not entirely sure are essential.

Don't get me wrong, I have developed some serious entrepreneurial superpowers (and I will teach you all of them inside the Love + Success Group Coaching Program)

For instance I know how to:

  • get more done in 45 minutes than most people do in an entire afternoon
  • create authentic relationships with my potential clients long before we ever meet on a consultation
  • run experiments, roll with failures (I call them "wins in disguise), never sh*t talk myself and keep going until I hit my goals
BUT I am far from perfect.

I don't always strive to get my work done efficiently if I know I have an 8 hour day to stretch it out over.

I don't always put my phone and computer away at the end of the workday.

I don't always feel 100% present with my family if I know there is a loose end to tie up from the week.

So I have decided to do things a little differently for the next month.

In May, I am going to cut my working hours down to 25 hours per week MAX.

And I am going to share the details with you on Instagram here and weekly on this blog.

My goal is to cultivate an even clearer intention and loving discipline with my work time and be more present and energized with my family.

But truth be told, while it feels vulnerable to share this process and know that you are going to see me struggling to reach my personal next level around Love + Success, it's important to me that you see what it really takes to do this work deeply.

I know you are here because you want Love + Success so I am going to take you "backstage" in my life and business so you can see how it works in real time with all the ups and downs.
