We might not consider ourselves experts, but we’ve learned a lot about sustaining success around the Alliance Concepts office. Keeping things basic is one of the most powerful strategies we’ve discovered along the way. We’ve achieved the right balance in our careers by slowing down and staying organised. Above all, the key for us is simplifying.
Setting priorities might be the most important part of our keep-it-simple approach. We separate tasks into those we need to get done, those we should complete, and those we really want to do. Once we have this basic grouping in place, it’s much easier to check things off our to-do lists and feel good about the progress we’re making.
Turning down a request here and there is another key aspect of staying focused from one busy workday to the next. This goes for both our Alliance Concepts office and our personal goals. There may not be enough time for a given pursuit, or we might just not have enough mental energy to get something done. It’s better to say no than risk mediocre results spread across too many tasks.
We’ve also learned to seek out constancy wherever possible. For some, this might mean setting aside windows of time throughout the day for checking email. For others, it could mean deciding on a specific set of outfits to wear every week. Whatever takes mental stress out of our daily lives, we’re all for doing.
These are just a few of the tactics we employ to stay on the simple path to success. Follow Alliance Concepts on Facebook to see more of our best advice.
