It’s time to banish the thought that you have to do certain tasks at certain times, or in certain ways. Or first thing in the morning. (Or last thing at night, while doing yoga drinking cold press whatever-that-is while smiling at the ceiling.)
Sometimes I work well in batches. Sometimes the “tick this off once a week” (or once a day) type approach helps. Just as our lives are not static, our systems don’t have to be set in stone either. They need to exist, but they can change with you.
It’s the internet, so here the disclaimer for the “but what about” devils advocate group: yes, there will always be exceptions to the rule that you can do things at any time and in your way. Taxes are an example I use often as they’re fairly universal with immovable deadlines. I’m not referring to exceptions in this post, I’m talking about 99% of the time running your own business.
It matters less if you decide you’re a morning person or a night person, or a batch tasker vs a few tasks a day person …. it matters that you try thing and find what suits you, not what suits the latest thought leader and their life.
