Today’s time management challenge comes from a close friend of mine.  I love her dearly – and can really feel her pain when we talk about this.  Maybe you can relate also?

Real Life Scenario #5 – “I’m working hard to use my time better and make progress towards my goals, but it’s sort of a lonely process, and I think it would be more inspiring if I had people encouraging me and noticing the small successes.”

Just yesterday I had a very successful entrepreneur say to me, “Oh my goodness – just talking that out with you was so helpful.  I think I fell into that trap that many of my clients fall into.  When working in isolation, I have no one to bounce ideas off of – and I lost my way for a moment.”

It can be a lonely process working towards our goals.  My advice – partner up to power up!

Find a supportive environment!

  • a power partner,
  • a group with common goals,
  • a community with a common focus.

(For suggestions on supportive people, please visit this previous post!)

Why do it alone?

When you bring just one other person with you on your journey  –

  • You become so much stronger.
  • Someone else is there to offer encouragement.
  •  To provide some external motivation when you just “don’t want to do it”.
  •  To celebrate all the successes (big and small) along the way.

Be sure to stop back as I tackle Real Life Scenario #6 – “I have a great idea, but I don’t know where to start, and the project is floundering. I will probably give it up and just keep on with my regular routine.”

Your turn!  Who is in your cheering section?  Where do you find support?  Please share!
