This is my Day 2 of my first 90 days as a Solopreneur.
There is so much to do and I know how easily distracted I can be. Suddenly I have this illusion of having plenty of time on my hands but I know that being busy and being productive are two different things.
In order to stay grounded and tune into my intuition I start my days with writing “Morning Pages”, this is a technique described in Julia’s Cameron book “The Artist’s Way”
“Morning pages” are a form of meditation. In the morning the moment you woke up before you start communicating with the world, you take a notebook and write whatever comes to your mind, however silly it may seem. Before I started practising it I resisted the process for the whole week. Sometimes it sounds like “My dear diary…” type of writing but very often creative solutions come to me. This process allows me to switch to my intuition.
The day when I found out that I am leaving my job started very unusually. First of all, I saw a dream that I’d spent the whole day with Anthony Robbins, when I woke up the phrase that came to me mind was “You are meant to play bigger”. That morning in my “Morning Pages” I was writing:
” … saw Tony Robbins in my dream, we were helping various people. That felt so good. This is something what I want to do – helping people finding their calling in life, creating different Social Media campaigns so they are happy about their business and life successes. It would be so great if could leave my job by 30th June. It would be fantastic. I would be so happy and I would dance my happy dance. Wait, I can be happy now, I can dance the happy dance now; I can imagine and feel these emotions now. I will let reality to catch up…“
Later in the afternoon, I found out that I can leave my work as soon as I wish and on my terms. 30th June was my last working day in the company.
So, I highly recommend the book by Julia Cameron “The Artist Way”.
I’ve also noticed that whatever I do in the morning gets done. That’s I’ve scheduled working on my e-book the first thing in the morning.
In May I was running my online course “Facebook Made Easy”, now I am putting all the material together into an ebook.
For somebody who all her childhood was told that she didn’t have artistic skills, it’s a double effort to work on creative projects. Anyhow, I’ve done my first chapter and I am happy to present it here. No opt-in required, just click on the document.
