Using your natural flow
The other day on Facebook a friend updated her status and wrote about how she only seemed to be able to write her newsletter at night.
I commented and said something like, “at least you’re using your flow”.
Which brings me to the point of this post.
When you’re in the flow, see how long you can go if at all possible.
Let me give you an example that happened to me just last week.
I schedule my time throughout the week so that I focus on different tasks on different days.
On this particular day I was scheduled to write a blog post.
I wrote that one post but felt that things were flowing so beautifully that I extended the time to write another two posts.
All that in just under an hour.
So here’s the thing – no, the time wasn’t scheduled for the extra posts but I was in my natural flow.
It is purposeful time management to use the flow so that ultimately I get the tasks done quicker and much, much easier.
My question for you – think about things you do regularly.
Are there certain times of the day they feel easier? Could you incorporate this task into your weekly plan to capitalise on the flow?
P.S. My flow happened after I’d got back from the gym so maybe all that exercise was good for my writing muscles
