Schedule In Advance

It’s difficult generating content. I understand – I do it for myself and my customers on a regular basis. But once it’s produced, you have got to get it in front of them.

I recognise numerous individuals who produce content in sort of a “simply in time” way. They paintings on time limits that either creep up on them, or come rushing at them like a freight train. I may be like that, too. Especially when a customer wishes the content published straight away.

But I’ve observed a better manner. A lot of my content is now produced in advance. Some instances it’s only some days, once in a while it is months in advance, but those are the extremes. I usually try and have whatever I’m running on – whether it’s writing, video, audio, or images – achieved far enough beforehand of time that I can make tweaks if I ought to. Between 2 and four weeks.

It’s genuinely one in all the largest demanding situations I actually have with a number of my customers. There’s continually something that receives inside the way of them generating their content. Hey, as I stated it takes place to me, too.

I want to inspire you, like I do with my clients, to begin working on longer manufacturing schedules. As long as you are the one controlling the guide time table, you could start pushing some of your content material off a chunk. Even if it is only a few days, permit yourself wait to “push the button.” Unless you are developing something it is either time-sensitive – like a film review or touch upon a news item – try and produce it earlier and permit it relaxation.

The first aspect to begin you at the direction is a listing. Write out the entirety you understand you will need to provide as a long way earlier as you could. If you very own a retail store, you know while your largest sale days are next year. Go beforehand, listing out the advertisements you will need to make for those dates. Making this listing can even alleviate at the least a number of that “oncoming teach” feeling!

Once you have got the list, you should realize the date on which the occasion desires to arise. If you are setting a chunk in a person else’s media, there is probably a submission date. For example, in case you need to put in writing an article in your local each day paper on the way to appear on July 4th, the very modern you may want it there may be June 27th – per week prior to book. Some lead instances are absolutely months earlier!

Now, start running on the piece it’s needed soonest. Maybe you need a blog publish for subsequent week. Sit down and write it! You might need a video clip for subsequent month. Shoot it nowadays! The greater time in advance you could produce content material, the higher off you’re because the submission date attracts near. You have time to revise your piece, if wanted. Polish it. Re-write, re-shoot, re-edit, re-paintings. But give yourself a “due date” it really is lots earlier than the ebook date.

Once you get that piece done, begin on the next.

How to Practice Radical Self-Care

The last two weeks have been a trying time for me. Following the death of George Floyd, I was numb for days. I could not feel yet I was upset. About a week later, the dam completely burst for me. It led to a pouring out of emotions mixed with truth in several areas of my life. The fact is I had to rethink my approach to established relationships and connections.  I am aware of my blackness daily yet my blackness became more tender and palpable than I have ever felt it before. 

“Radical self-care” was a term that I had only heard just weeks before and, now, I know why. I would have to apply it for myself.  It was a GirlTrek interview with Angela Davis and Nikki Giovanni and T. Morgan Dixon asked Angela Davis about the practice of radical self-care. I researched this expression and found that Audre Lorde coined this phrase. Here is the full quote:

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”

–Audre Lorde

I thought this message hit home when I found it but, after the events, on May 25, there was a whole new meaning for me. I am black. I am a woman. The intersection of these two identities hit home too. (Check out my podcast episode on intersectionality.)  Knowing that, inherently, there is a double bias, how do I take care of myself? I still have to show up as a Life Coach, a support to others. I still have to make positive impact in the lives of others, how do I do this? The answer is to implement this practice of self care on a radical level.  

I am working this out daily but here is what I have thus far…

  1. Speak my Truth: I did another post about this and since then I have had to up level my role as a Purveyor of Truth (Listen to my speech as a Purveyor of Truth).
  2. Commit to Your Empowerment: Figure out how you need to get your fuel at this time. Is it a 21 day meditation with a group? Possibly a book? Maybe even intentional meetings with other like minded people to build each other up.
  3. Sweat it out: The visual effects of exercise on our bodies may be obvious however the effects on the inside are that endorphins are released in your body and this makes you feel good and it also keeps you focused and alert. For me, this helps.

So, in this time of great shifting for many of us, Black Leading Ladies, how will you practice “Radical Self-Care”?
