She has, for over 20 years, enjoyed a diverse career in media and marketing, working with some of the world’s most recognizable brands and thought leaders throughout her corporate career as an entrepreneur. Heather and Alicia will be talking about time management and how to be the CEO of your life.
The biggest thing in approaching time management is looking at your priorities
Alicia gives tips and advice for people struggling with balance and time management while talking about how she sets up her own day as an example. She says that the biggest thing in approaching time management is looking at your priorities and really understanding what is the most important for you.
She makes sure to outline the three things she wants to get done today that will actually make a difference in her business and move things forward. And then making sure at the end of the day that you circle back to those things and set them up for the next day.
A Lot of founders get stuck in the details that don’t matter instead of focusing on the big picture
Alicia says that you must hold yourself accountable for work boundaries especially when you’re so easily accessible to your co-workers. This needs to be done in order for you to focus and get your goals done.
It’s very important that you know when to set time for yourself, Alicia says, “In order to replenish your soul and your creative spirit, you must practice self-care and self-love.”
She thinks that a lot of founders get stuck in the details that don’t matter instead of focusing on the big picture. Alicia calls herself a recovering perfectionist because she immediately learned that being one is not going to allow her to scale and create the impact that she wanted.
Alicia has always been a big believer in taking risks. However, you need to be able to take a step back and start to recognize those signs where you’re feeling overwhelmed. If you can learn from self-awareness, reflection, and understanding and start to feel and know what to look for, that would help because you can get ahead of it and fix it in the situation.
