Time management for introverts: a different approach

Better time management is the holy grail of productivity.

Or so I thought…

All through college and my early career as a scientist, I tried my hardest to get more done by cramming things into every nook and cranny of my day.

I thought that if I could just manage my time better, I could achieve my goals faster and be more effective.

When you struggle with visibility as an introvert

Visibility is one of the things that the introverts in my community tell me they struggle with the most.

Anything from: "I'm not consistent when it comes to being visible for my business" to "I just don't even wanna do it!"

This is so recognizable! And I’ve had (and still have) my issues with visibility. At several times, I've had anxiety about being visible for my business.

In this episode, I’m taking you a bit along my visibility journey.

Lessons from building this podcast in 6 weeks

Channeling your thoughts and creativity into a finished “thing” can be stressful at times.

Where do I start?

I don’t feel ready!

I don’t have enough information to start.

I think I bit off more than I can chew…

Uh oh, it’s not going according to plan, what now?

These are just some of the thoughts that may be going through your head when the word “deadline” flashing in front of your face.

Can you train focus?

In the past couple of years, I’ve tried a lot of different things to get my online business off the ground:

Are all introverts shy?

Did you know that shy is a synonym for introvert?

This was first pointed out to me by someone in a group I was a member of and I thought: This cannot be true!

Well, it's true.

I looked in every dictionary I could get my hands on, both hard-copies and online. And yes, 8 out of the 10 dictionaries that I looked in had that definition included.

In this week's podcast episode, we'll talk about what it really means to be an introvert and the many misconceptions that are out there (including that introverts are shy!

Welcome fellow innie! You're in the right place :-)

I’m sitting in front of my laptop, staring at a waveform, unsure what to do… (and yes, I did google that word before writing this blog 😆)

You see, 6 weeks ago, I decided that I was going to build a podcast. And although I've been thinking about it for a long time it still feels like I rushed into it a little bit.

(Is that my inner critic talking? Hmm, maybe)

The waveform I’m staring at is the music and audio that I'm going to be using for the podcast intro.

Final episode: Can you build a podcast in 6 weeks?

Week 6 is here!!

At the end of each project, I always ask myself 2 questions:
  1. Did we reach our goal? (Or in this case: Can you really build a podcast in 6 weeks?)
  2. How was the ride? 😆

These past 6 weeks have flown by.

Not everything went according to plan and I’ve learned SO many lessons from this experiment.

I’ll dedicate an entire episode later on to talk about the lessons I’ve learned in these 6 weeks…
