Anyone that wants to follow their dreams and focus on their goals could benefit to build a routine that works for them in order to take consistent action.

If you been around here for a while, you know I am quite a multi-passionate person and I refuse to deny myself anything I love to do, just because people think it’s crazy.

There’s something to be said about niching and narrowing down the focus, and it works really well for some people – but as with all things, it doesn’t work for everyone.

And if you are filled with lots of ideas and interests it can be hard to embody them all, when people insist on focusing on that one thing. But the reality is we are multi-dimensional.

There was a time where I tried to do a little bit of everything every day but that wasn’t working too well because I would get caught up in an activity and was so involved in it that other things would fall to the wayside.

And there is something to be said about routine, you just get more done!
So, no matter how many interests you have, you can do them all if you include flexibility and clarity of everything you want to do. It really comes down to you, what you love to do and managing your time.

build a routine

My motto is: You can have the cake and eat it too!

Creatives have the hardest time with routine and strategy but I promise when you work out what works for you, the better you can focus and create all the things.

Something that will help you in discovering what will work for you is to know what time of the day you work best! When can your brain handle all the work you need to be doing in order to achieve your goals!

For myself, I work best in the morning hours until about 2 pm – after that, my brain becomes smoosh.

I currently manage The Rebels Den, my art business, and 2 additional blogs as well as client work!

This often comes across as A LOT for other people. People who don’t really get me or know me, and I am totally okay with that. This isn’t for everyone. Some people are better off just focusing on one thing, but I am not one of those.

So here’s what works for me! While what you see is the overall theme, I allow space for small adjustments and being flexible – as a special needs parent that’s a necessity and as a creative it’s pretty important too!

build a routine

An overview of my week flow:

  • Monday: Content Development Day (blog, social media) + Art
  • Tuesday: Writing Day (book) + Art
  • Wednesday: Client Day + Art
  • Thursday: Accountability (I meet with my business bestie) + Art
  • Friday: Client Day + Art
  • Saturday+ Sunday: Whatever the heck I want

Content Development, Writing, Client work, etc all of this is done by 2 pm! This allows room in the afternoon for:

  • creativity time
  • housework
  • working out
  • family time

Some of the activities I can do in the evening in front of the television, especially on days where I have several calls or networking activities going on.

How to build a routine that works for you?

  • Create a list of all the things you want to do
  • Write out what your ideal week would look like with all the things
  • Schedule in the activities where it intuitively feels good
  • Be open to adjusting as you play around with a routine that works for you

If you need help to build a routine then why not schedule a clarity session with me to hash out all the details of what would work best for you?!

As a foster kid, she knows the challenges and excuses people make as she rewrote her own story and then worked her way through to become a Master's level therapist.

Petra helps you dive deeply into the heart of things in order to discover your next steps, inspires you to set up your own personal framework so you can break free from fear, doubt, and overwhelm so you can start creating the life you want now. Petra uses her personal story to inspire and motivate people into doing the work they need to do to create change because she believes that your excuses are just avoidance. You can have the cake and eat it too if you're willing to show up for it!
