2º. Dedicate an Hour For Your WERK By Koereyelle DuBose, Founder, WERKPraySlay
Everyday I dedicate at least 1 hour to my WERK. The work with an E is the time, energy, effort and resources spent on your own dreams, independent of anyone else’s needs. One hour is only 4% of the day so I make sure I’m investing in myself along with all of the other work I finish for everyone else. During this time, I work on both personal and professional goals. It could be anything from writing blogs to sending emails to listening to Michael Beckwith sermons.:
Take Action: If you wanna Start a Brand new life and Routine as a Boss Lady, I would Highly suggest you to get a Brand new Calendar and make sure your meetings and work are aligned with your intentions.

Karlyn’s has shared her ‘elephant’ story on the Oprah Winfrey network, spoke to Oprah as the Founder of the SisterTalk group, and changes daily habits and lives through her success planner and coaching.
Karlyn Created the "Dress your Mind Habit" a technique that will help you proactively choose the thoughts, words and feelings that you wants to invoke that day.
Take a Blank white or colored paper. Karlyn likes to use a simple sketch pad you could pick-up for a couple dollars, coloured pens or markers. Optional: Additional decorations such as wasabi paper, glitter
Step 1: Do a brain dump using the blank piece of paper. Write the words and thoughts that invoke meaning, desire, joy, and other emotions.
Step 2: After doing your brain dump, create categories; think of it like categories that relate to your makeup/style routine.

4º. Time Blocking By Pauleanna Reid, Celebrity Ghostwriter, 2x Author, Sr. Forbes Contributor
Pauleanna Reid is a multi-passionate entrepreneur. With 6 streams of income, time management is an essential skill she’s honed. Her ability to be focused on income generating activities helped her make double her income from her 9-5 job last year, and recently quit to go full-time in her businesses.
Time blocking is being very strategic and intentional with how you spend your day and decide when you will work on specific projects. Below is a framework she adapted to plan her day
- Time blocking (4 time blocks between 7a to 5p)
- Time Block #1 is called AM1 from 7a to 9a - (her most important items happen)
- Time Block #2 is called AM2 from 9a to 12p - Social media, special projects, content creation, revenue generating activities - which is critical
- Time Block #3 is called PM1 from 12p to 2p - Meetings/staff questions
- Time Block #4 is called PM2 from 2p to 5p - prep for next day
- Buffer - for anything that has not been completed during the day
You will not get 10 things done in a day. Be very realistic. Whatever to-do list you’ve got shorten it by 75 percent. Focus on few. There’s no point getting a bunch of things done at 50%. Approx. 2-3 tasks in each time block. Plan one day at a time. Don’t plan an entire month if you struggle to get through 1 single day.”
Take Action: Write down your top priorities, and then add them to your calendar in color coded time blocks. She also recommends that you schedule blocks of time around your most natural energy waves.
5º- Oprah Winfrey Strategy to Beat Procrastination
“I procrastinate with confrontational things and uncomfortable conversations. I’ll give myself a deadline. And then I’ll change that deadline when that deadline shows up [laughs]. ‘Okay, by 3, I’m going to make that call.’ Four o’clock comes around—‘Okay okay, by 5 today. Oh, everybody’s left New York! Can’t make that call!’ So now I sit and ask myself, ‘What’s the worst that’s going to happen here, and why do I fear the confrontation?
“I have an iPad Mini and I do everything from there. I haven’t used a computer in probably three years. I’ve gotten every kind of app that’s supposed to help you keep up, but that means you have to check that thing every day! No. I don’t do to-do lists. It’s all right here [pointing to her head]. I have a wonderful chief of staff who every night sends me my itinerary for the next day. I look at that, put it in my head, and that’s it.”
