Hello, ladies! Welcome to the LBC (Labonnecopine) blog, where I am delighted to connect with you today. I am eager to discuss a topic that concerns us all: balancing our personal projects with our work. Whether you are a student, an employee, or an entrepreneur, I understand how challenging it can be to juggle our personal aspirations while honoring our professional commitments and our own biological rhythm.
That’s why I have decided to share some tips and advice to help you find this balance and enable you to realize your dreams without sacrificing your career. Are you ready to discover how to thrive in what you undertake while maintaining a balanced life? Stay with me; you are in the right place!
How to Adapt Your Project to Your Biological Rhythm?
First and foremost, it’s important to know that we all have different biological rhythms. Some of us are morning people, while others are night owls, and this affects our ability to be energetic and focused. Therefore, it is important to respect your internal clock and work on your project when you feel most productive. If you are a morning person, take advantage of those hours to make progress on your business before heading to work. If you are a night person, allocate that time to your project after completing your professional and family obligations. This way, you will be more efficient and motivated.
To illustrate this point, let’s take the example of Julie, an entrepreneur who launched her natural cosmetics brand. Julie is a morning person; she wakes up at 6 AM and dedicates two hours to her project before heading to the office. During this time, she responds to emails, manages orders, creates content for her social media, and conducts market research. She feels more creative and dynamic in the morning and knows she won’t have the time or inclination to work on her business in the evening after a long day at work.
According to a study conducted by the University of Lübeck in Germany, morning people may have a cognitive advantage over night people. Researchers observed that morning people had better short-term memory and problem-solving abilities than night people. This could be explained by the fact that morning people have a circadian rhythm more synchronized with the solar cycle, which promotes the secretion of melatonin, the sleep hormone, and thus, quality sleep.
However, this does not mean that night people are less competent or less suitable for entrepreneurship. They simply have a different rhythm, which can be just as beneficial if they adapt it to their project. For example, Sarah, another entrepreneur who created her online coaching platform, is a night person. She struggles to wake up early and be productive in the morning. She prefers to work on her project in the evening, after completing her workday and attending to her family. She feels more inspired and focused in the evening, and she takes advantage of this time to develop her coaching programs, reach out to potential clients, conduct webinars, or acquire digital skills. She knows she doesn’t need to wake up at the crack of dawn to succeed in her project; she simply follows her natural rhythm.
According to another study conducted by the University of Madrid in Spain, night people may have higher intelligence than morning people. Researchers measured the IQ of over 1,000 teenagers and found that those who stayed up late and woke up late had, on average, higher IQs than those who went to bed early and woke up early. This could be explained by the fact that night people tend to have a more curious, creative, and original personality than morning people.
There is no ideal rhythm for entrepreneurship. The key is to know your internal clock and use it to your advantage. Whether you are a morning or night person, you can be a successful entrepreneur if you organize your tasks according to your energy and focus.
Organization: A Key Factor in Project Success
Optimize your success by carefully organizing your project. Set achievable goals and prioritize the steps to follow. Use tools such as a calendar, a planner, or an application to schedule tasks and measure your progress. Break your project into smaller sub-projects and reward yourself for each achieved goal.
Effective organization saves you time, reduces stress, and boosts your self-confidence. Try the Pomodoro technique, working in 25-minute sessions interspersed with short breaks. Choose an organization method that suits your work style and adapt it to your needs. Don’t hesitate to change your environment or seek help if necessary.
Remember to reward yourself after each accomplishment. Rewards maintain your motivation and satisfaction. Treat yourself to a break, a leisure activity, a gift, or a compliment, while ensuring it doesn’t compromise your project.
Good organization has a positive impact on your mental and physical health. Studies have shown that planning daily activities reduces anxiety and depression. So, put these tips into practice to optimize your success.
The Getting Things Done (GTD) method is a time and project management approach aimed at reducing stress and increasing productivity. It is based on the principle of capturing all tasks in an external system (calendar, list, software, etc.) and processing them according to specific criteria (urgency, importance, context, energy, etc.). This way, you free your mind from mental clutter and focus on action.
The GTD method can easily integrate with your biological rhythm by considering your energy and concentration levels when planning activities. For example, you can reserve the most complex or creative tasks for when you feel most alert and motivated, and delegate or postpone routine or boring tasks for times when you are less effective. This way, you optimize your efficiency and avoid frustration or fatigue.
Organize yourself effectively by setting goals, using appropriate tools, and rewarding yourself regularly. You will see the concrete benefits of this organization on your motivation and efficiency. Put these tips into action right away to succeed brilliantly in your project!
Finally, remember to have fun and relax.
It is essential not to forget yourself in your project and to keep time for yourself, for your hobbies, friends, and family. This will allow you to recharge your batteries, find inspiration, and stay in good spirits. Remember that your project should be a source of joy, not stress. So trust yourself, listen to yourself, and go for it!
One last piece of advice I would like to give you is not to be afraid of failure. Failure is part of the learning process and allows you to progress. Don’t get discouraged if you encounter difficulties or obstacles. On the contrary, see them as opportunities to improve and surpass yourself. Be proud of your efforts and achievements, even the smallest ones. And above all, never give up on your dream. It is what motivates you and makes you want to move forward. You have the potential and the capabilities to make it happen. Just believe in it and work hard. You’ll see, it’s worth it!
