Read on for some of the episode's best takeaways - and a full transcript at the end.
At early stage companies, there’s a lot more leadership required and strategy becomes much more critical. Zoe saw the deficit in her ability to do this, and so has been working hard to cultivate prioritization.
“Wanting to progress in my career and moving into leadership ... means also helping others prioritize.”
From writing copy, creating messaging, meeting with peers, getting product feedback. There are so many things in content and community marketing that you could be doing but are you spending your time wisely?
“I could do a lot of stuff and provide almost no value to the business but be really busy… there’s a difference between being busy and getting work done.”
Maybe like Zoe, you’ve tried to fit it all in - to a point where you go over and beyond in your work. And if you don’t make time for feeling physically good, your work and personal life will suffer. This might include more working out, setting boundaries in social life, and focusing on quality time with the people that matter.
“It’s been interesting to shift my focus to health, but it’s going to pay off for my work and my relationships. This is the time to double down and build up some healthy routines.”
IF you let things happen without planning, it doesn’t craft you into the person you want to be. Accountability (trainers, coaches) is critical to ensure you follow through on the routine. Also, don’t try to do everything different all at once - because that’s just hard and never works out.
“Having a baseline routine is something that can be really good for your health.”
