Q1 2024 Wrap Up: Fast Poke

I randomly checked my last post to see my progress so far.

And I was mindblown.

Q1 2024 ain’t over yet, but I’ve crushed *ALL* 5 of my identified bad habits already! 🤯

How?

Thanks to #HabitSwaps

Now, I’m ready to work on my habits and systems to shorten my execution plan this year.

Aiza’s Quarterly Check-ins + Realignment:
1. Plan on how to make that happen.
2. ✨NEW✨ Schedule it! (Added more fun!)
3. Build a follow-through routine.

Step 1. Habit Swaps

So how can I be LOUDER this year?

#HabitSwaps2024Q2

Be mindful. Whenever you catch yourself doing your bad habit, be aware. Stop it. And do something else.

It’s all about being aware.

From Zach Pogrob

1. Bad habit: Consistency on family + health
  • Swapping ME time in the evening to ME time in the morning, so that means sleeping at 12 and waking up at 6-7 am (in preparation of JJ’s elementary years too)
  • Swapping PM chilling to prepping up for dinner early
  • Swapping to spontaneity to planning healthier meals
  • Swapping 2-3x family night runs into daily walks/runs/workout
  • Swapping not caring about homekeeping with turning our home into a sanctuary by being clean, systematized, and pisan at home
  • Swapping winging out our documents to organizing our important doc stuff
  • Swapping ill-timed breaks with a bit of structure that jives with my two boys’ schedules
2. Bad habit: Not wanting my own dreams bad enough
  • Swapping spontaneity with systems
  • Swapping mediocre career plans to solid ones
  • Swapping experimenting with focus
  • Swapping acting on my own solopreneur dreams NOW for later
  • Swapping to making the little girl inside of me wait to doing everything to get those dreams for her
3. Bad habit: Holding on to breadcrumbs of my people pleaser personality
  • Swapping putting myself last to putting myself (and family) first
  • Swapping feeling sorry if I work on my own stuff to never apologizing for putting my own mission over everyone else’s
  • Swapping delaying my little dreams to working on them bit by bit everyday
  • Swapping to giving it my all to every client to giving what’s just right
4. Bad habit: Putting off personal errands to December
  • Swapping weekends dates to committing to personal stuff (dentist, BIR, etc)
5. Bad habit: Pausing every time I see a little progress on LinkedIn haha!
  • Swapping good enough SaaS content into fire ones 🔥
  • Swapping to being laxed to being relentless in client closing 💰
  • Swapping commenting on random people to tailored ones
  • Swapping DM once a week to DM every day (3-5 PROSPECTS a day)
  • Swapping daydreaming and being envious of LinkedIn superstars with actual work

I have been working hard on my routine for the last 2 years. I’ve been building habits because of it. You have to build routines around your life, not around your business.

  • Morning devo
  • Morning exercise
  • Morning beauty rituals

AM Routine

At JJ’s school – so I bring my laptop with me

  • Bring JJ to school
  • Re-read devotionals
  • LinkedIn ideation + writing
  • Own business – email more regularly
  • LinkedIn connection

PM Routine

In our home office

  • Client work
  • Breaks in between
  • Afternoon chores
  • Afternoon workout
  • Afternoon plant shower
  • Evening break – bike, dinner

Evening Routine

  • Client work (only on Weds)
  • Bedtime story
  • Yoga
  • Night walks/run

I mix my routine with Theme Days to avoid overwhelm. I just need to know I have areas of focus.
