How to stop procrastinating...

Jul 12, 2022

In this day and age we are so inundated with choice and opportunity that you might even say we are spoiled for choice.

There is just so much that we could do that we often end up not doing anything at all. Procrastination is one of the biggest dream killers. In a world where there is so much demand for your attention it is becoming ever more difficult to stay focussed and act on the things that would truly give you an extraordinary quality of life.

Time is, was and will always be your most valuable asset and the way you use it will determine what you create or fail to create with and for your life. Having an effective strategy for overcoming procrastination is critical if you truly want to push past short term obstacles to create a life of fulfilment.

The abundance that modern life offers us tends to overwhelm us which leads to an emotional overload that will distract you and scatter your effort and concentration.

There simply isn't enough time to do everything, but there is always...

Time Management for the Busy Business Mama

May 26, 2021

I can talk about time management forever. But how productive would that be? 

If you are a business owner and a mama (momentrepreneur), you know a little bit about it already,  whether you think about it or not, if you juggle both things - you are always trying to manage your time. Maybe not effectively, but you do it.

I want you to manage your time so that your time isn't managing you. You can be a business owner, a mom, a partner, a board member, a crossfitter, and an adventurer -of anything else you want to be or do - but that a conscious effort! 

For June, in our Break Complacency Business Group (check it out here https://www.lauren-cleveland.com/bcbc-business-group-sales-page .... we are talking about Time Management. I have been teaching time management to business owners for the last few years. There always seems to be something new that I find intriguing in books that I read, podcasts that I listen to, or people that I follow that talk...

Time Management for the First Responder Families

Mar 22, 2021

Time Management for First Responders Families 

I could talk about this topic forever. Learning about managing my time - literally changed my life! As the spouse of a First Responder - I was struggling to keep up. There were just too many things to do in the day! I am just sharing what works for me - and how I teach others to attempt to get ALL THE THIS under control. 

I am a busy body by nature. I love to have tons of things on the go. I am extroverted and if you happen to know anything about Enneagram Personality tests - I am an 8. I run a few businesses. I am the founder of To Serve and Connect - a non-profit dedicated to working with First Responder Spouses and Families. I am a mom to two incredible little men. I am the wife of a police officer. I am a business and life coach. A podcast host. A cook. A cleaning service. A meal planner. A birthday party planner. The chief financial officer. ECT. YOU GET THE PICTURE. I sometimes complain about it, but I actually...

Prioritizing for Productivity

Mar 08, 2021

The reason we can't seem to get anything done is because are prioritizes are out of WHACK! 

“A priority is the concern, interest or desire that comes before all others.”- volcabulary.com 

Okay, so what comes before all others! 

Grab a pen and paper, or your phone and just quickly jot down your priorities. 

I usually recommend 5 - no more than 7.  And then put them in order from the most important to the least important (still being important - but it is imperative that you know where they fall in the hierarchy). 

Now, shit is about to get real here!

I want you to look at the previous week - and see how much time you spent on your priorities. I work with people who tell me that health is a priority, but when they look back on the last week they notice that they only got in one workout, they ate out 6 times, and they didn’t practice any self care! Now, for most of the people I work with - THIS IS NOT A WIN.

...But if you are just...
