It’s been just exactly a month since we launched Drip Affogato Bar, and needless to say, I’ve slept very little! I finally have a little time carved out to get back to blogging and wanted to share a few tips I’ve been using to managing the busiest time of my life.
Exercise the multi-tasking muscle. I’ve never been a great multi-tasker, but with so much going on, I take every chance I can get to tackle the ever growing list of to-dos. My new HP Spectre has been a crucial tool I turn to to create marketing imagery and tackling emails. The Spectre is probably one of my favorite PC systems as it’s able to process multiple programs at any given time. I’m able to churn out design projects, juggle emails, and manage the entire Drip team’s always changing schedules. I guess with the right tools, I can multi-task after all!
Ask for forgiveness. It’s been a challenge declining new work, initiatives, and invites, especially since I thoroughly enjoy engaging in multiple projects. However, I’ve dropped more balls than I’d like to admit! Fortunately, people have been so understanding with my lack of time and brain space. So, if you find that there’s just too much on your plate, take my advice: ask for forgiveness and reduce the workload!
