  • Okay, now I’m ready.

  • Hey, it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be to create a business

  • and life you love.

  • Now, if youre so damn busy with your day job and trying to do your morning routines

  • and your evening routines that you can’t seem to find time for your side hustle, this

  • episode is for you.

  • Today’s question comes from Vanessa and Vanessa writes: “Hey, Marie.

  • Thanks for what you do with MarieTV, the podcasts, the emails, everything.”

  • Youre welcome.

  • My biggest challenge is trying to create structure around the time I have outside my

  • day job to move forward on my personal projects and side hustles.

  • I hear about everything from morning routines to evening routines, but after all that plus

  • my day job it seems like I won’t have any hours left to actually get to work.

  • Then when I think about all these things I get overwhelmed and I don’t work on anything.

  • How can I develop positive habits to move along with my projects within the finite hours

  • of my work day?

  • Thanks so much, Vanessa.”

  • Oh, Vanessa, Vanessa, Vanessa.

  • I love this question.

  • You are so not alone in feeling overstretched and overcommitted and overwhelmed.

  • And as someone who has been in a similar position working a day job and trying to get my own

  • side hustle off the ground, I can relate.

  • Now, the good news here is that I’m not going to give you even more habits that you

  • need to adopt because all that would have you do is feel more overburdened and overstretched.

  • What I am going to do instead, however, is give you a simple mantra and full on permission

  • to start doing less so you can achieve more.

  • Here’s what I mean.

  • For the foreseeable future, the mantra I want you to live by is this: simplify to amplify.

  • That’s right.

  • Say it again with me.

  • Simplify to amplify.

  • Then you need to do whatever you need to do to remember it.

  • Write it on a post-it note, make it a screensaver on your iPhone, get it tattooed on your hoo-di-hoo.

  • I don't care how you do it, but the point is simply you must simplify, Vanessa.

  • Meaning reduce the number of projects and expectations and obligations that you have

  • so you can amplify, meaning get more results in the limited time you have.

  • And here’s how.

  • Step number one, first you need to forget about the overly complex morning routines

  • and evening routines.

  • Now, look.

  • I know I’m going to get burned at the stake for this one, but look.

  • Sometimes we in the personal development world, we can take things a little bit too far.

  • You know, a few years ago I started to get hives any time I heard about anotherhack

  • and how to use this productivity hack or that health hack or this bio hack or that burrito

  • hack.

  • I’ve got to say, I wanted to stick a hackinfork in my eye.

  • And I will say, I’m starting to feel the same way about this obsession with these elaborate

  • morning routines and evening routines.

  • I mean, yes, of course we all want to take good care of ourselves.

  • And yes, I do believe in meditating daily.

  • I mean, all you need is 10 minutes.

  • And yes, of course, it is smart to maintain healthy habits like working out.

  • And by the way, if you love your morning routine and your evening routine and it’s working

  • for you, please keep going.

  • I mean, rock on with your bad self.

  • But honestly, if I see another headline with “635 things every successful person does

  • before 5:30 AM,” I am going to stick another hackinfork in my eye.

  • I mean, you guys.

  • Am I right?

  • I’m tellinya.

  • Because, you know, it’s like people want you to spend an hour meditating and then a

  • half hour journaling and then an hour working out and then another hour on your gratitudes

  • and then you need to go forage for acai berries and then you need to put them in a bowl that

  • you threw yourself on the pottery wheel and then you need to do a coconut pull.

  • And then before you know it, hey guys.

  • Just finished my morning routine.

  • Who’s ready to crush the day?

  • Yeah!

  • Hey, what are you guys watching?

  • It’s the what the hell are you doing up so late tonight show with special guests:

  • pajamas, the moon, vampires, and a teddy bear.

  • Sponsored by your morning routine that took all damn day.

  • No room for side hustle.

  • Promotional considerations.”

  • Here is the real deal, my friend.

  • When I first started I was like you.

  • I was working my day job and I was working my side hustle too.

  • And I gotta tell you, I did not have a morning routine.

  • I did not have an evening routine.

  • My only routine was this.

  • It was working my damn ass off in every nook and cranny of time that I could find when

  • I was not at my day job.

  • It was messy, it was chaotic.

  • And guess what?

  • It all turned out just fine.

  • But here is one smart thing I did do and I want you to consider it as well.

  • Step number two, only work on one concrete project or goal at a time.

  • You know, Vanessa.

  • The thing that caught my attention in your question was that you said personal projects

  • and my side hustles, plural.

  • And so that leads me to think that you might be trying to do way too many things at the

  • same time.

  • Like, I don't know, put three thousand photographs into five handmade scrapbooks and learn how

  • to speak Mandarin and start a gluten free bakery and be a fashion blogger.

  • Less is more, my friend.

  • You know, most people make the mistake of having too many projects on their plate at

  • one time and the result: nothing ever really gets done.

  • You see, when your time is limited and you scatter it across multiple projects, everything

  • tends to take longer and you rarely get the satisfaction or the momentum that comes when

  • youre able to saydone.”

  • I got to say, I am with Confucius on this one: “the man who chases two rabbits catches

  • neither.”

  • So I need you to decide right now, what is the one project that you want to focus on?

  • Is it your side hustle?

  • Is it your personal life?

  • Keep it simple and achievable and then once you have that clear focus, figure out what’s

  • the one task that you need to do today to get that one project moving or to keep it

  • moving in the right direction?

  • And then all you need to do is just set yourself a simple timer, like 30 minutes or 60 minutes

  • or 90 minutes.

  • I mean, whatever you can put aside.

  • And during that time you work on one discrete task and then youre done.

  • And then any free time you can find, you keep moving that one project ahead until it is

  • complete.

  • And then and only then can you start on the next stage of that project.

  • I want you to remember this: simplify to amplify, baby.

  • Now, let’s land this plane on a tweetable.

  • Simplicity and focus keep a side hustle from becoming a pushed-aside hustle.

  • That was my A to your Q, Vanessa.

  • I sure do hope it helps.

  • And now I would love to hear from you.

  • In the spirit of simplify to amplify, what’s one single project that deserves your time

  • and attention and tell me why?

  • Then I want you to tell me the very next task or milestone that will move you closer to

  • done.
