As we head towards the busiest time of the year for many of us, and the various coronavirus restrictions adding an extra layer of complications, just how do you stay on top of it all?

Here at Digital Nachos we advise that you take an hour away from everything and anything. Switch off the emails, turn off the phone, try and find a moment of peace to just focus. Whatever time of day suits you best, just try and grab that hour.

Once you have gotten away from it all, take a breath and first consider your priorities for the remainder of 2020.

If it helps to separate the life and work priorities into two columns, then do so. We know exactly how hard it is to focus on your business activities when life is so chaotic at the moment.

Once you have the priorities, go through them one by one and think about what you need to do to make those priorities a reality. Work backwards, and where possible put dates for when they need to be done.

For example, if your focus is Christmas and the Christmas sales and write down what you need to do to get those sales. Confirming stock by the middle of October, creating imagery for the products and making the necessary amends to your website by the end of October, highlighting products, offers and publishing the last delivery dates on social media throughout November and December.

Where you require external services, such a photographers or courier services then think ahead. Contact them sooner rather than later to ensure that they schedule space for you in their own busy schedules. If you want assistance with your online marketing efforts for Christmas then make sure you contact the team here at Digital Nachos asap.

And lastly, think of yourself in this time. Carve out moments for you, whether that be a regular exercise session, attending a virtual zoom quiz with friends and a bottle of wine, or even just an hour after the kids are in bed to have a huge bubble bath with a good book. You can’t keep going if you don’t care and fuel yourself.
