1 idea: more batching, more focus

Nov 19, 2022

Hey – Janis here.

Today's issue covers 1 idea in 1 min and 24 secs.

Before we begin... Thank you to this week's sponsor...

Framer is a web builder for creative pros. I'm using it myself. Get 3 months off on a pro annual subscription with the discount code pro-yearly-partner.

I am learning to batch so I can focus.

My content creation schedule has been like this for the past two years.

I didn't batch or schedule my content. What got made got published. And I aimed to ship stuff daily.

It felt fine at the begining, but now it doesn't. Creating new content is on my mind daily, and my ability to focus is suffering. I bounce around too much. It's not productive.

Here's the new rule.

What I'll make on Monday and Tuesday I'll schedule throughout that week. It doesn't matter how much, but the newsletter is the top priority due to sponsorship obligations. Posts for socials are secondary.

The rest of the week is for freelance, community support, learning, and noting down ideas for the future.

We will see how it goes. I have a good feeling about this, and I hope it triggered ideas for experiments you could try out in your journey.

That’s it for today!
