Do you ever have one of these weeks?

My alarm went off early Monday when it was dark and rainy, and I had no pressing deadlines. Why bother getting up? Same on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Every business has its seasons, and I’ve been doing this work long enough to know the patterns. I’ve learned to operate full speed ahead when my team is busy and not to panic when things are slower.

Our job in a slow season is to reassess, plan and focus on all the things we never have time to complete when we’re busy.

I KNOW this, but my problem is that I operate best when I’m busy. A sense of urgency gets me laser focused. Having plenty of time makes me feel, well, blah.

On this week’s episode, I share 6 things to focus on to get focused when you don’t feel like doing anything.

About Wendy:

I help healthcare experts stand out by telling their story on websites, emails and social media. When it comes to marketing, the greatest waste is an idea that fails to connect to its audience – not because it wasn’t a good idea but because it wasn’t packaged as a great story.

My goal is to help clinicians stand out with content marketing. I’ve worked in marketing communications for nearly 20 years and experienced firsthand the rapid pace of change in this space. I launched Sparkr Marketing to help you stay ahead in this age of information overload. I’ll help you filter through the countless marketing tactics to find the right ones to reach your target market. Most importantly, I help your business stay true to your story.
