#260: The 5-Step Productivity Must-Do’s to Get More Out of Your Business (Minus the Burnout!) with Mridu Parikh

Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy Podcast

Life is life. It's not just work. Mridu Parikh is a productivity coach, best-selling author of Accomplish It, founder of Life is Organized, and host of the Productivity on Purpose Podcast. In today's episode, Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner, and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast, sits down with Mridu to exchange a myriad of best practices on how to live a happier life by maintaining a steady work-life balance. We encourage you to ready your notepads because this episode is filled with timeless, life-changing insights you would want to remember! EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS With her career taking a toll on her work-life balance, Mridu begins her journey of time management and productivity, and created a business revolving around helping people "have a real life." The best measurement for productivity is how you feel at the end of the day. Productivity doesn't depend on how much you accomplish but on the significance of what you accomplish. A common struggle is we focus too much on clearing our to-do lists and too little on "what's going to make me feel successful." A common misconception for business owners is they think "success" equals "doing more." Focus more on planning, and you're gonna have less and better doing. Mridu elaborates on her 5 Umbrella Process which she runs her clients through Realize your goals and focus. What is truly important? Make adjustments to your calendar to fit your vision. What would your ideal week look like? Create a system. Everything can be systematized better, be it your personal life or professional life alike. You can never over-systematize. Get a team to delegate tasks off your plate. Boundaries and communication. Saying no is uncomfortable, but there's a way to ease that burden. Mridu provides several real-life examples of how to say no without sounding too dismissive and maintain client relationships. Setting your schedule is helpful not only for us but also for our clients. If you're delegating, you should expect 80% of what you would be able to do. It's important to look at projects and recognize which ones you can delegate. Training takes time, but not delegating it wastes more time. The best project management tool is the one you're going to use. If you're comfortable with Google Docs and it works for you, then use that for now. Think of different themes for your days to create consistency (e.g. Wednesdays are Podcast Days. Fridays are Admin and Finance Days, etc.) When bombarded by a multitude of tasks, focus on 5 things – ideally 3 Professional and 2 Personal Agendas Mridu recommends the book "Atomic Habits" by James Clear 3 KEY POINTS Productivity is a state of emotion. When overwhelmed by tasks, take things one step at a time. Life is not just work. That's why it's called "work-life balance." TWEETABLE QUOTES “Life is life. It's not just work.” – Mridu Parikh “When overwhelmed by countless responsibilities, start with, ‘What are the top 5 things I can accomplish that will make me feel awesome when my head hits the pillow tonight?’” – Mridu Parikh CONNECT WITH JASON DUPRAT LinkedIn | Facebook | Instagram | Youtube Email: support@jasonduprat.com RESOURCES Want to become a Ketamine Therapy provider?

The Self-Employed Life

Overwhelm can paralyze and keep us from getting even the most simple projects completed. As busy entrepreneurs, we need to have a few tips and tricks up our sleeves to ensure we stay on track and don’t let overwhelm stop our progress. Mridu Parikh is known as the stress stopper. She is the founder and owner of Life is Organized. She is a productivity speaker and coach obsessed with focusing on what matters most and keeping stress and overwhelm at bay.  Mridu is the author of Accomplish It: 7 Simple Actions To Get the Right Things Done and Achieve Your Goals, a book about uncomplicating life by taking control of our time. It consists of seven simple actions that can help us stop overwhelm, stay motivated, and feel accomplished. She is also the host of the Productivity On Purpose Podcast. We have a conversation about some of the pitfalls of overwhelm and how simple proven strategies can help us in all areas of our lives. We talk about clearing your desk, turning off notifications, calendar blocking, and the Pomodoro technique. Mridu starts her day with power hours, where she schedules that critical task for the first hour of the day. This can be for business or personal, like writing for an hour each day. We talk about knowing your priorities and how small things like taking 5-10 minutes to plan your next day can significantly impact you. It’s essential to write things down to free your brain for creativity and learn to say “no, not now” graciously. We go over batching, systems, and more clever time-saving actions.  And be sure to subscribe to The Self-Employed Life in Apple podcasts or follow us on Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts so you don’t miss an episode.

Planning for Success with Mridu Parikh

The Driven Woman Entrepreneur

Far too many female entrepreneurs fail to reach their goals because they don’t plan for success.  They think that passion, energy, and creativity are enough and may reject the idea of planning as unnecessary, irrelevant, or just too painful.  I used to be one of them and gave myself every possible excuse for why I couldn’t plan when I was actually afraid I wouldn’t follow through. Today’s guest, Mridu Parikh, a former professional organizer turned productivity coach, author, podcaster and speaker is obsessed with planning and believes that not only does planning create freedom, but that we will never reach our most important goals without a plan. Mridu specializes in helping overwhelmed mompreneurs prioritize and systemize so they take control of their demands and distractions – at home and at work.Here are a couple of the highlights you are going to hear:Mridu says most women treat their brain like a warehouse, but we should think of it as a factory instead How to stay focused on your most important goal by anchoring to it every day with this simple technique Clarity comes from action, not thinking  Want to connect with our guest, Mridu Parikh?Site:  https://lifeisorganized.comPodcast: https://lifeisorganized.com/podcast/IG: https://www.instagram.com/lifeisorganizedLI: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mridu-parikh/Freebies: 21 Killer  hacks To Stop Feeling Overwhelmed: http://lifeisorganized.com/resources/Mridu is the founder of Life Is Organized, author of the Amazon bestseller, Accomplish It, and the host of the Productivity on Purpose podcast.
