Wedding Planners - Don 't Get Distracted - Stay Focused on Your Goals

At the beginning of the year, you set goals for your wedding planning business. You might have decided to finally launch your business, attract more brides to your existing business or maybe expand and add new services and products.

Have you started to accomplish some of your goals or have you found yourself overwhelmed with so many distractions that you haven’t made much progress?

There can be a lot of distractions in daily life and unless you get and stay focused, you won’t be able to become the top wedding planner you want to be.

Here are 3 tips that will help you avoid distractions so you can concentrate on making your business a success:

1) Set boundaries

With all the technology in use today, family, friends and brides can reach you 24/7 via phone, texting and email. While you want to be reachable, if you’re not in the critical last weeks before a wedding, set aside specific times during the day to read and respond to email and social media comments and return phone calls. Don’t let other people control your time.

2) Set priorities

If your goal is to to have a successful wedding planning business, you need to spend your time marketing and promoting your business and giving your brides excellent service.

Each evening before leaving your office, write down the things you want to accomplish the next day, be realistic about what you can get done, and start in on them as soon as you sit down at your desk.

3) Stop multitasking

Multitasking can make you feel like you’re getting many things done at the same time but it can actually hurt your productivity and the quality of your work. Each time you switch from one task to another, you’re actually interrupting your own work and making your brain figure out where you left off before it can start doing the task again.

So as difficult as it might be, concentrate on doing one thing at a time so you’re always doing your best for your business and giving your best to your brides.
