Do what is most difficult first #organiselife

Every morning, I ride my bike to go to the farmers’ market, to go grocery shopping at the supermarket, to pay my bills, to run errands.

I make a point of doing what is most difficult first. Such a productivity secret helps me to do what I love the most afterwards.

I do not eat before my important tasks are completed.

I usually record youtube videos before noon.

After my big meal at noon, I am free to write on my blog. The afternoon is dedicated to the children.

I highly recommend these two great videos. The first one is “The Morning Routine For Success | Marisa Peer” and the second one: “Earn Your Food- Nothing Till 4“.


My 5 #productivity secrets on youtube and wordpress

My 5 #productivity secrets on youtube and wordpress

My 5 productivity secrets on youtube and wordpress are the following:

1. Record one or more video(s) every day

2. Take time to create a nice thumbnail for your youtube video or choose an image to illustrate your blog post

3. Draft a description of the youtube video. I copy and paste such a text to wordpress to create a new blog post

4. Schedule in advance the publication of the video on youtube and of the article on wordpress so you have peace of mind

5. Promote the release of the new youtube video/blog post on Instagram on the very day they become available

In a nutshell: systematize your production and stick to it 🙂

Why doing the dishes before going to bed a a #success secret?

Why doing the dishes before going to bed a a #success secret?

Never going to bed before having made the dishes and tidied the kitchen is a sucess secret.

A detail? No, a lifestyle!

Waking up in the morning (early), ready to create beautiful things as best as possible requires a clear mind and good vibes.

A neat kitchen improves the quality of our energy sister. Try it!

The most valuable thing in the world: #time

The most valuable thing in the world: #time Claire Samuel

Time is the most valuable thing in the world. May we make the most of it, my friend, my sister. Each moment is unique and will never come again. We have time but we cannot know how much. Each moment is precious. May we never waste one minute. Productivity and self-care? Yes, I’ll have them both. Yes, resting and just enjoying life as it is now is also making the most of my time.

On this topic, I love “The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment” by Eckhart Tolle:

Great #productivity tip: break a task into multiple tasks

Great #productivity tip: break a task into multiple tasks Claire Samuel

You can do anything my friend my sister. My wish is that we do not feel overwhelmed by all the things we have to do, especially as mothers. I love to break each “thing to do” into multiple small things. Let’s not be ashamed of how small we can break our big task. It is worth to walk step by step on the road to success.

Take control of your #time

Take control of your #time Claire Samuel

I am in charge of how I organize my day. I take full responsibility for making my best efforts to achieve my dreams. Moreover, I do my best to think positively about time. My mantra is that I have all the time I need. I aim to stay super organised. My work can help others so taking control of my time is not only a way to achieve success but also a responsibility to make the world a better place.

I have been very inspired by the energy and generosity of Brendon Burchard. He wrote High Performance Habits and The Motivation Manifesto. I decided to implement small habits that matters: for instance, I do check my emails only twice a day. I do not let people sending me emails take control of my time.

Brendon has an amazing YouTube channel here and I had the privilege to discover his work thanks to Marie Forleo’s interview of him.

Check out Brendon’s books:
