How I Manage My Time, Stay Productive, and Stay Motivated | CHATTING WITH CHRISTINE

Listen to my full podcast episode here:

I have a strong philosophy that you can manage your time to STAY productive. You don’t manage your time without taking in consideration with productivity and you can’t be productive without managing your time. Today, I break down how exactly I do it, and it really starts with planning big then breaking it down into bite-sized pieces which helps you stay motivated.

I juggle my full time job as an Accenture technology consultant, a content creator with a YouTube channel, podcast, Instagram, and Clubhouse, and entrepreneur with Technology Consulting Community PLUS being an NYC cat mommy of three. How do I do it all? This is how!


Remember to value your mental health

Hustle culture is toxic. Simple as that.

I think everyone knows mental health is important, but whenever it comes to making a deadline or catching up to peers, it falls to the wayside as our last priority. I personally schedule time for myself rather than using the free time leftover for myself.

Here is how I prioritize my mental health:
-Weekend nights are my me times, non-negotiable! If I run late with editing or filming or anything else, I stop and save it for the next day.
-Friday nights are date nights! No work, no side hustle, nothing. Just time with Addison Chen and the cats!
-I batch and cluster a lot of the work that uses the same energy or similar tasks together and do it all at once for one weekend and the rest of the weekends are free! Work smart, not just work hard.
-Learn to SAY NO. I found this one to be the hardest for me because I used to say yes to everything because I didn’t want to disappoint, but if I don’t enjoy it or find value in it, I say no.

You’ll thank yourself later. How do you value your mental health, and what self care do you do?

How I Manage My Time

PSA for Consultants: STOP DOING THIS!

I’m ranting about something that SO MANY CONSULTANTS need to stop doing! This is a different format of a video then I usually do, but whether you’re a new or experienced consultant, please stop and watch this now!

It’s very important for your mental and physical health to know your boundaries. For some reason, the consulting lifestyle is glorified as a “rite of passage” to work long hours and on weekends, but life really doesn’t have to be like that! I spoke to many consultants and find out why it is, and now I’m telling you WHY YOU NEED TO STOP THIS and HOW.
