News from NLD
After reading Digital Minimalism and being a current Building A Second Brain student, I've drastically changed how I spend my time. Max 30 mins a day on social media and lots more reading (I've read 3 books in the past 7 days). And I'm reading for impact - and to benefit future Meagan, who is someone I think about often these days. It's immensely rewarding to be able to apply what I am learning to my business and to be able to support my clients in achieving their goals by coaching them through similar challenges. I'm excited to see what these tweaks in behavior and habits brings in 2022 and will be sharing what I learn with you.
On that note, I have only 2 spots to work with me at 2021 rates. If you need a comprehensive, strategic, and growth-oriented business ecosystem, your ClickUp questions answered, or want to bring in 2022 with a strategic business blueprint, now is the time to get in touch.

The One-Touch Guide to Doing a Weekly Review: How I Go From Chaos to Clarity in 30 Minutes - Forte Labs
If you've chatted with me in the past few weeks, chances are I've mentioned this article on doing a Weekly Review. This is a key practice in productive weeks and pushing things forward. Set aside 30 minutes a week to review and deal with your email, calendar, Desktop/Downloads folder (yikes!), notes, and tasks. In ClickUp I recommend filtering for unassigned tasks and dealing with those and also tasks where no due date is set. You can also filter for tasks where the date update is before a certain date, allowing you to see all those old stale tasks you should probably either close or delegate.
Game Changer - Text Replacement
We have shortcuts for so many things -- why not add shortcuts for what you frequently type as well? If you're an Apple user, head to settings>general>keyboard>text replacement and create shortcuts for those long phrases you frequently type - the link to your freebie, your service pitch, your booking link, etc. What you set up on your phone works on your computer too. This is a huge time - and head space - saver.
Windows people - use something like text expander to save time and standardize what you say - or when people ask for something like your affiliate link. Check out https://textexpander.com/ for windows.
Quote of the Week
There have been some nice doc updates following Docs 3.0 - one is editing publicly shared docs easily (big time saver) and also the addition of columns in docs - different sized columns too. Just type /cols to add columns.
