Are you scared of working LESS?

Working less blog post Agnese Rudzate productivity strategist

Can you really earn more when working less?

I’m not the only one who has been conditioned to think that the harder I work the more money I will make; the harder I work, the more successful I will be; the harder I work, the more worthy I will be; the harder I work, the more appreciated I will be and so on….

I have to admit that I have actually been working HARD...

… working hard on changing my believes in all the above. Still in the process of that and I have to say, it’s quite challenging especially when they lurk their ugly head from people around.

But I get it.

We believe that working less will somehow minimize our success, our worth, and our deserving for better.

This is what we keep hearing:

“What comes easy, won’t last.”

“Hard work pays off.”

“Power means happiness; power means hard work and sacrifice.” – Beyonce Knowles

“We live in the kind of society where, in almost all cases, hard work is rewarded.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

“There is no substitute for hard work, 23 or 24 hours a day. And there is no substitute for patience and acceptance.” – Cesar Chavez

 “Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” – Peter Drucker

When we read these famous people telling us that hard work equals success, it’s hard to believe the opposite, right?

Starting your own business takes time, patience, sacrifices, energy, and endless motivation. All that is hard work. BUT now when you’re couple years in your business with constant income flow, shouldn’t it be the time to actually be able to enjoy the results?

"Lets put our conditioned believes aside for a moment and enjoy the freedom of choosing what we want to do, how we want to do it, and how much time we want to spend on it." - Agnese Rudzate

It opens endless possibilities, in fact, there are many successful people who have proven that fewer working hours have worked in their favor by not only giving well deserved time freedom but also a significant increase in profits. Here are a few examples.

  • Entrepreneur Timothy Ferriss said he made more money working four hours per week than he did from working 80. In his book The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich, Timothy wrote that he was able to go from making $40,000 per year and working 80 hours per week to making $40,000 per month and working four hours per week.


  • Investor Sam Dogen said that at the beginning of his career he was working 70+ hours per week, but he retired at the age of 34, because he’s been saving and investing ever since he got his first job.

Even the whole companies have seen crazy income boost by applying fewer working hours:

Their example only shows that everything is possible with the right mindset, strategy, and plan. Don’t exhaust yourself thinking that you will rest later or have some family time during the weekend only to realize that your to-do list needs finishing.

Search for answers, seek advice and you will find that it is also possible for you to work fewer hours without sacrificing well-built success.

Otherwise, please know that you can always write me a quick note, short email (or a long one, I really don’t mind) if you have any concerns, questions, or need a little guidance in reducing the workload. Stop trying to figure it all out on your own, world is full of experts that are willing to guide you 🙂

Learn to be more selfish and make this Valentines’ day about you!

Valentines day blog Agnese Rudzate organizing clarity love

Be selfish, make this Valentine’s day about you!

This post is about LOVE - love to the most important person in your life: Yourself!

Although historically Valentine’s day is couples love fest, I believe that we have to love ourselves first to then share it with others. So this year on 14.02. make it about you, treat yourself and dive in to self-care, self-awareness, self- “anything you want it to be” to bring your full potential to the world.

We can only serve our true purpose when bringing our true self to the floor. Yes, I know – easier said than done! When you are sitting by the work desk in your 9 to 5 job feeling miserable, you are most definitely not offer the work your truth and full potential to make it the world you want to see. That being said, don’t leave your job without having plan B. I have done it and had to learn the hard way that it is not a good feeling to constantly rely on someone for financial support while dreaming of my own business and not having the funds to move forward with it.

But I want you to start little by little, by building your self-esteem and start to believe that you CAN! Because you most definitely are capable of it.

Let’s start self-awareness journey with this Valentine’s day and take purposeful action to shift in the right direction.

Here are just couple of totally free, but priceless practices to be kind, loving and gentle to yourself starting this Valentine’s day and continuing for the rest of your life.

1. Embrace yourself and let yourself be loved.

Your are a goddess and deserving of all the love that comes your way – so embrace it! Accept love and kindness when it’s offered. You’re worth it! It might be hard to open up and invite kindness (I am talking form experience), however once you surrender, huge weight lifts from your shoulders and you literally change you vibration, which invites more love in to your life. And this is definitely something we need – to build our lives on solid love-filled foundation. So when someone gives you a compliment, simply say, “Thank you.” Don’t resort to false modesty, or talk yourself out of it. When someone offers you help, take it, because you deserve to make your life easier.

2. Let yourself feel all the emotions.

Weather it’s pain, sadness, joy or happiness, let yourself feel all of the emotions to the fullest. Now, when our lives are filled by perfect Instagram posts with tropical beaches and smiley faces, it is harder than ever to allow yourself to just be in the moment and feel what ever needs to be felt. If you are happy, don’t hide it just to make someone else dissatisfied or jealous of your joy. If you feel sad, let yourself cry, feel it and let it go. Yes, sometimes, us women, need to be strong and hold the forth, but know when that time is over and you can go back to your roots to be fragile, vulnerable and feminine. 

“Embrace the goddess you are! It is completely fine to seek comfort, support and love.” - Agnese Rudzate

3. Surround yourself with right people.

I understand that we can’t choose our family, but we can for sure choose our friends. It might sound harsh, but you might need to clear out your “friends” list. Take your time to go all in into each and every relationship that you call “Friendship”. Relationships have a powerful effect on our well-being. You want to surrender yourself with people who lift you up, support you, love you, in which presence you don’t have to pretend (quite down your joy, for example) and that are there when you need them. 

“Support makes all the difference!” - Agnese Rudzate

You want to make sure to have a strong support system that you can rely and count on. Seek out the people who build you up, and minimize contact with those who bring you down.

4. Deal with your Inner Critic.

As harsh as it is, we can be our worst critics. This for sure leaves devastating effect on our well-being. One thing is when someone else criticizes you, because that can be very easy to explain: The way people treat you is a reflection of them as human beings, it has nothing to do with you. If you keep that in mind, the outer critic can not hurt you. 

However when you treat yourself badly by self-doubt, discouragement, comparison, it ruins your high vibration, brings your energy level down and you end up far from being alined with our whole self. Be mindful of the things you say to yourself when no one else is listening. Once that inner Critic shows up, notice it and let it go. Creating this awareness is the first step to making self love your default state. Meditation is one of the practices that can help you quite your inner critic and restore your well-being.   

Remember the airplane cabin crew reminding to put your oxygen mask first in case of pressure loss? It’s so you can help others. Love is our oxygen and without it we can’t spread it and create magic in the world.

It is my wish to you to embrace yourself and let love in for this Valentine’s day and further, because you are deserving and worthy.

Let me know what self-care rituals you are planning for yourself today, this month, this year to feed your soul with goodness and return the gorges in you.

P.S. Rest assured, there is more than enough love in the world to go around. Open up your heart, and let it in.

Don’t be afraid to click that “share” button if you know someone who might benefit from this article, I would be extremely happy to spread more love around.
