Just finished my first 1 hour @flowdotclub session and loved it. Structured for accountability with check-ins at start and end of session with group. Great music and vibes. Knocked out a bunch of things I was putting off. I see a regular spot for this in my week.
Working for yourself has its own challenges. Discipline and consistency are high up on the list.
I’m grateful that Tamilore Oladipo invited me to Flow.Club a while back. It’s a virtual co-working platform where founders, builders, and operators drop into a flow state and get work done in a sprint format.
I’ve clocked in ~50 hours within 3.5 weeks and...
✔️ Finished 3 books (one of which was April Dunford's positioning book, thanks 💥 Tiffany Regaudie 💥 for the reco!)
✔️ Re-positioned my business and updated all of my web copy + design
✔️ Created my content strategy, editorial calendar, and content outlines
✔️ Drafted and scheduled LI + blog posts for the week
✔️ Stayed on top of my emails/admin work
"Almost 80% of the time, I get much more done in that hour than I would have otherwise"
Someone should run a project management service for solopreneurs. I bet a great project manager could take on 10 clients at once. Maybe more.
I would love to be project managed
I can see this being an evolution or an additional service that comes out of @flowdotclub
Finished my first session with @flowdotclub
Can see myself making a regular habit of this. I've always felt like someone who's most focused in meetings, even though I know that's not where the majority of deep work gets done. This felt like the best of both worlds.
"Flow club fits in the most important part of getting and maintaining flow: the doing part."
I am getting so much done with FlowClub now. I had a bad habit, for years, of not being able to get into flow during the work day and resorting to working on weekends because I wouldn't be interrupted. FlowClub has changed that for me already. It's a simple idea, but so valuable.
"I like having one afternoon session every single day. Can I turn what would typically be unproductive time into a really productive, focused hour and feel good about it?"
After many years of procrastination affliction, I've figured out a system that helps me put out great work
1. Simple writing tasklist shared with my awesome manager for accountability
2. My personal Asana/Notion workflow
2. Flow.Club for deep work sprints (amazing what you can get done in 60m sessions)
That's it. I'm now far more productive (and sane) than I've been since I entered university.
Put off documenting a 9 step process for prepping data in Google sheets and importing into Notion for few months now. Was important, but not urgent. Used an end of day @flowdotclub to knock it out and record 10 videos. Feels so good to be doing proactive instead of reactive work!
If you are self employed, or working independently on a project, I think @flowdotclub is especially valuable. It's easy to get sucked down productivity rabbit holes when you are solo/executing independently. Flow Club creates some accountability, even for solo work.
