Get Organized – Make every day your best day

Okay so this is something I have been working on really very hard!  Maybe you feel the same and you need some guidance or maybe just a little support to help you get more organized and find better ways to plan your day.

I have to confess that I can be a total procrastinator sometimes!  Shit I have been struggling with this most of my life.  I have come to the realization that I tend to do all the fun things and put of the stuff that is actually really important sometimes.  The reality is I have rubbed of on my 10 year old and that made me think and take massive action to correct it.

My daughter is 13 and to me such a great example of planning and organizing her day and week.  She never forgets anything and she is always ready for what is on it’s way.  I can see the calmness and piece of mind that resides within her.  She will start a project and won’t stop until it is finished.

It made me realize that my method of planning is obviously not working always.  She gets shit done and I am forever complaining that I don’t have enough time in my day…..  Just plain bad planning on my side!!  I have a morning ritual that I do every single morning.  Part of that is to write my list for the day.  I used to write a lot of stuff on my list without prioritizing them.  That is where the confusion and overwhelming feelings take over my day.

Reality is…. I am just shitty at planning and I can totally turn that around.  I have tried numerous methods in my life with little success.  So I have started doing research and looking at my best friend (who is super organized!) for ideas on how to organize my day better and have a more productive day.  You have to find something that works for you.  There is no one size fits all.  We have different lifestyles and different personalities.

I am sharing with you three different ideas that I have found.  Maybe you resonate with one of them and it can change your life!

  1.  Robin Sharma – “The way you start your day, determines the way you live your day”

2.  Amy Landino – Time blocking

3.  [gview file=”http://mandnlifestyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Pink-Mint-Green-Grid-Serif-Daily-Planner1.pdf”]

 

So my son and I are helping each other (like a little project) to keep to our lists and plan our day.  So far so good!  He went for bright post-its on his wall and I am using the daily planner.  My head is more clear and organized and I am surprised how much I get done in a day!  It gives you a sense of accomplishment to see all your ticks at the end of the day.

 

Create away and enjoy planning your perfect day every day!
