I would love to think that I was a little crazy; maybe do something right out of the blue but with all honesty that might just spend me into a tizzy! But when a surprise aka life does happen, the best thing to do is to write a list! This is the best way to put your goals, ideas, priorities right there in front of you.
It is also a good way to tackle your fears. For example if you have a project, task or any other daunting item on your agenda that you are not sure how to tackle, write it out in point form. Before you know it you will be able to identify what the best way to tackle this project is.
You would be surprised at how long some of these tasks actual take. How many times have we all said, "I can't start that now, there is no way I have enough time!" Well when a plan is laid out, half the work is already done.
My husband makes fun of me that I need to know what I am doing for the next six months. Well in some situations, he is right. But this is one of the many things that I work on, being more spontaneous! Is it spontaneous when you schedule the time to do something spontaneous?
I know that many Moms’ out there have lists and to do things coming at them like a firing squad while they are in the shower, on the phone, driving... the places are endless. How is one supposed to remember all of this? I take pride in my iPhone! There are so many Apps to help out our everyday.
There are times that I actually think about going back to my daytimer, just in case something happened to my phone! But the thought of lugging around a book again vs. my fun little phone does not excite me. So for the time being, my life, MY ENTIRE LIFE, is kept on my phone! I am a faithful backer upper! I've learnt that lesson before in the past!
Lists of any sort, grocery, to do lists, only work when it works for you! Set time out each day to organize it. You may only need
thirty seconds, and you may need time each week to map it out, but once you get into a routine of doing it, I promise you that it will change your life!
