There’s nothing worse than rushing or that subsequent feeling of “Too much to do, and not *enough* time to do it all”! I totally cannot stand it! I used to rush everywhere; from appointments, to fashion shows, to house-warmings and client meetings (sometimes forgetting certain appointments *eeek*)…it was a total mess!
Thankfully I’ve experienced the power of the Daily Planner, and how a few simple changes can make a world of difference in my fabulous life! Being able to function day in and day out with peace of mind and minimized stress was an absolute must for me! Now…I share my “secrets” with you:
1) GET IT! Get an event Planner to keep your life in order! Make sure it is a current 12 month planner that gives you a broad view of the month, and follows with weekly/daily pages to book your events, appointments, lunch dates…etc! Writing space is a must!
2) USE IT! Dust is so out this season! A few days before the start of each month, plan out and write in the important dates…then take it to a weekly/daily view and plan out your week. Grab a cup of coffee and get going! (Sundays usually work best for me)
3)WRITE IT DOWN! I can’t stress this enough! Keeping a mental note of your life is not “that business”, and from my experiences with my clients..those who have tried this most often find themselves overwhelmed and stressed! So Start now; grab your favorite pen (and colorful highlighters) and write your map/plan on paper!
4) UPDATE IT! When things change, or need to be added, be sure to address it in a timely fashion! don’t let it linger in the recesses of your mind. Remember, mental notes often cause stress and unfortunately can be forgotten! Update your planner immediately 🙂
5) REVIEW! A few moments before you take it down at night, or before you begin your day in the morning… give yourself at least 5 to 10 minutes to review what is on your agenda for that day! This way you can pace yourself and allocate your time wisely through out your day… and when it is all said and done you’ll enjoy that feeling of accomplishment.. knowing that you did it all!
Don’t waste another moment! Go grab a trendy yet practical planner, a sturdy pencil, vibrant highlighters and GET TO IT! Trust me your life will never be the same!
Keep it stylish (and organized)
P.S. Let me know of your success….can’t wait 🙂 xoxo
