Sometimes we need to take some steps back, take a look at where we are, where we want to be, and what we need to do to get there. This helps us clear away the fog that builds up on our lenses, refocus ourselves to drive towards our goals, and to set adequate steps to take to reach those goals.
1.) Set concrete goals.
2.) Clear out the clutter.
3.) Write out the tasks that need to be completed.
4.) Schedule out tasks and routines.
5.) Focus on one task at a time.
I feel stronger, calmer, with a clear mind ready to move forward towards where I want to be. I have spent the last few days editing my blog editorial calendar, cleaning out my planner, scheduling my fitness routines, and writing out my daily mindfulness tasks.
1.) Get Fit Again – Not that I completely fell off the wagon, but I’m not where I want to be or where I know I can be. I scheduled exercises for every morning, set goals for packing lunches, and will be working more gym time into my week.
2.) Blogging – Updated my editorial calendar, scheduled blogging time, spent my downtime getting ahead with some posts.
3.) Painting/Art Time – Picked the upcoming art shows I want to apply for, wrote the deadlines on the calendar, and scheduled in art time each week.
Allow some flexibility into your schedule and your routines. Allow yourself to be forgiving of yourself if you slide or miss a task. Keep your goals in eyesight, write them down and post them where you see them frequently. Celebrate your successes.
Now go kick butt and make the magic happen!
