What is stopping me from getting organized?
For most areas of my life, the only thing holding me back from achieving my goals is me. I know what I should do – what I could do – but when it comes right down to it, excuses slip in and override my good intentions… Glynnis Whitwer
School has been in session for a month or so now – fall will arrive soon and we will need to adjust to change again. So, with all this change, both inside and outside of the house, there are so many things that stop us from getting organized. In most cases, we are usually are the largest roadblock to achieving our goals.
Let’s take a moment in October to gain a new perspective and refocus your energy on what’s really important to you. A good place to start is by being more purposeful about how you spend your time. When you find yourself lacking confidence and over-committed, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Here are a few priorities to keep in mind:
- Be reliable
- Be punctual
- Be reliable
- Be creative
Too often, we schedule so many activities into one day or one week that before it’s half over, we are exhausted and stressed. Many of these activities may not be that important to us, but for one reason or another, we committed to them, and now we’re obliged to follow through.
QUICK TIP: Take some time to really look at your calendar and consider how you want and need to spend your time. Bring more order and calmness into your life by simplifying your calendar and making time to do the things that are really important to you.
