How To Get Organized - Tips From A Beginner.

Let’s get real. How many times does a day end and you realize you’ve pushed the same task over to the next day, and the next day, and the next day?... Procrastination is a killer and I am a victim…But, we do it to ourselves!

Ok enough whining.

The truth is, there is plenty of time in a day. I know we all have very different commitments, expectations and jobs, but there are ways to stay on top of it all.

Tip 1 – Put Away Your Phone.

This is a no brainer. Your phone is the devil of procrastination. Always dinging and calling your name out to refresh news headlines, Instagram, Pinterest, or whatever your poison is. It will all be there later, when you actually have time to decompress at the end of a busy day.

Tip 2 – Lists.

We love lists. Even if you write and re-write the same list just slightly modified, it works! It allows you to have a visual of what your daily/weekly tasks are. Plus, having a visual of crossing out accomplished items gives you a good reason to pat yourself on the back. You may see a trend in what task is always left for last. Maybe force yourself to do the most dreaded task first next time and see how you feel. Another little tip I like is to cross out tasks with a highlighter, rather than a pen. This allows you to still see what’s written and makes the accomplished item more significant.

Tip 3 – Be Realistic.

Don’t expect to meal prep for an entire year, or create a full fashion line in one evening. Set small, realistic goals. If you happen to surpass what you initially planned then HECK YA! Grab yourself a beverage and celebrate.

Tip 4 – Take A Breather.

Hey, if you have a day where you feel like you just can’t focus, allow yourself to take a break. I know for some people this isn’t an option, as we all have different expectations and demands. All I ask is that you don’t get down or beat yourself up if you have a lazy day. We’re all human and we do A LOT. Binge watch that show, eat those fries, take that nap.

FYI - while writing this post I stopped to look at my phone five times…. I’m still working on listening to my own advice. Cheers!

new-year-res-4Happy New Year jokers!!  As per usual, everyone has a subconscious list of all the things they would like to do better in the new year.  We all have an internal collection of the things we didn't accomplish and want another crack at.  Is that bad?  I don't think so...

Start-again-new-beginning-picture-quoteIt's the same type of feeling you have when you wake up in the morning.  It's a new beginning, it's a fresh start.  Yesterday you didn't get the laundry done.  Today, you will.  Just a part of being human.  I have heard so many people say, "why wait till the new year to try to be better?", "new years resolutions suck, and are stupid.  be better all year round...".  Really??

tumblr_mysfyskeRe1sg08xxo1_500I can't say I totally agree because I think it's in our innate nature to 'want'...  We want more money, more time, more, everything.  Just like I said before, whenever I wake up, the new day (and the new sun) makes me think of a list of things that I would like to accomplish.  Even if it just the laundry, I'm positive that those types of small goals are just as life changing as the big ones we make on the first of every January.

That's the fresh perspective...
