For so long I was Miss Disorganized! Literally. I would wake up in the morning and just go. I didn't have an agenda. I knew what important things needed to get done. But I spent a lot of my time spinning around in circles, doing this and that and not really accomplishing anything. I was all ambition and no execution. Is it just me? Do you know what I'm talking about?
Lately I've been setting my alarm at night and planning out what needs to get done during the day, and I can't begin to tell you how much more I am getting done. I have a lot of goals and without writing them down and scheduling my time, there is no way I am going to accomplish them.
The first thing on my to-do list is to spend time with God. I head straight to the coffee pot to make a cup of coffee and then head over to JoyceMeyer.Org to watch her daily broadcast. I then usually end up praying for everybody; my family, myself, my neighbors, collegues, friends, enemies, facebook and twitter friends.. everybody. After I do this I am so calm and collected and everything just seems to flow and run smoothly. Most of the time my daughter is up by now and she watches Joyce with me. I pray out loud, so she always adds her in Jesus' name, Amen. lol I love it!
I then get dressed and because I like to get some kind of workout in during the day and I don't neccessarily have to leave the house, I put on some jogging pants and a cute t-shirt or a sweat suit. Something nice, yet comfortable. I still have to stay cute for my husband you know ;) I also get the girl dressed, (after me). I have to make sure I'm together before I can get anything else together.
Then I start tackling my to-do list. Lessons during the day, cleaning during lessons and during breaks, updating my facebook and twitter statuses, etc.... One thing I have learned that is invaluable is having my notebook and pen close by. If I have a great blog idea, youtube video idea or anything, I jot that sucker down! If I don't, I'll have another bright idea that got away from me! And I'm not having it in 2012!!
With all of that said, I am loving my new life of organization! I am officially hooked on getting things done in a calm and collected manner :)
What do you do to make sure your days run smooth and that you are meeting your goals? I'd love to know. Any tips?
Always wishing you success in Love and Life~
