IMG_0161As it relates to your to-do list, remember the phrase, “Only what must be done today.” and I promise the habit of a to-do list will stick with you for life.

Oftentimes people get excited about organization. The thought of becoming more efficient and having purpose each day is inspiring. Many begin this journey; create a to-do list for a few days, a few weeks and things are going great! In fact, you’re so down with this system, you decide to add even more things to your list and that’s where disappointment sets in. You see, your to-do list is just like a diet. Crash diets don’t work. Gradually improving your habits does.

Practice the art of editing your list! Editing your list down to only what MUST be done today will ensure your success.

Resist! Never add more than what must be done that day. The remainder of your tasks should stay on your “This week” or “This quarter” list.

Edit down your list. Remove the item you added today that honestly, you’d love to get to, but you and I both know the likelihood is slim and you have more important fish to fry.  Build in some wiggle room. Double the time you estimate most tasks will take. This will ensure your success and create a habit that builds confidence and momentum for the days ahead.

Looking forward to hearing your comments!


Here and Now

IMG_2551Opportunities Are Here and Now!

There are more opportunities now than ever imaginable and that is both thrilling and daunting! How do you decide what to do when anything is possible?

This is where determining your priorities become so important! Once you know what really matters to you – decisions become easy.

There have been times in my life when I have been presented with really exciting opportunities and have decided to turn them down and wait for another time because they were in conflict with my life priorities. I know that another opportunity will present itself in time, but moreover, I understand that when I am living life according to my priorities, I will feel content and confident in my decisions.

While the outcome is important and achieving our goals is amazing. The process of working towards goals should be awarding as well! Ever day should be an amazing adventure when you are living life according to your priorities.
