Engage, Inspire & Connect
Hi! I’m here… ugh, I know, I’m totally late posting my blog. It’s 7 p.m., and I’m just sitting at my computer. I could tell you I didn’t have time to write, but the truth is, my blog idea changed about five times during the week, and well, I thought I could sit down, and the words would flow like an open tap. It didn’t happen. #momlife got the best of me, and instead of brainstorming, I poured my energy into everything else. What a week! Spring soccer wrapped up, we had ball hockey practices and games, and we celebrated two birthdays. By this morning, I was moving like a sloth, but I still focused on my to-do list on my desktop calendar. It's how I stay organized.
How do you get your ‘work’ done by the end of the day? Do you file it in your brain and hope you'll remember, scan your notes on your phone, or manually check it off?
There’s something satisfying about using a pen-to-paper method and crossing it off as I go.
Depending on deadlines, here’s an example of what my calendar might look like:
2. Write daily word count
If you want a productive day, write down two or three things you want to accomplish. Note how you feel when you finish them. By the end of the week, I bet you’ll achieve more than you thought and feel great about it, too.
