If you have been around for awhile you might know that each week we pick a theme that helps us focus and move into places that need our attention. This week the theme is Organization – not like an organization but more like, organizing myself.
I am hell-bent on overcoming my obstacles and for the last few months I have invested time meditating and journaling with the goal of clearly identifying my biggest obstacles. Settling into our theme this week, Organization, a little voice in my head is praying, “please, let me get this right this time, let me take the time it takes to organize, plan and schedule my workflow to be most productive!” That little voice just taught me that THIS is my biggest obstacle! Magical how the universe serves up just what I need right on time.
Let it be known that I am committed to create a schedule that allows for the satisfaction of success, while resulting in having the most fun and leaving the hurrying and stress of always feeling like there are not enough hours in the day, behind.
I mean, let’s get real, we know how much time we have. We know that having a plan helps guide us to our goals. We know that unexpected shit does happen, so this really shouldn’t be hard, right?
The other day someone told me that they actually imagine how long a task will take them and then budget twice that much time on their calendar to accomplish said task. This idea sounds really healthy. It has been a really long time since I was able to cross every item on my list off and feel finished with my work. The idea of having that level of clarity and satisfaction and knowing it is right there for me to have, has me reconnoitering my expectations and planning my days like never before.
While my commitment to create the life of my dreams keeps teaching me all sorts of fresh and unexpected things, this new awareness feels super duper relieving! Realizing that organization is my biggest obstacle comes as no surprise. People have been bringing my lack of it, to my attention, since I can remember.
So here we go!
Are you interested in traveling this path with me?
If you are anything like me it is a little scary to confront issues and commit to making the change needed to move far beyond a place that has limited us for ages. All the reading I have done, the learning and introspection has taught me that in the most vulnerable places we find the most strength and opportunity. Since this journey began, there has been an ongoing search for obstacles keeping me from creating global shift and full-on financial freedom. All the while this block was right in the middle of every single day!
Have you ever done that?
Have you ever searched and searched for something to find later that it was with you the whole time? This is where I am today. Right where I was in fourth grade when my homework was never remembered, not to bring it in, but to actually do it. As soon as the school door shut behind me my focus zoomed to much more engaging activities. I have always been distractible and beginning today, as this blog post is typed, my life is shifting. My schedule will be planned, organized and attainable. I will be focused, prepared and confident going into everyday with my work done and my headspace firmly affixed on my goals. Are you with me? Scroll down and let me know. Let me know if you have systems for staying organized to share. More on my system as it falls into place.
To start off I have post-it notes across the top of my desk with each day of the week with assigned tasks for each day. As the days continue, I am seeing places where things aren’t getting accomplished so shifts are made assuring the planned tasks get done. After a couple weeks, I think my routine will become ingrained in a way that will allow for efficiency and completion. So excited!
