  1. Write a VISION for your day, week or year.

Many people think they are just too busy to make plans so we are offering the simplest of tips that can really make a difference in your life. Take 2-3 minutes and just write down your vision for the day or week.  Let it be 5 words or less. Here are some examples –

  • Today I will be hopeful
  • Today I choose action
  • I know what matters most
  • This week is about family
  • This week I celebrate me
  • I am moving slowly
  • I am grateful for life

Then try the same thing for your year! The most powerful time of the year is your birthday! Write a simple phrase of 5 words or less that encompasses what you most want in the next year. Make it visual and keep it with you throughout the year.

For a powerful and life changing vision recorded in your own voice see Ideal Life Vision. This tool will transform your life.

Time Tip and Tool – DO IT

Write down the 3 MOST IMPORTANT to do’s – and let that be enough…

We measure our life energy, our being and our doing by measuring time.  We all have the same “24 hours” in each day. How is it that some people are naturally able to be more present and accomplish what is most important while others struggle?

Using the Clear & SIMPLE System of SEE IT, MAP IT, DO IT, we can show you how to make time tangible and manageable! Here is DO IT, the our last of three blogs helping you get things done and bringing joy back in your day. Check out SEE IT and MAP IT.

DO IT – Now we come to the DO IT Step which can feel overwhelming. How can I possibly fit everything into my day, much less make it simple?

Start by taking only 5 minutes at the start and end of each day to ask what are the 3 MOST IMPORTANT TASKS for your personal and work life – the ones that only you can do? Then write them done in a simple notebook, on a yellow pad, in your smart phone notebook or app (try Wunderlist), on a 3×5 card or even a post it note. At the end of the day, look back and celebrate getting those 3 things done! Or you will get to notice how you got distracted so you can practice again the next day.

This simple practice will help you discriminate what needs really needs your attention today. Along with the sense of accomplishment for getting done what matters most to YOU!

Clear & SIMPLE, Accomplishment

Joyfully getting things done!

Time Tip and Tool – MAP IT

Plan your week by your ROLES rather than massive lists.

We measure our life energy, our being and our doing by measuring time.  We all have the same “24 hours” in each day. How is it that some people are naturally able to be more present and accomplish what is most important while others struggle?

Using the Clear & SIMPLE System of SEE IT, MAP IT, DO IT, we can show you how to make time tangible and manageable! This blog focuses on the MAP IT step for time – check out the SEE IT and DO IT steps.

MAP IT – Most of us avoid planning our day, week or year because it feels overwhelming even thinking about all we have to do.  We have a simpler approach that our clients find easy and joyful to do.  We suggest you try this out for planning out your week.

Make a simple list of the ROLES you have first –

  • Self Care
  • Partner
  • Parent
  • Home Care
  • Work
  • Family & Friends
  • Community

 

Then ask what do I need/want to do this week for this role?  It is much easier for your brain to sort the to do’s according to the roles you play in your daily life.  Remember the MAP (Make A Plan) IT step makes a difference. The mere act of writing something down allows your brain to release and let go of holding that information.

One of our favorite Day Planners that is already set up with seven columns for your roles and the days of the week is Planner Pad. Their brilliant format allows you to funnel your to-do list from general to specific, all within your calendar week!  Or just use a spiral notebook or yellow pad – the point is write it down.

Planner Pad even offers digital apps for all of your devices! Check out their website for a video on how it works.

However you map your time, make sure it works for YOU!
