Keep a Journal.
The act of writing, in your own hand is becoming a lost art for many. Make a journal. Use a notebook and a pen. List what you need to do and where you want to go. Even draw figures and charts and circle what is important. If nobody understands it but YOU That's OK! maybe even better.
There is something about sitting down and thinking about how we spend our time and where we need to improve and where we want to move forward in life - and then putting it down on paper, that can be a start of something that is often easy to say but harder to do- ACTION. That's what we need - Make an ACTION PLAN!
Taking ACTION means to start TODAY.
Now say your journal finds a continuing theme like for example- a need to get better organized and to simplify ..
That journal states the case. The thing to do is to recognize the problem. The journal forces us to WRITE it DOWN - and then it is up to US to ACT.
But here is something. You don't have to do it all in one day.
An action plan may be to do ONE ACT of organization per day/ Hopefully once started, that may spur THREE acts of organization in a day and maybe it would overcome (over time) the TWO acts of our naturally unorganized lifestyle???
well maybe? it's worth a TRY!
But that is just an example. Do you think maybe it applies to me?
Nobody escapes. Over time, foilbles of life find us that we have to fight and overcome. NOBODY escapes it. WE ALL can improve in some areas of our life. Maybe we need to try to be kinder to others and follow the golden rule.
Sometimes I wish I could write an action plan for other people. For example, I still see a lot of smokers around. If I were a smoker. I would make a plan to quit and put it down. I would suggest trying electronic cigaretts for some who cold turkey just does not work. If you don't know what an electronic cigarette us - Google it. I have heard people say it WORKS and is the new smoking of the FUTURE for some.
That is just another example. No matter WHAT is up with you-
Keep a journal. It will help.
Well, stay tuned. tomorrow I may post about something else.
