It’s Wednesday! It’s also hot and dry in my part of the world and that increases allergies. Mine included. I’m off the medicine that I received from the doctor, but the weather hasn’t cooperated. It would be so nice if it would rain and settle the pollen. I shouldn’t complain because we had so much rain the first part of the year. I am human, and I complain.
Today I’m working on Camp Hope by Sara Foust. I love a book that begins with excitement and carries it on through to the end of the book. This book is reading so well, and I’m anxious to get back working on it when I get through with my emails.
Is your day scheduled? I do lists. I try to make my lists in the evening before I get too tired to think. My week is usually mapped out to where I have an idea of what I need to do each week, then I shorten the list by going to each day. This helps me to stay focused on my business. When I don’t have a list, my day can easily be interrupted.
I don’t schedule a time. I list what I want to finish in a day. What I don’t finish today goes to the next day. I love to mark things off the list. I’ve done this for years, so it’s something I’m familiar with doing. When my kids were small I did this with each day’s activities. It really helped. When I worked in a management position, the same thing happened. When I make my lists, I don’t have to worry about what I’m doing. I know.
There are certain things I don’t put on my list like get up, make my bed, take my meds, eat breakfast, etc. These are routine things I do each day. You get in the habit after a while and know to do that. I do these routine things each morning. I think I’m smart enough that I don’t have to be reminded. Having a list of things to do makes my day go smoother. Try it and see if it works for you.
