Welcome to my 5 5 5 series. The objective of this exercise is to write five lines five times a week for five weeks about anything. Habits don’t create themselves, after all. The frequency & length remains from post to post, but the topics will be varied. Read my introduction here.
Wk 2 Post 3
The heart of the matter is getting organized, because until you do, you won’t be able to take the internal pressure of not knowing what you’re doing much longer.
Start a notebook for listing out everything you know you have to do between today and the end of the year, writing small progress notes in the margins, and using tabs if you need to.
Map everything out on a calendar using color coded pens to keep things clear and time sensitive.
Set alerts on your phone & stick updated post-it reminders on the bathroom mirror, the refrigerator, on the shoe closet door, and on your remote control.
Tell your friends, “I am soooo over being overwhelmed,” and need to bow out of happy hour this month because you’ve decided to “put on my big girl panties and finally get my sh!t done.”
