How many of us feel overwhelmed by everything we have to get done in a day/week/month? *raises hand* I know I do. I have a bad habit of putting things off to the last minute, forgetting about stuff that needs to be done, or stalling during the day and not getting everything done that needs to be done.
So, I’ve started doing several different things. First, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m using Habitica. It’s a fun way to hold myself accountable, because you have to check in every day and it gives you something visual to interact with in order to remember what it is you need to do.
I also post to do lists over on Tumblr (using this image actually) and update them regularly through the day so I can see what I’m supposed to be doing. This also gives me some accountability because I do have followers on Tumblr who will ask me how the day went and did I forget to update the blog post? It’s actually gotten me thinking of things I want to do and need to do.
Third, I just got a physical planner to help me jot down a daily/weekly/monthly schedule. I’m hoping that the act of writing things down will also help me remember them. Getting organized and being more productive during my day are the major goals of these endeavors.
I’ll be giving updates periodically on how successful I am with this. I won’t blog about it each week, but maybe once or twice a month. So we’ll see how it all goes.
Everyone remember you’re awesome and I appreciate each and every one of you.
