There is nothing like a new beginning to get you to face the facts and yourself. These last two months have been a roller coaster of emotions, business decisions, and more complicated stuff I will not go into. However a friend suggested scheduling out my days every week. What a HUGE difference I already feel with this new work flow! My calendar is full of time slots that allow me to tackle ongoing projects and deadlines. Before, I just had a "To Do" list and occasionally forced myself to tackle projects for a full day. But now I can spread things out in short time slots over the week. SO MUCH BETTER. I even have times lots reserved for making decisions and brainstorming about designs or issues in my business. This is key, because I often tend to think of ALL the possibilities and ideas in the world, and quickly get overwhelmed. The reality is I need to make decisions and move forward.
This is a great beginning.
