Ok so its almost 2015! How do you feel? How was 2014 for you? Have you actually taken the time yet to sit and reflect on what happened in 2014? What can you do to make 2015 better? Well for me I had a FABULOUS 2014 of course, but I know that in 2015 I want it to be better! So I had to think about 3 things that can really help me in the new year.... So here goes....
1. Organization- I have found it to be very helpful to end each year with a end of the year purge and re-organization for the next year! I have always cleaned my office and work areas first because this is where i need to spend quiet time with my thoughts and work in peace so I want a very relaxing environment.
My personal office i am working on this week so I will share some pics of my office very soon.
Oh and trust me I will break things down and give you some awesome tips that are simple, creative, affordable and will help you stay organized throughout 2015.
2. A Plan (And planner)- Now each year I get a lovely new planner and of course like most of you my expectations for a physical planner were very high and my satisfaction of those i found always very low lol.. BUT in 2014 I was introduced to the lovely Passion Planner and OH EM GEEEEE i fell completely in love with this planner.
I often can feel overwhelmed when I look at a full calendar and have to carry it everywhere with me. I use my icalendar on my phone to keep track of the appointments I have but my planner is dear to me and now i can really plan based on what i need to achieve and put dates to it! I feel i am being much more productive. It helped me create a plan for the year and break down the steps i need to get there so instead of planning now... I passion plan...
(If you have not heard of the planner PLEASE do yourself a favor and check out the website and look at the beautiful design of the planner. You can even download a PDF version and use this method I like which is stapling the pages to a manilla folder. )
Now go kick 2015's butt!
