Episode 29 | Tips for Planning for Success

If you were going to rate yourself in achieving what you want to achieve on a daily basis using a scale of 1-10 what would you rate yourself? If you give yourself a 10 (meaning you are doing great and achieving everything you want to in a day) congratulations! Please share your best habits and tools with us on our Instagram or Facebook page! We want to learn from you.

If you are like us, some days and some weeks are better than others. I usually write this newsletter on Monday and then edit and send it on Tuesday. I'm writing it today, the day I send it, because yesterday was probably a 4 or 5 for me in getting everything done on my list. But today is a new day. And I'm not going to let one day ruin my week. So today, I got up earlier and here I am starting fresh!  If you feel like you are off track and it is only the middle of the January, we suggest reframing it! Let go of the guilt and shame you might be feeling about not being successful in making the changes you wanted to make. Start today and take it one day at a time. 

Our podcast this week gives you a look into how we plan our weeks. We can nerd out a bit on planning so if you are resistant to all things scheduled try thinking about what habits and boundaries you can put in place to lead your best life.  Did you know that most people check their smartphones 120 times a day? What would your time be like if you cut back on social media?

Here are some of the resources we talked about:  

Apps:

Toggl - the best time tracking app we know of. Sandy has spent 30 minutes so far writing this newsletter today!  

HeadSpace - the meditation app that Jo-Anne is using to start her day.
