Today, I pulled out my daily planner and started to make plans for 2020. I guess I have already broken resolution #1: reduce procrastination. I am procrastinating like a crazy lady! No worries, I am on it and have the situation in hand!
For the last two years I have made my own daily planners and I love it so much! I can pick the design for the cover, I can add or subtract pages, I can doodle and add stickers. Whatever I want! It’s part junk journal, part daily planner, but it mostly just lets me make lists and notes to myself in a not-so-perfect setting. It keeps my business self grounded and my creative self a small outlet of expression. So, I began work on 2020’s planner.
While I wrapped up last year’s planner, I couldn’t help but remember some of the events from things I had jotted down. It wasn’t the greatest year, but mostly good things were written down. It made me wonder how this next year would pan out. I printed off some new calendars to add to my journal and noted when certain dates would fall. And before I knew it, it felt like the whole year was rushing by!
Does that ever happen to you? It has happened to me at jobs and in college. I would plan out my week or my month and it would feel like there’s not enough time or it is flying by quickly. Maybe that is why I procrastinate. When I plan it all out, there is not enough time to do EVERYTHING I want to do, and I always want to do WAY TOO much. But, when I let things alone, it feels like I am more free and have more time to do what I want. It’s a complete lie to myself, but it feels less stressful…until deadlines are upon me and I have to face the music. So, now I have the cause of my procrastination. I must not let it effect me any longer.
And now I am off to bed. Christmas vacation is officially over and tomorrow we are all back to work and school. I have a long list of things to tackle and I am forever short on time.
Have a wonderful evening! 😀
