Simple Planning

DSC_0002Keeping up with work, school, friends, family, blogging, sports and much more can be really tricky.  But a little bit of planning can go a long way.

A note book and a planner is all you’ll need. You can  use the apps on your computer or your phone, but I prefer to write my ideas down. I usually write all  of my ideas and different drafts in my note book and once I got everything sorted out  I put it all in order in my planner. I also try to plan my planning sessions cause I don’t want to end up sorting my week out on a Sunday night at 11h pm. Sadly it happens a little too often because first I am the queen of procrastination and second I seem to get all of my inspiration, good ideas and motivation at night. I also try really hard to follow the plans and goals I set myself for the week. The more I follow my to do list, the more I get used to my routine and things will end up getting done by themselves. The best ways I found to fight procrastination are

a) Staying motivated as much as possible by reminding myself why I am doing all of it and what my goals are.

b) Taking little steps. I try to split my work into small tasks and if afterwards I still don’t feel like starting, I’ll split the small tasks into smaller ones. Then I challenge myself to complete 5 or 10 mini tasks and it usually gets me started.

These are the little tips and tricks I usually use on a daily basis and hopefully they’ll help you out too!

Kisses,

Valerie
