This week’s BOLD LAW..” If it’s not on your schedule , it doesn’t exist “
Do you ever have a list of ” to-do’s” that you write down and want to get done today ? And then, at the end of the day, some , or most all of them are still staring at you ? Yeah, me too ! Then I rewrite them down for the next day and it repeats itself…over and over.
The problem with that is that I did not make it important enough to assign a time to do it.I did not put it into my schedule. If i just block off a certain time frame for just ONE of those “to – do’s ” , it gets done. You would not blow off an appointment , would you ? Of course not ! So, if it’s that important , schedule it with yourself, no interruptions and get it done !
Now that we have so much more time at home these days, it’s more important than ever to put this into your schedule. For example, spend quality time with each member of the family, play a game together , walk the dog together, do that chore that you say you’ve always going to do , clean out that closet or declutter the garage….call that friend !…and, here’s a BIG one..do something nice for someone…even you ! Yes, you ! Take care of yourself and love yourself first today !
Put THAT one into your schedule today. While you do a random act of kindness for someone else today, schedule a little ” you ” time today for yourself as well . Whether it’s journaling ( which this email is for me everyday) , meditation, exercise, saying some affirmations, reading something you’re interested in or enjoy, or taking a much needed nap (!)..it’s okay, place that into your schedule and watch how much more you accomplish from your list !
Tomorrow…an affirmation from a friend that you can say to yourself everyday…
