I missed ((2))!!!! Webinars last week. This was the fault of my planner. If I had a different planner this would NEVER have happened…. I’m embarrassed to say this but I even went so far as to look at different planners.
Stay Calm. Eat a doughnut. Replace the ‘broken thing.’ This is my MO of sorts. If my balls start to fall it’s not because of ME (shock face) Oh no, it’s because of something else, like my planner.
First, I realized that I was inputting too much on my day to day sections. They were crowed and this led me to missing my webinars.
I still needed/wanted to keep track of my daily word count and pages edited. I set goals weekly and monthly so well as daily in these areas so I need to ‘see’ how I’m doing.
I also need a way to keep my VA business goals in front of me.
AND there are the day to day life things, like hair appointments, library w, and exercising that I want to keep attract of.
This is A LOT for the daily space in my current planner. So I did what every Queen of Procrastination does… I jumped down the rabbit hole and spent two days looking at the all the amazing planners… watching countless YouTube videos…and joining Facebook planner groups… I came to the conclusion that my planner would work (heavy sigh as I climbed out of the rabbit hole). I just needed to shift HOW I WAS DOING IT…
This is a mindset I need to keep. I so often want a ‘new’ to replace whatever ‘thing’ is causing me the problem is …
A new character outline because my characters aren’t behaving….
New outlining software because I’m not meeting my wordcount…
And the list goes on but as with my planner it is more often than not I just need to shift my mindset to get out of the rabbit hole and make this work so I can move forward.
