So I have definitely been neglecting this space-and that needs to change!
I'm hoping that 2015 bring a sense of balance to my life. Balance in a sense that you can't fully dive into any one thing, you need to give all of the things (or people!) you love in your life equal attention.
I'm always neglecting things that I think take too long (my nails), that I can do later (like laundry), that take too much concentration (creating new patterns/products for my shop), and especially things that don't need to be done every day (like dusting and sweeping- yuck).
In Shanghai I was always good at managing my time, and I think it was because I had LOADS to do all the time so I HAD to be organised. Plus we had an ayi (cleaner) to come twice a week-so that helped tremendously!! Now that I don't have much to do, I find myself slacking off because I keep telling myself that I have loads of time to do it, so it doesn't need to get done right this second.
I think it's never too late to change your habits, and you don't even have to wait until Monday. Gasp!! So here's the plan, I'm going to try a new planner and really organise my time more efficiently.
I've downloaded the Day Designer free pdf planning page. I've been drooling over their planners for months and they always seem to be sold out. I checked their website the other day and saw that they have a free pdf page to print and use to see if you'd like their planner. It. Is. Awesome.
Taking a quick glance, I like that it's a day by day planner, and not a whole weeks view. It has enough space for your top three tasks that you want to get done for the day (making you really think about your goals for the day), an hour by hour planning section, a to-do list, a gratitude section, a space to plan dinner, and even a place to jot down things you need to download ALL ON ONE PAGE!
Above is a photo of it, but really- download it for yourself from here and get to planning your day!
Seriously. Genius. I really hope that I can snag one of these planners when they come out in March and April!!
I'll let you know how it goes and if I like it or not!!
