I may seem like I have it all together sometimes, maybe even most times. But let me tell you, just because I can be super organized in one area of my life, does NOTTTT mean that I am like that in all areas!
1. The guest bathroom is spotless, the master bathroom however could use some serious attention! I even have cute little jars for the bathroom everyone else uses, and Q-tips out of the box for the ones I use! Why? I don’t know! hahaha
2. The refrigerator could deff be more organized, but the wine rack is neatly set up with whites on the left and reds on the right.
3. I have binders and books all over the house, but I know EXACTLY where my coaching binder is, and ALL of those papers and neatly placed inside.
I did a post a while back on how I can easily fall asleep at night, and one of those secrets was my to-do list that I quickly make at night before I go to bed. I am going to tell you right now, there is ABSOLUTELY no way around making a to do list, the only thing you can do is make a BETTER one!
To-do lists are easy, literally besides breathing they should be up there on the easy list! If you don’t know what you need to get done the next day, then maybe you need to reevaluate what you WANT to do each day. I know that sometimes it is hard to know EXACTLY what is going to be happening. I don’t have kids yet, but I know that days don’t always go as planned when you are a parent. Which it totally fine, I am not saying to have every second planned, but you do need A plan! I have always made a list and most of the time got most of it done, but THIS is awesome! I am reading Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy, and he as a ABCDE system. It is just pure genius! I make a little graphic below to map it out for you and just break it down.
A tasks are your must do. You MUST go to work, otherwise you will get fired, so that needs to be on your list and have an A next to it.
B tasks are the ones you should do,but its okay if you don’t. You will not fall completely behind if you don’t do it. Maybe going through your email 3-4 times a day would be a B task,
C tasks are tasks that you can go without. basically time wasters. Personal business while at work, extended lunch breaks with coworkers, personal phone calls.
D tasks you should delegate to someone else. This is a task that you can outsource and it will still get done, while freeing up YOUR time for your A tasks!
E tasks you can just eliminate right now. Most you will continue to do out of habit, but there are not helping you gain anything in your job. If you get rid of these tasks it will not make a difference in your day
Here is an example of my to do list for TODAY!
