Think about it: When you don’t plan ahead for something that’s important, life can get pretty hectic. Knowing what you need to do, and when you need to have it done by, to accomplish your dreams is a huge thing to learn. It’s something I’m still working on learning. Take this A to Z challenge for example. I knew I wanted to take part in it, but I also knew I would (Lord willing) be in Europe for part of the month, and possibly in Asia for the other part. Therefore I started writing and scheduling the posts in January. I’m writing this particular post on February 17th. Pretty cool, right?
Another ‘planning’ step I’ve been trying to incorporate into my life is writing out a list of 8-10 things that I need to do the next day. (Writing this post was actually on that list and the last thing I need to check off.) It helps me to wake up in the morning with focus. Our minds can subconsciously work on stuff, so if we program ourselves to know what to do, it’s a lot easier to actually do it!
What about you? Do you like planning ahead of time?
