How to have fun planning when you’re the creative type

When it comes to planning, do you balk at writing out lists? Personally, I love lists and I make them all the time, but I know there are people who will resist making them. It’s not their thing.

I get it, I really do.

There are also times when a list just isn’t going to cut it, or there are too many different lists needed for a single project that it becomes overwhelming, and who wants that?

So, for those of you who want to set a goal and know what steps to take, all without making a list or too many lists, this creative tool is for you. Continue reading “How to have fun planning when you’re the creative type”

What does your ideal life look like?

Be honest – can you really picture your ideal life?

Most of us can’t because we haven’t taken the time to know exactly what all of that entails.

It’s a lot easier to know the things we don’t want in our lives, and we are quite verbal about those! But the things we do want, well that’s another thing.

How often have you said something like… Continue reading “What does your ideal life look like?”

How to prioritize the steps needed to reach your goal

How many times have you decided to do something and set yourself a goal, then got overwhelmed with the things you needed to do, not knowing what to do first, second, third, and so on…. then just gave up on the whole idea altogether?

I’m going to show you a very simple, very easy-to-use tool to use every time you set a goal for yourself. Continue reading “How to prioritize the steps needed to reach your goal”

Making a plan that works

The first step to creating change is knowing what you want. Knowing exactly what you want. This is key…knowing exactly what you want. We get tied up in knowing what we don’t want, but that isn’t going to help create the change we seek.

It’s like this. If you decide to take a trip but haven’t picked a destination, then you’re wandering aimlessly. Without direction. And while you’ll end up somewhere, it may not be where you want to be!

The same applies to your life, your goals, your lifestyle…. your everything.

Without knowing what you’re working towards, moving towards, you’re going through life aimlessly. And that’s very likely resulting in an unfulfilling life. In your career, your relationships, your home, your social life, in you.

So, the first step – know what you want. Read here for more on how to do that.

Now that you know what you want, it’s time to Plan. How are you going to make it happen? Continue reading “Making a plan that works”

Clarify – know what you want

Remember all those times you wished for something different?

You wished your job was different, or your home was different, or you just wished your life in general was different. You didn’t know what you wanted, you only knew that what you had wasn’t working, and wasn’t what you wanted.

I remember those times. In fact, I still fall victim to that way of feeling now and then!

Wishing and feeling like that doesn’t get us where we want to be. Can you guess why?

If you’re thinking it’s because there wasn’t a plan in sight, that’s partially right.

But before that is one really huge step! Continue reading “Clarify – know what you want”

The almighty list

We use lists for pretty much everything. The grocery list. The list of errands. The To-Do list. The various lists used when going on vacation – now that’s a big one, and there would likely be many things forgotten if we didn’t use that one!

Back to school list. Project lists. Honey Do list, aka known as the home repairs list. Christmas shopping list. The list for Santa!

The list of lists is endless. As long as there are things to be done, there will be lists.

My all time favourite time management tool is The List. There’s something about that feeling you get when you can tick an item off or cross it off. A sense of accomplishment. Continue reading “The almighty list”
