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.

I read this great statement once that resonated with me and hit me like a bolt of lightning….. Continue reading “22 ways to practice self-care”

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”

Your tribe

‘We can’t choose our family but we can choose our friends’. Isn’t that how the saying goes, or something close to that? I could argue that we can indeed choose our family, depending on how you want to define family, but that’s not the point of today’s post 😊 Rather, it’s about choosing our friends, our tribe.
