#Day25- Make A Plan

“Planning is bringing the future into the present so you can do something about it now.”- Alan Lakein

I have so many ideas in my head that they start to become jumbled and then I am unable to prioritize what needs my attention and when. It’s like my brain needs to be pulled apart and put into separate sections so that I am able to clearly see what all it is I want to accomplish.

Seeing as though that isn’t feasible I figured I would do the next best thing, get a planner. It’s something about writing things down that makes it easier to deal with. It forces you to remember for one and it also helps you rearrange it’s importance in your head.

Today I found the cutest planner in Target and what stood out the most about it to me was that it asked me to jot down all the things that I wanted to accomplish in the next year (July 2017-June 2018).

While it is still fairly early I took some time to go through the planner and write down as much as I could. From the very beginning it asks about my plans, my goals and has me set dates in which I plan to accomplish those goals.

While it has the regular monthly calendars on each tab, it also has space for a daily schedule. There is ask you to list your top three priorities and reminds you to do those things first.

Planning has been the step in my thought process that seems to be the most overlooked. I have so many ideas but don’t put in the work or take the necessary steps to make it happen. With the help of my tangible planner and my will to succeed I know the next year will be one to remember.

Often times we find ourselves hoping to following our minds rather than our hearts and we soon realize it's not the case. we get so caught up in our feelings and allow the stream of tears to sway us into making short term decisions that has long term effects. Sometimes we need to take a step back from ourselves and look at things from the outside. Ask ourselves is it worth it? Will I be ok with my decision tomorrow? Once we decide that it is worth losing we need to breathe in release and let go! No looking back, no regrets, just high hopes for the future, less frowns and more smiles.
