This is a motto that I hear frequently in my twelve step program, and it came up today in my morning readings. It is very appropriate for where I am today.
I tend to take on a lot of stuff – I’m a yes person. Yes, I’ll do “this”, and yes, I’ll do “that”. And then I have no time for myself (or my family) and I end up overwhelmed. Instead of focusing on my overwhelmed feelings, I am writing a list of what I need to get done, and I am taking action and checking items off of my list. I am suiting up and showing up.
Today I am working on setting goals and coming up with a game plan for the first three months of the year, personally and professionally. I know I don’t have a huge attention span, so I am setting a timer and working on a specific project or task for anywhere between 15 min – 1 hour. I also scheduled in a yoga class and a twelve step meeting tonight.
By breaking down my ginormous list of sh*t I need to get done, and taking action/physically checking items off of my to-do list, I feel less overwhelmed and more productive. I am making phone calls and scheduling meetings that I have been putting off so that I am moving closer to my goals that I am setting for my business and myself.
This time of year can bring on a multitude of emotions. If you’re ready to suit up and show up and would like some guidance, please click here and schedule a discovery call with me!
