SAY NO TO THE EXCUSE “I am too busy” .
I believe you prioritize what you want to get done first. Meaning if you’re too busy to do something, you don’t want to do it.
WHAT’S BEEN REALLY HELPING ME WITH GETTING RID OF THIS EXCUSE IS THREE THINGS:
1.) Laying everything out the night before:
This includes weird things you wouldn’t think about: like GG crackers, full outfit, sunglasses, purse packed, vitamins out, toothbrush & skincare routine ready to go, & my water tumbler even out and ready. Here’s the thing, they’re laid out strategically though. For instance, my clothes are laid out right where they should be, you know? All kitchen stuff is organized in a little corner. Purse is packed by the door. SO I CAN FLY OUT THE DOOR and not feel overwhelmed or busy in the morning. FAIL TO PLAN, PLAN TO FAIL. Ya, we’re going back to kindergarten apparently today!
2.) Google Calendar-ing Workouts: YOU KNOW THIS ALREADY BUT it deserves a repeat mention: Ok so, if anything happened to my phone’s Google calendarApp, I’d cry a couple of Lauren Conrad tears. Really though. Every morning before I start my day, I pull up Google Calendar& it’s perfectly color coordinated with times, names, & conference dial-in info. EASY. I like how it goes start to finish & guides you through the whole day. Plus the colors are cute & coordinated. AKA meetings= pink.
3.) Batching projects: You know I won’t look at my email unless I’m on a Treadmill OR I do one hour in the morning & one to two hours at night. DM and Snapchat messages now are even batched. It’s easier than returning them throughout the day. Don’t kill me, but I even batch text messages. I do them all at once, once a day. This works VERY well for someone like me. Let me know if you want a more in-depth post on batching. I’m becoming a BATCHING QUEEN. It’s a thing.
