My daily adventures in writing things down

If you’re at all like me, you write everything down and there’s so much that the notes seem overwhelming!

My focus this week is to simplify and uncomplicate my processes so that my projects are easier to track. I often take on too much at once, which of course doesn’t help at all. Focusing more of my attention on less work means my individual processes and projects will get more attention.  This has felt amazing so far. Whenever I feel myself reaching out for more, or planning something new, I stop and refocus. I am immediately drawn back to the project I am currently working on. 

I am trying to make less notes as well, and to keep them all in one place. This process is made much more simple by having one binder I write things down in. All of my notes go in one place, and are broken down into different categories or sections as needed. 

What simple note taking system do you have that works? Have you ever used a bullet journal? I love this method. I’ve never found a system that’s already created that i love, so I work off of a daily template and just write as i go. I still pre-plan my weeks and schedule, and tasks etc. What really helps a lot is pre-planning content, and time blocking …..although I often find that the time I have blocked off is never enough, and I usually run over schedule when I’m really inspired. I usually go with the flow when that happens because I don’t want to lose whatever awesome inspiration has just come over me. 

What are your secrets in tracking and pre-planning? I’d love to hear them!

Simplfying Life

What a beautiful day.

Today I have the clarity to write down some goals on what I want my life to look like. I’m very excited to be sharing a new project with my mom. Our goal is to simplify life and live with what we need. No more impulse purchases, buying things that aren’t needed etc. I plan to downsize and sell some of the things that aren’t serving any purpose in my home, as these things take up space and create clutter. I want to have a simple, easy routine to follow which will make life a lot easier. I don’t like coming home to a lot of responsibility, different bank accounts and memberships to websites and stores…..this all creates mind clutter for me, and stresses me out. Continue reading
