Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
Ending The Morning "Rat Race"!
One of my clients, a busy physician, is having some challenges with getting out of the house on time in the morning. I have never met her because all of our work has been remote, but she has put many new habits in place around organizing and she is ready to shift this pattern! Managing ourselves around time is one of the most important organizing tasks.
We talked about her morning routine and prioritizing and possibly eliminating some of her tasks. As we talked she was able to realize that some of what she does in the morning could easily be done in the evening after dinner. There were others, like making breakfast for her fourteen year old son, that were not negotiable. Our conversation led to my favorite organizing tipó"End every day prepared for the next."
Preparing ahead for the next day has so many benefits. Here are a few of them:
- No more rushing around
- Extra few minutes of sleep!
- Improved mood
- Efforts are more effective
- A huge boost in confidence
- Life's "surprises" won't throw you off
- Time at the end of your day
- Small issues won't become huge problems
- No more struggling to catch up!
- Peace and cooperation in the morning
If you can relate to rushing around in the morning choose something you can prepare ahead for the next day and notice what happens when you do it consistently.
Love To You,
