I don't know about you but sometimes life can really throw shit at you and if you're not careful it can knock you on your arse real quick.

I am a creature of habit. I like to say I don't mind change but if I'm really honest here, I can be really stubborn and resistant to it.

The problem with that is - to move forward and and improve in your business, things have to change. They need to improve.

One of the hardest things for me is starting new 'good' habits.

That's why I am quite surprised that I am on day 10 of a new habit I started.

A friend of mine was telling me about something called Artist Pages. Basically what you do is you write in a journal every day.

You take a few minutes each morning to compose yourself or meditate or whatever you do. For me it's get that first cup of coffee.

Then you just write, a literal 'brain dump'. You don't think about what you will write, you just write each and every thought that comes into your head until you have filled 3 pages.

You even write those silly thoughts like 'I don't know what to write' !

And guess what? It friggin works!

Usually by page 3 I have figured out my plan for the day and even sometimes come up with some pretty good ideas to implement.

Give it a try and let me know how it is working for you.

I think it is a great idea Angela. I tried starting but taking care of 5 month old twins alone by myself without any help, and working at the same time, hardly making ends meet has proven to be quite the challenge. I literally dont have time for myself. None. Zero. Zip. It is hard. I wish I had help. I have not been able to log into WA due to this. Trying to hang in here. I know it can be done, I just have to find the way.

I was a single mom for 18 years but I only had one. I can only imagine the challenges you deal with!
It is hard and as I'm sure you know - having a routine is a major help in keeping your own sanity.
I definitely won't be doling out any advice ;) because I know from experience that you have to find what works for you.
Just take one day at a time :)

This is a great idea. I will try to see if it works for me.

It does work......it even helps you improve your writing style, get through writer's block and clears the mind for fresh blogging ideas. Love the title....you made today's smile for me....thank you.

So glad I could make you smile :)

A path you compose is one best related to!

This sounds incredible. There was something in a business class that I took last year that was very similar to this.

I'm pretty impressed I've stuck with it. I must like it ;) lol

I carry a small notebook with me at all times. I can get easily distracted by "shiny" objects and end up going down a lot of wormholes. With my little notebook, the shiny object gets written down for later research and I can stay focused on my current task. Then , each morning I start by filtering my brain dump from the day before, putting the legit items on the day's to do list, everything else is either earmarked for a later date or simply trashed. I definitely agree that starting the day by organizing it is the way to go!
