Losing track of the weeks!
So nice to see you are all still following me. Every day I get more and more followers. There are so many great people here.
This past couple weeks I have been working a lot at my "job" and been getting ready for an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids that the Chamber of Commerce is putting on - for those of you that don't know - I am the President of the Chamber of Commerce in my home town. Anyone that wants to join - PM me!!!! We are a friendly bunch. We let anyone join that wants to and that has the $35.00 a year entrance fee - Yep ONLY $35 for an entire year. We promote businesses that are in the chamber on our Facebook Page and on a website that I started for them. The website won't be a big deal to you all here but it sure is for someone that has never done anything but read emails and look at Facebook on the internet. :)
Anyways, didn't really start out to promote the chamber - that is how things come about and how we can get lost in what we are doing.
I have been making an "Itinerary" for myself because I tend to wander.... Don't we all - we start out to do one task and by the end of a couple hours we are totally somewhere else! Well I am going to try to put an end of that for me. We shall see how it works out. What I have been working on in my own business for the past couple of days is making some Essential Oils bottles up for resale and taking them around to my brick and mortar stores that I have purchased space in. And the other thing is - My ITENERARY.
I started the Itinerary on 3x5 cards - and I use them like "flash cards" I wrote down on each one the task - for example -
- read emails
- write to 5 customers
- SBDC Skills
- Go thru Bookmarks on my computer
- check pintrest
- get quarters from the washers and dryers
- check Facebook
- check bank accounts
- write content
- post on forum
on and on - you get the idea. This is not just an itinerary for WA and my business but for my entire life - or at least a good portion of it.
Then I am going to take all of these 3x5 flash cards and put them in order - which is why I used cards instead of just writing it all down in a notebook. I can order these any way I think it will work out for my day. Or my week - since there sure is a lot of items - I have 75 flash cards now and they are in an order I think I can live with for now.
I take each of these tasks and I will appoint a certain amount of time to spend on each one.
and set up my week.
My intent is to get myself on a schedule so that everything gets done every week - and no tasks are left to be forgotten about for months at a time - as is actually happening with me now. No more of that! I will leave time out for myself and for my family time - and what is nice about this is that it will give me a reason to get up out of bed early instead of taking my darn sweet time doing that. In my "job" I work from 1 pm till 10 pm so getting up early is not found a way into my life for a while whereas staying up until 1 or 3 am is.....
Once I get myself on a routine - I am hoping my content gets written more often and my website gets busier and my life gets more rewarding as I will be seeing accomplishments.
One of the things I need to write on these cards is come in here and write on my blog and interact with all you fine people.
If you are still reading this - Thank You for hanging in there. And feel free to follow me and I will follow you back so we can always stay in touch, learn from each other and grow.
Enough of my ramblings for now. I had no idea I was going to write about all this -this morning - but this is what feel out of my fingers onto my keyboard so there ya go ya all.....
Take Care Everyone - Hope this post sparks something in each of you to get yourselves all on track if you are indeed struggling with that - at least you know you are not alone.
Till next time
