Have you ever just been a place where nothing really is working, but you cannot put your finger on what it is? I can say in my work life that is happening some. I found that I was having a hard time trying to create, stay focused, and put out quality work without taking forever to do so. I decided to move my desk ad got to work. Yup, that is what worked.
It was very simple. If you are in a situation that is just not working, you have to change where you are. I am not a genius, but I know far too many times I have allowed myself to stay stuck and just feel out of it for far too long. It really took me five minutes to pick up my desk, place it in the front bedroom, and get a view of the sunshine, trees, and airborne soldiers. I could seriously watch Airborne School all day, and it provides a nice break every so often to regroup and clear my mind.
Have you found yourself drifting in your day-to-day as a stay-at-home entrepreneur or just a mom who is at home with a laundry list of things to do for you and your household? It is never a bad idea to write down what you want to or need to accomplish for the day. Regardless if it is in a planner, on a piece of paper, on your phone – just do it! it will allow you to see what your day looks like. This can help allow you to maybe push an errand to another day, or do an additional item, or enjoy some time with your family and friends.
I like to make a couple lists – things to do with dates they have to be done by and I place this at the beginning of my planner for the month that I am in. Then as I plan out my days I can place things as needed on the schedule. I try not overthink this. It is a planner yes, but it can be done with a pencil so that I don’t have a heart attack when things don’t go right. I do tend to do this. Thankfully they also make stickers you can place on things that say canceled or rescheduled. They make your schedule changes pretty.by
