It is fascinating how fast this month has come to an end! It was defiantly a challenge adjusting to new habits while keeping everything on track. As always some things didn’t get a chance to get done, however, some things finished faster than expected. One thing I have learned about running my own business that staying on top of things at month end is crucial. The last thing you want to do is to leave things for the next month because everything will become chaos.
Keeping track of everything that is required for a business can be overwhelming. It can also be the same with life. Life can become hectic and before you know it, a year has gone by without doing all the things that you wished to do at the beginning of the year. If you truly want to enjoy your life, without letting your moments pass you by taking control in learning to live in the moment.
The best way I apply this to my life is simply using a calendar and a sheet of paper. I give myself the last day of the month to do a recap of everything that was done. This way I am able to refresh everything without having to look back on this month. My full attention will be focusing on outlining the next months plans to create space to live in the moment. These are some ways I refresh my life to become ready for what waits ahead.
