Last week was a weird one at work. I was stressed to the max but I never seemed to really be moving in the forward direction. I had high hopes for productivity, but stuff just kept getting in the way. I went home every night defeated. Friday morning was the most ridiculous. I got to work early and shit hit the fan in all directions and I spent the rest of the morning until the kids arrived hiding in my friend's classroom. This week is going to be different.
How will I make sure this week is super productive?
1. Make a To Do list every morning for both work and home. Not allow myself to be distracted by anything until the list is complete. Last week there was no list. That was the fatal flaw.
2. Schedule exercise. Last week I ran on Sunday, and then didn't exercise again until Thursday. This does not work for my body or mind. Exercise will be on the list.
3. Take my vitamins. Everyone around me is sick and I REFUSE to spend another vacation sick. If I get sick next week it will be my third vacation in a row that I spend sick. Unacceptable.
4. Keep my eyes on the prize. Absolutely MUST get stuff done this week or I will not have fun on vacation because it will have to be done then. Unacceptable.
How do you keep yourself on track when you know you need to GET STUFF DONE?
