Happy Monday! I hope you had a beautiful weekend! I started the month with a blog post on see and seize! When thoughts are not cluttered it puts you in position to see your vision and ultimately seize that vision. This is why managing distractions is very important because it keeps you on track to achieving those goals and dreams. However, preparation is the key to balancing it all. I just believe we should live for today but also plan as if God will wake us up tomorrow. Therefore, when you prepare you are living out each new day in a joyful way while positioning yourself for what tomorrow may bring.
Now I mentioned a couple of weeks to journal daily because it connects you to your thoughts. Once you have connected and know what you truly need to do then write it down. This is called preparation! When preparing to start a new week or new journey preparation leads to accountability. Basically, once you write it on paper you have to hold yourself accountable for what is written.
I found listing the most important things first is helpful. For example, any great leader has a daily to do list. However, it's listed in order of importance. Most times people do things on their list but the stress comes when the most important things have not been completed. Therefore do what matters first.
Last, set a time to prepare and make that list. Time is one of our greatest gifts when it used to live out our purpose in life. Remember there is so much that can and will happen in each new day. Therefore, without preparation you will keep finding yourself trying to get ready instead of being ready for whatever the day brings.
As always thank you for reading and have a blessed new week!
