A friend of mine gave me a daily journal with space to write your own entry, space to write your thoughts, and a new first for me, space to write your plan for the day and your plan for tomorrow. I really liked this. So often we fail to really “plan” our day. What are the goals, how much time do we have to just sit if we still want to achieve, can we sit and read and still make it to the grocery store, do we have work goals, and on and on. As they say on Sesame Street: “What’s The Plan, Stan?” Try it-in the morning, just quickly jot down what you would like to do in your day and at the end of the day, make a note of how well you did then make a short plan for the next day. Don’t base it on your failure on the day before, but base it on your successes.
