If you got some good things done this week, congratulations. If you faltered in some areas, keep trying. The reason most people do not do this is that it is tough to keep up at first. Yet, for those who stick with the real idea of organization, there are great rewards.
As you follow this path, you will want to keep some notes so that you can go back and review what worked and did not work. Having a few notes and some ideas written down will often save you the hassle of having to repeat an exercise in futility. After all, those who forget the past are usually doomed to repeat it.
Your notes don’t have to be overly organized, super neatness has never been one of my virtues. They can be logged in or on anything that you care to use. I usually use a Cambridge 9.5” x 5-3/8” notebook made by Mead. It has 80 pages with line pages on one side and graph paper on the back. I find them easy to carry and store and may hold a lot of notes. I actually have a 20-year record of notes although I have to warn you, the more logs you have, the harder it is to keep track of them.
If you’ve been trying some of the things I have suggested this week, good for you. You have done the hardest part, and that is putting something into motion. Once you are in motion, you will stay in motion unless acted on by outside forces. And even with gravity and naysayers, you will find it much easier to keep in motion once you have started.
For now, please keep going. If you have questions, please ask. If you have concerns, let’s talk about them. You are doing great. Now is the time to have faith and trust in yourself, work with those around you, and strive towards that better and more relaxed future.
Thank you for being with me today and this week. I hope to be with you again soon.
