I'm trying to do better...

I've made myself a daily schedule on an Excel spreadsheet.

And I think I'm more excited about it than I thought I'd be.

I'm getting up earlier. I'm getting back on a workout routine. I've built in Bible Study time. I have a window of work time each day. And for the first week or two, I'm going to shove a nap into the schedule because this will take some getting used to...but it's for the best.

I feel more productive.

I don't feel rushed.

I don't feel stressed.

I feel like I have time for things I need to be doing.

Sure there are LOTS of things to do...but they are more likely to get done if I can stick to this schedule.

Do you have a written schedule?

Do you need that kind of help for your day?

Happy Tuesday!

I don't have it all written out but I do keep to a schedule for the day! As much as I hate getting up early working out, it makes the rest of the day sooooo much better!!

Good for you getting all organized!!

PS Love the new look :)

You changed the look of your blog! At first I thought I was in the wrong place. It's really cute.
Proud of you for the schedule! Hope it works great for you! Did you make sure to schedule some facebook time? LOL

Good for you! I don't have everyday written out, but if it's a particularly busy day it is or I'll forget something!

I have a to-do list but that's it. A written schedule may help me get more accomplished though!

I would love and need to get myself on some sort of schedule. It seems, as though, I need to make a schedule to make a schedule. I hope yours works out for you.

I don't do schedules great. They stress me out. But some people really benefit from them! Good luck with all that--definitely GREAT things on your list of to-dos!!

I thrive on a schedule and routine, so do my children.. . except for grasshopper.

I find that on days I think we should shy away from the schedule are the days that I fell apart and they fall apart.

no No NO!!! I am not motivated yet to do anything but live each day as they come.

I need to do make a plan of attack!!

I think I will take a nap first then begin. Maybe when I get up someone will have written one out for me.

You go girl!!!!
