I have created routines that keep my home and business running smoothly. When I had to revise the routines to make them work while I was on the road, there were some breakdowns.
I thought that when I returned to the office, I would fall right back into my old routine. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen that way.
All of these tasks had to be completed rather quickly so I could prepare for upcoming presentations and client meetings.
Routines aren’t rigid; instead, they allow you to make choices. For example, I usually spend time looking at the gowns worn to awards shows (honest truth!). This week I made a decision that viewing the Golden Globes dresses wasn’t as important to me as other things I needed to do.
Because I know what I have to do and what I want to do, I have the ability to choose my tasks instead of feeling pressured by time limits. Which tasks can you create routines for so you can spend less time thinking about what you should be doing?
