Here's to Starting Over...

What am I starting over on you ask? My approach to business and life in general.

In the past few months I have found that I have become reactionary. Life has handed me and my family a series of circumstances, that seem to have us struggling to accomplish the daily tasks of living let alone pursue our dreams.

Things that were often accomplished daily now get started and never finished. There just isn’t enough time in the day, or we can’t complete them to our satisfaction.  This ends now!

For myself at least, I’m going back to my lists. Lists for what needs to be done for the household, for my children, for my mother-in-law, and for my businesses. I used to keep a planner by me 24/7, sorry kids it’s coming back. It’s the only way I can make sure it’s all done.

There have been some big changes in the house in the past few months. My oldest has started his first post-college job and moved to another town an hour away. His daily presence is missed in the house, but his departure opened up some space for better everyday living and business organization.

So I guess the real reason behind this post is to let everyone know, my home, my schedule and my life are going to be getting a makeover soon. It may be small steps at a time or giant leaps... There may be times I falter but it will get done – one step at a time.

I’ll keep you posted.
