- When do you study? I personally like to study at night. But I would like to know your preferences too. I am open to try something new. What would you recommend?
- What type of phrasing is the most effective one when it comes to ordering the self? I generally use sentences like “do the dishes” and then I get mad at myself and don’t do the dishes because I was mean to my future self the day before.
- How does one juggle kids with meetings, Fabulous, and general life?
- How do you remember your tasks and force yourself to check up on them in your to-do list?
- How do you schedule time for creative hobbies, like jewelry-making or drawing when you have a full-time job and kids at home?
1. Strengthening the foundation. This means keeping a healthy routine – exercise, diet, to-do lists, meditation, sleep. Paying close attention to why you are tired or hungry or agitated and doing something logical about it so that you feel well.
2. Doing more things that I enjoy, reducing the things I don’t. Outsourcing as many of difficult, overwhelming tasks – cleaning, yard work, laundry, meals, etc. – as I can. Optimizing to spend as much time with my kids as possible.
3. Being accepting and forgiving of myself, and tweaking plans when they don’t quite work. Understanding that no one is a machine that can endlessly execute toward a goal. Expecting big obstacles. Expecting constant failure in little bits and pieces.
4. Finding unique (and better) ways to accomplish your goals. For me these ways are often rooted in technology, which is a reason I’ve taken to this app. Just because everyone else says “the right way” to exercise is to get a gym membership, or play team sports, or go running, doesn’t mean that’s the right way for you.
5. Getting advice. Sometimes it takes a third party – friend, boss, etc. – to cut through the noise.
- Do you keep your work and your personal to-do lists separate?
- What are some small habits you are improving or working on? For example putting sandals on in the morning is one of mine. Another is drinking olive oil in the morning. What small ways have you come up with to improve your routines even just by 1%?
- How do you write it? Do you elaborate or just main points?
- How do you get strength and motivation to do even the hardest task?
- How do you keep yourself from adding in more and more new habits too quickly?
- How in depth do your To Do lists end up being?
- Does anyone use Bullet Journeling or another similar method? If so, do you find it helpful or better to keep things simple?
- Do you use the Bullet Journal method?
- Do you write your to dos for the day the morning of or the night before? Do you write each days to do at the beginning of the week?
- Do you feel fabulous?
