Day 2 - 30 Days of Work in Progress

Today we're going to organize and prioritize!  And then we may have to dive a bit into our feelings around these projects... but one step at a time.

So how making your master brain dump go yesterday?  Do you feel any lighter with it out of your head?  You may be feeling overwhelmed by the list... that's ok.  We're not going to finish that list this month, but we are going to make progress.  

Step One: Categorize

Take a fresh sheet of paper and we're going to transfer those projects over to into categories.  Make some big categories like home repair, quilting, memory keeping, decluttering, etc. 

Step Two: Prioritize

This is where things need to get a little more "woo" before we can get to taking concrete steps again.  It's important to think about where you can get the most bang for your energy bucks so you can keep the momentum going.  Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  1. What do you need the most this month?
    • A cleaner house?
    • More space in your garage?
    • Less mental clutter?
    • A sense of accomplishment?
    • Some creative time?
  2. Where is your energy level right now?
    • Can you tackle some hard or would it be better to focus on small wins to build your confidence?
  3. Look over you list(s) and pick the project or category of projects that's calling to you right now.  
    • This is just our focus for now, you aren't making a permanent commitment. 
    • If you finish that project, you can pick another project.  If you hit a roadblock, you can regroup and work on something else.
  4. Circle the project you feel motivated about - this is going to be great!
