Two very important tools for planning and organizing your day

2 Very Important Tools for Planning and Organizing

**affiliate links included in this post**

Hi friends, be sure to stay with me until the end for a really fun giveaway!

Last week I eluded to the fact that I have updated the daily tools I use for planning and organizing my day. But first let me tell you why I need to use any sort of tools at all.  Well actually there are quite a few reasons:

My memory is terrible

I am easily distracted

I get overwhelmed easily

I tend to procrastinate

Can you relate to any of those at all? Seriously, people think I’m organized because I’m just a naturally organized person.  Umm no, I’m organized because I manipulate my environment so that it lends itself to living an organized life. If it weren’t for that, I’d be a wreck and nothing would get done. Honestly. That’s why I utilize all 10 of these solutions for living an organized life and I implement routines and rewards as well on a regular basis.

Today I’m going to talk specifically about solutions that I use to keep me on task with what needs to get done each day so I don’t get overwhelmed by it all. Please keep in mind that this is what works for me, but of course it’s not a one size fits all for everyone. Everyone has to find and do what works best for them.
