Happy New Year! I hope your holiday season was as refreshing as mine. After Christmas I took some much needed time to rest and recharge. However, it felt amazing to get back into my routine. I realized that I actually thrive when I have a routine in place. 

In the past I used to try to create these really rigid routines where everything was planned out. However, I kept “failing” at them and getting frustrated. I also knew that not having a routine was chaos for me. So I found my happy medium. 

My routine consists of two tools, my google calendar and a task management tool called Trello. I run on a scheduled/ task list. Don’t worry I will explain what that means. 

Anything that has a time/date associated with it goes on my google calendar. These I consider as events that need to be scheduled in advance, because someone is relying on me during that specific time/date. These include doctors appointments, coaching sessions, lunch dates. 

Then I have a list of daily tasks that I have to accomplish. I put these in Trello, but I do not put a specific time to them. I complete these tasks when they fit within my schedule. 

It was important for me to identify which tasks I needed to complete within a week. I then assign days to them, but I keep the time I do them open. I noticed that when I switched my routine to this model I was able to accomplish so much more in a day. I also was actually able to show up for myself and complete the task!
