Challenge #1: Create a calendar for November.
As a full time employee, business owner, and mom-to-be, there is nothing more valuable than my planner (well, maybe family.... some days). To be my most productive, scheduling tasks is an absolute necessity. I use the monthly calendar to identify when a task will be completed, and the amount of time it takes to complete.
By scheduling tasks on my calendar, I'm making a commitment to myself. Once the commitment has been made, it becomes harder to procrastinate. I become more intentional with my time, and (surprise!) more work gets done.
Besides achieving more, planning greatly reduces stress (if you're anything like me, this alone makes scheduling worth it). Proper planning prevents (hey... nice alliteration) you from waking up at 2am, realizing you forgot *insert annoying worry that keeps you up all night*.
