For those who don't meditate, this will sound out there, but meditation helps me set an intention for almost all that I do. I visualize the path forward. I create a picture of the end goal. I see the big picture in my minds eye! I get very clear! Give meditation a try! You could even start with 5 minutes to start the day & 5 at the end the day.
"De-junk" January is definitely an energizing experience, it's a motivating movement, it's a happy habit of mine that I have been doing for several years now. Each year this process becomes less and less tedious and more & more enjoyable because through the years I have changed my mind-set about clutter. Clutter no longer accumulates like it used to. Even after enlisting the KonMarie Method, this is still a work in progress. The end goal is not having to spend the time de-junking. I continue to fine tune my systems that keep my space under control and energized. If you want to know more about the simple solutions I have created to help, be sure to add yourself onto my email list (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The Rise podcast with Rachel Hollis lead me to this book, High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard. This book is such a gift. It completely changed my mind-set. It made me realize life isn't about making New Year's Resolutions or setting general goals, it's having good, fine-tuned habits that will help you play the LONG game!
Pictured above is the High Performance Planner. It is the perfect complement to High Performance Habits. I have been reading the book & listening to the audio version as well on The Brendon Show podcast. Each morning I wake up, meditate, then fill in the my hourly schedule for the day! This has been so helpful to make sure that I am spending time on what really matters!
