With the new year comes my 6th year of being a blogger and my 3rd year of blogging as something more than a hobby. Every year I tell myself that this is going to be the year that I get it together. This will be the year that I’m as organized as I want to be (which is usually over what it actually needs to be)… this will be the year I don’t forget to do anything. I will be ahead of the game so that if anything unexpected pops up I’m covered.
Because lists help and I’m a sharing type of gal I’ve compiled a few general ideas that I feel are easy to remember and are just conventional enough that it will help everything else fall into place without too much extra effort.
First and foremost I refuse to have backlog. Impulse shopping is my biggest vice and I condone it by saying “Oh I can blog this so I need it”. No more. There is a very large basket of product that has been accumulating in my office over the last year… full of products I “needed” that I haven’t even touched because I haven’t had the time to take photos of them. This year I’m not buying it unless it’s a must-have. As soon as I get a product home, or receive one in the mail, it will be photographed. Over the past month of holiday festivities I did this and I was so much more productive. I think setting these limits will really help me through the new year.
Next I will be taking the time to focus on Immune Support. My immune system needs to be on-point at all times to maintain my work/life balance. At Walmart you can pick up the Vitamin C supplement Ester-C which supports your immune system for 24 hours. It’s non-acidic and gentler on your stomach than regular Vitamin C. Visit Ester-C on Facebook + Twitter for more info.
Most importantly it’s vital to be realistic. One person can’t do it all – there is a time and a place for everything. It’s easy to work all day when you work from home. Last year I told myself I would only be at the computer and working during the hours my kids were in school. It ended up I would sneak away after hours to check emails or take photos. Then the kids would go to bed and I’d be up late editing or writing. It’s not okay emotionally, physically or mentally to work that much and it takes it’s toll on every area of life. Making a schedule and sticking to it is imperative.
To sum is up: Death to Backlog – Set Limits – Take Supplements for Immune Support – Create a Schedule – Stick to it – BE REALISTIC!
What are your goals for the new year… blogging or otherwise?
