As the holidays fast approach, now’s the time to get organized. But who has time? Not me, that’s for sure and the same goes for a lot of people I know. Trying to purchase gifts, plan meals, clean and decorate, wrap gifts, attend parties and budget for the holidays all while working, raising kids and doing what we need to do can be taxing!
Making a commitment to getting organized might be just what you need to jump start the holiday season and it only takes one minute to make that commitment. Make a commitment to learn how to improve productivity in your own life - that’s a great start! Or make a commitment to overcome procrastination in your everyday life - why put off for tomorrow what you can do today? Can you manage your time better during the day? I think all of us are guilty of time mismanagement so you might want to make a commitment to managing your time better during the holiday season.
A big problem that we all face is over-committing this time of year. Don’t be afraid to make a commitment to yourself and learn how to say no. You don’t have to have the most uber decorated house in the neighborhood and you don’t have to go broke buying gifts for family and friends. You don’t have to attend every party or give to every single charity that asks. Remember - the word NO! is a complete sentence. Don’t forget that!
As the saying goes, the best way to eat an elephant (ew, I know) is one bite at a time - so for today’s one minute miracle - just decide to make a commitment to do some things a little differently this holiday season or maybe even the whole year through!
