Day 186: Life Goes On…And On and On

That’s not a bad thing except when bad things are happening in your life and you want nothing more than to crawl into bed, pull the covers up over your head and sleep for a few days.  But you can’t because you have a family, work, organizations, etc…,  that are depending on you to do what you’re supposed to be doing.  You have to take care of sick family members, check your child’s homework, earn money to pay the bills, call the plumber, finish that report for your boss, and a multitude of other things.  Then, and only then, can you pull those covers up over your head.  If life weren’t that way, planner companies and self-help programs and authors would go out of business.  I personally have bought more than my fair share of Franklin Covey and Day Runner planners, organization and self-help books and any and everything that might help me stay on track and keep up with my responsibilities.  Some have helped and some were a huge waste of money.  But I’m still on the lookout for that magical formula that will get and keep my life organized and on track.  I’ve found bits and pieces but I’m still looking for everything in 1 planner, book, or program.  I really like Danielle LaPorte’s planner.  It’s based on her Core Desired Feelings.  It gets to the heart of what you desire and how you desire to feel.  And what you need to do to achieve both.  I just got a new planner that is all about working your plan to reach your goal in a year.  Let’s just see how that works.  Fortunately, it’s not dated so you can start at any time.  I plan to start on Saturday.  I’m not giving up on my goal of being a published author so I will keep searching for the best way to get there until I do actually get there!  And I will get there.
