Happy almost February lovely!

I know, shocking! We are just a few days away from completing the very first month of the new year! Unbelievable!

So let me tell you a ‘lil secret.

‘Member when I shared with you the planning retreat I did to get my ducks in a row?

Ya, that one.

I got my ducks in a row but you know what?

Once I was back to my routine overwhelm took place again and once more I was moving towards I-am-not-doing-enough Land.

A terrible Land to visit by the way. Not even for a few days, the view is not pretty from there. I really wasn’t looking forward to getting there.

I scratched my head.

“What is going on? I have a plan for this year. Sure thing, things will change as I go but still…. why do I feel so unsettled and all over the place?”

That’s when the light bulb lit up!
“Of course!”, I slapped my forehead “I am having a hard timeย prioritizing! THAT’S what is making me so overwhelmed!”
I had my goals for the year, a rough plan to achieve them but I could not distinguish amongst all the tasks I had, which ones would get me there.

And so I happily turned to the exercise that always saves me on that specific situation.

If you have been following my blog for a while and had subscribed to my newsletter since the very beginning you already heard me talk about it, so let’s refresh it! ย If you are new here, you will love this new handy tip!

Ladies & Gents I present yoooouuuu…….

Marie Forleo and her Creating Mental White Space Exercise!

Woooohooooo *confetti*confetti*

Yes, it is that good! It deserves all sorts of pompom shaking and confetti tossing. ๐Ÿ˜€
If you are getting close to that darn Overwhelm Land right now, or even – gasp! – already there,ย this is a MUST watch!

It will take you aroundish 20min. to complete it.
Well, fine, it took me 1/2 hour! Ya know, I am a talker and as such I have a lot to “say” when I write things down as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

Grab a pen and paper, your fave beverage and get to work!

All done? Feeling better yet? Do you have that final handy list of achievable ToDos in front of you?ย ๐Ÿ™‚

GREAT, because I have something else up my sleeve today. ๐Ÿ˜€

After doing the exercise myself, I wanted to have a “Master To-Do List” on my planner so I would allocate to months, weeks, days, break down into smaller chunks, etc,etc.

And……

I realized I had never created a To-Do list printable! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Oh my gawd! How did I miss that one?

Well, I had created plenty of illustrated to-to lists built into weekly and daily sheets but never a stand alone one.

So I decided to sort out those built-ins, picked one of my favorites and then…..

TA-DAAAAA!

A handy and simple To-Do list was born!

‘Member those cutie ladies? ๐Ÿ˜€

No??? Oh sweets, you MUST check out the weekly printable where that list came from! ย There is even a video that goes with it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

{By the way, I sure hope you know I have a WHOLE PAGE of freebies, right?
Oh, you knew it already. Great! I just wanted to make sure. }

Back to the ToDo list.

Look how delicious having cute pages of lists side-by-side look like! {I know I am such a geek. ๐Ÿ˜€ }
