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 time 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!  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. 😀
If you are getting close to that darn Overwhelm Land right now, or even – gasp! – already there, 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. 😀

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? ðŸ™‚

GREAT, because I have something else up my sleeve today. 😀

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! 😮

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? 😀

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

{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. 😀 }

Now love, if you read all the way down here and skipped the video, I urge you to go back and watch it. Do the exercise and then reward yourself with those darling printables to make your Master To-Do List even more exciting.
After all, now you just have written down the things that really matter, right? 😉

As always, three sizes are available below.

Okey dokey sweets, I am off to get some of my ToDos done. 😉

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and I talk to you again soon!
