I've been thinking a lot about how stinkin' stressful it is to try and fit everything in... how much goes undone because I just can't do it all. But I also realize there's a lot I could do to make my life more organized and more efficient. Judging from my current state of mind and physical stamina, I would benefit greatly from a bit of reduced stress. And I think organization is part of the answer.
So this coming year, I plan to focus on organizing my life - all aspects of it. This is going to have to be a purposeful thing that happens a little at a time. Otherwise, all high hopes will fall to the ground and be trampled upon.
Every week during the year of 2011, I will post my focus for that week. I'll think through and list every aspect of my life that needs some organization and follow up with detailed methods of how to smooth out the wrinkles of chaos for each one. I am calling it OYOL (pronounced much the same as oil) - One Year to an Organized Life.
My goal is quite simple. I wish to come to the end of 2011 more organized than I am now. If you're feelin' much the same as I am currently, you are more than welcome to join me in this quest.
Along these lines.... Do you think women take on more than they should? Do you think there are things we add to our list of jobs that are unnecessary? What do you do when you're feeling like "I CAN'T DO IT ALL!!" I'd be super curious to know.
