The 100 Day Challenge, Day 81:

One of the best ways to insure your success, in any area, is to get organized.  As I write this, we are on the brink of a new week and a new month.  The month of May is perfectly suited to throwing out the old and bringing in the new.  Clean out, make plans, get organized.

Today- plan for the week ahead.  What kind of a week/month would you like to have?  What work would you like to accomplish?  What projects would you like to complete or make progress on?  Specifically, what steps will you need to take to achieve these?  Put them into your calendar?  Who would you like to spend time with?  Call or email them today to set a date and time.  What would you like to read or watch or learn?  Get specific with times and exactly what these are.  What would you like to do health wise?  Get specific with this, too and schedule it in.

Today, I am cleaning out my winter clothes and bringing out the spring and summer ones.  I am sorting out what I don’t wear at the same time and making piles for Goodwill and for the second hand shop.  It feels good to let things go, and leaves you clearer for taking on what comes next.

Plan for success by getting organized.  When you rid yourself of distracting chaos, and make a specific plan to follow, you give yourself a real chance to have the week and month you want to have.
