I don't have time to write a whole post this week, but I wanted to share my ritual for transitioning from one month to the next. (You'll understand why I'm so short on time these days if you listen to the audio. Haha!)
I USE MY DESIRE MAP DAY PLANNER FOR THIS REFLECTION PROCESS...
But you certainly don't need to have one. In fact, there are some features and questions I wish were included in the planner - so I've created a bookmark to use with whatever style of journal you love.
TEACHERS I REFERENCE IN THE AUDIO:
Nicole Antoinette - whipsmart guidance for beginner runners & people who need a swift kick in the arse on their goals. Plus, her writing is so honest, intelligent, and concise. It's like crisp seltzer with a twist. Love it!
Danielle LaPorte - a spiritual explorer, creator of Truthbombs, writer of desire permission slips, designer of gilded tattoos & purposeful jewelry... and that voice. She's a hot bath for your brain.
James Clear - entrepreneur, weightlifter, travel photographer, and Jedi Master of habit change. I savor, ponder, and enjoy every word he writes.
Susannah Conway - if creativity and mindfulness had a baby, they'd name her Susannah Conway. Her Unraveling The Year Ahead journal changed the way I'm consciously designing my life.
Elle & Company Design - Where do her good ideas come from? She launched and grew her successful business in a year and shows us how it's done on her blog - five days a week.
Olyvia Media - I think if we met in person we'd be long lost besties. Her personality seems to jive with mine and everything she shares is a helpful resource I save. Plus she tweeted one of my blog posts recently, which had me speed-dialing my brother for a Twitter crash course:) Thanks to Erika's tweet, I'm slowly learning how to have 140-character conversations. Feels super abnormal. But I'm trying:)
By Regina - Does this woman sleep? Does she have a clone army? Is she superhuman? These are things I must get to the bottom of as I follow her guidance (and use her EPIC Blog planner to organize my blog and business ideas).
STAY OUT OF INFO-OVERWHELM TIP:
- Peruse interesting articles.
- Make a wish list of things you'd love to try.
- Pick ONE wish/theme to work on for the next month.
Mine? The more I learn about Pinterest, the more I see the benefit of using it as a business growth tool. Next month my intention is to put the million of other things I could be learning outside my bubble and give conscious energy (aka focus) to my current haphazard Pinterest situation. I'm going to follow the guidance from Olyvia Media's post: How To Get Pinterest Followers & Repins: The Ultimate Guide.

P.S. Here's the budgeting tool I mentioned in the audio: You Need A Budget (or YNAB).
