Getting Organized for School (and Life!) - Prioritizing Your Activities and Schedule

With school starting soon, I'm going to occasionally recycle some of my previous blog posts regarding getting organized for school over the next few weeks. Here's one I'm very passionate about:

If you have school-age children there are three times a year when it might be beneficial to re-prioritize your activities and schedule: January, summer and fall. 

Even if you don't have kids, fall is like a second January. Summertime is usually chaotic, and now it's time to regroup.

Prioritizing activities and schedules involves looking at your schedule in light of your passions and gifts. Does your schedule reflect those things you love and are gifted to do? If not, burn out or discouragement is ahead. 

When you know where you're going and why, life is fulfilling. You're confident you are running after those things you love. You're basking in the satisfaction of using your gifts and doing a good job.
Even if difficult times should arise, it gives you a compass through the storm. What could be better?

If you are overwhelmed at the thought of re-prioritizing, I'd love to help! 

- I'm available to coach you through this. 

- I have several time management books which walk you step-by-step through this process.
