Are you prepared?

So have you created a New Years Resolution? Mine is not to lose more weight, quit smoking (I don’t smoke anyway), or eat healthier foods. Mine is “Organize!” Countless hours have been invested in the careers of many people pursuing their dreams but how do you select which hours are best used throughout your day? I, for one, have sat down and begun to lay out a calendar that will help me with just that. Although this may seem tedious to you at first, you will discover that you actually will save hundreds if not thousands of hours working on productive things rather than feeling like you’re looking back at the end of the day saying, “Where on earth did the time go? I feel like I got nothing done today”.

Start by creating your routines that are typical to starting your day. Wash your face in the morning, take a shower, eat your breakfast, exercise, walk and feed your pets, make your bed, etc. Once these have been established you can fill in the rest of the hours little by little and remember that you do not have to figure it all out in one sitting. Things happen daily in life that can throw your routine in the garbage and that’s ok. If you cannot take that 30 minutes you planned to accomplish small tasks like write cover letters to your casting directors, or stuff envelopes, or call Indie filmmakers, or whatever it is you would like to achieve, simple reschedule it with yourself. But remember to do it. By completing these small tasks you are actually leading to getting the bigger ones done and that sense of accomplishment builds self-esteem as well as opening new doors to success.

At the end of each day go through your scheduled tasks. What did you get done? What took longer than expected? What were your interruptions? How can you adjust your schedule to streamline your activities a bit smoother? Can you find more leisure time? Are you feeling like your reaching your goals? It’s important to realize that baby steps are the keys to ultimate success and little by little the universe will respond the energy you invest in it. It’s inevitable. Like I tell my children every day…”Never give up”.

Enjoy the year. Be good to yourselves. Focus on positive thoughts and the thrill of each new day’s experiences. Work on reaching your goals because it won’t come your way without effort. The rewards will be fantastic….I promise. 🙂
