The number one question I am asked time and time again is "how do you get so many things done and stay so calm?". It's easy. I write everything down.
First, I want to clarify that I don't get that much done. Ok, maybe more than most but it often feels like I should do more. I have so many ideas and plans for my life that I don't want to miss out. And I don't think I will as long as I write it all down.
I get stressed when I worry that I won't remember to do something. I am always afraid I may forget one Thursday morning that I have to host the AHA show. But since I have not forgotten yet (in five and a half years) that system seems to be working ok.
So where do I write everything down? I use two different "things". The majority of my to do's are in my memo book. The others are in my phone in my "Notes" app. I also set appointments in my phone with alarms for things like the AHA show and any appointments or online marketing consultations. They are set to remind me an hour in advance just in case ...
At night, the last thing I do is pull out my memo book and add anything that is on my mind, whether it is a crazy idea or something I need to accomplish on my to do list. Once is it written in the book then I am guaranteed a restful night's sleep. Of course I usually don't need more than six hours sleep which technically gives me two extra hours every day!
It's time to end this blog post as I have got to go and find my memo book. That's occasionally an issue around here. The good news is it's got to be in my office or my studio or my bedroom. So I know it can't be too hard to find.
