As I am planning for the month of April, I thought about sharing how I stay organized with such a hectic schedule. I have a part-time job, go to school full-time, in a sorority, and blog. I truly believe in order to be successful, you must be organized. The main and simple thing that helps me stayed organized is a planner. I put EVERYTHING in my planner: work schedule, sorority events, upcoming posts for Instagram, you name it. I honestly never commit to anything until I look at my planner first. I even color code everything. For example, one of my sorority's colors is green. Therefore, everything Kappa Delta related is written in green. My mom would probably never believe this, but it is true. I like to have everything organized so I am not as stressed, missing deadlines, or forgetting about events.
My Bloom Daily Planner keeps me organized and has me planning to "bloom". In this planner, there are several sections to work on your goals. They even have a whole page dedicated to goal tracking using the acronym: bloom. B: be inspired, L: love yourself, O: outline your vision, O: organize priorities, and M: make it happen. There are vision boards, weekly scheduling, a page for your website logins, and many more cool features. Also, I took pictures of the planner before I put all my information in it for privacy reasons and mainly because I am not the best writer.
One of my favorite things about this planner is that each month has an uplifting and encouraging quote. This month's quote is "The secret is: There is no secret. You just have to put one foot in front of the other". This is so true. No matter what your field is, just keep pushing. You will get there eventually if you just keep putting one foot in front of the other. However, one tip I will share that has been crucial for me is putting information in my planner as soon as I know about it. I get easily distracted. So, if I don't put it in my planner as soon as I know about it, I will most likely forget. I also like to check my planner at least every other day. This keeps me on track and helps me know what all I need to prepare for.
I really hope you guys enjoy this quick, little blog post. Let me know your goals for April and for the rest of this year! 2019 is almost one fourth of the way over. I hope you are getting closer each day to completing your goals!
