SPRING IS HERE IN SYDNEY...
Well technically anyway, the actual weather may deem something different.
Did you know that Australia is one of the very few countries that deem their seasons by calendar and not the solstice? I had no idea - you learn a new thing every day.
With Spring in tow and my home circumstances changing last week, the schedule and routine have been out of whack indeed. Does anyone else feel frazzled when the regular routine gets interrupted?
3 WAYS TO HELP PUT A SPRING BACK IN YOUR STEP AND BACK ON TRACK
1. Accountability Buddy
Now, this can be in the form of a person, family, friend, work colleague, mentor, or coach, or alternatively an app or checking off a calendar.
Being accountable to someone or something gives a sense of drive and gives some structure to the task at hand you are trying to achieve.
There are two types of accountability types - Generally, we are either driven to succeed by proving to ourselves or accountable to another person. Find out which methods may be useful to you from my previous blog post.
2. Take a reset moment
Take some time to re-evaluate what is working for you and what may be hindering your progress. Does something need to be added or taken away from your routine for your progress to continue?
How can you make that happen?
3. Break down bigger tasks into smaller chunks
We are in the last quarter of the year. Are you on track with what you set out to do this year? Sometimes we have all the best intentions but can get overwhelmed with the ideas at hand. (I know I can overwhelm very easily) Chunk it down into monthly, weekly, and daily tasks.
How are these going to be incorporated into your day? This is where idea 3 can be incorporated into idea 1. Having someone accountable for these tasks gives you the urgency to get them done. Making the tasks is one thing, creating time to get them done
Go forth and enjoy the Spring Days and sunshine when it decides to show.
If you have any other ideas that help you stay or get on back on track I'd love to know what works for you.
Until next week
