You know what I am learning? There must be order to your order if you want to avoid failure; this will make sense in a moment. It’s time to plan so grab your planner and let’s walk out this new month together in today’s mini planning session.
We are fresh into a new fall month boss-sister. I followed my first of the new month – by-day-2 rule – I’ve looked ahead into October and settled my plans by October 2nd. Have you? For me, I only have Pastor Appreciation Month and Halloween on my radar this month. This means, I’ve purchased a card and gift card for my pastor, and pumpkins and candy for Halloween. Completing these tasks by the second day of the month is how I avoid procrastination. You may recall that last month I did not follow my by-day-2 rule because that weekend was Labor Day and I wanted to hit the Labor Day sales since I had three birthdays to buy for last month. Well Phyllis, that got me completely off track. I felt like I was shopping all month and up to the last minute because I did not stick firmly to buttoning up everything by Sept 2nd. I’m calling this a LFOI fail – lol.
This fail reminded me just how good my by-day-2 rule is, and that is the practice of solidifying all the new month’s plans and completing associated purchases by the second day of the new month. So I was thrilled to kick off October like I like!
As a free gift for taking part of this LFOI experiment with me, I have a 15-page LFOI Framework Guide so that you can build your own personal framework for a Lifestyle of Faith, Order & Influence: https://ginaduke.com/podcast-resources/
