Creating your current IDEAL WEEK

Last week I shared my “to-do list system” (if you missed it or want to read it again you can find it here). This week, as the subject line suggests, I’m sharing how to create your current “Ideal Week.” I say “current” because sometimes when people talk about “ideal weeks” they’re talking about how things will look and feel when you hit that goal or are “where you want to be.” What I mean for Ideal Week is, how you’d … Continue reading

Wrapping things up

Welcome to 2017! I’ve spent the last couple days dreaming what I want 2017 to look like and doing some planning. No surprise there though 🙂 Today I had planned on wrapping up that planning, but instead found myself wrapping up a different project. I completed my last promotional task for ICF Chicago.
