Travel Series – To Do List

T Minus 2 days until we leave for Hawaii!

That means I have a lot to do before we leave for our trip. As an entrepreneur, preparing for a trip (business or pleasure) takes a lot of preparation. Not only do you have to think about the things you need to do that are pertaining to your trip, but you also have to think about the processes that are laid in place so that your business doesn’t fall apart while you’re gone. Granted, we’re only going to be gone for 4 days – and you know what they say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”

Either way, I have a lot of prep to do before we leave!

Vacation related:

  • Look through updated packing list and start putting things aside
  • Take fur baby to the groomer
  • Do laundry
  • Clean up the house
  • Run the dishwasher
  • Wash sheets

Business related:

  • Create daily agendas for my team
  • Create opening, midday, and closing checklists for my team
  • Send out all online orders
  • Prepare timesheet for payroll
  • Write blog posts
  • Schedule social media content
  • Pay bills
  • Make sure kitchen is fully stocked for the weekend
  • Fill the managers in for what to expect this week

It’s a lot, I know. I’m getting overwhelmed just thinking about it. If you could only see my Todoist app now, it’s all of this in more detail. GAH! But it’s ok, all I can do is chip away at the list – 1 thing at a time.

Word for 2018

Happy new year, Friends!

If you‘be been following me around in the last couple years you’ll now that ever year I choose a word the sets the tone for the upcoming 12 months. Last year, my word of the year was “Forward” and the year definitely lived up to its name.

In 2017 I laid a foundation for the current year. A lot of work had been done in 2017 to hopefully make 2018 the best year yet!

I’ve been thinking about what my word for 2018 would be for months now. I know this might seem silly but it’s a big deal to me. I just feel like it’s really important for me to have a running theme. Before I reveal my word for 2018 I’d like to lay a little bit of back story on how I chose it.

In October and November I reflected extensively on the past year. I set my goals based on what I have accomplished, what I didn’t get to cross off my list, and the foundation I set for the upcoming years. Because of that, I realized that this year’s word for 2018 is BUILD.

* I want to build a happy family with my husband

* I want to build successful businesses

* I want to build my relationship with God and involve Him in everything I do

* I want to build relationships with people

* I want to build confidence in myself

What is your word for the year?

Xoxo,

Goal Setting Series – Using Evernote and Todoist

Welcome to my 3rd and final post in my Goal Setting Series. I’m so glad that I was able to share this with you! It’s not only giving me an opportunity to put my thoughts somewhere but I’m really hoping that my thought process and workflow will help someone out there.

I was originally going to write a lengthy post about how I’m going to make a few tweaks on how I plan to use Evernote and Todoist, but I decided that instead I would doing a YouTube video about it. I think sometimes it’s just easier to walk through it and for you to visually see it than for me to take a bunch of screen shots and type it all out.

Get Evernote now: http://bit.ly/CO-Evernote
Get Todoist now: http://bit.ly/todoist-CO

I really hope this is useful for you! I’m always trying to up my productivity game so if you have any tips for me please do share in the comments!

xoxo,
