July Planning Tip

Doing It All? Creating New Habits

Every time we turn around there is another recommendation for something that will make us healthier, happier people. This health supplement, that exercise program. The latest awesome diet or the most recent advice on how to develop and keep good habits. 

In fact, your brand new planner is yet another tool to improve your life. Not only can you be more organized, but you can keep up with routines and cleaning schedules and meal planning and household projects and on and on and on.

A Different Tool

Perhaps that leaves you wondering just how this tool is different from the others. How this plan might help you be healthier and happier than the next one. Admittedly, I’m a little partial to this particular tool because it was birthed out of some of my own needs. But, I’ll share a little secret with you: it’s not about the tool. It’s about whether or not you use the tool. And, if you do use it, then it becomes about how you use it. 

With so many resources – and so much information – in your planner and online, you will never lack for tips to help you make progress. It’s important, though, that you use this information as an encouragement, not a trap. If you process through the A.C.H.I.E.V.E. Method and realize that you are already solid in creating a schedule and setting up a good daily and weekly rhythm, then you can put energy into learning how to better focus those skills by setting goals and rewarding yourself as you reach your goals. But, if none of the suggestions are established habits yet and you try to implement the whole system all at once, you’ll probably end up discouraged and overwhelmed very quickly. 

Once you see how your On the Go planner integrates into your current life, you can then begin to stack new habits on top of what you already have established. Start small and make sure your foundation of recognizing your desires and creating goals is firm before you move on to the next new habit. Also, remember to not try to fit into a mold of what others would do with each new habit. Look at how it will actually strengthen your life and fit your unique situation. 

When combined with intentionality, good tools can work wonders as you seek to build healthy habits in your life. But, ultimately, it’s important to remember to take it one step at a time, choose tools that work for you, and stack habits on top of one another to see the progress you seek.
