Behind the scenes

Working on being organised and personal development

I don’t know whether you’d class me as disorganised.  I’m very organised when it comes to personal finances – got to make sure those bills get paid!  So why is it in some areas I’m very much disorganised?  Things like filing, keeping my work stuff tidy and sorted, and planning for family events are very much chaotic!

Business related, I can think ahead for days where special gift sets may be required, can work out what products I need to order and by when, but getting newsletters and social media posts sorted – well, it’s very much an ‘off the cuff’ last minute thing.

Take Mothers Day for instance.  In the UK we celebrate it this year on the 14th of March.  I’m going to make up some baskets or bouquets of TBSAH products for my customer group.  I have a good idea of what to include and just need to work out pricing.  I’ve got cards available from my other business so all ready just to order and assemble.  But have I planned out my marketing?

Another thing I’ve started but not settled into a routine with is my ‘journalling/personal development books’ – after watching the Youtuber Cathrin Manning for about a year, I’ve adopted many of her strategies and become something of a ‘groupie’.  I really admire how organised she is and am trying to develop my own morning routine.  Some days it works, I’m motivated and enthusiastic, but other days?

Please tell me I’m not the only one like this?
