12 Days of Getting Your Shit Together – Day 9
Do you have your shit together yet?
At the very least, by this point in the challenge, you should have an understanding that adding more to your plate isn’t the way to get your shit together.
Clarity = Getting your shit together
More on your to-do list does not = Getting your shit together.
If you’re still sitting there thinking I’m crazy, telling yourself that you can’t function without planning in the way that you know it, think about this:
Why are you here?
You wouldn’t be looking to get your shit together if your version of planning worked for you. You wouldn’t be struggling with overwhelm if the way you’ve always done it was effective for you.
It’s obviously not working. So why do you keep pushing it?
Sameness is not going to bring about change.
Change Can Be Big or Small
Sometimes, big changes are too hard to make, to implement and to stick with.
However, sometimes small changes are too insignificant to motivate you.
Going back and forth is good. It’s how a scale works. It’s how you achieve balance.
What Needs to Change?
So if you’re serious about getting your shit together, what needs to change?
It can be big or it can be little.
Pull from the previous days of this challenge to come up with the answer:
- How has letting go of planning changed your days?
- What have you become more aware of in the past several days?
- What decisions have you made this week?
- What have you done to enjoy yourself?
- What did you write down on your brain dump?
- How has breathing helped you feel more organized and clear?
- How can your communication with your partner improve?
Think about the answers to these questions. Better yet, journal about them. The path that you’ve taken while going through this challenge will help you think about what really needs to change and what might be able to stay the same.
The answer may surprise you.
