Middle of the Road

IMG_1938-1How do you do what you LOVE, while doing what you MUST?


                I’ve come to a fork in the road. I’ve been here before but this time is different. I finally have direction and I am very clear about my destination. Now all I have to do is figure out how to keep moving forward.  I’m finding it difficult to cram everything I NEED to do and everything I WANT to do in my 24 hour day, 7 day week. Yeah, Yeah I know I have the same 24 hours that Beyoncé has….whatever. She has several personal assistants, managers, drivers, chefs and a slew of Minions to keep her in FORMATION. I am practically a one woman show. It’s me and one Good, Good Girlfriend. So how do I keep the momentum going without having a mental breakdown and CRASHING? IMG_1931-1

           I need MapQuest… I need that Navigation Chick to chime in throughout my day and talk to me. “In 45 minutes post a picture on Instagram. In 3 feet, turn right, sit down at your desk and blog.”  Wouldn’t that be perfect? For me it would be ideal! BUT… since this is NOT about to happen any time soon, I am taking steps to figure it out on my own. To Thy Own Self be True….. Lisa Needs a written plan. I thrive off ‘TO DO LISTS’ and ‘SCHEDULES’. So I went out and purchased a HANDY DANDY NOTEBOOK and devised a Master Plan.

The First 5 Steps

Scheduling for Success and Planning for Progress

  1. Pray Daily, reconnect with Myself and God. Ask for His direction.
  2. Devise an hour by hour schedule that will help develop a routine that incorporates work obligations, writing/blogging, exercise and relaxation.
  3. Eliminate distractions and activities that are not productive.
  4. Eliminate the people and situations that are weighing me down.
  5. DO!!! Put steps 1 through 4 into ACTION! Open the doors that Lead to Success and Get Moving! IMG_1906-1 IMG_1923-1
