We talked about how it’s important to think about what you want to do, what you have to do, and things you don’t WANT to do. Maybe you can pass along those tasks to a virtual assistant if you’re a blogger or you can find a way to juggle your schedule to do less of those tasks. Don’t forget to check off your daily self-care and fitness on the left side, and you can laminate these so you can write on them every day and erase!
