Are Routines THAT Important?

routineeveryday

I’m saying nothing new when I say that you get more accomplished, feel better about yourself, and have more free time when you have and stick to a routine.  We all know that, right?

What happens though is something totally different for people like me who don’t go to an outside job.  We have to be disciplined enough to make a plan, follow it through, and not be thrown off course too much by the curve balls life throws our way.

I was going to give you an example of how my life can be thrown off course pretty easily, but my days are so different according to whether I have my girls or not.  Instead, I’ll talk about what some things are I do pretty much every day, whether I have my girls or not.  Like the quote above says….that’s whats most important.

One thing I do every day at some point is read from Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich.”  I was at a seminar back in May where Bob Proctor spoke and he talked about his being given that book when he was a young man, cleaning offices.  He talked about how he reads it every day to this day, and how it shaped him into the multimillionaire he is today.

Another thing I do every day (most days) is work on both of my businesses in some fashion.  Blogging could take the whole time, so I need to be disciplined there.  There also product creation (which is SUPER exciting!), and real estate investing.  With so many irons in the fire, I need to sometimes set timers for myself to only work on one thing at a time for a set amount of time.

abundance

I realized recently that the topics I was blogging about in self-care weren’t complete.  By never talking about abundance and potential ways to increase yours, I was leaving out a large part of how to be your best self.  When you’re worried about how you will pay bills, you can HARDLY be at your best!  (I speak from experience here.)  So from time to time, posts on abundance will be interspersed with everything else.
