I started writing this post Sunday morning but something kept pulling me away while I sipped coffee. That something was mostly my mind. Ever have days where your mind wanders and you lack focus? That was me yesterday. I thought it was because I was thinking about my trip and needing to finish packing and delegating at work and home. So I put the blog post in draft and walked away. And drank more coffee. Then I turned on the television and caught up on my DC shows on The CW Network. Escapism is not productive but it was what I needed yesterday until I was ready to tackle what was on my mind.
A pot of coffee later and caught up on TV I picked back up the planning and looked at my spread for the week.
I realized there was a lot to be done before vacation and I needed to highlight the fun things and the trash. And only those. Any week before I take time off is hectic and this week would be no exception.
So keep loose and don’t overly commit is the plan I went with. And I am glad I did. Monday was crazy and so will be each day. But when I look at the plan, I see the important things and the end game: vacation. Some weeks I don’t focus on the pretty stickers and washi tape or the meetings and priorities. Just the end game.
How about you? How do you plan and get ready for the weeks you know not what to expect?
