I have a very creative and active mind that often lets me down. Especially when it comes to those I love.
A few years ago, I found myself constantly struggling and feeling as though I wasn’t actually accomplishing anything. This cycle left me feeling worthless, deflated and lacking in motivation and self-esteem.
When people asked me how I was, I was so sick of hearing myself say “I’m swamped and tired”.
I went to work on changing the cycle. I had to figure out why I was struggling so much and reflect back on what I was doing that was keeping me on this mouse wheel of discontent.
As soon as I started working on changing the cycle I realised that I was actually doing really well, but I couldn’t see it. I had been focusing on what I wasn’t getting done and how I thought I was letting people down.
I created this planner to help keep me accountable, reflect on and celebrate my accomplishments and set reminders that made sure I was looking after myself and my priorities along the way. I wanted to work from a full cup, not an empty one – the reason I was constantly tired.
On a daily, weekly and monthly basis, you’ll highlight and celebrate what you’re accomplishing, measure your progress and use reflection on the past, to help you move forward.
This is the part that is so underestimated – The importance of reflection.
It’s the one thing that most planners don’t include, because they focus on the future. You can’t get yourself out of a habitual cycle if you don’t know how you got there. This planner shows you the importance of small incremental shifts that give you the confidence to say no, and help you manage your time wisely.
The NFP Connect Planner will show you you’re on the right path. It will also give you an ever-so-gentle nudge, if and when you step off that path, in a kind and loving way that says… you are enough.
When you’ve got the right planning tool, you’re better prepared to deal with the chaos when it comes.
It took me years of learning and research to get this formula right, so that I can help others create the life they truly desire, without the guilt.
