When I was running my business I worked from home. I very quickly realized that I needed a framework which would provide me with a discipline and routine to make sure I actually achieved something. From this experience I realized that to have a happy retirement I still needed a framework although different. I really needed to have a new routine which would give me a feeling of structure and of being in control.
January is of course an ideal time for putting the years key events in the diary - holidays, visits, key celebrations, dental checkups, hair appointments . I also diary gym sessions, my Pilates classes, painting time and also have entries for all my other interests I have in my profile.
None of this is set in stone but it helps to make things actually happen. Feel much better now this is done! Says a lot about me !
I use an electronic diary and also have a paper diary – goodness knows why…….my son’s girlfriend tells me it’s a girl thing – anyway it’s a very nice looking Smythson diary :)
