What does this have to do with organizing?
Blank Slate Days are a time to think, “Ok, what do I want to focus on this month?” It can of course include an actual organizing project. But also, it’s an ideal time to organize your time and focus in general. Take a look at what’s working, what’s not. (Which, as I shared with my Chaos to Calm participants, is crucial if you want to reduce that overwhelm.)
What you need:
- A blank (slate) piece of paper (or doc) + pen/pencil (or keyboard)
- Your calendar
- Time to think (carpool line, bath, closet, headphones, behind a closed door…)
At a glance:
I love being able to see things (whether it’s my business vision, project plan, or this monthly plan) on one page. On this blank slate, I’ll write down my focus for that month – headings with specific actions that’ll get me there. Some months that page is filled up. Others, it’s minimal. Totally depends on what I need for that month.
