Last year I pulled together a full list of resolutions for myself. I failed miserably.
So this year I have decided on one single resolution. To be more organized. Now, it has taken me until March to find the time to write a New Years resolution post.
This is a bad sign.
I’ve been doing a lot of research on line. Articles and blog posts on tips for organization and time management. I even created a Pinterest board on organization to store them all. Many of them lead back to one main root to making everyday feel more controlled.
The finding is that I need to get my ass out of bed earlier.
I am not what you would call a morning person. I have to set two alarms and sometimes hit snooze on both.
Maybe I should move to four, like this example I spotted on Pinterest last week…

It doesn’t help that I also have a toddler who is not a morning person. Clearly.
She is stating to follow in her mothers footsteps. That has to stop.
I wasn’t always like this. Back in college I woke up by 5:30 or 6 every morning. I would do laundry, homework, watch news, etc. I finished one of the top of my class while holding down 2-3 jobs at a once and even found plenty of time to have fun with my roommates.
I need to go back in time and grovel at the feet of my 20 year old self for tips. Maybe I can just get her to come back with me. That would be awesome.
I truly believe that if I can just manage to get a bit more organization into my daily routine, everything else will fall into place. I will have more time for reading, yoga & catching up with friends and family…all the things that I wishfully had on last year’s list.
Ideally, the next 9 months of 2013 will go better than the first three. Maybe there will be hope for this resolution after all.
