I always look at back to school time as a time of fresh starts, even if it has been decades since I last had first day of school jitters. You can use that sense of a blank slate to help you prepare for the increasingly busier days into the end of the year.
Many of us with families have our schedules shift as schools get back into gear. Even if you don’t have kids, traffic patterns change and schedules that may have been looser to accomodate vacationing clients and colleagues are back to the regular hectic pace.
We all need reminders to re-visit, re-think, re-energize–maybe a quick ‘school supply’ shopping trip to get a few organizing essentials could do the trick. Or perhaps, actually use the calendar functions on your smartphone and have it synch with your desktop or laptop. Clean out the email box and set some mail rules. A fresh start goes a long way to getting your languishing projects back on track!
