I love the smell of new office supplies. Going back-to-school shopping at Staples was my heaven. And I love planning so much that I plan my planning.
How about you? Do you use an intersecting system of 3 different color-coded calendars, or are you holding on tenuously to your “keeping it all up here” [points to brain] system?
Either way, I’m glad you’re here.
We officially have 7.5 weeks left, not only in this year but in this decade.
I’m officially naming 2020 the year of clarity because…you know…20/20. 👀
One of my favorite quotes is:
Money loves clarity.
I’m pretty sure my friend Barbara Huson, author of Sacred Success, was the one who coined that phrase. (Although I see it used without credit a lot on the interwebs. Side note: credit your sources folks!)
You know what else loves clarity?
Your goals! Your dreams! Your desires!
And you know what you need for clarity?
