There are two types of people; those with meticulously curated diaries full of bespoke post-its and colour-coordinated appointment notes, and then there are the disorganised others. For years I drifted aimlessly in the latter camp, but writing this blog forced me to upgrade my ‘planning skills’ alot, and I’ve learned a few things along the way, which I’m sharing in this post! If organisation doesn’t come naturally to you and you find yourself overwhelmed when considering the wiry tangle of chaotic strands that make up life – don’t panic, it can be done and hopefully these tips will help you! As I’ve seen with Personal Training clients over the years, organisation will categorically help you to succeed in reaching your fitness goals.

NO ORDINARY DAY !
I can relate to the famous C. S. Lewis quotation ‘Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but you look back and everything is different’; part of the reason why a quarter of people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions by the end of January is because they expect too much, too quickly. We live in a fast-paced ‘disposable’ society – instant gratification is consumed, then we’re off in search of our next hit! When I learned of the Starbucks No Ordinary Day Latte campaign (which caters for all sorts of customisations!), it made me consider the fix. To make these resolutions stick, I think the key is to decidedly kick off the change by planning an extraordinary day – and then repeating parts of it ever-more regularly whilst having patience! It’s not about one giant leap (dramatic as that may sound), but rather small steps and consistency, and 366 of these will sum to No Ordinary Year! Click MORE to see my thoughts on how to plan it out!
