This year begin a new habit by creating one calendar with all your personal and professional appointments in one place.   Take time to enter all birthdays, anniversaries, doctor & dentist appointments, etc…Date Book

If you have kids, pull their school calendars out and and write in early-release or days that their schools are closed.  Also include any special days like Picture Day, Spirit Week or any other date where they will want to dress up or take something to school.   This way you can be prepared ahead and not scrambling as you rush to get them out to school.

Lastly, be sure to enter time for yourself, aka Do Nothing Days.   We’ve just passed the official day – January 16th – but schedule your own!
