Recently, well, half a year ago,( but that's pretty recent, ain't it?), I did a business course with Mark Silver of Heart of Business. Six classes that were illuminating, and inspiring and almost every superlative I can think of. I really love Mark's approach and I have been following him for over two years, and that's before I joined twitter! I know I gained alot from it even though, to be honest, my business is not taking off yet and I have still so much to implement from that course alone.
Well truth is I'm kind of ashamed to say that I didn't even listen completely to the last lesson, entitled: " Structures and Systems". Only now I am beginning to understand why.One of the hardest things for me to do is to create a structure for myself in my life. It's like I am rebeling against it. Somehow, it's always gotta be something from the outside that does it for me. Maybe, yes, there is a slight chance I am being a little hard on myself, but I have a theory why it's so hard to create a structure for me to work in - and it's connected to schooling. I won't get into it now, but I am finding that creating a structure, a routine, gives me alot more freedom and more importantly, a sense of comfort and much less stress.
I wonder what it's like for you? What methods do you use to create structure and a routine in your lives that isn't imposed from the outside?
