Years ago I used to be really good at keeping and following to do lists. I am actually a bit OCD when it comes to writing down lists, ideas, business plans, choreography,workouts and all manner of things. I also have sketches of clothing designs (the business I was in before fitness), grafitti, pages of business logos, doodles, random art work, short stories and a few books I started but never managed to finish.
I have notebooks and notebooks full of the stuff! In fact, I have a love of notebooks, and buy them in all shapes, sizes, colors and designs, and I also have a wicked fetish for writing in different colors. When multicolor gel pens came out a few years ago, I was like a pig in mud...I had every color and every brand. Heck, I just bought a new pack of them at the art supply store just last week, the metallic, irridescent kind! Every word I write with those is all shiny and gorgeous, glowing in the light! ;)
My notebook fetish in full effect. I have at least a couple hundred of these, some filled and some still waiting on me... I admit, I do have a problem! ;)
For me, opening up a notebook to a fresh clean page with a carefully chosen pen in hand is a very satisfying thing. I never get on the train without a notebook and pens in my bag. Having something to write on and with at all times is a must!
When I die and someone takes the time to look through all these notebooks, they will either come to the conclusion that I was a true genius, or either was stark, raving crazy! ;)
I sometimes forget what I put in these things! I did this a few years ago. I was trying to design my own tattoo. Never got the tattoo, but will end up doing something with this!
I have been so scattered lately trying to keep up with a million different tasks in different areas of my life. Business things, work related stuff, etc.
Work related stuff. Who knows when I wrote this. Notes for a step and kickboxing class...
Back to my to do lists! If I recall, they helped me keep things in my life more organized and I never missed a beat. Do 'to do' lists help you stay more organized, too? I used to keep one on the fridge, right next to a pic of Glady's Portugues' abs. Both helped me to whip everything right into shape! ;)
