Anyone else go all weak at the knees about stationery? Highlighter pens, Post-It notes, paper clips and notebooks – I’m a kid in a candy store in a shop that sells funky, colourful supplies.
Combine that with my love fill-in-the-blank worksheets and I’m in my own kind of bliss.
The concept of this very website came out of my idea to create a binder folder with colour coded tabbed sections for each area of my life.
I figured it was kind of like project managing a new house build with organised sections for plumbing, electricity, interior design and outdoor landscaping.
My life needed sorting out in so many different areas, so I broke it down into – family, health, personal growth, fun, money, etc.
I felt a Project ME coming on….
Naturally I headed off to buy some supplies!
Giving focus to the individual areas that make up my life has been the key to getting better organised and finding the happy balance I always craved but never maintained.
It’s a lot easier to see what’s working and what’s not – and then hash out a plan to make things better. I set goals for myself and create small step action plans to make them happen.
And that’s what I’m here to help you do too.
Creating your own Project Me is the key to feeling more in control of your life.
Whatever small, baby steps you can manage to take towards making your life run more smoothly, the happier you’ll feel.
Are you up for it?
Here’s your 3 Easy Steps for kick starting your Project ME.
Get a clear picture of the 8 different areas that make up your life. What’s going well? What totally sucks?
I created the Project Me Life Wheel Tool to make this super easy for you. Just pop your details into the box below and you’ll get your wheel sent to you immediately – along with full driving instructions. It couldn’t be easier! (Here’s more information about the Project Me Life Wheel® and how it’ll help you.)
Get a binder folder to create your Project Me. (You did see that coming, right?)
Having a dedicated place to keep your Project Me Life Wheel® and your printable Action Sheets shows yourself that you mean business. It gets you to treat your life like the important project it is.
By popular request, I’ve created a binder cover and added it to the Action Sheets page.
Set up a regular Date With Yourself to focus on your Project Me. Do a light assessment of how each area of your life is going. What needs a bit of attention, some brainstorming, solutions? Fill in the blanks on your Action Sheets, get stuff out of your head and onto paper, make plans for whatever small steps you’ll take.
This can be done weekly or monthly depending on you. The more regularly the better. Schedule it in and make it a priority because you are important!
If you can escape the house and head to a local coffee shop, great. Otherwise, tell your family you need some Project ME time and hang up a Do Not Disturb sign.
Or team up with a friend! I’ve created a special POWER PAL PACK filled with printable action sheets, prompts and guidelines that’ll help you join forces to work on your Project Me together. Think of it as your own personal Mastermind Group.
I’ve been meeting up with my ‘Power Posse’ for seven years now and we all credit our sanity to these monthly meet-ups! Problems never have time to fester and grow when you tackle them regularly and have an accountability buddy to hold you to things you say you’re going to do.
Whatever you do, don’t wait to get started. Schedule in a hot date with yourself and get ready to become the Project Manager of your life!
Remember to sign up for your free Project Me Life Wheel® and start receiving your Monday Motivators to get you off the starting blocks. Each week I’ll send you more ideas and inspiration to help you with your Project Me.
