Now you are allowed to dream, contemplate, search for serenity and breathe. Take a vacation or a staycation and just be. What do you want to do for enjoyment? Fish, bike, swim, dive, garden, BBQ, sail, hike, golf, read, take an art class, drive across the USA, be a tourist in your own town or just chill.

For many school is out, business schedules aren’t as hectic and it is ok to visit that summer feeling of sun and fun or cool and relaxed!  You have earned it and when the beginning of August arrives and it’s back to school and the structured rat race is near,  then you can revisit the organizing plan again.

It will be time to reassess clothes, kitchens, patios, garages and any piles that may have accumulated in cars from the carefree summer days just to name a few! You will be ready after recharging and punching out for awhile. Studies have shown that people who take a break and take a vacation are happier in life and perform better throughout the year.

When you step away from the hustle you are able to experience another perspective on what is really important and why you are driven to do what you do all year.

Face it you have already gone through half the year and you want to be in gear for the fall season, the new school year, new work contracts, new clients, associations, teams and whatever else will lead you into the end of 2017. Before you know it the Holidays will be upon us!

Ask yourself is my schedule controlling me or am I controlling my schedule?? Where did the first half of this year go? Now go ahead and take time to be off the grid today and in the coming weeks. Lets make a plan to catch up and do some organizing and streamlining towards the end of this summer.
