In college, I started a small shop called SoulScripts, just for fun, and now it's a widely recognized brand, houses a full fledged movement (Your Brokenness is Welcome Here), and provides employment opportunities to college women working to fund their education. On top of that, it led to further creative endeavors like speaking, writing books, and creating a variety of resources to help everyday women across the to live their most intentional lives.

Practical Ways to Stay Active With a Crazy Schedule

Time Management

When I was in college, I was a queen at scheduling, time management, and goal setting. My weeks were ordered around my class schedule.

Then, I graduated and life happened and I suddenly found myself juggling the role of soon to be wife, small business owner, and influencer.

And then we got married.

And moved five times in a year.

I became a pretty sucky friend and didn’t prioritize family time well. Every day felt a little less ordered and a little more chaotic. I’d work til all hours and considered it a win if I got real pants on in the morning.

Being basically a toddler at marriage, running a company that grew into a team of six, and navigating all that comes with moving several times is all a huge privilege but isn’t exactly easy.

And I burned out.

I would wake up with anxiety many mornings. The lack of order and consistency in my days robbed me of well…me.

About a month ago, I said ENOUGH is enough. Because yes although life was busy, my lack of discipline wasn’t life’s fault. It was mine.

Since then, I’ve been focusing on getting back to the basics.

Now, my weeks look really different already…with so much more space and structure. It’s not boring. It’s not even hard. It just takes a decision and incremental action.

If you’re feeling like your life is out of control, here’s one thing I’ve implemented into my weekly routine that has been LIFE CHANGING:

Every Sunday, I sit down and plan my week. I set my attainable personal, financial, spiritual, and physical goals. Then, build in the action steps I’ll take to achieve those attainable goals. Then, we BUILD in a way to celebrate what was accomplished that week with a Friday date night or weekend bonfire.

Planning not just to do important stuff or achieve goals but also to celebrate doing them sets me up for success because I’ve resolved to intentionally set important, yet attainable goals — and built in the time and action steps it takes to check those off ahead of time.

Where do you want to go this week, this month, this year?

How you prepare predicts if you’ll get there.

I'm Jordan Lee Dooley. I'm just a simple Indiana girl, writing, speaking, and handing out free hugs left and right. In college, I started a blog called SoulScripts, just for fun, and to speak life and truth into any peers that might have stumbled upon it. I never imagined it'd end up reaching hundreds of thousands, turn into books, speaking, and more. But hey, it's true: when you just say yes to God right where you are, He does more than you could ever ask or imagine. Let's help you find your yes and start walk in your gifting, too. Sound good?
