Plan your Month

The start of the month is an excellent time to get ready to embrace the new month’s adventures and opportunities ahead of you.

Sit down and plan all your events, projects, appointments, and tasks, and anything else that you’ll have on the month ahead. This will help you stay organized.

Outsmart the pleasure principle

We sometimes say yes to an opportunity simply because it is in the distant future and filling out our planner makes us feel more productive. Saying yes is also easier than saying no. It takes less time and requires no thoughtful explanation. But, when the event comes, we sometimes start to regret our decision.

Sigmund Freud famously referred to these short-term gains for long-term pains as the pleasure principle, our tendency as humans to seek pleasure and avoid pain. When we immediately say yes, we are met with a positive response from the requester, which makes us feel good. However, the pain shows up later down the line, when we actually have to follow through.
