"......Now I know a few of you are panicking that you are not able to finish your ufo’s in time each month…..
I thought a couple of organisational hints might help…….
I love Cath’s idea of allocating 12 months to do 12 finishes at most….anything else is a bonus! So……don’t expect to get ALL of your ufo’s done in one year….. as my boss used to say,
“You can’t eat an elephant in one bite!”
I like to break this idea down even further……. I created a sort of year overview planner on an A3 sheet and jotted in things in each month that would take my time like birthdays, weddings, births, (where I'd have to make things) or times I'm away (perhaps on holiday), and then fitted in ufo's to suit the space I had available......helped sort things out in my head a little better when I'd juggled it around on paper a bit first. You see, I'm a bit of a visual person....I like to see it on paper....leave it alone for a while in my head and there's a mad hatter's party going on up there!!!!!
It’s not foolproof as there’s always things that crop up unexpectedly (like sickness and flu), but with a disorganised brain like mine, it helps!
If you think this idea might work for you, you can download a copy of my yearly overview planner here….
My boss also told me……
“if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”!!!! ..........."
wise woman she is!!!!
Anyways....hope this helps!
Lets continue to 'reach for the stars'
