Holiday planning? Yes, holiday planning kicks off the Organized October Challenge 2015.
I know. I know. Everyone is freaking out about "how quickly October showed up" and you just aren't ready and you want to, as my friend, Sherry, playfully says, "Go in the backyard, swing on the swing and eat candy."
For this week, your focus is to get ready for the holidays.
Calendar - Plot It!!!
Look at your 2014 schedule. Odds are, the same events will show up this year. Put all of the holiday events you can imagine in your calendar.
Time Off - Schedule it!!!
Taking time off from work this holiday season? Submit it at work do it now or you might not be able to take your days off due to others already scheduling it.
Preparation Time - Schedule It!!!
Don't forget the prep work involved with parties, events, travel and more. Use the 2.5 rule. If you think it will take 1 hour, multiply that by 2.5 and book 2.5 hours in your schedule.
Travel - Book it!!!
If you are traveling in the next 3 months and you haven't booked your travel, DO IT NOW!!!
A few weeks ago we booked a trip and found prices high even at that time.
