Constantly striving to make my ideal day a reality, I have never hit the goal. It does not stop me. It should not stop you.

If I could hit this perfect schedule 3 days a week – I would feel amazing. This leaves no time for errands and shopping of course, but this is an ideal day. Michael Hyatt created an ideal week and I am working on doing the same. Much more margin built into the week to get other things done. Margin is necessary.
The key, in my opinion is planning and prepping. Makes the day go much smoother. Show me your ideal days, weeks, whatevers!
