Slayin Dragons!!

This week I am energized! I’ve just returned from a fabulous business cruise with other Handmade Beauty business owners. What a wealth of knowledge, sharing and yes fun! During the Indie Business cruise a friend/business owner said something to me that really stuck. I told her about being overwhelmed and just not feeling like I could get everything done and she said to me! “You gotta line up your dragons, get out your slingshot and start knocking those dragons down!” This has so stuck with me! There is something about visualizing myself in my armor and just taking down dragons one slingshot at a time. Instead of looking at the overall picture and everything I needed to do, I made a list of things I needed to do just for the day, not the week or month or even year, but the day! I started attacking my list one thing at a time, no procrastinating just slinging! By the end of the day I had crossed off everything on my list and I was amazed! I felt such a sense of accomplishment. So now everyday, I set up my daily dragon list and one by one I TAKE THEM DOWN! Sometimes all that we have to do in any area of our life can seem so overwhelming that it almost makes us do nothing. But make your lists people, just a few things and when you’ve done those things add a few more, then at the end of the week look at all the lists and see everything that you’ve accomplished! You will be so proud of yourself! So I am now officially Dawn Fitch...Dragon Slayer!

What are your dragons?
