Some Things to Consider First

Keep in mind that the more you customize and tailor the selection of tools and technology to fit your unique needs and preferences, the better. We tend to try everything new and shiny, but this can lead to overwhelm! You don’t want that.

So what can you do? Think about where you need support the most and what you prefer. Is it app-based? PC-based? Pen-and-paper-based? Remember, it is fine to seek support on how to integrate these tools effectively into your daily routines.

The key for any of these to work for you is CONSISTENT USE. Without doing something consistently, it will be hard for you to develop reliable habits and routines around them. Let’ get into these.
