Tuesday's Tips: Staying Organized

ps: Did you enter the No Tricks - Just Treats Giveaway? If not, scroll down or click here to enter.

This week, I am going to share with you about keeping organized. As you begin ballet lessons, it is not too important, but when you start formal dance training, it plays a huge part in building your career.

This may sound crazy, but do you know how I got back to staying on top of From Plies to Pirouettes? FlyLady. I'm not kidding. Now, us dancers definitely do not have enough time to make it to classes and school on time and be able to clean the house. But it is a HUGE help to your mother. Once you have a good day, and everything is organized, take notes on how you managed your time, and use the same schedule everyday.

Now, I am going to take you step-by-step through instructions to get started on a balanced ballet life.

Go to www.flylady.com and scroll down until you see How To Get Started. Click on the link, and then select Join FlyLady Here!. Read through the email group contents, and click on the Bigtent link. Click on Sign Up and follow the steps to create an account. Don't worry, it's free.

After completing this, you will be at the FlyLady homepage on Bigtent. You can browse around for a bit, and then click on the Files tab. Here, you will see a list of Control Journals. The Student Control Journal is the best for me, but you can pick any one you want. Click Download, and print it out. You can choose to staple it, bind it, or what works best, put it in a binder. Now you have your Student Control Journal set up!

I can't take you through every page, so read this and start doing whatever is scheduled for the day. I love this because we can write our dance schedule in it!

Next Step:

This is optional, but since it's cutting so close to Christmas, I printed out the Holiday Control Journal and put it in the back of my Student Control Journal. Now you are on your way to be organized!
