Where does a dentist appointment fit into this scheme of yours? Yes, I will floss more; a learning experience!

The day rarely goes as planned. A phone call can change it all.
Go with the flow. Change can be good.

I actually just had one of those moments. My husband forgot the plumber was going to be at our rental property this morning, and we have a 10 appt. in town. Too funny this question just came up. We will just improvise and keep moving forward!
Adjust and flex. Sometimes the best days are the sideways ones.
I try to get back to schedule as soon as possible

Like the movie...let it go
One phone call, email or text can change any plans I've made for any particular day.
Sometimes, as disciplined as we think we are, things go sideways. Sometimes you recover and sometimes it is a lost day!
Life goes on. You make whatever adjustments you need to make.
I have my DayTimer schedule prepared before the day begins but NO day in my world is "ROUTINE". As the day progresses, I adjust and adapt to the new circumstances as they present themselves.
My schedule is a roadmap but detours do occur along the way. In the end, I just hope I have had a productive day and accomplished as many of my goals as possible. Those things that DID NOT get done get rescheduled.
Tomorrow is another day to get things done and I look forward to it !

The day often goes sideways, depending on the curve ball thrown. Sometimes recovery is possible, other times not.
We let it go...A
my day could easily go "sideways"..... I usually save most of the day!!!
Stuff happens... and we have to adapt or perish.
You learn to rebound from what happens.
I go with the ebb and tide of life. Sometimes it is the unexpected things that happen that create the greatest lessons and joys.
Cant beging to tell you of the number of sideways days caused by computer, equipment, staffing, or other unexpected roadblocks.
Sometimes it's nice to not be in a rut. But the routine means I don't have o think much about it until I am fully awake
I simply reset my course and sail in the direction of my daily goals. No worries TeamCHI - Complete Home Inspections, Inc. ...
A day can go sideways in a good way! Like when someone you met months ago calls and wants to make an offer on a house.
Everyone, without exception, on this planet right now shares this: We all have never been here before right down to the moment we are in thus the show goes on until we leave. No two moments alike for anyone. How's that for adventure?

Is this dependent on which side of bed one gets out of?!?!

Perhaps a little of both, some times it has to go sideways to learn from it. I like my morning routine before anyone else gets in, it can be very productive
In real estate there is no normal day.
Especially in real estate, I realize that it's "normal" to require a Plan B, C, D, E, F and G.
I just move right on past it. I only worry about things I can control.
As long as the to do's get done things happen so we adjust.
Well organized by nature, I admit to working hard over the years to become more flexible.
You can't change Life Events, just go with it.
I make a plan for my days activities and then adjust as the day progresses. There are certain things that need to happen and I don't let my day run away without these things getting done.
I listened to a lot of mentors and successful people interviews, first hour of the morning is the most important, it charges the whole day. Be thoughtful;)
I plan some flex time into each of my days so when something unexpected comes up (this happens 95% of my days) I can handle it and not go sideways.
I have been in this business long enough to know the schedule does not always remain the same, and be ready to be flexible.
Good morning Michael. I start my day at 4 AM, two hours of social media, 45-60 minutes of workout, liquid breakfast of fruits and vegetables and then to office. If that can't happen, I just start again the next day.
And here I thought my morning routine was "life happens"...
The day continues marching forward.
