Write your plan the night before and supercharge your day.
The day was over. The kids in bed, the house quiet.
Time to sigh, breathe deep, and decide how to relax.
I glanced down and I caught sight of my daily index card plan I’d made that morning.

Oh well. I thought. That’s just my season of life right now.
Since I’ve started this blog, I’ve told people to be sure to plan their days. Just 10 minutes in the morning makes a big difference.

A plan made during the evening, however, has much more sticking power for two very potent reasons.
