Why plan seasonally? Each season brings its own events and responsibilities. For instance, if you live in a cold climate, winter brings the extra chore of shoveling snow regularly to clear a path for your car in the driveway. If you have a yard, spring brings the extra chores of gardening, weeding, mowing the lawn regularly again, etc. Though these may be considered minor changes, if you’re already on a tight schedule and overworked like most of are, these chores can get overwhelming fast. If you happen to be pursuing long-term goals on the side, guess which tasks get put aside to make room for these seasonal changes? You’ve got it. Suddenly the time you were using to write the great American novel is spent catching up on the laundry. Bummer.
