Would you believe there’s only one more day of this book? It’s gone on much longer than 3 weeks, because I have lapsed here and there, but I have it almost finished!
Today’s theme, again, is “do it now.” The writing is based on David Allen’s book, “Getting Things Done.” I’ve read it, it’s a good book, and I agree with a lot of the principles. Crystal focuses on doing things RIGHT NOW that will take 2 minutes to do. Like scheduling an appointment, or(nudge) mailing in that rebate form. Whoops.
When I try to “do it now” I often end up neglecting the task I’m in the middle of. I need to learn to “write it down now and do it later! That brings me back to the notepad I was supposed to start carrying around with me.
Facebooking writing this blog post I remembered I wanted to make bread for tomorrow morning so I set up the bread maker. That worked great until I realized I’d thrown out the [expired] powdered milk. We’ll see how it turns out in the morning.
- Tidy the kitchen before bed
- Work on my mega-project of cleaning my office
- Work on a list of “do it now” tasks and start working through them
