A Little Tip on Working with Distractions

A Little Tip on Working with Distractions

A Little Tip on Working with Distractions Dear Blog, I've been away for a while and caught up with distractions. It happens. Hopefully, it's clear from here on out. Of course, now that I say that... You know what? I'm not going there. I'm focusing on positive energy, optimism, and productivity. While I haven't been blogging, I *have* been making updates to my websites. I run this site as well as my publisher site. And I do have some cool news! Readers can now purchase ebooks directly through my publisher! So far, Shattered and Redeemed are available, *and* with fancy new covers, I might add! Signed paperbacks are also available if you prefer physical copies. I have a limited number of books with original covers, so be sure to let me know if you're interested! And you can purchase directly on the website with a credit card. Over the next few days, I'll be working on putting together the rest of the updates. I'm also hoping to have the...

Goals, Productivity, and Happiness

Goals, Productivity, and Happiness Dear Blog, Over the last couple of weeks, I've written about tracking progress, so today I thought I’d share some results and try to offer a tip or two. I’d also like to stress, again, the importance of writing it down. I didn’t do so hot last week taking my own advice. But my husband’s been home this whole time so I’m cutting myself some slack.

With the exception of one day, I’ve been writing my minimum daily word count of 250 words, with lots of days well over that. Yesterday, I “donated” words to make up for that so my word tracking spreadsheet still looks beautiful. Should I be happy about that? Shouldn’t I be disappointed that I didn’t actually meet the goal?

May – A New Month For Productivity

May – A New Month For Productivity

May - A New Month For Productivity Dear Blog, Tomorrow starts a new month. Are you ready? I didn't bother designing my bullet journal for the months of March and April. March kind of went by like a fast-moving roller coaster through a dark underground tunnel, and April...well, I don't really know what happened to it. But May, with its warmer weather and the start of getting back to normal after the pandemic, brings lots of promise. It might have something to do with the fact that we're hiring out most of the remainder of our kitchen remodel (we're still down to studs). That has taken off some of the burden and not surprisingly my husband and I are getting along a lot more now. :) So, anyway, I *will* be including the month of May in my monthly planner. I have a lot of big plans for being productive and I'd like to actually write it all down so I don't forget everything I've done. I'm...
