It turned out to be a nice day here in Central Ontario! I went out for breakfast this morning, and it was quite mild outside. A far cry from the freezing rain that graced us with its presence yesterday. Even Shaun said he nearly landed on his butt in the parking lot last night, so I didn’t feel so bad when I almost fell earlier in the day!
There’s a lot going on here today. I’m learning how to not double up my to do list when I don’t get things done the day before, but it still means I have a lot to do today because some things can’t be moved.
For example, today is the last day to submit for this year’s New Year, New Habits bundle. It’s looking right now like we’ll have about 30 products as of right now, but you never know how many more will submit at the last minute. I’m bad for waiting right until the deadline myself or asking for an extension, I know we’re going to have a great bundle to start the year!
There’s still a few more hours to get your products in if you have something you were thinking of sharing.
And because I’m all about the to-do list this week, today’s read is an oldie-but-goodie from the archives…
Today’s Read: 5 Reasons Your To-Do List Doesn’t Always Get Done
There’s always so much going on in the online world that sometimes it’s really hard to keep your focus on what you know you need to be doing and being consistent at getting it done. At least, that’s always been my experience.
I don’t know about you, but I start every day with a to-do list. The sad thing about that is that on a lot of days, there’s not much that gets done. Other things crop up, I go down rabbit holes in a completely different direction, or sometimes I’m just plain old undproductive with a capital UN.
What about you? Did you make a to-do list for the day? Are you following it, or are you off in another direction?
If you are, don’t feel too bad. There’s a statistic floating around out there that says approximately 41% of items on most people’s to-do lists never get done. Part of the reason for that is because we don’t always make the right kind of to-do lists.
Here are five reasons your to-do list doesn’t always get done:
And now, here are your deals for today…
