3 Simple Ways to Balance Your Day

Do you sneer at the friend that jumps out of bed at 5:30am ready to start her day? Or does your brain start to slump by 4:00 in the afternoon - and you're useless by 8:00? Or maybe you just do whatever is needed to get your work done regardless of your own energetic needs? We usually create a to-do list and focus on [...]

What Good is a Checklist if You Don’t Use It?

From a time management stand point I love checklists.  When you use a checklist you've created a process, stepping stones that allow you to logically move from step A to step B.  In addition, you help reduce the potential of overwhelm as you no longer need to try to remember everything involved in your project.

It snuck up on you.  All of sudden your perfectly planned week has turned into chaos.  Forget "too many tasks to do, not enough time" you are drowning in tasks, AND appointments, AND meetings, AND obligations, AND . . .
