Just Keep Swimming…

This brings a smile to my face.  Whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed with all that I want to accomplish, I think of this.

Using Time Effectively – Thank You Twitter!

I must admit that I have been having a TERRIBLE time getting things done.  Or really, what i should say is that i am having trouble finishing individual projects.  I have not problem bouncing around and doing tiny bits of things on different various projects – it’s the ability to focus on one thing at a time that is eluding me right now.

So, while I “should” be focusing on getting something productive accomplished……..I wandered over to Twitter at 4:30am this morning.  Because how best could I spend my time than to gaze a random 200 letter (or so) – mostly spam-like postings from people I don’t know…lol.

Someone posted a link to an article about the “4 hour work day” (http://virl.com/d9daa/) – not to be confused with the “4 hour work week” ala Tim Ferris……..I guess the post could have been titled the “20 hour work day”…..but it wasn’t..

So anyway…….I found the article to be filled with great nuggets of helpfulness :)

The author of the article, Scott Young, talks about not looking at work as something that needs to be done in a set amount of hours.  He says we should keep 2 lists – one of daily goals/tasks and one with weekly goals.  And also mentions that if we find that we get our daily tasks completed sooner than later……then DON’T do more for that day.  He equates it to running a major marathon – and running as hard as fast as you can – then getting to the finish line and you find that it has been moved another mile up the road. YIKES!

I’m going to put some of the strategies Scott suggests to the test tomorrow.  Check out his article here:  http://virl.com/d9daa/

Come back here after you’ve read it so we can chat about it :)

Very…um…Unique Homemade Slippers

I just received this through e-mail and just HAD to put it up here. I bet someone would purchase these on eBay!

NOTE:  I DID NOT make these!

It is somewhat embarrassing to admit, but Christmas is tight this year. Therefore, I’ve decided that I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes as soon as possible. You’ll most likely agree that it’s a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I’ve included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

I’ve attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself….
