You need a pair of shorts. Off you go to your favorite store. You find the shorts and a top that will look great with them. If you buy three tops you will get a better price. The necklace laid out with one of the tops would just finish the outfit. On the way out, you see a pair of sandals you like. They fit perfectly and look nice too. Man, if the shoe fits you’d better stock up. You buy the sandals in five colors. When you get home and try to squeeze your purchases into your

However, that isn’t going to happen and I refuse to knock myself out to even try and attempt it. What I do instead is make a plan for the year using my zone plan.

Attendees came not only from all over the USA but also from Canada, Japan, Jamaica, and the Netherlands. We received a valuable handout with research abstracts of ongoing studies as well as notes and handouts from the pres
You need some face powder. Your favorite brand is having a sale. You spend so much (about $10 more than the face powder) and you get this lovely cosmetic bag filled with free samples. You think – “I could use another lipstick.”- so off you go happily to the cosmetic section of your favorite store. Now, you have your powder, a lipstick you don’t need, and a bag with cosmetics that were not on your needs list. Hmmm. That is not a terrible thing, until you put your bag in your b
Why did I want this project done in the first place? Is my vision for the end result still true? Is it worth the effort? Do I need to rework my timeline and expectations? Maybe you are trying to do too much too fast. Life does need to go on while you are working on this vision.
List all the things you have accomplished so far. Focus on this instead of what has not yet been accomplished.
Think about breaking some of the tasks into even smaller parts and reworking your timeline
