Earlier this month I realized I was coming up on this moment – number one hundred blog! I’ve been trying to think about what I wanted to do, something that would be different. I couldn’t come up with much, and it occurred to me that if you’re a more recent reader, you might not have seen some of my earlier posts. Here comes 6 of my most favorite posts (I thought about a top 10, but it seemed too much, yet I couldn’t narrow it down any more than 6!):
Being mindful of your present actions will save you time and energy, increasing your productivity, and allowing you to spend your time where you most want.
An odd synchronicity with “intention” in my life and learning (NAPO conference) and how it relates to how we spend our time inspired me to write this – sharing, not the need to be more productive, but rather just increase how conscious we are about how we’re spending our time.
Life is complicated enough without our many tasks adding to the demands on our time and energy. “Simplify, simplify” as Henry David Thoreau said, and here I talk about one way to help you simplify those tasks and make life a little easier.
Sometimes we have a moment, a sort of epiphany, when we realize that we’re buying things or have collected things that do not reflect the actual life we’re leading. There are several components of this and can help lead us to leading the life we want.
Possessions are unavoidable, space is a concrete limitation, but considering things in terms of time can prompt a fresh view of the things that you own.
We’ve all accidentally started multi-tasking, digging into the dreaded junk drawer, and dread dealing with the various items, and often founder in making decisions. Save yourself the tedium and simplify things by dealing with each item as you handle it.
These six are where so much of my passion lies and I hope you enjoy them. It was hard to eliminate so many posts, and I’m full of ideas for more to come. It’s such a long way from the feeling when I wrote my first one, unsure whether I had more than 5 or 10 in me.
Happy 100th! I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas – drop me a line anytime. 🙂
