A little off topic at face value but definitely something we could all do to improve ourselves by practicing these 10 ways to get things done. 

I can’t take credit for writing this list but I can absolutely tell you that it works.  If you wrote this list, please let me know so I can give proper attribution. 

1) Wake Up Early –
START WORKING ON THINGS BEFORE PEOPLE AND DISTRACTIONS EVEN WAKE UP.

2) Make a list –
WRITE YOUR TASKS DOWN SO YOU HAVE A PLAN OF ACTION THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

3) Limit your time –
YOU TAKE EXACTLY THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOU GIVE YOURSELF TO COMPLETE TASKS. SET A DEADLINE.

4) Treat yourself –
REWARD PROGRESS. TREAT YOURSELF EVERY TIME YOU CHECK ITEMS OFF YOUR LIST.

5) Pick up the pace –
WORK FASTER. TRY TO GET THINGS DONE QUICKER.

6) Limit distractions –
DON’T LEAVE THE TV ON IN THE BACKGROUND. CONCENTRATE ON ONE TASK AT A TIME.

7) Ignore the unnecessary –
TRY TO LIMIT THE TASKS YOU NEED TO DO. IF IT IS NOT NECESSARY, IGNORE IT.

8) Start at the beginning – 
BREAK YOUR TASKS DOWN, AND START WITH THE SIMPLEST, EASIEST STEP YOU CAN THINK OF. 

9) Batch tasks together – 
DO YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE STORE? MIGHT AS WELL PICK UP THE DRY CLEANING ON YOUR WAY BACK.

10) Delegate – 
YOU ONLY HAVE SO MUCH TIME. PAY SOMEONE TO HANDLE TASKS FOR YOU.

A powerful agent is the right word. Whenever we come upon one of those intensely right words…the resulting effect is physical as well as spiritual, and electrically prompt.
– Mark Twain (quoted by William Dean Howell in “My Mark Twain”)

What is perfect?

If you have a job that pays what you need or more, a house that is ready to welcome you when you come home, and a lifestyle worthy of praise but have a broken marriage – which one determines your happiness?

What good is a job if your marriage sucks?  What good is a house, clean and presentable or not?  It doesnt matter – none of it!  

I don’t know about you but for me, if the harmony in my marriage relationship is absent – life really sucks. 

Which brings me to ask a question:  

If I died tonight, could I say I gave it everything I had 100% of the time?  Could I say I wanted to give 100% of the time?

What’s really more important:  

  • Doing your nails or doing your spouse?  I know that will come of vulgar to some but for the majority of us it makes perfect sense. 
  • Watching a TV show or spending time discovering your spouse?  
  • Reading books about (pick your entertainment poison) or reading about how to invest in the most important human relationship in the world?
