Birth-Year Resolutions and Apps to help with Productivity

My500Words 31 Day Challenge – Day 4

My year has really kicked off at a drop and run rate. I was planning to come to the office a week before we officially started to come and clean and organise, both the space and my thoughts, but for some or other reason people were drastically in need to be sorted out and I ended up starting on Wednesday last week by giving 6 treatments and ending the week by having given 15! Not bad at all for January! Continue reading Birth-Year Resolutions and Apps to help with Productivity

Reinvention Year

I’ve so been in a rut these past couple of years and I need to just shake myself up a bit this year ’cause I’m tired of being in survival mode… Kinda scary but helluva exciting!

So this means that to be able to pursue my dream of writing I need to be in charge of my bread and butter daily stuff, and this area of my life has been a bit stagnant, so I definitely needed to step it up a bit. So…the minute I committed to the My500Words challenge, I started being busy in my working life! Which is kinda cool… and frustrating at the same time, because now I need to make other time to write as my day is now filled where last year it was quiet enough to fit writing in… Continue reading Reinvention Year

My New Favorite Phrase – from Jeff Goins’ You Are a Writer

I absolutely loved reading this stunningly simple guide to overcoming fear. And even though it is written for Writers, its principles can be applied to overcoming anyone’s fear of success! It’s simply brilliant. Thanks Jeff.
You are a Writer (so Start Acting like One), by Jeff Goins
is an exploration of what we are afraid of as aspiring authors, i.e. writers that aspire to be published, and Jeff describes his own journey of discovery. He continues though by giving solid, no nonsense in your face type of advice on getting on with it and write already!
I loved every moment of it. But I absolutely adore this one phrase he uses every now and then.
He gives a list of things to do or address, “There are three important parts…da..da..da.”
…and then he says: “Let me unpack that.”
He gives you a suitcase list full of goodies – neatly summarised – and then he proceeds to haul them out, one by one, hold them up to the light and turn them around and make you see them in detail. He unpacks it. SO FLIPPIN’ COOL!

       Let’s unpack those.

I.C.U. dude! Awesome language!
