I subscribe to a few blog posts I was convinced would help me get organized, manage my time effectively, and bring a peaceful efficiency to my life and my routine.
These are my favorites:
Goodlife Zen: practical inspiration for a happier life
zen habits: smile, breathe and go slowly
Time Management Ninja
Over the last year, almost one year to the day, I've been sending those posts into folders, confident I would check the folders weekly to read and learn. I thought this was efficient and organized.
Not so. The folders are full of unread posts and articles. Out of sight, out of mind.
Visiting my favorite blogs has also fallen by the wayside as I've focused on other projects. I can't let that continue. For one thing, I value the friends I've made through blogging and don't want to lose them. Besides that, I've signed up for the 2011 A to Z April Blog Challenge (see the logo and link in my sidebar). Participating in that challenge requires a commitment to check out the blogs of other participants, to cheer them on in comments.
If you have mastered the art of doing it all in an organized and non-stressful manner, please help me out here. How do you do it?
