An At Home Mini Writing Retreat

I'm taking advantage of my husband's bridge tournament this weekend to wrap up a few projects I've been working on. Interrupted only by my need for a coffee refill and Katie Cat's need for attention, I've already made a big dent in my To Do List...and I still have today and tomorrow to FOCUS.

That's what it's all about.

1.  Make the list
2.  Set the priorities
3.  Focus

After years in the business world where multi-tasking was a good thing, I now find it counter-productive. One task at a time, one project at a time, one day at a time. That's what works best for me.

So it's hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go. "Saturday post" can now be crossed off my list. See you on Monday.

Sounds like a useful weekend of work. I might have been tempted by the Bridge though!

Let's see...focus? Oh, yeah, that's what I'm supposed to do. Now let me see...focus on what? Ah me! Maybe I'll go write a blog post.

Wish I were listing as much as you. Congrats.

Maybe I'll cross one two items off at the NCW retreat at SDR next month.

Pat - I hope your plan was successful. I've found too - I really have - that 'one thing at a time' is the only way I get things done.
