Have you ever read the children's book, "The Phantom Tollbooth"? In it we meet the Terrible Trivium, demon of petty tasks and worthless jobs, ogre of wasted effort, and monster of habit. Our hero Milo asks,
"But why bother?"
"Because my young friends," he muttered sourly, "what could be more important than doing unimportant things? If you stop to do enough of them, you'll never get to where you're going". He punctuated his last remark with a villainous laugh.
Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! I do so love that part of the Wizard of Oz as they walk in lock step along the yellow brick road. But truthfully, who has time for that?
Welcome to Part 2 of our Digital Life Series. Today we're diving into a foundational app, calendars! Most of us already have a calendar on our phone but let's talk about how to transition from our day planners to our online calendars.
As the holiday season rolls out the red carpet some of us sigh in delight. Just as many of us sigh, feeling "meh". That feeling that the magic of the season just isn't what it once was. We look around and just can't seem to get into the flow of the season. Even when in your heart you're positive this is your favorite season.
I have a pillow that sits in my living room that reads, "Support your local wildlife, have children." This nicely sums up that I think my children, now teens, are mostly feral. However, Suzanna Kaye, professional organizer has a super sweet awesome 7 year old, so there is still a great deal of hope at her house.
Check out this great facebook live (okay, facebook video that was recorded in advance but aired at the same time as the live).
If you're reading this than chances are you understand why they say the only constant in this world is death and taxes. There's nothing easy about either.
Sorrow and grief can weigh us down and make the simplest decision harder so of course you're surrounded by stuff that needs you to make decisions.
You know I have more than a few notebooks right? In a previous facebook live I let you peek into my closet at my stock (see it here). I just love a fresh notebook. Don't get me wrong I'm all for going paperless but the act of writing things down is part of how I think.
