Yesterday my wife asked me if got a new planner. I was a little nonplussed for just a bit because I hadn't. But she continued, "Well, I saw a box from Franklin, so assumed you did." That's when my man brain finally snapped to what she meant. I ordered refills of the guts of my … Continue reading 2020 Planner Setup
"Time Management" experts seem to encourage getting everything out of your mind and into your trusted collection device - like a planner or app. I've heard the term 'brain dump' used many times over the past number of years. I became familiar with the term 'grasscatcher' list over 35 years ago. Brain dumps or grasscatcher … Continue reading Overwhelmed by Distractions?
I'm sure I'm not the only person who spends a great deal of time pondering goals and how to reach them. Recently I decided to rethink my long term and intermediate goals to help me gain more focus.
