Three Things a Day

It seems like I need a kick in the butt.

After a boost of energy last month helped me get tons of things off my list, I am once again procrastinating. So the lists are back out and being put into action. I will force myself to do at least three things on my lists a day. I learned the “Just three things a day” strategy from my boss years ago. The idea being if you try to do to many things everyday you will end up not accomplishing much. Another boss of mine taught me to do the thing you want to avoid the most first thing in the morning. He said that then you could get it over with and not worry about it all day.

I will still be doing everyday chores like dishes, paying bills and laundry but I need to get those long put off inconviences done!

So far today I have done one of the things. My youngest son is now signed up for Strong Start. It’s a free parent partcipation drop-in at most of the local schools. I signed him up on-line which is handy.

Two more things to check off my list today so I’d better get going…


Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. My mom told me that too—just 3 things a day. Must work if all the wise folk are saying it. 🙂
