Hello, friends! Hope you had a wonderful long weekend. If nothing else, this is at least a short week! 😉
Checking in quick as we spent a little too much time in the pool yesterday, got back home kind of late, and I am super sunburned. At 31, you’d think I’d know to wear sunscreen. But I did not. I planned to do lots of blog things this weekend, but the weather was glorious. Spending time in the sunshine with your family is good for the soul. I did delete 15,000 emails, though. I feel so much lighter!
This month’s theme was about Time Management. Is it the most exciting topic? No. But I need all of the help I can get in that area! I had planned to read another book, but J highly suggested “The One Thing” by Gary Keller. He read it and has changed the way he works and lives. Honestly.
If you’re a multitasker, this book is for you. I try to do a million things at once and am stressed all the time. And I’m not accomplishing anything – at least not well. For example, I’m currently eating dinner, writing this post, watching a movie, and drying a load of laundry. It’s a struggle and most days I don’t know where to focus my concentration. That is the point of this book – focusing on the ONE THING. As the site says, “… only the ability to dismiss distractions and concentrate on your ONE thing stands between you and your goals. The ONE Thing is about getting extraordinary results in every situation.”
My thoughts? I need to read it again. Work has been crazy this month, giving me little desire to work on blog-related things or read blog-related things. I know. I found myself unwinding a lot at night with a glass of wine and garbage tv and being disorganized all around. I rushed through the book but am going to start fresh this month. It offers a lot of useful tools for those of us who are still searching for the “one thing” that drives us. And I’ve seen the changes J has implemented because of it, so I feel it’s worth another look. I know I can get a lot out of it with an extra glance.
Have you read this? What were your thoughts?
Join us for June’s Book Challenge and Chat: a book that will bring you happiness. I’m going to read “Tiny Beautiful Things” by Cheryl Strayed. I’m excited!
