For the last couple of months I’ve been attempting to get things done and also trying to help others do the same (I realise that an update on that post is still due!), but I’ve not really been doing so well. At all! As you can see from my latest Bitchbuzz article, I’m still not managing to slow down, concentrate and get organised in my life. Whereas some people I know work too hard and never have time to play, I’m the complete opposite. Sounds like both types of people need a little bit of assistance with being productive and finding a balance, but how on earth do we stay focused enough to do it? Well, there’s a book out this week that might possibly be able to help me. Get-It-Done Guy’s 9 Steps to Work Less and Do More has tips on focusing, getting organised and not wasting time, which are things I definitely need help with. It seems to be written in the sort of snappy style that I have enough time to delve into on my daily commute so, I might give it a go. Will report back on my progress. In the meantime, I think I just need to stop saying yes to every social engagement that comes along and make a little bit more time for… well, sleeping!
