Fifteen Focused Minutes

Fifteen Focused Minutes

I’m a little hard-headed. I’ll admit that. Sometimes I hear wisdom and it takes a while for it to penetrate my thick skull and seep down into my heart, the part of me that will actually at least┬átry┬áto put wisdom into practice. I don’t know when I first heard the concept of working on a […]

The Productive Woman podcast

The Productive Woman podcast

Many people I know listen to podcasts. Including my husband. But I’ve been slow to jump on board. Maybe it’s because listening alone is not my best learning mode. (I’ve had a hard time with audio books.) Maybe it’s because I haven’t found a person/topic that compels me to listen. Whatever the reason, everything changed […]

When All Projects Converge

When All Projects Converge

I try to be very careful about the projects I take on, whether in life or writing. But sometimes even the things I know I am to do all converge with deadlines at the same time. Such is this month, but particularly this week! Not sure what the Lord is doing with all this, but […]

When Life Saps Creativity

When Life Saps Creativity

It’s been a rough few months at our house. And honestly, I feel bad even saying that. We haven’t faced any truly life and death issues, and yet in so many areas my world has been upended. I still feel as if I am tumbling about, waiting to come to rest and see where, exactly […]

My Favorite Apps

My Favorite Apps

I’m all about streamlining my life and making things easier. In a continuing effort to do just that, I thought I’d share with you a few of the apps I use every single day, whether on my computer, phone or tablet. 1. YouVersion: I love being able to access and log my Bible reading plan, […]

Productivity

Productivity

I ended 2013 the way I have ended the past few years: obsessing over productivity. I found myself frantic to squeeze out a few more hours of “work” time from my schedule, though I didn’t really know where they would come from. I read every blog post and article I’d clipped about scheduling and productivity, […]

A Frenzy and A Funk

A Frenzy and A Funk

Hello my dear blog friends! I want to apologize for my absence lately. To be honest, I’ve spent the past month in a frenzy and a funk. Yes, those two things might seem incongruous, but both are completely accurate descriptions lately! The good news is that as of this week, I feel like I’m back […]

Nozbe and GTD

Nozbe and GTD

Last year I was on the hunt for a new “to do” app. What I had was simple and free but wasn’t really working for me. I had an unwieldy to do list. I couldn’t seem to get both work and life tasks done. I knew I needed a more powerful organizational system, but didn’t […]

Blog Reading and To Do List Switches

Blog Reading and To Do List Switches

I am generally a creature of habit, especially when I find a product that works for me. In fact, once I find a product that fits my lifestyle or thought processes, my biggest frustration is having to replace it and not being able to do so with the exact same thing! So when I opened […]

Stay Focused

Until my computer died in early December, I’d been using a nifty little browser add on to help limit my roaming the internet when I was supposed to be working. When I got the new computer set up, it was the holidays, things were a little looser. So as I slowly built back up all […]
