Email Clean Up – Step 1

So I figured out how I’m going to organize my emails. And it’s simpler than you may think. Or not. I might have yelled at the computer multiple times. But then again, I’m not the most computer savvy of people out there. I love using Outlook at work. I mean, love. Sorry, I’m a Microsoft…

Challenge Time – Email Clean-Up

We all do it. We save emails that clog up our inbox. We forget to delete stuff. But, if you’re like me and use your email to keep track of orders or bills that need to be paid, or projects that still need to be done, this email can easily become an uncontrollable beast. And…

Tools of the Trade – Frixion pens

One of the tools I use for my planner are Frixion Pens. They are erasable pens that just work! Seriously, I love them. I wanted something that I could erase if plans change, but pencil smudges. Regular gel pens don’t erase and I didn’t want to carry around white out tape. https://www.amazon.com/Pilot-Retractable-Erasable-Assorted-Disappear/dp/B009QYH644/ref=ice_ac_b_dpb?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1537149012&sr=1-4&keywords=frixion+pens Now, I wouldn’t…

What Is Your Best Life?

Yesterday I talked about living your best life. Your best life. Not what someone else thinks your life should be. Too many times, we as teenagers and young adults see commercials about what we need in our life. After all, that’s what commercials are for. To sell you stuff you may or may not need.…

Live Your Best Life

I listen to a morning radio station who’s mantra is “Live Your Best Life.” What exactly does that mean? Does it mean always taking risks? Doing crazy things? Or knowing that your life is organized and you know what’s coming down the road for you? You all know how I live my life. I like…

The Power of No

No. Such a simple, two letter word. But it can have so much power. The word no has a lot of negative connotations to it. No, I won’t help you. No, you can’t touch that. No, I don’t have the money. No! Get off the counter. (Sorry, yelling at the cats). But the word can…
