#30 – 10 Benefits of Working Under Pressure

Good Morning!

Lately I’ve been giving myself about two hours to write in the
morning before the daily post needs to be published.

Working under a time
constraint
has some powerful benefits if the amount of time allotted for task
at hand has been estimated correctly.

I shoot for five-hundred words every single morning, formatted, edited, and polished.

These five-hundred words should be meaningful words.… Read More “#30 – 10 Benefits of Working Under Pressure”

#29 Let’s Get Comfy, At Work

Good Morning!

This morning as I sit at my writing desk making a list of the potential topics I want to write for today’s post, I find myself always adjusting my hand, foot, back/butt position trying to get in a comfortable position to write.

I go through this process every morning.

Most days I usually just pain through the process, but today
I leaned back in my office chair, balanced the laptop on the edge of the desk
and started writing. … Read More “#29 Let’s Get Comfy, At Work”

#28 Reprogramming Yourself

Good Morning.

I remembered the dream I had last night. When I remember my
dreams and they’re more like reality than something out of a sci-fi novel (those
are awesome ones btw) , I tend to try to understand the why behind it.

I don’t remember the specifics, but what I do remember is
that it was the same type of situation that instantly gets me angry.… Read More “#28 Reprogramming Yourself”

Have you ever worked on a large personal project or a hobby?

be to wait for the stuff you need to keep working on your project.

#25 The Great Shopping Cart Debacle

Good Morning!

For as long as I can remember, every single time I’ve entered the parking lot of a grocery store I’ve seen at least one stranded shopping cart.

The only time I’ve entered a grocery store parking lot with no carts strewn about is when I see the cart wranglers moving the carts back into the store, the store isn’t open, or a coin deposit system had been implemented. … Read More “#25 The Great Shopping Cart Debacle”

#24 Call Your Mom, It’s Mother’s Day

Good Morning!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I’ll call you later.

She’s one of my biggest fans and I’m so thankful for
that.  I feel like I won the parents
lottery sometimes.

She shared a note with me the other day that she wrote back in
2010 that will no doubt always be effective. 

“Life is a journey – a process of advancement and progression.

#23 The ‘One Neat Trick’ For Organizing Creative Thinking

Good Morning!

I woke up this morning kinda blank, and that’s OK!

It’s OK because I learned the “one neat trick” to help people with writer’s block start writing again. That neat trick is to start writing down all of the things going through your head, what your looking at, hearing, the stuff going on around you, everything.

Write everything down in basic form.… Read More “#23 The ‘One Neat Trick’ For Organizing Creative Thinking”

#22 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Ever Let Your Coffee Get Cold

Good Morning!

I’m not going to let my coffee get cold today.  I’m not, going to let, my coffee, get cold
today!

I’m going to finish the entire thing while it’s still at the right
temperature.

I’m going to finish it because yesterday, the last two
mouthfuls for the lack of a better way to put it, left a poor taste in my
mouth.… Read More “#22 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Ever Let Your Coffee Get Cold”
