Finding Impact

I always have had a hard time with to do lists. Easy to fill. But hard to see what really needs to get done. What is busy work versus what would help me move forward in my life? It’s fun filling them out, for it feels like everything is now in front of you and is crystal clear. Frustrated by my lack of judgment with respect to what is really important, I started to write down one to do list...

Setting Up For Something New

So many times we have an idea of what we want to get done. Sometimes we even can identify the tools we need. But how will we change our routine to use the new tools to get things done?
