Time management, productivity and Lance Brown’s perspective

I just got off the phone with Lance, my web guy extraordinaire. We discussed, among other topics, my feeling stressed about not having published a blog in over two weeks.  Excuses are not difficult: travel to Florida twice in two months, preparing three new PowerPoint presentations for upcoming workshops, working 2 half-days per week in my husband’s office, adjusting to the early dark evenings, exercise, cooking, blah blah blah… As a super-organized person, I have been attempting to develop a “schedule” for writing: Monday, blog; Tuesday, submit an article to an online magazine; Wednesday, connect with other relevant bloggers; and on and on. It turns out that creativity does not respond well to being scheduled–at least for me. In my waiting for a pattern to establish itself, I have become stressed about being behind and now so much time has passed!

I’d like to thank Lance for motivating me through explanation, reasoning, and kind support. He knows his stuff.

If you’ve been waiting for a blog post or my next newsletter, I thank you. And you won’t be waiting much longer…

The best thing I did when I discovered I had Type 2 Diabetes was to call Robin Mallery. She coached me to craft a plan to turn this condition around, and the encouragement to believe that I can.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I am managing well, using Robin’s program of small steps, achievable goals, and positive reinforcement.  She’s not only a fountain of knowledge and experience, but a loving teacher and motivator.  For the first time in years, I don’t feel helpless about eating and weight gain.  Thank you, Robin!
