Giving You My Mind, One Piece at a Time

A Wonderful New Habit

Published a couple of years ago in The Daily Grind - 0 Comments

My enumerated list from yesterday:

  • Updated my main blog
  • Posted content to my training site
  • Responded to user requests on my training site
  • Enabled Facebook comments for A Blog is not a Business
  • Worked on eCourse
  • Completed “bootstrap checklist”
  • Created next task list

You will have noted by now that I have something on my daily task list called “bootstrap checklist.” This is a list of websites that I visit daily to complete surveys, read emails, watch videos, etc. I earn cash for doing these things in minuscule amounts, but these activities can be done “brainlessly” and simultaneously with other activities.

Much of the time, I do these things while processing email, paying bills, surfing facebook, etc. while also listening to Pandora. I decided a couple of days ago to start listening to audiobooks instead. I’ve already completed two very short books that I probably never would have listened to otherwise, and it’s been delightful. Inspiring enough to start a book review category on this blog.

Mu Audible affiliate account has been approved, I need to figure out how best to utilize it in conjunction with my reviews. Every affiliate program has its quirks, so I never take anything for granted. I must determine what kinds of images (if any) I can use, etc.

My big news from yesterday was the re-kindling of a professional relationship with a global colleague with whom I had not really had any contact with since I left corporate life almost five years ago. They are providing me with an opportunity to do what I love (editing) and perhaps even more in the future. I love the synchronicity of the Universe.

Our conversation yesterday also reminded me of a book idea I had years ago that would actually make a fantastic eCourse instead. I am delighted by the fact I have fallen in love with teaching at this point in my life. I know that at other times in my life, “training” other employees provided me with no small amount of frustration. As I have matured, however, I have come to appreciate my knack for explaining things.

There is no enumerated list waiting for me today. On Sundays, I tend to clear out the digital clutter that has accumulated during the previous week. I file all the information downloaded to my computer and move it to the cloud, process/store the emails that would take more than five minutes to administer, delete digital files that are no longer relevant, etc.

I’ll also probably do a load of laundry, run the dishwasher and perhaps do some baking today. I haven’t decided yet, and that’s the beauty of my Sundays. It’s a day to relax and unwind, to just “be.”

May you love the life you create for yourself. Namaste & ciao for now.
