My first cruise was quite the experience, one I would definitely repeat especially when you bring your best friend.
The past few months have been a bit chaotic, mentally. As each day goes by I get more unorganized and more scatterbrained. Today I sat down to tackle some issues I’ve been procrastinating.
- Email inbox.
Besides the usual (deleting those pesky newsletters & junk) I am terrible at keeping my inbox clear. I also lack responding to emails in a timely fashion. Today I manged to reply to Busy, an email six weeks in the making, and deleted items from my social/promotion tabs.
How do you manage your inbox?
- Scheduling posts.
I have used this feature off and on but today I’m looking into a more solid plan to use scheduling for my blog. Usually each day I carve out an hour of my time to write an update. The post feels lacking or rushed and not from the heart. In the future I’d like to improve my content and post thoughtful updates.
Do you use the schedule feature?
I used to be organized and I realize this every time I open up Goodreads. Years ago I discovered GR and the OCD side of me rejoiced. Now I am working on getting my bookshelves more organized and labelled efficiently for easy perusing. This will also help with reading challenges in the future.
Bookshelves, to organize or not to organize?
- Memories. I take leisure photos but rarely manage to upload, edit, or review a batch before taking on a new project. This is a big task I need to get under control and it will take time but I am going to try to spend a small amount of time every day to get this done.
What daily routine helps keep you sane?
That may seem like a lot to some and not many things to others, for me it is just enough for now. Time management used to be a strength of mine so I plan to remedy my current situation.
Do you have any tips for managing life, time, reading, self, etc.?
I am collecting libraries and when I travel I love to check out (haha) the local library. Read more about the Spain Library Park here.
What is the most interesting library or bookstore you’ve been to?
When I think of Springfield, Missouri this pops into my mind. I spent many a days and dollars here. This is one of my favorite coffeehouses I have visited so far. The staff is always friendly, the establishment is calm and clean, and the coffee (PT’s) is tasty every time. A visit to SGF always requires a stop into The Coffee Ethic. If you’re ever in the area, check them out. You won’t regret it.
