Day -58 and counting

I had a great day yesterday. I got a lot of projects on my list completed yes, that' right, completed. I also listened to a recorded teleconference about organizing your time. It's amazing what we find when we align our goals with our own value system and style. Information comes to you like someone is feeding you this information. I was listening to the information saying yes, that's me yes! That's what I needed to know. Yes, I'm going to do that.

One of the things the speaker said that really was great information was that every billionaire that she knows (she says she knows 4 personally) does this every day. They have what is called focused time. Every day they schedule time to work on projects that will accomplish their goals. They take their to do list for the day and prioritize the projects 1, 2, 3 etc and do them in that order. The most important things they allot to special times called focus time. this is time that they refuse to be disturbed. They don't accept conversation, they don't take phone called, nothing but an absolute emergency (Of the the building is on fire variety) will keep them from their focus project. I tried that Tuesday before I knew about doing that and I found that I had gotten a lot done then and then yesterday when I worked on getting things done, I got it all done so quickly that I had plenty of time to listen to that teleconference.

I got information this morning from an editor of the magazine that I send an article to that she couldn't use the article as is, that I needed more current information. She took the time to edit the material before she sent it back to me. This in my opinion though a rejection is a good sign. I'm going to keep trying to work something out but I'm not exactly sure of the direction I need to go with this right now. I'll put this on a backburner to simmer for a while and see what happens. The idea of taking the road of least resistance seems to be working for me right now so I'm going to follow my current path.
