Day 4: Say Goodbye to Survival Mode Challenge

What is on your list?

I’m blogging my way through Crystal Paine’s Say Goodbye to Survival Mode 7-Day Challenge.  Join me, and you’ll get a daily email from her with information about how to start getting your life back, including a new challenge each day to help you along!  Sign up here!

Today’s challenge is all about finding spare moments, identifying priorities, and using that “found” time productively toward your goals.

I know, I know.  We’re all busy.  Amidst all the things we have to do, it feels impossible to work toward the things we want to do.  Crystal encourages being intentional with our time and “finding” moments that were previously wasted, used poorly, or not used at all – and then using that time to work toward our goals.

The challenge was to write down a list of things I wanted to get done in the order I wanted to complete them.  I would then use 15-minute blocks of my “found” moments to begin tackling the things on my list.

I loved the principle of this challenge.  I’m a firm believer in using every moment to the best of my ability and finding ways to be productive.  My problem, however, was that my list consisted of tasks that took more than 15 minutes.

  • Write blog post
  • Finish 2012 photo book
  • Organize kids’ clothes

Oh well, this post is getting written, so something worked.  And as for the other tasks – well, a step in the right direction is better than no step at all!

What’s on your list?
