Tip - Focus on the Important Things in Life
Community Strategist Jono Bacon has a tip on having the perfect life. We spend most of our time only focusing on the urgent things that has to be done that day ,whereas we should be focusing on the important things.
There's a book called "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey that talks all about this. Every Sunday night, think about the different roles you play in your life: husband/wife, employee, member of local book club, etc. Think about the important things you need to do to move that role forward that week. Then you can break that down into a set of todo list items. Google Calendar allows you to put in todo items for each specific day. Now you can use this list to manage the actual important things, rather than worrying about all of the little things.
