I am a professional procrastinator.  Legit.Today’s BlogHer Prompt asks us …. “Do you have a tendency to procrastinate, or do you like checking things off your to-do list?”I procrastinate my procrastination.  Earlier this evening, I decided I wanted to play Mario Brothers on my Wii instead of blog.  But there were no batteries that were alive in my Wii controllers… so I played a game on Facebook for an hour....more

The Any.Do App Helped Me Get Things Done, Sort Of

I'm back after a month of using the Any.Do app to try and help me get things done. Not every day things but things I never make time to do because I'm addicted to work. So did it help? Yes, it did. Sort of. For awhile. ...more

Can the Any.DO iPhone App Help Me Get Things Done?

I love lists. I make lists every day. I sometimes make multiple lists in a day. I edit my lists, not just to cross things off but also to move things around on them or to re-prioritize them. I cleaned out my Evernote last week and I found a ton of old lists. I found empty note holders that used to contain lists of things that I had actually completed but inadvertently left the empty Evernote item. I created the BlogHer group List Lovers Unite because sometimes I feel like I'm the only one, (I'm not), who loves lists. I share a monthly To Do list in that group and whether I ever finish the things on it or not, I feel good about the community that's built around those monthly lists. But, I really would like to do more of the things so I'm also always on the look out for new apps or list organizing tools that will inspire me to get things done. Enter Any.DO....more Hey, SweetBird, come on over to my side of the room, we'll sit together and ...more

Getting Things Done - The Specifics

Everyone has their own system to get things done that work for them. Here are some things I've found that help me along. 1) Determine the goals of your to-do list. If you are the type of person who will only feel accomplished if you complete every task on the list, you will need fewer items or smaller items than I use per day. My list is not a black-and-white, must-get-this-done-now list. My list is made up of helpful suggestions and guidelines that get me through my day with variety and the illusion of choice. ...more

Getting Things Done - An introduction

Let me paint a picture for you. It's eight o'clock on a Monday night. My husband has just gotten home from work, my kids are bopping around being crazy. Everybody is hungry, it's time for dinner. But I'm in the final round of an online writing competition and I can't tear myself away from the poll. Dice onions, refresh page, cut up peppers, refresh page, start cooking sausages, talk to friends about the poll, oh shit! I'm burning the sausages! Flip them, refresh page. ...more

A Day in the Life List

      Today was not a typical Friday for me.  I realized that if I made a list of things I had to remember to do combined with things that I purchased on this particular day, it would provide some bizarre clues to someone trying to figure out ‘a day in the life of Kim’.-one dozen cookies for Grandparents’ day-call to attendance office explaining senior’s absence on senior skip day (she really wasn’t skipping; she was assisting her dad on a road trip to retrieve her older sister from college)...more

Guest Post - How to be the Most Organized Mommy in Town

There are mommies who manage to get everything on their daily agenda done, and mommies who simply don’t. Before I got pregnant, it was just my husband, me, and our desire to spend our lives goofing around, going out with friends, traveling, watching movies, cooking together... We watched our acquaintances and wondered how they survived with jobs, children and so many obligations that come with that. ...more

Not Enough Hours

(originally posted @ My Really Real Reality) Let's face it - there just aren't enough hours in the day.  I personally could use at least 28 hours; but I also feel pretty sure even that wouldn't be enough.  There is just not enough time for all the things I need to do, and the things I want to do.  Right now is a prime example....more
