Wow, that one is going to be hard!

And, yet, I totally see your point. How many times has the garlic bread burned, the pot boiled over, or the laundry been forgotten, because I am trying to do too many things at once!

Thanks for the *great* reminder!

I'm with Beth...this is going to be tough. But I can see where it would work. When I focus on getting one thing completely done, I feel so much better than when I have several unfinished projects going at once.

We'll see how it goes!


I came across your site via The Queen Bee and you were an instant favourite. I love your ABC's of Living Simply! I hope you don't mind if I add you to my blogroll.


I agree Melissa and Beth. I need to work on this one too. Tonight I found half my lunch sitting in the dining room. I knew I was hungry for some reason! :) I really need to focus on one thing - anything - and finish it!


I've been reminding myself of this several times a day since reading it. I loved your book and want to reread it soon, but these little snippets are a great way to remind me until then. How's the new book coming?
PS- I got my phone back. THANK YOU! Sorry for being a pain.
