It’s day two of our Holiday Shine Challenge and I am feeling pretty good right now.
Start with a 5-minute dash through the messiest room in your home and throw away the trash and put away stray items. NO excuses. You home cannot shine in a field of clutter!Your home cannot shine in a field of clutter. Get Ready for the Holidays! Click To Tweet
I have my projects listed…. well all the projects I could remember from my brainstorming session and am now ready to begin my action list. This is a total GTD inspired move on my part, and it works because I have been a GTD mom for more than six years. GTD is from the productivity book Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity
by David Allen. I highly recommend this book and the audio series for your car. It will keep you sane during the busiest and most trying times in your life and is the best book on productivity I have ever read. The paperback and Kindle version are under 10 bucks! Woot! What a bargain!
Getting Things Done: The Art Of Stress-Free Productivity
Now let’s get to the Actions:
Actions are very simple, for each project you write the next few actions that need to take place to complete that project.
Fall Festival Pumpkin Bowling Booth
- Hang Sign with instructions for volunteers to run the booth.
- Test out rolling pumpkin on bumpy grass.
- Decorate the pins.
- Make Sign for Booth
- Buy pre-moistened wipes and sanitizing gel. ( out bowling ball is an actual pumpkin)
I give each of my projects a page of paper, smaller projects are grouped on one page and some projects, for example, Christmas Dinner, require and entire notebook all on their own simple because there is so much support material and actions to complete to have a successful meal.
Holiday Shine Challenge for the Day: Start adding steps to your Project Lists. Start with what needs to accomplished this month or even today and as the week progresses work on your action list for Holiday Projects all through November, December and January
Happy Holiday Shining!
