Affiliate links included in this post. We’re on the heels of winter and my desire to stay in, curled up in front of the fireplace working on my fiber crafts is kicking in. I’ve spent the past few days satisfying this crafting craving by diving into the Handmade with Love Super Bundle. (affiliate link) This is…
Somedays it’s just too hard to get off the couch, especially when there is that one item on the to do list that has to be done.
You know the one.
It’s that to do list item that stares at you, and the longer you put it off the more daunting it seems to be.
This is also the same to do list item that, once complete, will feel like a huge weight off your shoulders and you’ll be motivated to do even more.
This is your frog, and it’s what Eat That Frog! by Brian Tracy is about.
In the introduction Tracy mentions a quote by Mark Twain that basically says if the first thing you do in the morning is eat a live frog then there is nothing worse you could do for the rest of the day.
In other words, if you complete that daunting task on your to do list right away, it will help you become more productive and more motivated to complete your to do list.
If you’re a blogger, there’s a good chance someone has recommended ProBlogger to you. I know I had many people recommend it to me and I’m glad they did. It’s a great book that I continually come back to everytime I want some fresh ideas or inspiration on what to do next to boost my blog.
I was recently asked to check out Me, Myself, & I ~ 28 Days of Creative Self-Love by Cheryl Bridges for a project about reminding ourselves to love ourselves. I’m always up for something that can better myself especially with my focus on the positive lifestyle. I wasn’t disappointed with this book.
Cheryl takes you on a month long journey through self exploration and really dissects different attributes of self-love providing a detailed understanding of what it takes to love ourselves and how to challenge the obstacles that are standing in our way of self-love.
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. It was no sooner than I was telling my husband that I can never find the time to sit down with a good book, then Omaha Steaks contacted me and asked if I would review Jim…
The Extraordinary Art of Couponing covers everything you need to know in order to save money on your groceries and more. There were a lot of myths I had that Nicole addressed and I learned a lot of things I didn’t even know. At this point, this woman who KNEW couponing was not right for her (that’s me) now knows that it’s not as hard or time consuming as she once thought it was.
I find it weird that I’m excited to get out there and start couponing again, but now I’m thinking of a vacation I could save up for, the help on getting my house or student loans paid off, or even an extra class for the kids!
