Frogs, Frogs and Procratination!

I was thinking of how many wonderful people I have the opportunity to be connected with. So in the next few tips, I am going to mention some of them and the resources that they have that I believe you will find valuable.

This week, meet my friend, Susie (The Frog) Hale: Sus ie is one of those people whose infectious attitude heightens the vibe everyplace she shows up. She is one of the best connectors I know and she knows everyone. You can benefit from her networking by reading the interviews and articles in her FrogPond newsletter: You can read last month's issue here or subscribe here!

Do You Procrastinate?

Speaking of FROGS.......How many do you eat each day?????

Is there an area where you aren't being responsible (you know IGNORING)?
here is a very cool video on Procrastination.

I believe in the concepts of the Pareto Principle that says 20% of your actions will yield 80% of your results. Often, those are the things we put off.....so remember, you must adamantly refuse to work on tasks in the bottom 80 percent while you still have tasks in the top 20 percent left to be done. Make sure that every day, you start the day by identifying w hat 3 actions would give you the biggest payoff in the long term and keep this question in front of you as you move from one activity to the next:"Is this task in the top 20 percent of my activities or in the bottom 80 percent?". Live in 20% more and create more time for yourself! And then go have some fun!

The movie is part of the wonderful little motivational clips available at www.simpletruths.com Great to motivate yourself or to share with your team/office or chapter.

Thanks, Joeann! For over a year, I've been receiving (and filing away [an e-PRO thang]) emails from SimpleTruths. While I had every good intention to look into the program further, I have NEVER actually read any of them, and have never gone to the site. Suppose I will stop procrastinating and start paying more attention to the advice offered!

BTW: Happy Admin Day to all Exec Assistants, Personal Assitants, Virtual Assistants and Secretaries out there. I'm rembering when it was just called "Secretaries Day"! :)
