So, yes, I listen to Oprah on XM

I like to listen to Oprah’s radio station on XM from time to time because you actually learn a lot on that channel. I love Jean Chatzky, the money lady and Oprah’s friend Gail makes me laugh. Yesterday, while cleaning the house, I was little to the Aussie guy who talks about organizing your life. I don’t know his name and am too lazy to look it up. ANYWAY, I got the biggest tip for managing my out of control life.

Take just one thing and tackle it. Take the one thing that you keep saying to yourself, “I need to do this” and just do it. Decide for a moment that you aren’t going to do anything but that. For me, today, that was commenting on the 23 Things participants blogs. Doesn’t sound like a huge deal and there weren’t that many of them but I keep putting it off and putting it off and I’m so happy that I heard that show yesterday and just sat down and did it. Now that I’ve done it once, I will do it more. I have it in my calendar to do now, in fact. So, that was the biggest tip I got yesterday and I wanted to share. If I figure out what my one “must do” for each day is, I think I’ll get much more done than my usual putzing around on Plurk and Facebook and then feeling like I got nothing done.
