As anyone who knows me can attest, I'm a professional-grade procrastinator!

Because of my putting-things-off habit, I'm always on the lookout for anything that will help me get the most done with the least amount of effort. That's why I was excited to see that Ultimate Bundles finally put together a Productivity Bundle!

My Favorites:

The Organize Your Life with Trello eCourse by Cara Harvey & Elisa Giorgio made this bundle worthwhile for me! I love Trello but feel like Cara & Elisa have taken my Trello game to the next level! I have several new boards now and feel like I can really keep on top of things. Definitely one of my favorites!

I've been working my way through The 90-Day Personal Productivity Power Plan by Lise Cartwright and am really liking it so far! This course alone would make the bundle worth buying!

Productivity & Organization for Women by Cheri Chin is a four week course that I'm slowly working my way through. I really like Cheri and am enjoying the course! You have the option of completing it at your own pace, but I like getting the daily emails so signed up for that option.

Synopsis & Review

While I did get a head-start on this bundle, there are still several items that I haven't had a chance to go over yet.

I've included a short synopsis for each product and my mini-review is below the synopsis, in red. 

I'll be updating this post as I continue to work my way through everything.

The Ultimate Productivity Bundle is only $37, a huge savings over buying everything individually!

Look through the courses and see if anything strikes your fancy. They also offer an awesome 30-day Happiness Guarantee, so what have you got to lose?

How to Finish Your To Do List Every Day!
by Marcia Ramsland ($47.00)
  • (Video) This video will show you how to turn the chaos of the day into calm control with smart planning and your TO DO List will get done, your home will be cleaner, your work will get done, and you’ll be happier and relaxed.
  • At approximately 30 minutes long, I'm not sure how they came up with the $47 value of this video. Ramsland shares several tips for creating a successful to-do list and offers a link to some free downloads, but none of this information was new to me.

It's About Time by Aby Garvey ($49.00)
  • (eBook) Create a customized time management system that is in sync with your values and priorities and helps you feel in control with It's About Time.
  • Skimmed through this ebook and it looks like something I could use. Will definitely be going back to this one!

Make More Margin: FREE Productivity eBook from Ultimate Bundles!

As a professional-grade procrastinator, I'm always on the lookout for anything that will help me get the most done with the least amount of effort!

Ultimate Bundles has a productivity bundle coming out towards the end of the month and are offering a free eBook over the next few days as a prelaunch special!

Make More Margin offers 75 productivity tips that should help you free up an hour or two every week! Who couldn't use an extra hour or two?

You'll learn what time-saving tips successful bloggers use to free up time  (I like the Pomodoro Method), and their favorite productivity tools or services (I'm a big fan of Trello).

You'll also hear about hobbies or self-care habits that can be incorporated into your busy schedule (happy to see so many people include reading on their list!), and how they use those small pockets of free time that pop up throughout the day (more reading!).

Found the question of "what would you say to someone who feels guilty taking time for themselves, especially when there's so much to do" interesting. I think that this is one where it's easier to give advice than to actually take it. 

Was interesting seeing what everyone had to share, and I even picked up a couple of new tips to try! 

The free ebook is only available until February 11th, so be sure to download your copy today!

The 100 Day Project 2019

Decided that I'm going to try the 100 Day Project again, only this time with art instead of letter writing. I'm not an artist in any way, shape, or form but I do love to try.

What is it?

The 100 Day Project is a creativity excavation. It’s about unearthing dormant or unrealized creativity by committing to a daily practice everyday for 100 days.

Creativity is a skill. The more we practice, the more skilled we become. Practice takes time. Practice takes commitment. Practice is a radical act in this speeded up world. Through practice, we develop a creative habit. Through habit, we reconnect with and know ourselves again as a creative being. (source)

Taking the plunge: Joining Dare To Conquer

I had a plan.

I had it all figured out.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men....

I've been blogging off and on for over nine years, but I was ready to kick things up a notch. I wanted to move from hobby blogger to the pros.

So I started signing up for free email courses. Joined mailing lists and Facebook groups. I even bought a couple of blogging bundles (the Genius Bloggers Toolkit).

My original plan was to finish working through the Genius Bloggers Toolkit before buying any other courses. I have both the 2017 and the 2018 kits, so there's plenty of material to work through.

As an easily distracted, professional-level procrastinator, I'd say I wasn't even halfway done with the 2017 kit, much less the 2018 one.

Don't judge me.
