I used to have it bad. In university I pulled all nighters for my papers, and crammed for exams. I even tried cramming for my Chinese 101 exam – trying to memorise two hundred plus Chinese characters in one night is not something I would recommend to anyone. Let me just say, it didn’t end well.
This last minute frenzy approach to work followed me into professional life and meant that I was stressed out, fighting the clock, and left wondering if my good work product could have been great if I had a little more time to give it. . . .click here to read more.

Old school, when it comes to-do lists that’s me. I’ve tried many of the productivity tools out there but the hurdle for me is I just don’t like typing up and entering my to do’s. I know many people who really like these apps and that is great, but just not for me. Right now I am trying out a new system called Bullet Journal. You can read about it here. Coach Jill Farmer wrote about it in her summer newsletter and when I checked it out on-line it seemed like a great upgrade of my handwritten weekly list.
Bullet journal is a system developed by Ryder Carroll, an Art Director from Brooklyn New York, for turning a blank journal such as a Mole Skin into a versatile organizational and capture device. I am trying out this system and so far have my little journal contains action list for the month, daily to-dos, a list of blog topic ideas, another list of people to contact, and a handy index and page numbering system. Best part? It only took ten minutes to set up and now I can take it with me everywhere so I can capture things that come up during the day.
So far so good! I will let you know if I stick with the system. If you are a pen a paper organizer then check out the Bullet Journal site. You just might like to give it a try.
