Do you remember when I declared 2013 my year of productivity? I have felt so good about getting things done. That feeling of accomplishment is empowering. I am doing things I normally do, but I am just more aware of how much I am getting done. My goal is simply productivity. For example, I walked four miles on Saturday and finished reading a book on Sunday. Today I attended a staff development, went to the grocery store, ran three errands in preparation for my son's livestock show that is in two days, had dinner at home, helped my daughter with homework, made lunches, cleaned the kitchen, and gave the cat a bath. These are things I would do anyway, but NOTICING that I am doing them is giving me a great sense of just how productive I can be. Why don't you join me? You don't have to do anything special... just notice your productivity! It is giving me a great sense of usefulness. And isn't it great to feel useful?
