Mind Management, Not Time Management:
Productivity When Creativity Matters
Over the past few years (COVID meltdown) my days have been getting increasingly fractured. There have been days … even weeks where I got more and more depressed because it “seemed” like I could NOT make any headway with my never ending To-Do Lists.
I tried everything … even having only ONE thing on my daily To-Do List. Would it surprise you to find out that it could take me three or four days to actually DO that one thing?
What WAS I doing? My garden? NO My housework? Sadly NO.
I read. In a three month period I read five boxed series. Seventy-two books in a row. Did I enjoy that? Not really. The ever present pressure of my undone To-Do lists was always there in the background. Guilt. Anxiety. Frustration. What the *&@# was WRONG with me? Pretty well the only work I did was my Fiverr Promotions … and that was with the help of my VA.
So when I cam across Mind Management, Not Time Management: Productivity When Creativity Matters on June 25th, 2022 I immediately bought it and immediately started reading it.
Somehow knowing that this book was really really important. I read SLOWLY. Instead of speed reading, I digested every word and thought about how I could apply what the author was talking about. The book became a sea of highlighted yellow, pink and blue.
Looking backwards (a hint for YOU) I should have been taking detailed notes on the information, techniques and the ideas that continually popped into my head. I was actually getting EXCITED for the first time in three+ years.
Because the electronic version of the book is all highlighted, I ordered the paper version so I can start again. As of August 1st I started reading the book again. This time with a stack of sticky notes and a notebook by my side … one section for detailed notes, another section for ideas. Yes I could do this on my laptop BUT I prefer handwriting in a notebook. The fact that research continually shows that handwriting “cements” things into your brain made handwriting my “always” choice for learning new “stuff.”
Mind Management, Not Time Management: Productivity When Creativity Matters has basically changed EVERYTHING. I read, digested the concepts and did some deep thinking from June 25th to June 30th. On July 1st I did my first trial run of one of the suggestions in the book.
It took less than a week for me to realize that my life was in the process of changing … forever! It made sense. Accomplishing the most important daily thing on my To-Do list was easy and surprisingly fast. I used a combination of 3 techniques the author talks about in detail. I started at 9AM and was done by 10AM leaving a open day to accomplish other things.
I got more accomplished in one week than I had accomplished in the previous three months. And I know that with practice and refinement this will keep on getting better.
Talk about a GAME CHANGER …
A LIFE CHANGER!
And that was using only one of the suggestions in the book.
Why did I focus on only one suggestion in July? Because I was gun shy … I was afraid to take on too much and by doing so overwhelm myself and fail at everything. I wanted to do one thing successfully and then add on more.
I am going to add on one new “protocol” in August and with success will add on another in September and so on. I decided this is NOT a sprint. This is my new life where days, weeks and months flow. Where work once again excites me and everything that needs to, gets done.
Am I going to tell you what the techniques and tools are? NO. If I tried to, I’d be re-writing the book!
The bottom line is, IF you are struggling with keeping up with your writing as well as ALL the activities involved in self-publishing [getting reviews, never-ending marketing, maintaining social media, your email list, and your website], IF you are feeling overwhelmed and out of control …
GET THE BOOK and start changing your life now.

PS. One of the tools I am using to make this happen is Cold Turkey.
PPSS Somehow during the month of July my house magically got cleaned, my weed infested garden is now totally weed free. It seems like magic and I’m trying to figure out HOW everything got done because neither of those things were on a To-Do list. AND for the first time in three years I just had some weekend visitors and managed to actually enjoy myself. WOW!
