How did the challenge go last week? Did you sell something?
We have been trying to get stuff done all week and leave on vacation. I found 5 printer ink cartridges from an old computer that I wanted to sell… but couldn’t figure out where I could list it that would still make it worth while after I paid for shipping. Instead I donated them to Goodwill. We have made 2 donation runs this past week
Lily sold something! She sold a skirt that she didn’t wear anymore to ‘Once Upon a Child’ and they gave her $2.80 for it.
Ready for this weeks challenge?
E-mail has become a huge addiction for me. I justify it because it has been mostly work related with my book promotions lately, but checking it has become a nervous twitch. This is something I have tried to cut down before but then another busy time hits and I get caught back up in constantly checking.
Lately I have made sure I close my e-mail after I am done reading when I am going to keep working on the computer. It is just too hard not to jump back and forth and it wastes so much time.
So the challenge this week is to check e-mail only once a day.
This might be totally impossible for you. Or you might be thinking… this is crazy… I only check every few days anyways. You can modify the challenge based on your work or current habits. The goal – check e-mail only as often as necessary… really, people don’t need me to respond in 10 minutes to their e-mails, a day is easily soon enough.
