To Do !

I’m a list person. I love the feeling of crossing things off. It makes me feel productive. You don’t wait to do the work until you get the dream job - you do the work in order to get the dream job.
It’s the list of ten things I try to do every workday. Yes, there are days when I don’t get them all done, but I do my best to deliver. It has proven very effective for me. They are:
  1. Read something related to your industry.
  2. Read something related to business development.
  3. Send two emails to touch base with old colleagues.
  4. Empty private + client inbox by responding to within one business day.
  5. Check in with each team member on their progress.
  6. Have a short non-work related conversation with every co workers.
  7. Review  top three goals for your job and life that are focused on its growth.
  8. Identify and execute one task to support each of my top three goals.
  9. Post five valuable pieces of content on all my major social media accounts.
  10. Take a full minute to appreciate what I have and how far I’ve come.
This list could be longer. BUT...
If it was longer, I wouldn’t be as good at getting them all done. This list is manageable to me. Of course, I do more than these ten things every day. But, these are the ten I choose to do with consistency. Why? Over the years, they’ve proven the best way for me to grow my career. The collective results have made completing these tasks consistently; even when I don’t feel like it, well worth it.

It’s a great habit to model for your children , try doing it tomorrow

Quick Weight Loss FOOD

It is quiet natural, when you think of reducing weight, your craving for food increases, but if you modulate the food intake, it works out well.
I was able to reduce my weight from 68kg to 56 kg and from Size 16 to Size 10, not in one day, but in 3 to 4 months with walking and home cooking habits:)
See the below image to choose what is best to eat.
