Some people find serenity one day per week by reviewing the news they have missed during the course of the week. If you are one of those people, this is the place for you! Here are the things we covered on Janeane’s World this week.
Take the Mystery Out of Why You Don’t Take Action Now
It is magnificent to take the mystery out of why you do not take action now so you can move forward and accomplish your goals. Take action now means to step up now, this very moment and do what needs to be done. When you take action now you move forward towards completing and accomplishing your goals. One thing that keeps people from taking action now is that they do not know why they do not act. For these people the reason they do not move from plan to action is a mystery.
Stop Procrastination – Set a Schedule and Follow It
It is terrific to take the mystery out of procrastination by setting a schedule and following it. Procrastination is that thing that makes you put off doing things you should be doing. There are as many reasons or procrastination as there are procrastinators. One reason for procrastination is that to do lists are too long. Think about your own to do list. If it is like most no matter if it is a list for home or work the list probably is very long.
It is good to create to do lists. To do lists help us to keep track of all the things we have to do so that nothing gets left behind or forgotten. The problem is that most people don’t realize the list is the starting point, not the ending point. Once you create your to do list get out your calendar and schedule each to do item. In my calendar for example, all my to do items are added to the calendar to be done at a specific time.
It Is An Honor to Be Nominated for a Black Weblog Award
The older people among my readers will remember Susan Lucci from the daytime soap opera All My Children. She was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award nineteen times before she won an award. Susan and other people like her often said, “It is an honor just to be nominated.” Those words are true. When you are nominated for an award or considered for special recognition, it is an honor. Even if you do not win, it is an honor, something you should be proud of, something you should be happy to share with the world.
This post was inspired by Dataclysm: Who We Are (When We Think No One’s Looking) by OKCupid co-founder Christian Rudder, where he analyzes online data to find out that people who prefer beer are more likely to have sex on a first date. Join From Left to Write on October 9th as we discuss Dataclysm. As a member, I received a copy of the book for review purposes.
It is wonderful to sit down and examine the numbers behind our thoughts, ideas and opinions. Numbers, numbers, numbers. I really like numbers. I am the kind of person who does Calculus for fun at home when I am bored. (Though with four kids, a husband, a dog and a cat, I don’t get bored often.) Often people are surprised to learn I like numbers because I like reading and writing so much.

Thank you for the vote and for the compliment of wanting to share the idea of a weekly recap. Of course you can borrow it. Heck you can use it!
I love the quotes that you post! Always inspiring!
I love using a to do list! It is so helpful to keep my accountable!
Great way to recap the week and draw attention to the most important parts! Congrats on being nominated.
I voted for you!!! I really hope you win in the business category! I like the idea of a summary of your weekly posts. Can I borrow, pretty please!
I have to write things down so I can remember them easier. I have a tendencies to do this when I am talking to people too. It helps keep me on the conversation!
A plan goes a long way in achieving a goal. Just waiting for things to happen doesn’t generally get things done.
This is such a great post filled with helpful tips! Thanks! I really need to take a look at the procrastination one!
Thanks for the review. I actually plan on creating a to-do list this weekend. My focus is to get out of the habit of procrastinating!
I make lists but I am bad about following them or I lose them. Write it down and most if the time it does not get done.
I thrive and depend on to-do lists.
I have to have a to do list for everything, if not I am usually a mess.
I wish I made to do lists, life would be easier.
I love making to do lists. I even right things down I’ve already done just so I can cross it off. 😉
I like the nice recap you have here. I need to remember to schedule things more for sure! Congrats on the nomination!
I appreciate the idea of finding out why I don’t do some of the things I need to get done – finding out why I avoid completing some of the tasks that would lead to goal completion. I also need to take time to acknowledge the weeks end and the goals that did get completed. Thank you for this!
That Stop Procrastination is a need to read for me.
I am the queen of to-do lists. If it isn’t written down, it doesn’t get done.
