Its Friday!!!

It is Friday!!!! WOO HOO!
It is also 4am. BOO.

Usually when the seasons change, my sleep schedule is disrupted and I am all over the place. But lately, I am not sure what my deal is. However... I am QUITE happy that it is not Saturday when I am up at 4am since I have an early meeting today anyway.

I have been having so much fun and inspiration reading The Good Vibe Coach's Blog. I was suprised to read that she is based right here in Salt Lake City! If you need some food for thought, check her out!

Things I am thankful for today:
Even though I am up early, I woke up on my own with no alarm.
I work with amazing people that I respect more than I can ever say.
We are one day closer to spring.
Rental Cars
Remembering my cell phone when I leave for work. (Ok.. I am GOING to be thankful for that today because I forgot it yesterday and I felt like I was forgetting something all day!)

Happy Friday, All!

Paper planner: So far, So good :) :)
I have not missed a meeting yet and have gotten much more accomplished. Yay! I'll keep you posted. I am still on week one!

My list of "wants" this week is THIS
It looks like such an inspiring and amazing event. I wish I would have known about it just a few days sooner, however. I am going to watch for it for next year!

And in other news: My bum and the ice decided to be come fast friends, with a bang!
Me+ hot coffee+ laptop bag+ purse+ ice covered in a slight layer of snow= Me praying for summer, begging more like!

Things that made me smile today:
1. Getting to converse with someone I hadn't known well over lunch
2. Seeing a young woman take steps to improve her life and empower herself, despite popular opinion.
3. Biggest Loser! The show never stops inspiring me.
4. Getting many things accomplished and off my desk (yesterday too!)
5. Realizing I am down a couple of pounds. LOVE my bodybugg!
6. Hot tea and stevia! MMMM.....
7. Sending a send card without actually having to put it in the mailbox myself. I am SO bad about that. It just hangs out in my bag on or my desk for days. Sendoutcards is a godsend!
Bob totally hooked me up! You can send a free card on him and tell him I say hi! :)
8. Yummy smelling candles... mmmmmm...
9. People that have said "please" and "thank you"

What made you smiles today?

Stepping Back in Time

Today, after my BNI meeting, I asked for some help from our business coach about time management. It is an area I seem to struggle with lately. I want to know how to be most effective. He suggested I use a paper planner.
At first, I thought this may not be a good idea for me. But upon thinking about it further, I think he might be on to something. I can carry it EVERYWHERE, I can personalize it, I can same some money on my cell plan that already frustrates me, and I tend to be a list maker. Most of my lists are done on paper because I love the satisfaction of crossing off items.

What are you best time management tips?

Happy Friday!

I can't believe it is 2010 already! It seems like just yesterday we were just getting over they Y2K hype! The last 10 years has gone so fast for me.
I didn't set any "resolutions" this year. I am ok with that.
I signed up for the 2010 Susan G. Komen 3 Day Breast Cancer walk.
I am just living life, and playing, sleeping, working, and .... enjoying!

It is nice to feel like I get a moment to breathe!
