One Lovely Blog Award

lovely-blog-award

Hi guys,

Today I have been honored with nomination for One Lovely Blog Award, for which I would like to thank to Ben Aqiba. It is very special moment for me, as I can’t remember any time, when I have been nominated for anything (well, if we can count being chosen as a person who need to some extra things in work… Yes, I have been 😉 ). Another thing is, that since yesterday I am trying to win fight with my flu and I seem be the one who is loosing so far. And this simple think made my day! For sure 🙂

Here are rules:

  1. Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them and link their blog in their post.
  2. They must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image.
  3. Must add 7 facts about themselves.
  4. Nominate 15 people to do the award.

So here are seven facts about me:

  1. I am born procrastinator. I always have a lot of tasks and most of them I am finishing in last moment.
  2. I don’t like going to bed, but waking up is a real pain in my neck. When I am in bed already, I could stay there for ever.
  3. I would like to be a software developer in the future, but I am not sure if I want to work as one.
  4. I wish I will have at least five children, but even if not, I don’t want my child to be an only child.
  5. If my do do list would be empty, I would just read all day long. At the moment this is activity, which is one of steps to Improve my English goal.
  6. I don’t think that my university is going to teach me as much as I would learn on my own during this time, but I believe, that it will help me to build my so-called soft skills.
  7. I am introvert, who love social life. The only thing is, that after every meeting with more than two people or with someone who I don’t know well, I need my time alone. Some kind of me-book or me-my laptop date. Maybe that’s why programming seems so attractive to me.

My nominee are:

Raul Conde

Shivani Vohra

My Voice

Simple Ula

It’s still far from fifteen, but those are people nominated by me.

I wish you guys very productive day and I’ll se you in my next post.

Consistency is a key

Hi guys,

Today I wanted to share with you something, what is so obvious and so many people (including me as first) is ignoring. I wanted to talk about power of consistency.

Yesterday, while getting ready for sleep (actually I was already in my bed), I watched episode on youtube (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OAywuL0tSLA here is link, but it might be useless for most of you, as it is in polish). Any way, episode shows method (or theory?) known as a slight edge. In short: when you start doing any activity, like learning new skill, on the beginning you need to put a lot of effort, spend a lot of time, but you can hardly see any progress. But if you’ll survive this time, you will get to the point, when with same effort your progress will much bigger. It works same for good habits, like for those bad.

So I’ve been thinking a lot about it. And this does make sense. I remember, when I was starting my primary school, I couldn’t understand even simple thing about math. When my parents got my notes, they were scared. I failed everything what was possible. Every test, homework or class work on my math classes. And my dad made some rule, that every day, no matter wether it was holiday or normal school day, I had to spend one hour solving math problems. I was trying to explain, that this is pointless, math is not going to stay in my head and I am going to repeat a year because of this. They haven’t listen. And even when I’ve lifted my notes, they haven’t let me stop. I was spending one hour every single day, till I was 16 (so for around 8 years!). And I am not sure, if you can believe, by the time I was 10, I was participating in national math championship. By the time I was 12 I was in top twenty math students in my age group in whole Poland. Person, who was on straight way to fail year because of math. And, what most important, I’ve fallen in love with math.

Talent? I haven’t got. But even till now, math isn’t too difficult for me. Just because my basics are quite strong.

And I am not saying this, to let you know that I am so good in math (to be honest after this many years I think I wouldn’t be any better than most of the people on this planet, as I haven’t use math for a long time, excluding basic calculations in shop or other required in ever day’s life), but to show you, what can you achieve, even if you think you can’t, just by putting enough effort to practice skill you will learn.

Today I’m going to finish at this point, as it is getting late already. I just thought, it might be useful for you, guys.

For now I wish you very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

Productivity comes out of nowhere

Hi guys,

Today I’ve decided to share my thoughts about productivity with you. As you might know, I’ve started this blog to find some motivation. It worked for some time, but after it just stopped. To become more able to actually do stuff (not only think of doing them), I’ve started to have note of every time I sat and kept working. It gave me great look into conditions I need to meet to be productive. But I’ve wrote about all situations, when I wasn’t in anything close to being productive as well (ok, let’s be honest: when I wasn’t able to get out of my bed even).

Today, after two weeks of writting my notes, I’ve decided to analyse all data I’ve gathered up to now and see what clues it is going to bring me. And results scared me, literally SCARED.

So most of my reasons, why I haven’t work, when I was supposed to, were of I’ll just check this video on youtube and I’ll start doing those stuff or Let me just play one level of this game, it’s only five minutes kind. As you can imagine, it’ve never ended after one video or one level.

So I’ve decided, that my distraction number one is my phone actually. I got into realisation, that I might be addicted. And of course, I am going to fight with this (which might be hard, as a lot of my activities require phone, including this blog and my uni. Yes, I am this weirdo doing my assesments on my phone).

But I needed someting oposite, something what would make me feel better. I’ve looked up my productive notes’ side. I had something what I need to reduce in my life in order to achieve this dreamed productivity, so I wanted to find something, what I can work on. And this is the best part: when I’ve set to work it was mostly, because my phone wasn’t avaiable at that time (means my battery was low -I have very short wire, so it is very uncomfortable to use my phone while charging).

So here is my main goal for me at the moment: to reduce use of my phone. And by ‘use’ I really mean unneccessary use. Like watching youtube videos, or playing games. Keep your finger crossed for me.

Ok, but why I am telling you about it? If you are like me, leaving everything to last moment, try this way to find out what your distractions are. As my example, I’ve always knew, that I was using my phone a lot, but when I saw how much time I am wasting this way, I’ve realised, why I don’t have enough time for everything what I should have. And even if you know your main distraction, you might find some other, which are adding on as well and make huge ammount of time being wasted. Who knows?

I will share with you, guys, what I am going to discover after next two weeks, when hopefully I will be free from my phone.

For now I wish you a productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

Can you buy friends?

Hi guys,

Today I have been thinking about friends. When I was a child I had a lot of friends. We used to spend huge amount of time together. I felt I could always count on them.

Now I am living far from the place, where I was growing up. Since I moved out to other country, there is no messages (before whenever we couldn’t see each other, we were texting each other all the time), no phone calls, no any other way of communication. Like we’ve never knew each other.

But let’s say, this is the way it is. We are living in different worlds at the moment, we have our families, new friends and not that much in common, as we used to have.

But this realisation made me remember my grandma’s words: You can’t buy friends (this was her response, when as a child I asked for some toy, because my “friends” didn’t want to play with me, when I haven’t got one). I haven’t understood what she meant by that. I didn’t want to get it for my friends, but for myself, did I? When I asked my dad for this toy, his answear was slightly different: If your friends don’t want to play with you, when you don’t have certain toy, than they aren’t your friends.

But my dad have never finished his lesson by saying. He made a deal. As in my family we had to earn money for any thing we wanted (but not needed – obviously food and clothes we were getting for free 😉 ), he said, that if I really want it, he can increase amount of my duties in order to let me buy this toy. I was very happy that time. Two weeks after I’ve started, I bought my dreamed toy.

Me and my friends were playing with these toys for about one week and we’ve got bored. I felt very disappointed. Something I’ve been working so hard for, was left behind after such short time. But I had friends, hadn’t I?

When I was around 12, maybe 13, we haven’t play toys so much any more. But what became the most important for us were clothes. When something was in, every kid wanted to get it. I remember one day I went to school and all my friends were wearing sweaters with pockets. I had plain one. The biggest nightmare for me was, that any of my sweaters had pockets.

After coming home, I’ve started to begg my parents for one. This time they haven’t agree as I had a lot of sweaters in my cupboard. I remember I went to my room (I used to share my room with my grandma) and I started crying. My grandma asked me what happened, so I’ve told her all story (and I’ve added some complaints about my bad parents, like teenagers usually do). I knew she couldn’t buy me any, as at that moment, she was paying too much for her medicines and simply couldn’t afford for that. But when I came from school next day, she was knitting my sweater. I was so touched, as she had problem with her eyes already and any way she was doing it for me.

When it was finished, I’ve realised that this was the most beautiful sweater I’ve ever had. I wore it to school at the very next day. My friends had a lot of fun of me.

Friends: Who made it for you? Your grandma?

Me: Actually… yes.

F: Are you kidding?! And you are not ashamed to talk about this, like it was the most expensive sweater in shop?

After this question I’ve realised, that actually, that sweater was priceless for me. And I loved it so much. And that i can’t be happy in my life, if I am going to care, about other’s opinion so much. So I’ve stopped.

After another couple of years, there was time to move from primary school to gymnasium. I choose my school togheter with one of my friend and we made sure, we are going to be in the same class.

For first month we were the best friends. But as time went by, my friend choose other girls, more popular. They’ve accepted her, as she’s got a brand new phone from her uncle. So she have forgotten about me. Actually I wasn’t very upset about it. I’ve understood before, that if she would be my real friend, she wouldn’t stop talking to me, because someone told her.

Any way, after that I became friend with much less popular group of girls. And I think, this was the best thing I could do that time. Even though we are not friends any more, they always talk to me, when we meet, I am stil getting birthday wishes from them.

Nowadays, we can see buying friends almost everywhere around. Sometimes we are buying something, just to show our value to the whole world, or literally we are being bought. And of course I am not saying, that if you have money, expensive cloths, car, etc. you must be buying friends. Or if you meet with your friend, who can afford more and he is paying for your bill, that you are being bought. I am talking about friendships, where everything is about money and other belongings. This is said.

One of my colleagues had a lot of friends, who he was taking for trips, holidays and stuff like that. He was thinking, he could count on every single person around him, in case if he needs help. As it turned out, when his father’s company bankrupted, all his friends were gone. There was no one who would help him, there were not too many people speaking to him either. That was kind a sad.

So my conclusion is: you can’t really buy a friend (as long your currency are your belongings instead of personality). Whoever require you to have certain thing or amount of money on your account, will never be your friend. The only what he will be, as those requirements will be achieved, you might get a fake friend, who you won’t be able to trust at all or just someone who will be setting more and more requirements for you. Is it worthed?

Out of my own experience I can say it isn’t. I was lucky, as I’ve met such kind of people when I was a child. I wasn’t very asertive that time, but at least mistakes I have made that time did let me learn without losing too much (maybe except my “friends”, but I found real one at least).

So my advise is, to keep in your mind, that if someone is requiring too much from you, isn’t really your friends. And I am not talking about compromises. Just pure, never ending requirements. For me friend is a person, who accepts who you are. Sometimes it is the only person in front of whou you can be yourself without worrying about anything. Who is there for you, no matter what is going to happen. Even if he can’t phisically help you, he just is.

I wish you all have such a friend already have friend or two like this. And if you don’t have, I hope you are going to find soon.

And for now I wish you very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

Being imperfect in perfect world

Hi guys,

Today’s post appeared after some break again. But things just went a bit crazy in the last few days. You might not know, but I have started my dreamed university in January. Unfortunately, there were some issues with my student finance application (as because of my ID issue I have sent it later than I was supposed to and haven’t been aproved on time). I couldn’t afford to pay £9000 just like that, so they have let me move into September’s term instead of removing me from uni permanently.

I was quite glad about this. But in the end of last week there was enrolment time in my uni (as September term starts in October actually). And there were many problems with my returning. Luckily, I’ve finally started and on Wednesday was my first day. I am still not enrolled officially, but now only their work left, nothing on my side.

Any way, let me tell you something about my uni. So I study computing technologies, what goes perfectly with my plans. I have classes only twice a week (my studies are full time, they have only filled two days with all classes, so if we have work, or children to look after, we still can attend). At the moment I am in foundation year (as I have no certificate proving, I can speak English or I had an opportunity to learn anything about computers basically), what is going to give me four years of study in total. I am very happy about this year, especially because of English, as it will hopefully help me to improve it. And that’s great thing.

Ok, but let’s move into our today’s topic. How it is to be imperfect in perrfect world? And what does “being a perfect person” actually mean?

So answear is quite simple: being imperfect person is to be just like me. Keep forgetting stuff, getting late, falling into panic, even if problem is nor really serious…

I think, that it is being like you as well. Every one has something, what he/she wants to change.

And all of us are living if this perfect world, where it does not matter, whether you are a good person or quite opposite. The only thing what matters is how do you look like, how much money you have and what you’ve bought for it.

We can see in each magazine a beautifull models, in swimming suits more expensive than half of my monthly rent (maybe a bit exagerated, but actually who knows), with perfect shape, with nice skin without any imperfection… And you start thinking Hey, why don’t I look like she? But apparently you realise, that you have more in your hips, less in your breast… Just nightmare!

But let me tell you something: our world is perfect, because of us, imperfect people. There isn’t any one perfect. Really. Or better different: every one is perfect in his or her own way. And if you would feel bad about how do you look like, or what do you have, world would propably be a bit less perfect. Just think about it: we are the one’s who make this world. That’s why it’s our responsibility of some kind, to make our world better. Only what we need to do is to try to be the best version of ourselves. But during all this proccess, we need to remember who we are and what is even more importan: we have to accept fact, that we are who we are. We can keep becoming better and better version of ourselves, but at the end of the day, we can’t forget who we are.

And with this thought I am going to leave you now. I wish you very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

Is it worthed to get tired?

Hi guys,

It’s been nine days since my last post, but I’ve decided to keep it like this. At least for now. There is so many things going on in my life at the moment and everyday’s posts turned out to be quite big commitment.

Ok, so let me explain what’s going on. First of all, me and my husband are moving soon. We have contract till end of January, but we’ve decided, that we’ll start look for new home (unfortunately still rented) now, so we won’t be forced to take anything what will be avaiable (like it happened last time). But first I should tell you something about me and my husband.

We’ve got married in November 2016, so almost one year ago. Before that, we were a couple for one year plus we knew each other for about three months before (or maybe a bit longer, but less than half year). Our wedding was quite unexpected. While being a couple we were saving money for this occasion, but unfortunately our families are living in two different parts of world (my one in Poland, my husband’s one in India), so we needed to provide accomodation for everyone, food for all the time they stay and so on. Plus of course regular wedding cost.

So one day, in November we’ve decided to get married right now (not exactly at that moment, but our decision’s and wedding day were three days apart). It was crazy. On our wedding party they were only five guests plus us. And I think it was the best decision we could possibly made. It saved us a lot of stress and of course a lot of money. But that time both of us had contracts for rooms in different parts of London. So for first three months of our marriage, we were living separately (at least officially, because we were just choosing in who’s room are we going to sleep every day and both of us came there after work). That was kind of tiring. And on January we’ve realised, that our contracts are coming to an end so we’ve started looking for a flat. We had only one week to move out from both places, so we had to take whatever was avaiable. And this is how we ended up in our current location. It isn’t that bad, but could be better. Now we want to make choice, so slowly we are going through all offers.

Second thing is, that I am almost sure, that in December this year my website is going to be ready to be released. I am so exited about this, but there is still so much to do. Any way, this is not the end: in February or March 2018, I am going to start my app’s releasing proccess. I thing now it will be avaiable only for android (but who knows? Maybe somehow I can manage to code it for IOS as well? I’ll try to do my best 😉 ). Closer to releasing dates, I am going to tell you something more about it. Any way working on both those projects take huge amount of my time and energy (but it’s fun as well 😉 ).

And last, but the most stressfull thing is sorting out my university. I was supposed to be enrolled in June, but because of some problem I was assured, that I am going to start in October instead. Unfortunately next week my classes are supposed to strart and there is no confirmation from my uni. So every day (literaly every day, maybe except weekends) I am making tons of phone calls, just to try straighten it up. Please, keep your finger crossed for this 😉

And all things I have mentioned, make me very tired. Especially, because I need to do it after my full-time job. Almost every night I am going to bed with no sense, that I am doing so. Some kind of day-dreaming. And this is not even a joke. I have a feeling, that I am sleeping already, while I am still on my way to bed.

A lot of friends ask me, what is the point of getting so tired every day (they don’t know yet, that occassionally I am posting here as well, as I didn’t want to make fake crowd. What I mean: people checking what I’ve wrote just only because I am their friend, so they are supposed to do this). Well, answer is very easy: because it is fun for me. It makes me feel, that I am not wasting my time and actualy I can see results of my actions. And do you know what? This is amazing feeling 🙂

Ok, but for now I am going to eat some dinner, as I’ve just came from my work and get back to designing my website (or better to say: creating it’s content).

I wish you all very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.

As more you’ll do now, as less you’ll need to do later

Hi guys,

When I’m starting writting this post, I am on my way home. When I came to work for the first time after my holiday, I wanted just to sit and cry. I haven’t been there for three weeks, so in first two weeks they’ve got my job done, but last week have been waiting for me. Literally, when I saw it, I wanted to take my stuff, go home and never come back. But I’ve stayed. For all this time I’ve been working 12-16 hours a day and today, finally I’ve finished almost on time (only half an hour later).

But why am I talking about it? Because while I was talking to my cousin, she has asked me, why am I working so much. I could just take my time and keep catching up little by little. This is some kind of solution. And not too bad. The only problem is, that I am going to start my uni in October, so I will be missing two days every week. And if I wouldn’t be able to get up to date by this time, my work-life would become a real nightmare.

All this disscution made me remember, what my parents kept telling me when I was a child: “as much you’ll do now, as less you will need to do later. If something will come out out of the blue, what you should have done yesterday, this will be the only thing.”

And to be honest, just now I’ve realised how true it is. This time there isn’t any new task which have joined my to do list, so today I can go to bed without tons of things to do in my head.

Ok, and one more thing: in one post, quite long before I’ve left for holiday, I’ve been telling you, that I am trying another technique to make planning my work better.

First I will quickly remind you, what all of this was about:

You need to write down all your task, no matter how big or small they are. Next step is to label each of them with one of four groups:

1. Urgent and important;

2. Urgent, but not important;

3. Not urgent, but important;

4. Not urgent and not important.

As you do this, you need to do all tasks according to numer of group starting from first one. And all tasks from last group, you need to delegate or if they are not time consuming, you might do them on your own, but only if you have enough time. You can resign of them, as well (they aren’t important, are they?).

Here are my conclusions:

  • Method is ok, but not perfect for me. It really helped me to realise, what shall I accomplish as first (as before I was trying to do, what was easier for me). That made me finish my urgent task first, so they haven’t become overdue;
  • What hasn’t work for me, is fourth group. Well, I had some tasks, which landed there, but at the moment I can’t afford to delegate them to anyone (as it’s equal to paying salary to someone). I couldn’t just throw them away from my list, as they would become urgent at some point. So as a result, I had to work on them any way. Same amount of work stayed for me.
  • But if I would have my own company (and what more important: people I can delegate some tasks), this method, if combined with some other, would be perfect for me.

I thing, that I will use this method any way. Only to get a view, what is to be done really quickly. Now, I am going to give it a try, when combined with one more method. And after having any opinion, I’ll let you know about method (as I haven’t choosen any yet) and how do they work together.

But for now I will finish this post, as everything I wanted to share has been written. I hope you took some time to rest a bit during your holiday and as always, I wish you very productive day.

Everything what’s good is going to be finished one day…

Hi guys,

Today’s post is being written from the coach. Well, I had great time with my family, but holiday can’t last for ever (how sad it is, isn’t it?). When I am starting writting this post, I have been on my way for one hour already. And there are another twenty seven hours in front of me.

When I was younger, me and my friends were going for holiday together quite often. We were traveling by coach or train (rarely we had an opportunity to travel by car). And as traveling in company isn’t this bad (especially, that we have never travel for longer than five hours), traveling on your own is becoming quite boring. Unless you have some work to be done and you want to use your time to get your to-do list shorter.

Unfortunately, I don’t think there is anyone, who can work for twenty eight hours continuously. If there is someone who can work so long, well: respect. I can’t. After four hours of reading, I need to ensure, my eyes are able to rest a bit. So my way to survive such a long time, actualy in one position, without possibility to strech your legs and walk a bit (of course there are some breaks, approximately every four to five hours) is to skip one night sleep, just before your journey. So you can fall asleep easily, while you are on board. And at least some of those time will be gone quicker. Of course it isn’t like sleeping in your own, comfortable bed. But let’s make it clear: it’s better than nothing.

Ok. This post has been produced over two days. While I am writting this, I’ve just came to an end of my twenty eight hour long journey. I had already some sleep as well.

I don’t know how many of you is living far from place, where you were born, how many of you left family behind.

Well, I did. And I don’t regret this. The only problem is, that everywhere is someone, who I miss. This time during my holiday, my dad and husband stayed in London. I missed both of them a lot, but while living in London I miss my mum, brothers and friends.

So here are some thoughts about my journey. I know, they aren’t very constructive, but this is what I was thinking about. I will go and have some nap now (or maybe good sleep this time?). I wish you all very productive days and I’ll see you in my next post.

Changes, changes and again: changes all around us!

Hi guys,

Well, it’s me again. After long, long time of absence. But I went for unplanned holiday. I intended to keep publishing, but after not seeing my family for more than half year, I wanted to spend as much time as I possibly can with them. And this is what I did.

As you may know, I have been having some health problems recently and this made me to go for holiday. I had to stop working for some time, so I can recover properly and who knows better place to recover than home you were growing in?

Now I am still back in my home, where there are so many great memories round every corner. All games, we were playing with my brothers, all conversations we had with our parents. Everything what have been making me happy, every struggle I needed to face… All this came to me.

But even if there is so many things, which hasn’t changed since I was a child, there is a lot of things I can’t reconize. Buildings in my home town have been renovated, there are many new ones as well. Some shopes I use to go before, don’t exist any more, but they are many more open instead. And finally people. Children I used to play with in past, aren’t children any more. They are adults now. Some of them have their own children already and everything what have left are our memories.

When we are staying in one place, we don’t see how many changes are taking place in our surrounding. We are meeting our family members and friends on daily basis, so we can’t record how different they are becoming. Our surrounding is changing as well, but all those changes are happening one by one and we are just getting used to them. They are becoming something, what we see every day. And we can’t even realise, when an old place have been changed and replaced by the new one.

Those changes are happening all the time. Not only in places where we used to live or where we are living currently. They are taking place all around the word. Let’s take technology for instance. Even if you were born in 90’s, when you were growing up, you propably haven’t got even simple cell phone. And children who were born just ten years after you, have smartphones (well, at least a lot of them do). When you have been spending hours and hours in library, just to find some information for your homework, they have everything at home (well, uncle google does know everything, doesn’t he?). Ok, when I was going to school, I could only dream to have at least computer without internet connection.

And what about medicine? Before, if you were born without leg, for example or you have loose some in the accident, you had to learn how to survive without it. At the moment, you can have a brand new robot one. That just amazing. Nowadays almost everything seem possible. Just imagine, than not so long ago people could only dream about flying. At the moment, any time you need or just want, you can book a ticket and plane is going to take you wherever you want. Simple like that…

You might be wondering, why I am talking so much about changes. Everyone knows, they are all around us, we don’t need to be super-perceptive to see that. But in my opinion very often we can’t realize, how quickly all those changes are going. We can easily say: with rocket’s speed. And this is amazing, but a bit scaring at the same time. Because how can we be sure, that tomorrow some invention will not get out of control?

But the biggest concern of mine is, that a lot of this changes seem to make us, human-beings less human-alike. People prefer to record someone’s accident, to upload it on youtube or anywhere else, instead of simply help. There is a lot of people (and what is more worrying: children as well), who can damage their health in various types of challenges, just to get new subscribers or likes and, what is much worse, there is a lot of people, who can ruin someone’s else life, for the same reasons.

Ok, but as an optimist, I need to belive, that people will still be people, who can enjoy all those changes wisely and use them to make our world a better place for everyone. And with this I am going to finish this post. I wish a very productive day to all of you (or if you are on holiday like me, I wish you to have a lot of relax, so you can face your normal schedule with smile on your face).

I see you in my next post

P.S. As I was talking about changes everywhere around us, I need to tell you about one change in my attitude, which is highly connected with this post. What I have realised while being in my mum’s home is, that I’ve started seeing this blog, as some kind of commitment (well, it is some kind of commitment, but in my case it was in very negative way). My own website became for me something, what I HAVE to do, instead of what I WANT to do. No matter what, no matter how I have to produce something. While, in my opinion, it should be nothing more, but fun. So I’ve decided not writting about what have been done, even if this was main purpose of this website. But simply write random things I’ve been thinking about or I’ve red recently. And just have fun about it. But to keep this blog as “My motivation” blog, I will be simply updating you as soon as any of my big projects will be finished, or when any new will come on sight.

I hope you will enjoy it as well 🙂

Another thing to test (days twenty four and twenty five)

Hi guys,

Today, while I was sitting in bus on my way to work, I’ve been searching internet. I wanted to read my book, but I forgott it at home. Any way, I found another thing, I am going to test in next couple of weeks. This thing is, prioritizing my tasks.

I don’t remember at the moment, how this method is called, but I can shortly explain how does it work.

So first of all you need to have all your tasks written, so you can easily see them. Next step is to put them into one of four groups: urgent and important; urgent, but not important; important, but not urgent; not important and not urgent (I am going to change it a bit, and instead of ‘not’ I am going to have ‘less’).

While doing your tasks, you are doing them in order, as I mentioned them above. This way, even if you can’t do all of them, as you planned (let’s be honest: it does happen very often) you are going to do at least those the most urgent and the most important. There are some separate procedures for last group, but I am going to explain it in more details, when I will share, how did it work for me 😉

Today’s post is going to be one of the shortest ones. Only one more thing I want to tell you. Self-development’s book post was suppoused to appear today, I have even rewritten it in wordpress (rewrite means copy and paste in this case 😉 ), but yesterday I had analysed my free time and I’ve realised, that Wednesday is the most busy day in my week. So I’ve decided to move it to Friday, as this is the lightest one (still busy, but better than the other ones). I know I have been changing it many times so far, but this time I tought about this very carefully and this is the best solution.

Ok, and I think that’s everything for today. I wish you all very productive day and I see you in Friday’s post.
