I am someone who usually runs behind the to do list and checking it off only as the last minute panic sets in. If I didn’t do it at the eleventh hour, is it even done?
Most of my posts go online just before the midnight for the same reason. At least I don’t panic as much as I used to and I have come to believe that I work better under pressure.
Okay maybe not, but we will never know cuz what else do you expect me to do? Work on it well before the time. You are crazy!
On a serious note, it is a vast improvement that I even have a to do list these days. I do not even want to recollect the messy days prior to that habit. I really want to get ahead of my tasks for a change. So help a sister out, let us talk about your time management and productivity techniques. Share what works for you and what not.
What I read this week
My reading this week has been on track. And it has been a while since it was on track! It was either 4 books a week or none at all. But hey, let us not get ahead of ourselves, touch wood.
I finished reading Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews and it made me laugh at place. I am not one for goofy laughter, especially not in a book. But this worked so well.
I also just finished The Big Four by Agatha Christie for the Classics N Christie club. And while I am not in love with it, it was not disappointing either. It was kinda okay, but not your usual Christie good, if that makes sense whatsoever.
