This is it friends; the end of my book “How do I get it all Done… and Still Have Time to Enjoy it?”
Today I’m sharing my last few thoughts on motivation and how I get stuff done even when I don’t feel like it.
It’s Monday. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a lot to do! Will I get it all done? Maybe, if I am reasonable when I define what “it all” should include today. Will I feel like doing all of it?
