    Well done Angela, using a To Do list is a perfect way to achieve more, however a little warning. You can bite off more than you can chew, leaving you depressed if you don’t finish them. SMART techniques are a good principle to follow. When setting tasks allocate the time you think it will take to complete each task. That way you can soon see if you are being unrealistic. Plus it also sets small goals for each task. You will know instantly if you are on target each step of the way instead of increasing panic as the day goes by. If you adopt this principle, you will quickly get good at setting realistic and achievable goals.

    That being said, power to you, the more you can achieve the better. Don’t let me stop you.

    30 photos I can use.
    12 edited, uploaded.
    4 Product descriptions I am happy with.
    Made template for business cards.
    Napped.
    Napped some more (first kid free weekend in a LONG time)

    • Print and cut business cards
    • Make Price Signs
    • Decide on what to do about Jewellery props for this upcoming market..
