Monday Marketing

So it is the end of Monday, and I am slowly getting things done in marketing. The last two weeks haven’t been incredibly productive – things have gotten done if they have had definite deadlines. Otherwise I have been plodding along, thinking about things to do, but that’s as far as it went. Which is why this article from Dumb Little Man hit home. Sometimes it just seems like there is a huge roadblock in your way – in this case, an icebereg.

“Icebergs can be deceiving, because what you see above water level is only the visible part of it. However, in some cases the iceberg could be a huge ice mountain, where the majority of its size is hidden underwater. Do you now see the connection between a iceberg and those certain types of tasks on your to do list? The task may look insignificant outside, but there is so much more to it than you think. It’s the hidden part that fools us into underestimating a task and promises an unrealistic optimistic timetable for finishing it.”

I think making my lists sometimes turns into an iceberg….I am still playing catch-up with to-do’s from four weeks ago.

To balance this article is another one from Dumb Little Man about balance.

4. Give yourself mini-breaks whenever you can.

8. Allow yourself the freedom to say “no.”

So I’m considering the last two weeks a mini-break….that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

  • Great articles. Some weeks it seems that you can accomplish so much, but other weeks, nothing.

    I have been give myself mini-vacations. On Sunday afternoons, I’ve been going to the library. Although I’m still working on stuff–website, new business plans, etc. I find that being away from home and the studio, I can concentrate much better.

  • Lynn:

    Lovely work here Linda . So glad you have jumped aboard on art quilts around the world.

  • I like the idea of the mini-vacations. Clearing the head is always good!

  • Thank you, Lynn! I’m looking forward to the challenges!
