Warmly, Beth


  1. Schedule a monthly catch up day for filing, fixing and catching up.
  2. Watch overplanning – planning so much that you don’t take action.
  3. Think of a recent problem – how can you make it so it might not happen again?
  4. Buy extra of something that always runs out.
  5. What are you doing right now that is for image sake only? Have a life, not a lifestyle.
  6. Decide to make no promises this week. Do instead of promise.
  7. Don’t respond to everything. Filter out what you don’t need to respond to.
