The Crazy Things We Do

It’s almost October…and that means writing for 31 days straight.  Yikes.

Always a stretch but at the end a feeling of great accomplishment.  And as it’s been in previous years I haven’t thought it all completely through.  I’ll be as surprised as you are each day ????.

I’ve landed on the title of “The Crazy Things We Do” – I initially wanted to name it “Stop” but the word stop implies that we are doing something wrong that needs to be stopped.  While some of our actions and behaviors aren’t as desirable as others… they’re not necessarily wrong.  This month won’t be about should or shame – more about awareness and alternatives.

AND…I’ve decided to double down and write 31 days over at Slay The Chaos as well – that series is titled 31 days of Productivity Hacks.  Hope you tag along either here or there or both…and as always…I would love to hear your thoughts.
