The Best Thing I Learned This Year.

I am always trying new things.  Most of the info I have gathered over the last several years is ways to do less:

  • Less stressing over things I did not get done.
  • Less wasting my time and try to be more productive.
  • Less headaches from going over my continually growing to-do list.

The year started off with my same old messes, and no real grasp of anything I had researched seemed to help me get it together.


Then I read the “Kaizen Way” – AMAZINGLY SIMPLE.

According to this recent MMN article:

Why you should add some Kaizen to your life

Japanese practice of continuous improvement isn’t just for business.

I am on the right path.

I also signed up (for free) on, which has become my perfect place for my to-do lists.  It is free, and set up in bullet formatting, AND did I mention it is FREE?   I have broken it down into all my major tasks (including things I want to do before the year is up) and then narrowed them down using the Kaizen Method.  (P.S. If you need some great help with Workflowy, they have a fantastic YouTube set up for instructions)


Helpful Hint for the website: LEARN THE RIGHT SIDE CHEAT SHEET!  I use it all the time.  It’s also great to know that my completed tasks can be crossed off, removed from the list, AND brought back up in case I need to review.

If you are not sure the method is for you – read the article from Mother News Network.  If you want more detail – get the book.  I got mine in Kindle and paperback formats.  The paperback is my prepper instinct to save just in case the net or power blows (go ahead and laugh).  It is also the writer in me to crave the feel of paper as I read.

Hope you enjoyed my helpful tip today and hope it can help you too.
