Getting Back in the Habit

This year is the year of "self education". It occured to me that I've just been waiting for wisdom to just smack me upside the head and it wasn't really happening. So I've taken matters into my own hands. I'm renting audio books from the library and listening to them while I drive.

Sometimes there are nuggets of wisdom and I want to be able to remember them. While I take cryptic notes on a pink steno pad when I'm stuck in traffic, I'm afraid it's not really going to sink in. So I'm going to blog about what I learn and hopefully that will ingrain it in my brain. If anyone happens to read this, hopefully what I learn can be of use to you too.

What I'm currently listening to:
Getting Things Done by David Allen

What I've listened to:
The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn
Light on Life by B.K.S. Iyengar

What I learned today:
Stop procrastinating when it comes to making decisions. If a project or task comes in, don't avoid it. Make a decision as to what the next action is and if it will take less than two minutes do it. If not, decide how you will address it and when.
