New Year, new strategies, maybe the novelty helps
You may know that I’m a big fan of index cards. My system of colored cards I keep in my shirt pocket. I call that half my brain. The other half of my brain, I call Martha.
Scott has given me another use of index cards, and I really like it.
I got this strategy from Scott:
… one thing I’m trying is I have a pile of 3X5 cards with quotes I have collected on them. Each day or so I take the card from the top and put it on the bottom, revealing a new quote for the day. When I find something that works (and remember to do this) I sometimes write it down as if it were a quote and put it in the pile so I will run into it some day in the future. Sometimes that gets me started doing it again. Also, I don’t always put the old card on the bottom of the pile. If it is something I want to run into again sooner I will put it somewhere in the middle of the pile.
Mottoes, Tips, Strategies, Prompts, Quotes?
I keep the cards on my desk where they’re easily seen. I’m not sure what to call them. Recently I had a week of feeling pressured, overloaded and over whelmed, and that’s when I started using the cards. They have helped.
Focus on the positive.
Take it easy.
What does it matter?
We’ve learned that our brain can generate new brain cells. Yea! So maybe this is a third part of my brain.
Bonus Spanish verb O the day:
zumbar – to buzz, hum, flutter around
That’s kind of what I was doing.
