I have generaly been quite anal about keeping stuff that is important and generally in a certain place but over the last few years I havee been through countless jobs, apartments and cities. I now have a child. And recently my love decided to make our house into a home by dropping a ton of money in IKEA and redoing everything.
The work is getting done but the to do list in the back of my head has become very convoluted and has now kept me up at night too often. Having a litle boy now adds to my worries and I know I have to get on top of everything before I can make my life an efficient and productive machine!
Write down everything that I haven’t finished or has to be started.
Find every piece of paper and either chuck it, file it or act on it.
Make an action plan to get everything done.
Design a system to stay on top of everything and get it out of my head.
Being environmentally friendly is a lot like voting. Every vote counts as much as every little helps but it is all too easy to say that the little things you spend so much time and energy changing in your lifestyle will have little impact on the gloabal problem. How can a little rubbish sorting stop global warming. But then, how can your one vote influence the political administration of your country?
It all has to be done. It is all so overwhelming. It needs an objective. My objective is to turn my life green over time so that some time in the not too far future I will be an environmentally astute consumer, I will produce as much energy as I consume and I will make it all effortless.
The key is effortlessness. Otherwise I may spend most of my time labouring green and not getting on with my life.
In the future I have already planned on builing my own home so that would be a good opportunity to incorporate energy efficient design, water solutions, green and ethical bulding practices and design it so that my house uses less energy than it eventually prouces, and once built this building will do all this greenery automagically.
I will evaluate everything I consume from food to business services. The problem will be figuring out alternatives to things like air travel and the heavy environmental burden of producing certain “green” products. I cannot forego them but do I make up or sacrifice another part of my life. Also, will I be stuck with forever paying through the nose for green products or are there reasonable ways I could alter my own habits.

As a salesman I have to figure out ways to market. For me this is easy, I have stuff made, done or designed.
Recently, I came into some stock that I could sell for my own profit. The easiest way would be online. So I paid for hosting and looked at some templates and looked at the e commerce software and looked at its templates and it was all pants. I asked around and basically I could get something designed but everytime I want it chnged or updated it will also cost me… even though it is al aparently relatively straightforward.
SO I want to do it all myself to my standard.
