“Drawing the Box” + Last Day

Do you feel the tension? It’s a difficult time for everyone right now. You can sense the stress as you go about your day — picking up your kids, shopping at the store, etc. I continue to “draw the box,” focusing on what I can control (see this pdf ebook if you need a refresher).

March 10th is the Last Day for the Business Bundle

I know many of you have an interest in starting a “side hustle,” or creating an income stream through writing or something creative. The webinar replay is available from earlier today (focused on business and marketing).

And if you’re interested in the bundle, Tuesday (March 10th) is the last day!

As mentioned last week, I am a contributor and affiliate to 5DayDeal.com’s Complete Business + Marketing Bundle 2020 this year! The charity bundle portion includes my Optimize Your Productivity Course and ebook!

Willpower and The Complete Business + Marketing Bundle 2020

Two main topics for today: what I’m reading and also a special opportunity if you’re an author/business owner/aspiring entrepreneur, etc.!

If you’ve struggled with willpower (or procrastination), I highly recommend Roy F. Baumeister and John Tierney’s book: Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength. I borrowed the book from my local library and it’s fascinating (and helpful). Note that I had referenced their work (specifically “ego depletion”) in my Optimize Your Productivity book, in case their names seemed familiar!

The Complete Business + Marketing Bundle 2020 by 5DayDeal.com.

To get the full picture of this bundle, I think it’s best to head on over to the site to see entire offer, including information about the charity bonus, sponsors, and more: Bundle offer.

I am a proud contributor and affiliate for this offer. I had researched the 5DayDeal.com site ahead of participating, and found them to be quite professional. If you’re interested in learning more and having access to more resources (or even discounts) for your projects/business, check it out! 🙂

Please note that this deal is only available for a few days!

Think Inside the Box…plus a Giveaway

In my last post, I talked about how the new year had already proven to be challenging for me personally. The passing of loved ones, in addition to a lot of illness in our house, meant a rough start to 2020.

Now, with all the recent news, many of us feel stressed and overwhelmed. I’m reminded of some of the stress-management strategies I’ve used (and written about) to help focus on what I can control. The exercise of drawing the box physically, and determining where I can put my attention, helps me tremendously. If you would like a refresher on how to do the exercise, feel free to read or download this ebook I had created a few years ago: http://optimizebooks.com/bonus/. No opt-in required, simply click on the picture of the book to read the pdf file.

I sincerely hope the exercise may help relieve your stress!

To end this post on a positive note, I’d like to mention that there is a special giveaway offer from the 5DayDeal.com site. I am participating as an affiliate and contributor (you may notice my photo on this page!)

I will have more information on 5DayDeal very soon, so stay tuned!

Wishing you all well and the best for 2020 and beyond!
