Hosted by Michelle at Because Reading is better than real life!

What is Task It Tuesday? It is where every week I list a task or tasks that I would like to accomplish on my blog or in Real Life before next Tuesday. It can be big or small but the goal is to get something done that will make my blog/reading life/challenges run smoother, faster, or more efficient and/or get those simple or complex tasks done in my real life. I will also be sharing organizing tips and linking with posts from bloggers that have some great tips and tricks for keeping you and your blog/real life organized.

It’s time to finish out the year. The next two weeks the list will basically stay the same since I want to finish up everything listed below so that the last two weeks of the month I can focus on family and the holidays. I also want to be able to spend the week after Christmas getting a bunch of stuff ready for next year. I have idea and some will take a little time to get organized but I am excited about it. Once I write the Out/In post you will find out what some of them are. I am hoping to accomplish a lot, I was proud of all I did this last week and I hope to continue.

Goals this week:

Tasks will be moved around and some I might not get to, this is an outline of what I hope my week will look like, and what I will be able to accomplish.

  1. Egads! Reading the list of your to-do’s makes me anxious! 😉 I have to get all my challenge signup posts done. And I’m still finishing the last bit of my book which I wrote during NaNo. I think I’d like for you to mentor me in getting organized during 2017. Are you up for that challenge? LOL I’m finding it very difficult to balance everything, Michelle. I can feel my anxiety level rising….

    • Not sure if you ever did Dewey but it’s one of my favorites 🙂 I try to list my favorite events to share or ones I find interesting.

    • I tried making a list but I would never do anything with it. I found this to be 100 times better and keeps me focused on what has to be done, instead of stressing about a huge list.
