    I will be taking part in the Coach House Players annual variety show. I auditioned last night singing Patsy Cline's "Crazy". It was fun to be with my friends again.

    Love Patsy Cline! My aunt used to walk around the house singing that song as she dusted, my aunt's voice was almost as good at Patsy's, at least to my young ears. Lovely memories. I am sure that will give you something fun to look forward to doing, so it is not all work this summer.

    Love the focus shift to behaviors and small steps. I often feel like, reading from the outside looking in, that it seems like you tend to tackle such huge steps in one go. For me, following along with your journey, the small steps will be easier on me anyway

    I believe some things need to be done all at once. Like ripping off a band aid. My problem is not taking huge steps, but follow through. I don't continue to follow the plan...whether big or small. Hoping to learn how to retrain myself on this issue.

    Well, maybe then it is not so much the size of the steps, but how many you take on at once. For me if I try to change more than one or two things I basically forget that I am doing them. I like the idea from, I think it was Precision Nutrition, that you break down the step into as small a piece as you know you can manage for essentially 3 weeks, then once that becomes habit and you built up confidence you can add another piece. I mean, I like it mentally, it makes sense, I haven't accomplished it yet, and well, I forgot about it till just now. Maybe what I need to work on is my memory?

    in my opinion............ any emails that are more than a month old are obsolete anyway and could easily be deleted without even reading. If its a FWD and is nonsense it isn't worth my time or energy to give it any attention other than a click to delete.

    An option to the email problem: Look at only what has come in the past month - keep what is important, respond to what is necessary - delete everything else.

    With emails as with paperwork, i need to severely reevaluate what needs to be kept.

    with my emails, I have folders, and everyday I go through and read the emails, then either answer by the end of the day or put in a folder or delete. So my inbox is cleaned daily. Then about once a month I go through the folders and delete or save depending on what it is. It is much easier to delete an email that has been sitting in a folder for a month than it is to delete it from my inbox for some reason. In the folders I have for different projects that I have going on, when the project is done I can delete the whole folder.

    p.s. the system does not work as well with paperwork, and that is why I hate mail so much!

    I have, right now, 2105 email in my inbox at work... I need to clean it out as well.

    How I do this is by sorting by who the sender is. Then I can delete entire categories at once - like say all my emails from my husband or a girlfriend at work. Once I narrow it down that way, I work on things by subject. Since it's work stuff and we never know when something is going to resurface, I try to file anything work related so I can find it again later. Makes for a mess of files, but sometimes it has to be done.

    And since you have gotten me thinking about this, the inbox will be my task for the day.
