    First Meeting for the variety show was fun if a bit disorganized. Mike's suggested song will be used. He doesn't have a solo song, but will sing in the group numbers and be the bar busboy. I will be singing " Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" in an Andrews Sisters like trio and "Sentimental Journey" on my own. I let the directors put me where they wanted me.

    The director of "They're Playing our Song" has approached me 3 times about that show. Back in March he told me he wanted me for the lead. Last week, he made sure I intended to audition on Sept 3rd. Last night he told me that he would have the script for me next week. Gotta love favoritism in the theater. What lost me a role in "Hairspray" could get me the lead in another show. Hope I don't end up getting disappointed.

    BIW mod 3 lesson 9 Create Plays

    -Luck has nothing to do with will power. You need to create a series of plays to deal with an issue. A five step action process. ie. Starbucks LATTE method for customer relations

    - Get Stickey with it. Create an acronym to help you remember the steps.

    - Leverage muscle memory. Behavior change is enhanced when an awareness is connected with an action.

    You've got just what they want. Exciting to be courted like that.

    I'm still trying to puzzle out an appropriate rumble strip for my projects situation. But while I was doing so, I sat myself in the front room and did some clearing. Thanks for the inspiration, Pebbles!

    My paperwork, mail & email plan...

    Delete and dispose of junk mail as it comes in.
    Evaluate what action needs to be taken. ( Pay the bill, answer the email)
    Action those items at least once a week. (Sunday is my bill pay/paperwork day)
    Label & file or dispose. (Decide if it needs to be kept & where it should go. Put it in its' place.)

    Have you ever read "Getting Things Done"? It was a book that really helped me get things organized. One thing he says -- and I found this particularly true -- was that you need to identify the very next step you need to take to get something done. Seems reasonable, most of us think we do that. But, a lot of time we either skip steps or lump multiple things together. For example, maybe you need to call this doctor for an appointment, but never seems like you do. Maybe, the next step is not to call the doctor, but call your friend for the phone number because you lost the number. It was amazing how many times I putting things off because there were intermediate steps I needed to take.

    He also has a nice system for dealing with email. I literally gets hundreds a day at work. I'm by no means perfect, but his system has helped me have better control at least. One of his things (and this goes for mail too) is that we look at things, that we don't need to, multiple times. I can post more later (in my journal, so I stop hijacking Paula's journal).

    For email, unless, I have allowed the sender into my inbox, everything goes to junk. I mostly delete junk several times daily, but do look for the occasional friend or important email. Same with snail mail, I throw away the junk as I walk in the door and open all other mail, set aside the bills and toss the rest. It is unlikely that you will toss an important bill or notice, and it really keeps the pile under control. Mail is easy to avoid if bills stress you out, this is why I have always tried to tackle the worst jobs first as they are never as bad as I have built them up to be in my head. if I feel overwhelmed, I can always take a break, let my brain process it for a while and then get back to it

    Thanks for posting this stuff. We all have messy parts of our life we would like to tackle, but get lost in the "mess"!

    BIW Module 3 Lesson 1

    1) Visualize a successful outcome to your issue like Michael Phelps visualizes every moment of a race.

    2) Create a concrete version of your vision in pictures or on a vision board. Dean's dream is to do a TED talk. He has a photoshopped pic on his desktop of him speaking on the TED stage.
