    Hi Valerie

    I’ve decided that 2012 is going to be a year for action also. I like John’s comment about just picking one thing and sticking with it.

    The wisdom here is so simple, yet so true. I think we can sometimes suffer information overload because it’s so instantly accessible, that we become caught up in the consumption.

    Journalling reminds me of the concept of “free writing” where one just writes whatever comes to mind, letting the ideas flow freely onto the page. This can be good for overcoming procrastination and for awakening one’s creativity.

    For me I think the most important concept this year is the 2:1 principle. My output must be twice as much as my input. So if I spend 1 hour reading blogs and articles online, then I need to spend 2 hours writing articles and producing website content or helping others to.

    I hope 2012 is a productive one, not another “busy” one

    Hi Valerie,
    Love this sentiment. I always find that productivity begets productivity! So much can come from prioritising, having the right attitude and just good ol’ fashioned ‘getting on with it’! Good luck, Yvette
