45: DITCH THE LIST: How The Tickler File Changed My Life
Show Notes

Welcome to Dream Big and Implement Small, I’m Jennessa Durrani. I help women discover their meaning outside of motherhood AND the energy to pursue it through simple 10 minute a day systems and practices so that you can feel whole once again. And this is my podcast where each week in 20ish minutes or less I share my tips, tricks hacks and stories on how to dream big and implement small to go from chaos to calm.

"Starve your distractions, feed your focus."

In last week's episode I talk about how busy does not equate productive and neither of them determine your worth. In the discussion I noted that I use a ticker file as the number one tool in my arsenal to keep me focused on what matters most in any given moment. It's a tool that I have been using daily for the past 15+ years. As promised, this week I dove into how I came to use this method, why lists are just keeping us in a state of overwhelm, and how using a tickler file can change your life!

Here is the link to the Tickle Me Organized article within the Daily Practice Community. Once you join the free community you will have access to the article.

And here is my article 3 Secrets to Getting It All Done which is a great complementary article to the tickler file.

I would still love for you to join the Happy Mail Circle to up your own happy mail practice. Once a month I will send you four beautiful inspirational postcards with the stamps because who the heck has time to go to the post office. And each week I will give you ideas on who to send them to and even what to say.  

10% of the proceeds of the Happy Mail Circle benefit the work of Compassion Takes Action.
