Thanks for pushing through and creating this content! I always waste so much time trying to find the perfect organisation system for everything. I can spend weeks working out goals, routines, plans, which all just distract me from doing things that matter. I’m trying to simplify the ways I decide what goes on my to-do list, relax if I don’t get to it, and quietly analyse if what I am doing is helping me towards my goals (or worse, taking me further away). I’ve learned how perfectionism impacts on my life (especially ‘waiting’ until I have a perfect eating plan, fitness plan etc. to lose weight. I started today, on a whim, on a FRIDAY!! And hopefully won’t throw it in at the first sign of imperfection). I have a simple diary and created a quick simple system. The complex systems don’t work for me beyond a few weeks. I just wanted to thank you for all the time you have committed to putting your knowledge down on paper and helping us all! And this post is grammatically imperfect but who cares, right? I don’t want to spend the extra 10 minutes redoing it!
Thank you, Hayley! 🙂
I’m so glad to hear you’ve made progress! Keeping it simple and achievable is key. All the best to you!

I have really enjoyed this 7 days and look forward to being productive in really important things. I have DSSN scheduled on my calendar for the next 31 days (I know forming a new habit is meant take 21 days – taking an extra 10 just to be sure …… Or …… Is that the perfectionist speaking ). Thank you so much!
I know it is past 7 days, but day 8 and I stayed on task and accomplished a lot
Starting is hard. Catching up is harder.
I started this program with great expectations of myself, to sit down every day and do the assignments, but what happened? I would open up the lesson and read through but then I had to list things…and complete an assignment….( I knew that going into the program) ….well I didn’t have time right then to do that…I had something else I had to do, something more pressing….something little. Well this program is so good, I wish I had taken the time each day to do the assignment rather than play catch up.
It will take some time to break the many bad habits I have been living with, but I recognize that STARTING IS HARD and I will decide, I will start, I will stick with it and I will move onto the next magic activity. See you in more classes.
What a simple concept that starting is hard. Completing adopting the idea of not labeling and instead to acknowledge behaviour then manage behaviour. The last seven days for me has been a journey of learning how I operate best. I am applying the concept to my life and will continue to do so as they are not automatic yet.
I wanted to take this class because I wasn’t paying bills, opening mail, planning, anything paper I was ” deciding” not to do. I wouldn’t have ever guessed that taking my work to a busy coffee shop would be part of the answer. I’ve done it twice this week and I plan on making it a regular morning thing.. coffee and paper. Another thing I took on was making sales calls back to customers. I did that for 2 days and my sales soared. This class paid for itself!!
I hope to revisit this 7 day course. There are some activities I want to tackle again. Thank you!
Thanks for an amazing 7 days! I’m off on my own this week…but I will be checking in here periodically to make sure I don’t forget things! I have my DSSN post its up and I’m ready to go! Wish me luck!
I’m interested to see how I do in 2 weeks, this will be my biggest test. I’m a very good starter and struggle with the staying power…if I can stick with this for 2 weeks – that would be brilliant. I”ll get back to you to let you know how I did!
Very nice reframing…can definitely cause a paradigm shift…starting IS often hard for me lately. Allowing the choice of starting or not starting is a better framework no doubt. Found Michele’s mention of the kanban timer intriguing and will look into it. At this point I think I need to go refine some of my exercises as I have had things start to gel from more specific lists to simply having more aha experiences as I let my mind marinate in this in the background. Or better said, since I have hooks now where to hang this, things to hang are appearing. (:
