“Do not let planning get in the way of progress.”

10 03 2009

I have quoted that line probably a thousand times in my lifetime. I originally used it in a project management class that I taught in a previous life.

As humans we tend to be perfectionists and we often plan, plan, plan so much that the project of our dreams and the essential tasks of life never get anywhere.

We silly humans also like to procrastinate. Avoiding the unfun (is so a word) tasks in life is way easier than getting them done. Or so we think. Those tasks often haunt us daily and sometimes nightly. Getting them done is essential to stress-free living.

Even I, Kathy Howe, the person that coined the statement in this blog title, is guilty of doing exactly that from time to time.

Well no more.

This site is dedicated to helping me (and you!) stop planning and start doing the things in life that need to get done. Sometimes those things are not pretty, fun, sexy or appealing but they are important nonetheless.

I spent several years as a Professional Organizer and I have been a Project Manager for more years than I care to admit. I also spent a short period of time teaching classes on Charisma a few years ago. I am going to attempt to blend all of those skills to hopefully provide a website that is more of a kick in the ass than a presentation of information.

You can get information from thousands of resources. You KNOW what you need to be doing. This site is about being accountable for the tasks you need to get done.

Who is ready to do this with me?
