Be Productive! Three Easy Steps

Three things in work are essential. The first is Facebook: turn it off. The second is Twitter: turn it off. The third is WordPress: turn it off.
Trifecta Writing Challenge
Here’s the challenge:
This weekend we are asking you to play around with the following quote:

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
–Henry James

We want you to follow the same general structure of the above quote.  Feel free to change the subject–tell us what’s important about coffee or houseplants or whatever you’d like.  Or else change up the modifier–instead of telling us what’s important, tell us what’s sexy or overrated or pernicious.  Your last three lines should closely echo James’s, giving us the same answer three times. – See more at:

  1. Well, you have certainly hit upon a universal theme with this post. For those keeping score, I use Twitter the most but, FB is not far behind. Social media is a time suck, for sure but, I wouldn’t want to go very long without it. I might miss something. 🙂

  2. The funny thing is, there are apps designed to help limit your time on electronic devices. But this hanging on the wall above a work station would do nicely! Thank you for linking up!

    1. It’s like going into some part of your house looking for something, getting distracted by something else, and forgetting why you went in there in the first place and realizing it’s hours later.

    1. It explains one thing for sure: why I’m about to start working on a Saturday instead of finishing what I needed to finish yesterday. And yet, here I am again.

  3. Ah, this is so true… unless self-publicizing is part of your work. And no one likes that part anyway. 🙂
