Give It Up in 2011

With a nod to the ever-inspirational Sam Davidson, here are 11 things I can do without in 2011:

  1. Clothes I haven’t worn in two years. I’m bagging them up now for donation.
  2. Duplicate copies of books that I bring home, forgetting that one copy already rests on a shelf or in a backpack waiting to be read for the first time.
  3. People who live to criticize.
  4. Wasted downtime. Use it or lose it.
  5. My obsession with getting an old car back that I wish I’d never sold.
  6. Fear of Skype.
  7. Worrying about things I can’t change.
  8. The third datebook I bought, hoping it will help me get more organized. As soon as I find datebooks one and two, I’m sure I’ll be on top of things and won’t need the third one.
  9. Comparing myself to others.
  10. Group emails with recipients’ email addresses visible. Repeat after me: “Bcc.”
  11. That extra 15 pounds.

  1. Ooo! I often make the Bcc mistake. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Ack…another datebook junkie…it’s a habit that gives me NO rush. I’m giving it up now too. In the end it only adds to the guilt I feel about not being organized!
