These Lists are Shortcuts for Life

I’m all for shortcuts — that’s why I make so many lists about whatever task I’m working on.  Whether it be looking for an apartment or finding a new restaurant I like to work things out on paper and give myself a cheat sheet.  I’ve written about my new favorite source for cheat sheets called SkinnyScoop.com.  It’s a great website that gives visitors the “skinny” on all sorts of topics to make life easier.

I’ve compiled a couple of lists for the site about how to be more productive and the best websites for planning a vacation.  It’s great fun to make lists using their software and to read some of the others on the site.  You can comment on and add to any list you like. It’s a nice way to interact and find shortcuts for just about anything.  You’ll find ways to declutter, the best subscription websites, amazing dessert recipes, etc.

I’m honored to be named as one of the SkinnyScoop Tastemakers.  That means that I’m part of a group of 9 women who will actively contribute to the site and offer our expertise in our various fields.  So I’ll be making lists about making lists! Perfect — I can do that!  I hope you’ll check out the site, upload your own lists and read through some of mine and the other Tastemaker’s lists.

Top Productivity Blogs

I’ve written many many blogs about how to be more productive at work and at home. It’s so easy to get distracted but there are so many ways to keep your focus.  My favorite (as you know) is keeping a list.  There are also websites that will help you get more done and be more efficient. I was lucky enough to be named amongst the “Top 50 Productivity Blogs of 2011” by Evan Carmichael and his Entrepreneurial Blog.  Check it out — I’m number 15!

I went through the other blogs listed and here are some of my favorites that I think will help you:
