The best investment this year: [HINT~they’re shoes aka clogs] my sister accidentally forgot them here after she came to stay with me for a couple weeks. During this phase of deep cleaning they weren’t that hard to find. They add about 3” three inches to my stature, they lift me up in more ways than one; I don’t need to wear socks with them and it feels like they’re moulding to my foot. My feet don’t ever get cold nor sweaty those heat-filled days.
I will post this review on Amazon and request compensation of a free pair a month that will still take me years to choose just one from a vast array and color or designs > both abstract & aesthetic designs. Colourful or conservative fashion taste will find one that appeals to everyone ~ regardless of gender!
I think my OPINION MATTERS and is catching on to algorithms as more and more engagement expands. I’ll have to back track to some stats to dig deeper as to who is helping get the word [or art or image or science] and sending positive folks my way. Thank you. XO jeannette
REALLY nice, light read on staying true to your brand: “Saying No to The Hall of Fame” by @kirkhsmith https://kirkhsmith.wordpress.com/2017/10/05/saying-no-to-the-hall-of-fame/ #sports #blog
I’m very thankful for the flourishing group of followers finding me here on Word Press, after so many years on blogspot (and still there), a BlogHER’s paradise is on Word Press.
Very much a tribe-like group of above average like-minded writers of varying kinds gather on Word Press … a place they soon start to drift to read the REAL quality content available to absorb, championing strong literary or entertainment value. That would seem to be the vibe that has caught on. A surge in readership, thank you.
A lot posted on YUPPYdom is circulated from my other blog “meanderingsABOUT” being a fabulous fashionista fighting her 50s, again on Blogspot.
This is original content.
I am establishing a footprint of content sprinkled around on social media and content sharing platforms. Building a brand and establishing a name, or reinforcing my evolving spirit of enthusiasm of testing the waters, setting the thermometer, and outcry when rules are broken.
None of my content is shareable without the express, written agreement between MOI: Jeannette Marshall aka @optioneerJM and the party who wants to use the content on their own blog or entertainment or professional ezine site.
It needed to be said.
For all of us, like Kirky, who writes what he knows and teaches lessons through his experience. Wisdom rebounds to those willing to catch it and make greater mistakes::… 2 steps forward, 3 steps back, 4 steps forward …..
Ever hear of cause’n’effect before?
It is a theory. Don’t ask me how or by whom, the great idea expounded to everyone’s great, deep, understanding ::….. either spiritually or mathematically, that for every action their is a reaction. Get it? I’m trying to get the great stuff outta here, which drown out the bad stuff. My dad would always ask us: “what’s the pay off?” I don’t know where that came from, really. Was it just amazing vision and understanding to determine that is the defining question by which all persons should be able to answer when struggling with a decision: “what’s the pay off”. Kind of like what someone else say: “what’s the worst that can happen? Now, tell me what is the best that could happen?
They say that you should blog at least 5 days a week if you want to make any tremors in the stratosphere. I’m hard pressed to sit down and write.
No shortage of ideas. Sometimes I think I need a funnel and sieve to drain all the ideas billowing out. Each area I examine where my interests are. I haven’t decided yet, what is the apple of my eye. Yet. I’m honing in on some fascinating self-discovery.
Take a look at yourself inside. I mean deep, deep inside. And, answer these questions to yourself, privately, so that only you can hear, yet spoken aloud.
What are your answers for:
* Regardless of religion, would you end up at the Pearly Gaits or hanging in between, floating ….
* Have you ever killed anything or anyone?
* Have you ever betrayed your mother or treated her unjust?
*Do you think you are selfish?
*How are you selfless?
In a quick reaction, answer the most instinctively honest that you can.
a) i am jealous of someone else?
b) i am mad at somebody else?
c) i have regrets about somebody else?
d) i know i could have tried harder but? what? ___________is your excuse?

Quora invited me to answer this question:
I’m a thinker. How can I also become a doer?
I am creative, intelligent, innovative and philosophical. But I find it incredibly hard to actually get something done.
How can I find a balance between doing and thinking? I want to become a doer.
I am both a thinker and a doer and wouldn’t say that I am more one than the other. However, I also admit that I am weakened by procrastination. Personally, I find the best way of resisting the temptation of putting off tasks is by creating a TO DO list, using tools like OUTLOOK or other relationship management systems when they are aligned with a customer.
I adopt my TO DOs with actionable items that are not vague. Take into account that broad task statements are less likely to be completed if you don’t factor that there may be steps to complete the item. Be realistic as to the timelines that it should take to accomplish the almighty check mark on being DONE.
As a thinker, you may want to start off by specifying what your desired outcome is. You can do this by framing the ultimate outcome with bullets on the steps to arrive at the final destination. For example:
|I found this to include after I wrote this article/answered question
Complete 2016 taxes (desired outcome)
1. Purchase accordion file and label according to tax filings:
- Home office (square footage divided by total square footage=percentage of expense
2. Retrieve government forms
- Update mailing address
- Employer forms (received by mail or retrieved by company HR intranet site)
- Benefits (awards, trips, recovered expenses)
3. Organize receipts by allowable expenses
- Home office
- Percentage of square footage x mortgage
- % of insurance
- % of heating
- % of electrical
- Home office telephone
- long distance expenses
- monthly fees x percentage of business use
- Track usage throughout the year:
- Beginning of the year/end of former year auto kilometer/miles
- Business trips
- Miles/km to client office from starting point
- Purpose of visit/meeting: (i.e. introduction, networking, proposal, presentation)
5. Capital expenses
- Computer purchase: financing, payments, cash outlay
- Automobile: deposit, financing, lease payments
FINITO, DONE, ACCOMPLI!
- Identify what it will mean when you have completed the task
- How will you reward yourself when you are finished?
- What reward will you reap when you are done?
Hopefully, as a thinker, you can map out what needs to be done starting with the final destination in mind and then itemize the detailed steps.
Imagine the sense of accomplishment you will have as you tackle and check off those items. You can keep editing as you go along. Keep in mind to be flexible and fluid because it isn’t unusual to have new items surface as you are drilling down to finish a task. The beauty could be a template to follow for the next year: doing the tasks as you go along and when the time is right! That would be considered being proactive!
