Today’s blogpost marks sixty days of posting daily since launching AnchoredScraps.com on February 26th. Today I’m delighted to present Anchored Actions!

On Friday I received back from the printer the initial limited run of 50-sheet Anchored Action pads.  This To-Do list is designed to drive action to the completion of items that made this list – track the big items for the week on this list, or by category per sheet, or make it for daily use.   The pad measures  4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.   There are 11 lined items on each sheet – ten for your top 10 and the 11th line is for ‘extra credit’ to give yourself an earned gold star.   If it will make you feel better you can even opt to include them in a letter you send to a friend, in fact you could get a buddy and send to each other at the end of each week to add accountability to your routine.

My Dad was a big advocate of what he called “Delayed Gratification” which underlies and drives goal setting for me. The idea being to focus on investing in our future with completing things now we may not want to do but make a difference – especially over time.

I’m amazed at  how investing  15 minutes per week to focus on prioritizing the next week’s goals makes a big difference.   Coming very soon when the AnchoredScraps.com store launches these pads will be made available.

“One of the secrets of getting more done is to make a TO DO List every day, keep it visible, and use it as a guide to action as you go through the day.” Jean de La Fontaine (French Poet, 1621-1695)

Today I want to encourage you to consider making your own list of items that are “Anchored Actions” for the coming week ahead.  Thank you for reading and participating along with me since launching 60 days ago. Here’s to the next 60!
