It was a damp morning and the rain just stopped pouring. I lay on my bed, almost motionless, staring at the blank canvass that is my ceiling. Sleepily, I grabbed my phone on top of my desk and with one eye still closed as the other tried to adjust into the light, I checked my messages.

One from a group of friends and one from my mother, another from a close friend and some notifications of calendar entries to remind me what I needed to do today. I stretched my arms and rubbed the sleep from my eyes.

"Oh, it's so cold!" I muttered as I crawled under my beddings. I was awoken by the snooze from the alarm and again picked up my phone to reply "good morning" to my messages. I indeed hope to have a good morning.

30 minutes later, I saw myself sitting on my desk, staring into the screen of my notebook. I was distracted by a bird that just flew past my window. It was cloudy, gloomy and does not give a sense that a good day awaits.

"Time to eat the fucking frog!" I said and started going through every checklist that I needed to do, clearing one after the other. Made calls after calls and wrote emails in between. At noon time, I found my...

One of my faves si Stolen, BV. Di ko nga maalala paano ko yan naging fave eh, basta somewhere sometime in my past naging memorable ang pakikinig ko sa kantang yan.

Hugsssss, BV ;))

Sa akin naman motorways and sad songs on a rainy day :)

Aja! Tara, kape! Ayyyy tea pala, double up ;))

Many years ago, isa din ito sa mga faves ko and nasa playlist pa rin. Not sure if napakinggan mo na yung re-recorded version nila sa Dusk and Summer album. Acoustic, I like.

Salamat sa hugs, Midz. Much needed and appreciated.

Kaya ayoko talaga ng gloomy weather, nakaka-emo.

Virtual tea (or face to face) meet up soon! xx

Eating that frog at the start of our day (or shift) gets us on the road to complete things we really want to get our hands on.

Then you can follow what your heart desires with all the time you want to do so.

Great sharing, BellaVictoria.

Indeed. I always try to complete those hard tasks first so it gets easier by the end of the day. The only issue is that if there will be new urgent tasks that will come up. Work is never ending.

Check out the Eisenhower box. That might help you prioritize. Let me know if you have questions.

Yup, I am following this too but I kind of improvised.

Top box left: Urgent
Top box right: To Do but not urgent
Lower Box Left: Personal To Do’s
Lower Box Right: Personal/Work idea dump

This helps a lot din in prioritizing tasks as it can get muddled talaga.

Sometimes, you cannot help it but you just got to fuck it.
