So, guess what my newest writing gig is? You're never going to guess.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES FOR A TIME MANAGEMENT APP.
No, seriously. For real. Quit laughing.
When I was originally approached about it, I was intrigued but concerned.
"Have you actually read my blog?" I asked before committing. "I'm not exactly...motivational. Or managing my time well." (Which was probably already indicated to them by my slow response time.)
I'm not my own best endorsement, in case you hadn't picked up on that.
They knew. They didn't care. They liked me anyway. They said they knew what they were getting into and that I was allowed to be funny. The other contributors are all super duper inspirational and on top of their game so I guess they had room to risk it.
And that's how I became a contributor for the new Whytime App! They featured information from an interview with me on their website and I think it's the fanciest thing that is about me on the whole wide internet--you can see it here.
(I took that photograph using my camera's self-timer in my backyard. If you ever need an exercise in humility, there's your assignment. I think this is the second time ever I've shared a picture of myself here.)
But enough about me. Even more delightful than all of the flattery, the app and I are a perfect match. Well, the app and the Woman I Want to Be are, and her and I have a date to meet back up one of these days here soon. Anyone who has been reading for a while knows that I love a new life plan but I have commitment issues. My favorite part of a new plan is making the lists and checking the boxes but then I get overwhelmed with all of that stuff to do and feel defeated, which leads to me doing even less. It's exhausting to be this unproductive.
The best thing about the Whytime App is that it focuses on making time for yourself a priority--so you get all of the joy of an accomplished to do list along with the pleasure of scheduling a promise to take care of yourself and actually following through with it. The way I look at it, at least I would get the "me" stuff done and then every to do list would seem slightly more complete, and maybe I'll be more eager to actually consult my to-do list if there are things I want to do on it.
The whole app is very streamlined, smart, simple and satisfying. You can find it here on itunes.
We're also going to give one away, so enter below! You can enter 3 different ways, but you don't have to.

I have fallen off of the cleaning/organizing/scheduling wagon lately and I'm hoping this will be the tool that helps me get everything back together.
