    If "procrastinator" isn't my middle name, it's only be

    If "procrastinator" isn't my middle name, it's only because my parents didn't want to embarrass me. I am a strange hybrid--a creative
    person who is also a type A++ personality. I do not perform at my best without some sort of structure. When I left graduate school for the
     life of a freelance writer, I found myself drowning in "free" time with little sense of how to reach my ever-growing (because I never actually
     reached one and got to cross it off!) list of goals. It took me years to develop the discipline and solid work habit that came to me so
     naturally as a student.

    MANAGE YOUR DAY-TO-DAY isn't a long or exhaustive exploration of time management and life balance. It's a tiny, targeted little primer
     full of good advice on building a solid work routine, focusing creative energy, surviving constant connectivity, and generating new ideas.
    Each section includes short articles by working artists and contemporary thought leaders that get straight to the meat of the given topic
    such as Harnessing the Power of Frequency, Making Room for Solitude, Learning to Create Amid Chaos, and Using Social Media
    Mindfully. At the end of each section is are specific "Key Takeaways"--action steps the reader can take NOW to improve his or her
    day-to-day.

    What's great about such a little dynamo of a book, is that I can revisit it whenever I feel my old habits (or lack thereof) sneaking up
    on me. The result is immediate and relatively painless course correction. The way I see it, the only people who won't profit from this
    book are the producers and stars of reality television. I know my viewing hours of popcorn television have gone down...and my writing
    output has gone way up!
