Task It Tuesday {4/12/16}

Posted April 12th, 2016 by in Task It Tuesday / 6 comments


I’ve learned a few things in the last few months about myself. You’d think at 31 that wouldn’t be a thing anymore but they always say you learn something new daily. I love to make lists. I do it all the time. I make lists at home, I make lists at work, I make bookish lists, my list game can go for days. My follow through though? Not so great.

I’ve learned that I like to have big picture goals but totally suck at executing them. I typically jump right in and just sort out the rest later. I’m learning things about myself though. *evil cackles*

My long term goals are the following:
      Finish my ebook purchases spreadsheet
      Create/update(?) my books read spreadsheet
      Get my 3 (yes 3!) GoodReads wish lists combined down to one
      Sync my Goodreads shelves to one wish list on Amazon
      Delete my GoodReads shelves (with the exception of my read and wish list shelves)
      Put my ebooks into GoodReads
      Put my physical books into GoodReads
      Create a “Physical Books” wish list on Amazon simultaneously with GoodReads
      Get reviews done for UBB
      Reformat old posts with new graphics
      Fix all broken links

This is a huge list and it will absolutely be time consuming but this isn’t something that I feel I’ll have done within a few months. This is going to be, I’m sure, a years long project. I’m going to keep this in each Task It Tuesday so I can see the progress I’ve made.

This week I’m hoping to accomplish the following:

Daily Tasks:
  1. Empty spam folder
  2. Fix 5 broken links
  3. Empty Feedly (hopefully by actually commenting on my Saved posts!)
  4. Update my GoodReads reading status
Weekly Tasks:
  1. Add 2014 ebook purchases to spreadsheet
  2. Add 2015 ebook purchases to spreadsheet

    Sounds like you are well on your way to getting organized. I have kept my Goodreads shelf to read and want to read for a long time and it makes things so much easier. I rarely buy any books anymore because I seldom have tie to read them, as I am always drowning in ARCs. I hope you do well with your goals.

      Fingers crossed I stay that way! I need to find a way to keep my GoodReads organized. It is nothing short of chaos right now. 🙂

      I’m hoping it takes less time too! I will work on things as I want to but set small goals so that a little is getting done each week. I want to see progress and I know that’ll only happen if I can see short term goals and progress.

      I totally burnt out! I got SO into the spreadsheet that I finished the whole thing in a few days and then completed my read spreadsheet as well! o.O Hoping to be back this week!
