How to get things done without trying too hard

Just finished reading this books, “How to get things done without trying too hard” by Richard Templar. This rule book is described as the wise and brilliant antidote to procrastination. It is a manual for getting more works done and it is also the best and simplest guide to enable you to find time to do all those little things which need to do, but usually could not be bothered. 

I used to put things off previously from day to day giving myself excuses such as not enough time to complete them and even wish I could have granted an hour extra every day to finish them. Still, I do not have any extra hours and the day to complete the tasks did not really arrive. The task builds up into a huge mountain which I found myself even harder to clear it in the end. I began to try some of the ways that were shared by the author in the book and I found that the methods mentioned do works on me. Taking for an example, I do not really like to iron the clothes and only do it only when it is necessary. The author taught us to visualize the complete task instead. Thinking of the fully iron clothes in the wardrobes to choose from every day with no limitation makes me feel more eagerness to iron all the clothes at once. And ironing would never be a difficult task anymore!

With his unique blend of originality, wisdom and common sense, the 100 clever, quickly, simple and pain-free ways to assist in getting more things done and complete them with the minimum of time and effort. I feel more organized; everything seems to be in my control and could even enjoy my free time peacefully without worrying that there are things which need to be done later. 🙂 



Feeling excited when my friend invited me to her wedding dinner. I was searching for a dress to wear on that day but sad to see there isn’t any dress that could suit my apple-shaped body. 😦 Time is running out and I did not have time to shop around. Online shopping could not possible to reach me in time for any last minutes shopping.

Just as I was about to give up, the image of a black coloured dress that I wore when I was pregnant time suddenly flashes in my memory. I went on searching and, finally, I found it! Without any delayed, I put it on and found that it was just too lengthy on me. Oh no! I’m really looked like I’m expecting again!

I decided to change to a more desire length. Instead of cutting it short, I decided to sew some gathers at the sides of dress. It not only could shorten the length but also could create a more dreamy look with the outer lace on it. Not only that, it could also able to hide my flaws as now it draw the attention to my sides rather than my tummy! :p

The book that I would like to share today is ‘Happiness Now’ by Andrew Matthews. There are lots of books out there written on the similar topics on how to be happy and stop worrying. This book attracts me as it is short like the summarise version. What I like the most about the book is it has insert many cartoons in it to make the book more interesting and is more easier to interpret of what it says. It really meant for busy people to read!

This book is about balancing relationships, finding career success,prosperity and peace of mind. The author started off to explain the everyday philosophy on what individuals choose to believe about everyday stuffs in 2 kinds, Academic or Everyday personal kind. Then he went to give some pointers on how to be happy even when the life get tough or things went beyond our control. He elaborate the states the law of life and further points out how to maintain a happy relationships with the people that surround you.

My thought for this book is excellent! It teaches to change the attitude, character and mentality on how to be a happier person. Sometimes when things get tough or does not went smoothly as what you want or expected, don’t feel dishearted. Think positively will make you a happier person. I do note down some of the pointers from the book which I think is a great lesson for me to recap in future especially when feeling down. It enable me to think positively and be a happier person. It also guided me to find my way to happiness path by starting to write this blog. And it is a pleasure for me to share with you such a great book!
