> From a nurse:
> I'll never forget the look in my patients' eyes when

> begging the Doctors to keep these women in the

> there I sat with my patients, giving them the
> instructions they needed to
> take care of themselves, knowing full well they
> didn't grasp half of what I
> was saying, because the glazed, hopeless, frightened
> look spoke louder than
> the quiet 'Thank You' they muttered. A mastectomy is
> when a woman's breast
> is removed in order to remove cancerous breast
> cells/tissue. If you know
> anyone who has had a Mastectomy, you may know that
> there is a lot of

If you're receiving this, it's because I think you
will take the 30 seconds
to vote on this issue and send it on to others you
know who will do the same
There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient
Protection Act which will
require insurance companies to cover a minimum
48-hour hospital stay for
patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about
eliminating the 'drive-through'
Mastectomy where women are forced to go home just a
few hours after surgery,
against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy
from anesthesia and
sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their Web
page with a petition
drive to show support. Last year over half the House
signed on. PLEASE!!
Sign the petition by going to the web site below.
You need not give more
than your name, state, and zip code

Best of the Time Management Experts

I've been reading these tips for quite a few years now and for whatever reason, the thought just came to me that others may be interested in them as well. I mean, I always posted some of his newer works on my main site but I just didn't think about blogging about it till today. So, I figure, maybe what I'll do is pick out an expert from a specific field every now and then and blog about him or her. Donald is definitely the best in this particular field. I research the web for only the greatest. Sign up for his newsletter. You won't be sorry. Oh and by the way, no, I'm not an affiliate and don't make any money on you. As a matter of fact, I never met the man in person. I'm just trying to make your research time online a little bit easier. So, here's his latest article. Tell me what you think.

I have spent most of the last twenty years researching, studying, writing and speaking about Time Management and Personal Productivity. I have learned a whole lot and my full-time mission now is to share that knowledge through my writings, seminars, consulting and keynotes with people who want to get more done in less time in their business and personal lives.
One important lesson I learned is that there are three simple, yet powerful Time Management Secrets. Knowing these will go a long way to helping you to better manage your time each and every day and get more done in less time and with less stress.
We all have too much to do. Almost everyone I speak with tells me they have more to do than time permits. This says a lot of good things about you. That you have too much to do means many have entrusted a lot to you. People who seldom have enough to keep them busy and are always looking for things to do may not have earned this level of confidence from others.
There is never enough time for everything. If you have too much to do, by definition, you will not have enough time for everything. In fact you will only accomplish but a tiny fraction of what you will want to accomplish in your lifetime. You will leave undone far more than you ever get done in this world. Your life is going to be like a sandy beach. Take one grain of sand and let that represent all that you accomplish in your lifetime. The other billions of grains of sand will represent all of the other things you might have done.
While there’s never enough time for everything, there’s always enough time for the important things.
Early in our marriage, my wife and I were both working, our social life was packed and we didn’t seem to have a spare five-minute block of time in our days. Soon we were to receive our first daughter and a few weeks before she came to us my wife and I were agonizing over how to find the time to take care of this new addition to our family. Babies, they take a lot of time!
But what happened? Jennifer came along and we made the time for her. Did we still have a social life? Sure, but it was different.
Three years later, our second child Pam arrived, and once again, we found the time to attend to this new responsibility and still have time for other things.
While there is never time for everything, there always seems to be time for the most important things in life. “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
But you don’t have to wait until circumstances come upon you forcing you to attend to the most important things in your life. You can do it now. Each day in Daily Planning, identify the most important things you want to get done in your day. Place a high priority of those items and leave undone the less important things.
You won’t get it all done but you will get the most important things done.
The secret’s finally out.
