The Realistic Optimist TO DO List & Calendar 2019 is Perfect for Getting Organized, Making Things Happen and Being Inspired - This Tool Makes Sense for Career, Business, Education, Family, Fun and Pretty Much Everything Else In Life - SIGNED by Ray Keating

Get organized; make things happen; and get inspired throughout the year with The Realistic Optimist TO DO List & Calendar 2019. It’s a tool that makes sense for career, business, education, family, fun and pretty much everything else in life.

The Realistic Optimist TO DO List & Calendar 2019 offers a simple, systematic combination of long run, weekly and daily TO DO lists that make a real difference in getting things done. For good measure, each page includes a quote from a leader or thinker that in some way reflects being a realistic optimist – providing inspiration, giving pause to think, helping you move ahead, generating a laugh, or eliciting agreement or a roll of the eyes.

Ray Keating, who is an author, economist, columnist, website publisher/editor, podcaster, marketer and more, explains: “The realistic optimist basically learns from life’s ups and downs, while maintaining a hope and confidence in successfully setting out and achieving goals.” He adds, “I’ve become far better organized – though far from perfect – with the ‘to do’ list becoming my main planning, organizing and execution tool. The act of putting together the ‘to do’ list requires reflection on goals; forces prioritization; allows for being more realistic about time management; and generates serious thought on howto best get things done. But using the ‘to do’ list got me thinking about a more effective ‘to do’ list.” 

Keating declares, “My creating The Realistic Optimist TO DO List & Calendar 2019 was driven by meeting a need in my own life, and it followed with the realization that if I benefit from this, others might as well. I hope this becomes a handy tool in your efforts to set and achieve all sorts of goals.”

As for being a realistic optimist, Keating concludes, “The fact that you set goals, think about how to achieve those goals, and choose to seek out and use tools like The Realistic Optimist TO DO List & Calendar 2019 mean that you are a realistic optimist. Forge ahead!”

In the book’s introductory essay, Keating explains what it means to be a realistic optimist, the value of the “to do” list, why The Realistic Optimist TO DO List & Calendar 2019 will make you more productive in whatever you are looking to accomplish throughout the year, and explains the best way to use this valuable book, tool and calendar.

Consider the following from a 5-star Amazon.com review: “Obviously, I haven't actually used it yet, since it's still 2018... It's clear and simple to use, not like one of those organizers where you have to practically have a degree in how it works. I started entering things in that I know I have coming up next year, and I'm looking forward to January! I have always thought of myself as a realistic optimist, too, and I'm glad to find this resource. Also, Ray Keating's Pastor Stephen Grant books are awesome.”

CORRECTION: The Realistic Optimist TO DO List & Calendar 2019 mistakenly has Daylight Savings Time starting on March 6, when it actually begins on March 10. We apologize for this error.
