NOW NOW NOW is a project by Derek Sivers – This page was inspired by Derek’s Project. I was inspired to join in after seeing him speak in 2015 at the World Domination Summit. 

How It Works

Full details can be found on the NOW NOW NOW page. In short you create a list of what you are currently working on. Then send this link to the NOW NOW NOW page. You are then added to a list of hundreds of others  sharing what they are working on.

Why I added Dreams & Memories

I’ve participated by having a NOW page for nearly 5 years. But, for me, something was missing. So I decided to added my Dreams and Done It Sections. 

“Dreams” because we need to remember what we aspire for in life. “Memories” because we don’t give ourselves enough credit for what we accomplish. We shouldn’t live in the past. But, we can be hard on ourselves. It’s important to give ourselves credit for where we’ve been and what we’ve done. Especially when we are feeling stuck.

The items that swim around in my head. They distract me from my NOW NOW NOW list. Occasionally, they move up to my NOW NOW NOW list. But they are always worth remembering.
