At Sunapee View Bed and Breakfast, we are pleased to say that we work hard to ensure your room has been thouroughly cleaned following each guest. We all become a little squirmy when we see the news clips of high end hotels and lodging facillities where some pretty yucky stuff has been detected on bed spreads and other items in a room that looks clean to the eye. At our inn, following each stay, quilts, blankets and pillow shams are all laundered. Every surface including TV controls, drawer pulls and door handles are wiped down with a sanitizing solution. For your health and peace of mind, we keep it clean at Sunapee View Bed and Breakfast!

George and Linda,

Your attention to detail and your tasteful decorating skills made our stay so comfortable, charmingly welcoming and entirely warm. The view from our room was spectacular! We so appreciated the delicious cookies for our afternoon treat-again, it was the simple thoughtfulness that made this trip so endearing for us. Thank you for taking such good care of us! We will visit again soon,

Diane and Mike

Our late summer raspberries are still sweet and prolific-enough for us and to share with the birds! Here is a recipe for some muffins that many of our guests have enjoyed munching on this summer:

Mix together: 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 stick melted butter

Add 1 egg and 1/2 cup buttermilk

Quickly mix in dry ingredients: 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon

stir  in: zest of a lemon, 1 1/4 cup fresh raspberries

place in 12 lined muffin tins

top each with struessel topping: mix 1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans are nice), 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1 tsp lemon zest, 2 T melted butter-mix together until crumbly

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Cool slightly and drizzle with a glaze of 1/2 cup confectioners sugar and 1 T lemon juice.

YUM!

From our windows today, we could see snow being made on Mt Sunapee. Ski season is almost here, and for five years, Mt Sunapee has been voted to have the best ski conditions in the East. Check out our Ski and Stay package and picture yourself with a glass of wine by the fire after a fun day on the slopes.

Managing Distractions

Oftentimes I’m working on something when I get distracted — the phone rings, an instant message appears, I notice a new email — and then I completely forget what I was working on. I’ll get off the phone and decide to check email. Before long I’m off doing something else with the original task left hanging. Many people call this “multi-tasking” but most of us know that there are very few things we can really do at the same time. I can walk on the treadmill and read email at the same time, but I can’t talk on the phone and write an article at the same time.

I’m not disciplined enough to follow strict rules of checking email only twice a day or turning off my phone. But I can go back (after I’m no longer distracted) and see the task I was working on previously.

A feature that helps me is a TIMER, it helps me to stay on task when my mind starts to wander and I want to do something else. Click the timer button and it keeps the clock running for the time spent on that task. Knowing that before I switch tasks I have to stop the timer button actually gives me incentive to just finish what I’m doing. That one small barrier is enough to prevent the impulse to check email until I’ve completed the task at hand.

Scheduling Your Time

Time scheduling helps me manage my time by using the timer (which tells me exactly how long I’ve spent on a task) and the time estimation I can include for each task (to get a handle of what I can expect to accomplish in one day). Sometimes a day passes by and I wonder what I did all day. With the timer function, I can see exactly where all my hours went, and it does make me feel better to know that I actually didn’t spend all day on emails, phone calls..etc. It also helps me see where or what I may be spending way too much of my time on.

Being able to see how long a task will take also helps me plan my day. If I’m just going down a list of items, I might think I can complete 10 things. But taking into consideration the time it’ll take for each task will keep my expectations realistic. If there’s a big project I need to slot most of the day to, I might only accomplish 3 things that day, but it still would have been a full day of working.

Next Week –  Setting Goals and Establishing a Routine

Enjoy Your Week

Establish a Routine

Don’t get stuck figuring out over and over again how to do the same task. Having good documentation is time consuming, but it’s essential to have step-by-step instructions for tasks that are extremely detailed and prone to error. Otherwise you’ll end up correcting the same mistakes. Make sure to keep this in an easily accessible place or you’ll forget or be too lazy to reach for it when starting the task. You’ll also find this handy when it’s time to pass this task to someone else.

Goal Setting

A To-Do-List allows you to set goals, and assign tasks to those goals. Setting specific tasks to goals   ensures that you keep your eye on the ball. You can look at your next steps and see how far you’ve come. Once tasks are assigned to specific goals it creates a chain display that shows the number of tasks completed for each goal, as well as the goal’s chain. The chain gets longer for each consecutive day that a completed task contributes to the goal. Make progress on a goal each day to get a long chain. Miss a day and that chain will get broken.

It’s important to see beyond the task list at the bigger picture and know that checking off the tasks brings you another step closer to your goals.
