November Updates

Memo Collective

Holy moly... it's November already.

Can you believe it? 7 more weeks till Christmas and then it's a whole new year. Wow. Am I the only one that's having a hard time grasping how fast time is flying here?

Okay well, snapping back to the here and now, Abe here making a debut on this blog! So far this month, we've had the joy of experiencing a couple of things:

Jason and Joan

Joan's awesome bridesmaids decided to surprise Joan and Jason (her husband to be) with a booking for an engagement photoshoot! With the help of our lovely friend Hanna (thank you!), we all went to Downtown Fullerton and snapped away. Here are a few pics from their session. The rest can be seen clicking the link above! :)

Business Cards

Yup... we finally got them! After months and months (and maybe even a year) of prodding from friends and clients, we decided to just get it done. It's so silly now that I think about it, but we seriously had the hardest time getting around to it.

I read a quote the other day which goes like this:

If you want to make an easy job seem hard, just keep putting it off.

And that's the story of our business cards and sometimes, a lot of other things in life too. It's so easy to put off something thinking you'll just get around to it, but the days begin to pass and you continue to feel this unnecessary weight and burden of a task that could've been taken care of with an hour or two of dedicated thought and work.

So (sorry, a little detour from our blog post here) I've decided to try to follow a piece of advice I stumbled upon while reading about how to be on top of deadlines. The rule is this:

If a task takes less than two minutes to do, I must do it immediately.

That usually translates to tasks like emails, immediately washing a dish after using it, hanging up the clothes, making the bed, etc.

All deceivingly small tasks, yes, but a little folding of hands and these tasks become exponentially harder to do with each passing hour. Emails pile up as do the dishes. The room becomes a mess and oddly enough for me, the condition of my room usually indicates how well I'm holding up in life.

The funny thing is, whipping out these small tasks helps me kickstart onto the bigger, more daunting tasks, such as editing wedding videos. It's kind of like shooting around before starting a basketball game. Mentally, seeing the ball go in the hoop even at a short range, helps me loosen up and just play.

All this to say, it's important to stay on top of the small things because they put you in a good position to work out the big, important things. Anyways, that's all for this post! Thanks for reading and we hope everyone enjoys the last few beautiful months of 2015 :)
