How I get direction throughout my day

Last August, a friend shared a tip he had heard from a productivity course he was taking.

It was quite simple: set goals at the beginning of the day in a diary. At the end of the day, review them and see how you did. Do this everyday.

Often times, we read a book cover to cover and don’t implement anything from it. That’s a waste and I decided not to waste this tip. I didn’t need to watch a video, take a course, read a whole book. It was one simple tip and I decided to digest and use it.

Now, how do I know it was last August?! I simply went to my diary software and looked up when I started typing “Goals:” at the very top. Here’s the entry for that day:

I started thinking about this process these past few days because I stopped setting these goals. What happened is really not unexpected. I started working on tasks that weren’t the top priority. Often, I had no clue what I was supposed to work on.

I’m sharing this tip with you because I believe it has the power to change your personal life and your business this year.

As for me, it’ll help me build these features for Zip Recipes in the near future:

  • Nutritional info label
  • Save Recipes button for Yummly (let me know if you want a Save Recipes button for another service)
  • Integrate WP Search to search for recipe ingredients, instructions, etc.


If your license is activated, you should be able to update from the WordPress plugins dashboard. If this doesn’t work, there’s probably a configuration issue on your server. We’ve listed several of the most common causes.

Sure! Just go to your account, then click “view licenses”, then “view upgrade”. There you have options to pay the additional amount.

The download link you received in the initial e-mail is valid for 24 hours. After the link has expired you can log in to your ZIP Recipes account to download the plugin again. When logged in to your account you will see a section “your purchases”. 

Clicking on the ‘View Details and Downloads’ button will take you to a new page. On this new page scroll down to locate the ‘Products’ section. In the products section you can click on the plugin hyperlink to download the plugin.

To install the plugin, you can follow these instructions on Really Simple SSL

When you purchase one of our plugins an account is created automatically. You can reset your password here

If you don’t remember the email you used for the purchase, or did the purchase before the automatic account creation was activated, please contact us and we’ll set it up for you. 

You can create a new password via the following link:

When getting a ‘this email is not authorized to renew license’ error, try clearing cookies from your browser. That will likely solve the issue.

If you click the download link after you have purchased a plugin, you should download a zipped file which you can upload to WordPress. If this is not the case, you are probably using Safari. This is easy to fix. Go to:

Safari > Preferences > General > Open “safe” files after downloading: uncheck.
