Prioritize? Yeah right.
Friday, April 13, 2012
It's been a while since I have posted. What's up with that? It's not like time is an issue. I am retired after all so it seems perfectly reasonable that I should have time to sit down and write a short post everyday. So lets see, when I'm not sitting in my rocking chair and dozing off, what the heck am I doing with my time? Let's see, running, Spinning, kick boxing, Insanity workouts, quilting, jewelry making, reading, photography, lifting weights, cooking, cleaning house, playing Facebook games (Castleville, Cityville, Farmville and Slingo), Facebook, paying bills - see what I mean, I have plenty of time! In all fairness, I really think that God should give me a break and extend my day by about 10 hrs. Is that so much to ask? I can hear some of you thinking (your keyboards are bugged with mind reading software), he just needs to prioritize his time. Ok, point taken, I have tried that and it just doesn't stick. I have tried every organizing, calendaring, memoing system there is and I still lose focus and lose the motivation to prioritize. Don't laugh, many of you know EXACTLY what I am talking about. So I struggle on, knowing that I need to be more organized so that I can take care of the important things. That would be so easy except that the first step is determing exactly what the most important things are, in other words, prioritizing! Add to the mix that I have a lot of projects that I need to do to keep my home livable for my family. Little projects, big projects, all in the "thinking about" stage and very little progress being made towards actually doing them. In my defense, I have installed a couple of sinks, done some planting and general landscaping stuff and kept up with the little things that go wrong around the house. So ok, I need to re-organize. So here I sit at Starbucks talking about it, guess I had better get started at actually doing it. Any suggestions?
