Back in early July, I pledged to step out of the electronic world more often and "live in my space." I spilled my thoughts in my last blog on how I spend way too much time scrolling, tapping, clicking…on favorites apps or websites, and for that matter not even doing anything PRODUCTIVE with these devices like backing up hard drives, organizing digital photos, learning or reading something new…etc.
Reading over the last blog, I realized there were a lot of things that I said to encourage myself, that I FORGOT! It also helped to re-read the friendly, supportive comments…so this led to another thought that perhaps I should re-read some of my other, older blogs for more inspiration to
Long story short, my goals to spend 10 minutes in the kitchen, 10 minutes on paper clutter, AND 10 minutes on a wild card project each DAY were a bit too ambitious for all the demands on my time right now.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up. Organizing my thoughts to set those goals definitely helped conquer a few time and space takers, but I need to try a different way to get more this consistent!!!
So now I am going to make a point to rotate days on the kitchen, the paper clutter, and the wild card project. Since the “10 minutes” became more of a kick-start to get working and making progress in one of these areas, this readjustment will grant the freedom to not have to stop and start again with only 10 minutes to work with on something else.
I am also thinking of tracking the days where I can work on more than one of my 3 focus areas, finding some way to reward myself with a free pass day here and there, or a spark goody, or maybe even a small online shopping indulgence.
