You have some really good ideas about doing things you really would like to do. I LOVE to write and I have a goal to work on my memoirs to hand down to the future. But I keep stalling--I spend entirely too much time on e-mails, giving my political opinions on one site, and of course I like to participate in SP and spend a lot of time here. But I know there is more to life. I don't want to give up my exercise, but I do want to get more involved in getting my writing done.
I suppose I just need to dedicate a time of day and set that aside as the only thing I do for an hour or so on certain days or every day.. I'm retired so I have the time, if I just budget the time well. I have depression, anxiety, and tardive kinesia as part of the reason it is hard for me to strive to meet goals and do things I really want to do. However, I don't want these conditions to rule my life. I want to get back in charge. Started today making list of things I need to do tomorrow and will check them off as I get them accomplished. I wonder if I recorded these somewhere--like in my daily journal on SP if that would help me be able to look back and see that I DID make progress each day. What do you think? Does this sound like it would help me? Or I just now thought of another idea--buy a special notebook to write the checklist in and just keep the notebook. Then I'd only have to have my list in one place; it would be easy to scan the pages when I get discouraged just to see that I am making progress. I think that's what I'll do. Yep, I really like that idea. If anyone has other ideas that might help keep me motivated and actually involved in what I would LOVE to do--my writing, I'm sure open to suggestions.
