This is a little of what I feel like lately. I keep telling myself that one thing about having a To-Do list that looks like the national debt is that I have such a wide choice of what jobs, tasks, and/or projects I want to work on. Yeah like over 50% of them I don’t want to work on at all.
Lately with buying another home, we closed on the 4th of this month, I have added even more tasks. But it will make moving from this one easier as I can move slowly into the Jubilee one.
Easier, smeasier, I still have way to much to do. And, this morning I woke up still feeling tired and decided, ENOUGH. Unlike the other big resource, money, everyone has the same amount of time. 24/7 is all anyone gets, not a minute more or a minute less. So with new resolve I climbed out of bed and immediately started the washing. No lingering over a book and coffee. But wait, this isn’t what I want life to be. I WANT, no NEED that lingering over whatever.
Now I’ve reached this point a number of times in life. So one more time I’m putting on my Time-Management hat and digging out. I’m going to use the old money management routine in getting the smaller jobs done first. Then applying that time to the next tasks. I’ll break down some of the bigger projects into manageable pieces.
And this time when I claim back ME-Time I’m going to hang on to it. I have a friend that is still working and swears when she retires she’s not going to take lessons from me.
Okay before I start bemoaning the fact that as busy as I am I should be thin as a rail I’m going to get off this post. If anyone has any suggestions or advice please let me know as this time I’ve really dug a hole and will need all the help I can get to dig out.
