hiring an assistant to help with backlog
The "getting up early" idea hasn't been working because I've been having problems sleeping. I've been waking up at night, unable to get back to sleep until just before I'm supposed to get up.
I simply must handle my back accounting and file my back tax returns. So I'm going to try something else - and keep trying new things until I'm able to solve the problem.
I've had this idea before, but now I'm really going to do it. I'm going to hire someone to help me. This person will enter data in Microsoft Money while I do sorting, filing, and other things. Or vice versa. I'm looking to hire someone for 8 hours a week - 4 hours on Saturday, 4 hours on Sunday. I've already started looking for someone - talked to someone who might know people, and will call someplace later to list the job.
Just as hiring a trainer gets me to the gym when I'd never do it otherwise, hiring an assistant will help me to get things done that I never would/could otherwise. I simply need help. I've been struggling for years with this, and I'm not making progress. Apparently I can't do this alone, and the kind of help I need isn't meeting with a coach once a week. I need someone here helping me and talking me through stuff while I work.
Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.
