Reaching out

Just joined the site. After months of searching, I've finally found some folks who's brains sound just like mine. I always lurk and never post; here I feel like I can post, now that's saying something ;)

I spent the entire day at work on Friday and did absolutely nothing. Today hasn't been going much better although I successfully started a project that I've been putting off because I thought it would be more involved. It turned out to only take a few minutes :P I realized after reading some other comments about overestimating project time, this is probably my biggest hangup. I don't start things because I always think they will take longer than I'm willing to give them today. Therefore, I never get started on anything. Meanwhile, my lists of have-to's and want-to's continue to grow into the realm of dramatic overwhelm.


I certainly can relate to what you describe! You are among friends here. Try bookending. This has been very helpful to me and others.

Hi 1Focus

Welcome! Have a look around, and have a read of the articles. We have a daily thread over in the Bookending section (the article will tell you what 'bookending' is) - if you fancy trying it out please do join us there. Quite a few of us are finding it very effective.
