These introductory posts are the hardest part of joining a new forum :D

I'm myy and you all know why I am here. I'm hoping to unlearn at least some of my bad habits and learn a bunch of good ones instead. I'm going to start slow since I usually write a mile long list about what I should do and then get paralyzed and go back to my chosen escapist pastime. I think list-making is actually a harmful habit for me. Making a list gives me a false feeling of accomplishment and results in no actual action. I can think a whole day about things I should be doing and never even start. Or I start so late that I'll end up working long past my bedtime which leads to waking up late etc. My life does not work. I am not happy. And I know it's all caused by my own behaviour.

Great to have you here myy!


Thanks for telling us about yourself and congratulations on taking the step of joining up!

I'm sure this group will be a real support for you - you're not alone.

Thank you

Thank you all for the warm welcome :)

This is the second day I participated in the daily Check-In thread. I only post three things I want to do. Limiting the todo-list seems to work for me. So does the checking in: I actually was excited about doing things on my todo-list for the first time since -I can't even tremember- when. And I didn't waste my evening surfing on the net. I didn't want to. I made Christmas decorations which was fun.


Welcome, thank you for sharing, you are not alone. I found what helped me was "consistency" not how fast/ slow/how much I did. The only way I got any consistency was by showing up here and the support/connection with others who "knew". I hope you keep coming back.

hi Myy!

Glad to have you here! You'll find lots of people who understand.

One thing that's I've learned here is to pick *just one* thing to work on and do that...that I don't have to catch up on all my work at once, and that I don't need to have a perfect plan or "feel ready" before I start a task. 

Welcome Myy

I have the same problem with overwhelming todo lists!  I'm learning to plan better so that I write lists that I can actually complete.
