I seem to be immobolized.

I don't know whether my buzz piece strikes the right message for potential clients.

I really need help with my business and my goals. I keep thinking I'm really not good enough to do this.

Just keep working on list for today.

Love you all for being here!

Got one item done.

Journey 10 am

Working from home again today.   Still stressed over my current workload, and you know what that leads to, so I need to keep my focus today, prioritize, and do the most important things.  I have a million meetings today so I need to fit in some real work between meetings and not lose focus.  Here's the todo list:

  • Exercise
  • Exec meeting
  • Prepare for 1-1 meeting
  • 1-1 meeting
  • RH meeting
  • noon webcast (hopefully I can multi-task during this)
  • Team meeting
  • Project T meeting
  • Project D spreadsheet  made a good start and asked for some help getting some of the info that I can't find or figure out
  • Margaret's ACB  - fix LD instead 
  • Project O - work on combine - didn't get to this
  • dinner
  • dishes
  • feed birds
  • water plants
  • 1 load laundry - started
  • fuze
  • check balances
  • If time, get bikes out of basement
  • Read after dinner instead of zoning out on the computer
  • Prepare for tomorrow and Friday
  • If time, A. WL - worked on this a little

This is a lot, and there is more that needs to be done but won't happen today, so I will not think about those items.   One day at a time!   Breathe!

update 6:20 I did pretty well, did a little internet surfing when stressed out over that spreadsheet, tried to just remember that I'm avoiding the task because it's scary and I don't have all the information I need, so I did the best I could and asked for help.  It has to be right because it involves spending the company's money on a project!

Now I'm going to go make dinner and do a few chores around the house.   I'll see you tomorrow.

My Late Check in

Again i had problem with my PC today. But this time i fixed it permanently. I have hardly 3 or 4 hours left in my timezone for the day to end. Will finish the below listed tasks

Reasoning Problems

Comprehension Problems


Done all the tasks.Smile 

Wed 28th

I realise I'm being inconsistent and not checking in daily, or checking out when I do check in, and I can't promise that that will change: I'm just going to do my best.

  1. update blog for Uni
  2. begin writing up report which is due tomorrow
  3. get the dogs vaccinated!!!!
  4. go to theatre
  5. breathe!!!!! 

This is all wrong but I'm going to post this anyway. Vaccinating the dogs is urgent and important. The blog is doable and important. The report due in tomorrow is urgent, important and slightly scary and the thing I have the most trouble settling down to. Going to the theatre is verging on time-wasting and procrastinating, but it's a show I've been meaning to go to and it's the last chance I have to see it. Plus I've now booked tickets for me and a friend. I'm feeling really anxious about all the stuff that needs doing!!! And I'm going away for a whole week next week, abroad, and have SO MUCH to organise before I go... hence 'breathe'.... breathe, breathe, breathe, and do some things on my to do  list, starting now...
