By some seeming miracle, I have been saved from what I anticipated to be a disastrous outcome to something I procrastinated on for years. Now, I need to finish this thing by mid-day tomorrow or, in the alternative, Thursday morning. I am not far away from being done. I skipped two meetings tonight in order to come to a Starbucks & work on this. I did work on a new development that wound up taking a long time because of a computer glitch. Then I got distracted. I now have 1.25 hours til they close. I want to focus and be highly productive (even though I'm feeling sicker & sicker with a cold that's turning nasty). Setting the intention to do this thing!
OK, I did some good work on this. However, I am feeling sicker & sicker & tireder and tireder. I need to get up early to take son to school & then volunteer at school for an hour. And then finish this project and drive an hour to meet with client & then drive an hour back & then go to a meeting & then take care of son and then get up Thursday & take son to school & submit this thing I'm working on & then drive a LONG way for a meeting & then drive a LONG way home in horrendous rush hour traffic. So, all of this is to say that it really is OK to stop now. Though maybe I should go to the car, call client, ask the questions, then drive home. OK, that's the plan.

Nice early start as DH here working too. Feeling sleepy though.
Today I have already:
Slept right through the night until 6.30 this morning which is a blessing. I am a lot better but not well yet and I feel very tired. So list:
x Up prayer and reflection
x Check emails and posts
x Make and post this list
x Think about sorting heating as one electric fire is not working
x Reply to friend's email
x Rest and think prayfully about what to do - I have rather a lot and for once feel relaxed about having a lot. Much is important or at least seems so, little if anything is urgent.
I feel tired and very irritated and can't concentrate and I want to get on with things.
Somehow I have got on with some things and I don't know how. I would like to know how as this might help me again.
Emailed charity to whom I spoke this morning
Emailed counselling service for more information
Emailed about an order to check how I'm being charged
Wrote to bank to close account
Washed up and dried up and put things away and rubbish out
Replied to posting which I thought I might this morning
Now I'm back in a resentful heap of self absorbtion.
Update 21.10 Which I have now got out of and written a letter with enclosures to Building Society to try to sort out a problem, written most of a letter about a claim for camera repair and sorted the papers some for copying tomorrow and made a shopping list. Also decided that asking a friend to help me with a project will waste both of our time and agreeing to help him with his will certainly waste mine.
So prayer and reflection and a very early night. How on earth have I got so much done?
I LOVE what your wise sister said in your post below! So true! Have a good dayxo
I admit that I am powerless over my procrastination and debt and that my life had become unmanageable. I came to believe that a Power greater than myself could restore me to sanity and I made a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God. I humbly ask God to remove my shortcomings. I pray constantly and unceasingly only for knowledge of God's will for me today and the power to carry that out.
Its not about the tasks - its about listening to the moment and going with the flow of the spirit - today and NOW.
Its not about the money, its about listening to the simplicity of need and contentment - today and NOW.
Thanks to Jalla and Mole for the mornings inspiration.

Ps-I often say the same about your starters too! Just what I needed tpo read is my usual reply!!!Thank you for everythingxoxo
How do you do it, jalla? - read my mind, I mean. I am sure that one of the prime reasons for my procrastination is the uncertainty around discerning priorities, choosing between things, sifting out the important stuff, not stressing about things that are either beyond my control, or things I do not have to deal with yet.
hang out sheets
7.30 cafe w G and C
9-12 write with poms BUT my mind is so full of other stuff, i shall dedicate the first pom and perhaps even the second to clarifying my day- eg
working out how much time I need to prepare for tomorrow's performance, from that work whether I can manage L & co this PM and if so for how long, get back to L asap to let her know.
