Welcome to Wednesday.

pro's CI - 10:45pm

I'm late getting ready for bed because my brother has been nagging me to do something and I spent time working on it - which I shouldn't have done because he's a bossy bully and I should have not done it just because he was trying to force me. :(

Anyway, I need to get to bed now - no dallying. I've got to start getting to work earlier.

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

45 minutes of work

Hi everyone.  *thanks her HP for this forum*

I need to do 45 minutes of work in the next 45 minutes.  Then I am scheduled to go shopping with a friend.  I always say I'll do the work when I get back -- but we know how that can go.

Okay.  I'll be back in 45 mins.  Timer's going on. . .


Okay, I did it!  Had to ignore two calls.  That's going to have to become a way of life for me, I think.  Reading these posts, I am getting really scared.  I totally see how I have used "time management" tools themselves as just another way to procrastinate.  I keep lists of EVERYTHING:  movies I've seen, every piece of clothing I own, etc.  It's just more obsession. 

Anyway, this is my bookend.  I read/took notes for 45 minutes.  Now get to go out and "play"/do something different.

Wishing you all a great day.

Keeping track of time

I appreciate your post. Sometimes I take too much time planning before and critiqueing afterwards. Someone once said "the plan shouldn't take longer than the task". Also, isn't it maddening to not become detoured when we're on task? "If I answered or make this phone call, or ask just this one question, or I'll just relax for five minutes before doing dishes" Argh. Good luck.

The weather here has been beastly hot and humid. so any type of progress is slow: paper is mushy, glue and paint barely dry, laundry "ferments" in hours, and everyone's perspiring like mad. Nevertheless, I'd rather have this than bitter cold, like last Winter. Hmm, complaining is a very popular form of procrastination, isn't it? Today really has to "work" here, so things aren't bound up by week's end. Several small things merely need to be done, and I haven't done them. I can use some positive thoughts folks!
To do:
 (X)morning routine
(X) spiritual time
 (X)get dishes done
 vacuum rug
(X) finish section of work project A
 (better) clean kitchen table well
(X) get work project B ready for other business
 (working on it) clean out my car (really bad)
(better) clean up workshop for half hour
 visit ill relative and take paperwork
