Welcome to Friday
It's 2:15. Been looking at the internet and stuff. Need to focus on the priority.
Better late than never: I am committing to 45 minutes of work on my dissertation (however tangentially). Will be checking back in in 45.
Hello to you all and thank you for being here on this thread with me! Just reading your posts helped me.
It consisted of removing post-its from two library books and putting them in two copies I just bought. Still. It's progress.
I did "write" for 15 minutes. I took a friend's advice and tried to "write the block" because I didn't feel ready to actually write my dissertation. I know that will have to change. But, "for today" . . . I am done with that.
Now I am going to go out and enjoy the (beautiful!) day -- or some such.
Thanks to all who post here.
Good for you for committing to 15 minutes and sticking to it. It might sound like a small thing, but it's not!! :)

In the past ten minutes, I've gone to the bathroom, checked my email (AGAIN) and looked for a used book.
None of these things are on my list.
Refocusing yet again.

landlords file I would like to get this up to date

Still working on Landlord's file and making progress. I'm now having a break as I'm tempted to time binge on it and I do want to finish the work.
Still working on landlord's file and making progress. I have taken breaks and rested.
Stopped work on landlord's file shortly after last posting and put stuff away. Then felt confused as I wanted to work on it into the evening and I am told that this is not a good way of going about things
Regards a puzzled Rexroth
when you say "I am told this is not a good way of going about things"?
Do you mean that if you continue to work on the file you might be "time binging"?
One suggestion is to talk to your Higher Power (whatever that is for you) and ask whether you want to continue working on the folder because you have the time and energy and it is a higher priority than anything else you'd be doing now -- i.e. "why not?" OR whether you want to continue working because you want to get this thing done at all costs (even if it throws your sleep schedule and other stuff out of whack), i.e. whether you've become fixated on it.
Yep Nan, time binging was exactly what I meant and I feel glad I stopped and did other things. The work is important but not urgent as I have at least two weeks to finish it.
And so to bed
