Coming out of a funk is always a good thing. I’m feeling much better but now I need to catch up on the stuff that wasn’t getting done while I was in a funk.
The filing, getting stuff back in order, eating right, back into a routine of exercising and writing.
My problem is that now I’m not in a funk muddle I’m in an overly ambitious muddle. I want to do too many things at once. I start something and get distracted by something else I need to do and then get distracted again and again and again. Pretty soon I’ve started a dozen things and completed nothing. Then I get confused as to what to finish and run in circles. I end up with piles all over, nothing where it should be. When the dog is here he gets tired just watching me.
I need to spray paint “ONE THING AT A TIME” on my wall. With partially completed tasks all around me I finally sat down and made a list, then I numbered the list. Things are getting done. Dishes…. check Laundry….. check Mail opened, organized and filed …. check
Things are coming together and once I’m caught up it gets easier. I have a plan by the end of the weekend I should be back on track and then I can just fall into a routine. Stop running in circles and making random piles and be able to focus more on the writing and bike riding.
One thing at a time and a plan, that’s what I need to remember.
