Recently, I've been tracking time spent on my most important creative/learning endeavors using my accounting software as a way to view the things that are important to me as business I owe myself. It's been a useful experiment.
The past few weeks have been grounding. They've helped me realize my priorities are out of alignment. Here's me trying to get back into focus.
I had lot of plans for today, but then jet lag stepped in and threw them all off. Here's me fighting back to keep my goals up.
I've often struggled to be on time to things. Here's what I've learned on how to be more punctual.
When I write my to-do list every morning, I put down everything I could to to achieve a truly terrific day's worth of work. As I go through the day, I cross off tasks, and often re-write my list several times. Each time I re-write it, I make a more accurate list of priorities. I re-focus. I get more done.
I like making resolutions. They make me feel so productive without even having to do anything. I simply resolve to do a thing, and: magic! I've accomplished so much! I feel all the warm fuzzies!
How much time do you waste avoiding tasks when you could just do them and save yourself a lot of stress? How much do you let little stress get to you?
By working ahead, I hope to create better content for readers and feel less stressed. Here's to hoping I make it happen in 2017.
I read once about a guy who wrote his first novel 250 words at a time. Every day, he sat down and wrote 250 words. At the end of a year, he had a novel. "Gee," I thought to myself. "That sounds doable."
