I wish to choose structure and routine for myself. It’s so easy for me to lose focus if I don’t build my goals into my day-to-day, into my life. I prefer the familiar and I quickly fall to my habits, so why not make good habits familiar?
Right now I’m trying to incorporate writing and learning new job skills into my routine. It’s starting to take hold, but I’m still not satisfied with the way I structure a typical day. I have ample time, but I feel like my accomplishments do not reflect that.
I think part of the problem is I haven’t clearly defined what I want to accomplish. I actually woke up this morning and realized I didn’t know what to do first, because I didn’t know what I wanted to get done. Such a silly reason to get off-track, but there it was. So tomorrow’s list:
- Spend one hour with Excel.
- Apply to three jobs.
- Attempt to speak with a guidance counselor and organize my financial aid.
- Call WA.
- Twenty minutes of yoga.
Monitor finances.So easy I was able to do it was soon as I identified the need.
- Finish first baby bootie.
- Tidy house.
- Set one appointment for new venture; if not possible, modify advertising.
While there are several individual tasks, none of them are onerous or unduly time-consuming. I can accomplish all of those things and probably several more. Routine, planning, and habit will make my life both easy and productive, provided I make the right choices.
