Sometimes, I let the inner cacophony block me from getting things done. Often that little weevil masquerades as confusion.
My mind wanders and eventually I give in to procrastination. I imagine confusion is just another way to procrastinate. At the end of the day nothing has been done and I am left feeling sad I could'nt accomplish what I wanted.
I'm afraid I do have a bit of a problem concentrating. I'm like a dog chasing a squirrel who sees something shiny and wants to chase that too. Wanting both the car and the shiny thing, the dog sits in the middle of the road until the danger of an oncoming bus stirs it from it's inertia.
I've read about how to cure or at least deal with procrastination. Making lists, setting a specific time aside to accomplish a task, don't get distracted by the internet.
All of those suggestions are rubbish is you can't keep a promise to yourself.
It all comes down to keeping a promise to yourself. If you write something on the list you have to commit to doing it.
I suppose it comes down to how much value you put on your time and what you want to accomplish.
In the past I've found that if I:
1. write it down it things more likely to get done..
2. review my list I know what needs to happen.
3. I know where I'm heading the tasks take on more purpose.
I try to keep these things in mind but it is a constant struggle.
But, really, in the end - if you can't keep a promise to yourself you won't accomplish a thing.
Luckily, I know people who are very helpful and keep me on track.
We're on the move again. Just set to jet off to England. I am looking forward to a festive Christmas and a Happy New Year.
