I have a lot of projects on the go. Fun projects, work projects, fun work projects.
There are a lot of things I have to do, and a lot of things I think about doing, things I woul like to try to do. I keep lists of things I want or need to get done. I fill notebooks with events and needs and thoughts and stories. Sometimes I get the things on my list done easily and quickly. Sometimes I have no problems concentrating.
Sometimes I waste time when I could be getting things done and ignore things I should be doing to get some of those items checked off my list.
Sometimes I feel guilty for sitting in front of the TV playing Diamond Dash instead of doing anything else. Sometimes I don’t.
I feel like I am in a place in my life where I need to work better. I have so many varied interests and I’m pretty good at keeping all my thoughts and things organized, but I have to remind myself things actually need to be done. I need to sit at my desk sometimes. I need to turn off the noise and read articles, do research, edit my own work.
I need to make sure that all the projects I love to think about see some progress so I’m not disappointed in myself when I look at all my lists later this week, month or year.
I need to take my opportunities for time and space to work.
How do you organize your time when you have a number of things on your plate?
