I've had a lot of trouble getting in here lately. I have a million and a half unwritten posts in my head - updates about Mikey, Mikey's 1st Birthday, the house, work, working out - all those goals for 2010. But, the last few weeks, my time management skills have been just plain terrible. I can't seem to hustle enough to get the smallest of goals accomplished. What is really infuriating is the time wasters that I allow myself to get involved in. Now that my PC is back and running on Windows 7 (Love it!) I should be restocking my music collection, uploading pictures, and keeping up with all my favorite blogs, but I can't seem to drag myself off the couch after work to get to the computer, let alone to the gym.
For awhile there I was using a daily "to do" scratch pad where I just allowed everything in my brain to spill out onto the paper - whatever was on my mind was written down. Almost like a brain stormed rough draft of the internal to do list in my head, on paper. It really helped to empty my mind and allowed me to focus on the most important things I wanted to accomplish. I ran out of the templates, and if I can find where I got them, I'll print out some more.
The first thing I'm going to write down? Get my music collection back up and running, and my Zune loaded up with great playlists for the gym!
The second thing? Look at your blogs so I can find out what you are all up to!
Sorry for sucking.
