My plan of attack is a little different this year. Generally I have a tendency to just jump into getting the house cleaned and organized. Start some projects I have been wanting to do. And well, a gazillion other things. I have all this “Fresh Start” mentality and leap in with both feet.
Guess what happens? I burn out quickly. I have a ton of things started and very few finished. I want everything done at once! And instead of focusing on one thing or area at a time, I feel the strong need to multi-task. I want EVERYTHING done NOW! There is a time and place to multi-task. We are women after all and have been multi-tasking since he beginning of time, way before multi-tasking was a known term.
Yes, I can have laundry going and dinner in the crockpot and then devote my time and energy to one specific project to work on. What I can’t let myself do is jump into several projects at one time while dinner is cooking and laundry going.
Does this sound a little familiar to you? Want to join me in organizing and really getting things done?
This week I am Planning and gathering my thoughts. I am working at creating some routines and my “Just get it done” list. I will be working on one small area at a time. No over zealous daily projects. I am refusing to set myself up for failure or disappointment. However, I will be challenging myself on a regular basis.
Are you working on new routines, planning projects and organizing your life? If so, I would love to hear some of your plans or ideas.
