My Story: 365 day blog challenge Day 49 Tomorrow will be Different…..

365 Day Blog Post Challenge 2019
Day 49
142. You’re going to make tomorrow different by…

Recently I have been feeling very flustered when it comes to keeping myself organized and on track.  Both at work and at home.  I am a master list maker and I am great at writing things down, but I have not been so great in the past 6 months or so in keeping myself motivated enough to complete all that needs to be done.

Work has been the most challenging.  For some reason I have not been able to get myself out of the hole that I am in with all the backlog of work that I have to do.  I am usually so good at working hard and doing above and beyond what is required to make sure that work gets accomplished.  Part of the problem is that every time I take one step forward in getting something accomplished, I end up getting 5 more things added to my plate, so I end up always being 3 steps behind, regardless of how much I am able to get done in a day.   It makes me feel defeated and unhappy.  Then I get to the point where I get so overwhelmed and unmotivated that I end up feeling like it’s not even worth trying.

As for home… that is just pure procrastination.  I always have a list a mile long of things I need to do.  I often just feel to exhausted at the end of the work day to do any of them.  I look at my lists everyday and usually add at least one new thing every day.  I always have great ambitions.  I have one main list and then will make a separate “do today” list, pulling items from the main list.  I clearly feel there are more hours in a day then I have available because my “do today” list is always way more than could possible be completed in one day.

So, I will make tomorrow different by getting myself more focused on both work and home tasks.  I will start getting more things accomplished and be less of a procrastinator and more of a doer.
