365 Day Blog Post Challenge 2019
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.
