Spinning My Wheels

I can't seem to get anything accomplished. I've been flitting from task to task, and completing nothing. Part of the problem is organization. I know that, but I'm not an organizing type of person. I'm just spinning my wheels, and not in a good way.

I've been trying to get some housecleaning done, and can't stick with any of it.

I've been trying to get some sewing done, and keep finding mistakes I've made and I'm dead in the water until I can get the seams ripped out so I can start over.

I've taken on a website that I have to coordinate, (what was I thinking?!) and the only free "what you see is what you get" editing programs are hard to use or just won't work on my system for some reason. 

I'm trying to change my Bible Study and quiet time to a different time of day, because I get settled in first thing in the morning, and wind up spending over an hour at my desk. I am not studying all that time either. *wink*

What's a girl to do? Well, I remember some advice some of you smart folks have offered, and I'm going to try to implement those ideas.

Make a list of what I want to accomplish for the day and check each item off.

Make a schedule of cleaning jobs in the house, a day for each particular job or room.

Figure out what time God wants me to study, so I won't be distracted, and can take my time and not worry about how much time I'm sitting at my desk.

And try, as hard as it is, to get up earlier. I had very good intentions this morning. I woke up at six, and instead of getting up, I closed my eyes. Next thing I knew it was 8:00 a.m. Not good people. 

And last but not least...and this is maybe the hardest one....stop worrying about entering all the cool giveaways on all the blogs I read, and worrying about whether I win or not. Something for nothing...or at least for a few words and wasted time. They are wonderful, and those who are offering them are so very generous. I just take too much time focusing on them.

Sounds more like time management rather than organization. A list is good, but don't get so regimented that you stress your list isn't getting done.

We can turn off the computer just like we can turn off the TV. I only enter into give aways with blogs I already follow - there are too many - you just have to be selective.

I've given up the giveaways, but I think I'm just going to attribute the lack of motivation to the HEAT! It is hot, you know. No? Doesn't work? Pshaw!

I too gave up on giveaways. Unless I am following one already and they have some good stuff.

I like keeping a Lifebook. It helps me so much. But I don't try to keep very regimented like Sharon says. It would stress me not to be able to keep my schedule. I like keeping a list, I mark off as I can and move along it.

I think we are a lot alike. I would rather throw a project away that frustrates me. Isn't that awful? I have done it. More than once!!
