I had lovely intentions this morning that involved going to my favorite coffee shop, a walk in the park, quiet time to contemplate and the loveliness of a Sunday.
Instead, I have done dishes, worked on a work thing, struggled to make my computer do the things it’s supposed to, and generally wasted the day. Well, ok, not wasted I guess. But not exactly what I had in mind.
How does this happen? Why do I so often end up in this boat?
I sidetrack. I start to do one quick thing, and the next thing I know hours have gone by. And then I feel like I need to finish.
There are a couple of possible reasons for this.
- I just sidetrack easily and put anything and everything in front of activities that are focused on things I want to do.
- I needed to schedule doing the things I actually end up doing instead of the activities that I want to do.
Which do you think it is?? I imagine it’s a combination of both. Will I ever be able to get the balance right?
