Some days, it seems impossible to get anything done. Sometimes it’s for legitimate reasons, like you intended to clean your car out, but you had to take a kid to the doctor and when you got home your dog had shredded every piece of paper in your house and your cats thought it was so amusing they decided to throw up everywhere, and by the time you got finished with that mess, it was time to cook dinner.
And then there are the days where you have no legitimate reason whatsoever that you didn’t get your work done. Perhaps you fooled around online too long, or your new DS game captured your attention. Whatever the reason, it’s not one that’s easily explained to anyone other than yourself. Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
The thing is, we all do this sometimes, some of us more than others. If you’re finding yourself doing everything but what you are supposed to be getting done, stop and take a moment to regroup, then work on what you’re supposed to be getting finished. If it’s one of those never-ending projects, feel free to take breaks, but set a timer and then get back to work when the timer dings.
It’s easy to let yourself get lost in other things, when you’re supposed to be doing something else. But take heart, you can get started right now.
