Are you procrastinating about building your dollhouse?
Chances are that you are or will. It's really a mindset that invades us all. You and I know it's true.
So now that we have that out of the way we can move on to more important decisions. That is getting truly passed procrastination.
A good friend of mine once told me that the hardest part of any job was getting there. Deciding to go was my most trying time. If this is you then you are not alone.
The Goals you Set are Up to you ..
But say you... What do I do to increase getting things done that I want to do but still procrastinate over?
You simply begin today to have a different mindset. One that says I will not let anything stand in my way. You sort of have to treat yourself roughly and determine in you not to interrupt yourself and your creative time.
Yes yes I know those dishes and things need doing today. However do they not need doing every day? I know. They will be there whether or not you choose to have fun or whatever you do.
And add this to that thought as well... whether you use that half or whole hour to build a dollhouse, your FUN project, the time will pass anyway.
So the decision is yours.... Do you let yourself enjoy life or not? Or do you simply become a worker bee? All work and less and less fun leaves you with no excitement in your life. That's a sad state of affairs.
Try this Technique ..
One basic technique I have learned well about work that needs getting done...
Generally if it has to do with chores around my home... I think to myself... I don't have time for all of it but I do have time for a small portion thoroughout the day. So that's what I do. I will fold 5 items of clothing and move on.
That's if you work at home. Like me. I work at home but I like my home tidy. I like order. So I do things in small chunks. And you know, I get what is needed done.
But I as well set up a good calendar and stick to it. If it isn't time for housework I don't do it. I make plenty of time for my fun projects.
Mostly my fun moments these days are spent working on my creative website e-business. I love writing and have realized I can not keep pushing it away in favor of housework or something else. That to me resembles goose chasing. And I try to do as little of that as possible.
I also have set up a definite schedule for housework where that is all I do. And I do that on only one day. Except for laundry which I figure just about takes care of itself until you think of folding it.
Mental and Written Plans are both Essential...
Mentally plan to build a dollhouse today and then work it into a physical schedule or you won't do it. Work of some sort will sneak in there and you know it. So when you think of your plans write them down.
Getting organized mentally and physically is your greatest stumbling block to entering into a fun moment to build a dollhouse.
Once you're organized and doing what you truly want for that hour. You will find as I do, that, gee the time flew so fast and now it's over, boo hoo. But if you plan it right you can get a lot done in an hour.
