It’s Monday night, and I got a late start. The reason is simple. My schedule was thrown out of whack. I love to plan and when things don’t go according to plan, I do one of two things. I go with the flow, or I crack, buckle, and burn and do absolutely nothing. That’s been my biggest plight since COVID. Nothing is going to plan, and because of that I’ve wasted so much time doing NOTHING. Sure, I can make excuses of why this came up or why that came up, but at the end of the day, I am the master of my own universe, and if I really wanted to do it, I’d simply… DO IT.
But I didn’t, or I don’t.
Sunday is my planning night. But I think I need to change my mindset, and actually plan on Saturday’s as Sunday should be the start of my week. I think for me it may end up being the change I need in order to jump start my week properly. I’m planning and blogging at the same time, and that makes no sense to me.
Schedules are hard to produce, track, and keep up with for some people. *Raises Hand* I am on of those people. I can spend hours planning my week. Sometimes, I wonder, if all that planning is for nothing. But I see the benefits in the routine, even if I don’t always follow through with what I plan. I’ve tried to keep it simple for now. Three things I need to tackle for the day, and then reward myself for completing them. This is usually for my M-F work week. There is only one of me, and time isn’t always on my side, and I have to understand that there are things I just can’t finish and know that it’s okay to move them to the next day.
As I type that in my head, I’m saying, if I can’t handle three tasks, something’s wrong. But I know that isn’t the case. There are all kinds of obstacles in my way. (I can see clearly now the rain is gone.) LOL I have a grandson who wants all my attention, and I can’t help but be that go-to person he enjoys hanging out with. There is the day job that I compete with. Some days are longer than others. There’s dinner, housework, family, and a host of other items that all pose as something in addition to what it is “I” want to do.
I’m behind again, but hoping to not let it get me down and to just keep moving. How do you plan your week?
