Happy Monday morning, dear readers!
I probably should have begun my next installment of WWHI promptly on February 1. However, I’ve been out of town and otherwise occupied and not really able to blog it. I’ve also been meditating on just what it would be – what ALL it would be – and have only recently come up with the answer.
This month’s WWHI will be one-fold and pretty straightforward although, I’m afraid, not very simple. This month will be work on something that I’ve lacked, but desired, all my life. I have my doubts about being able to develop such a characteristic, I wonder if I’m even the TYPE of person for it but, it is important to me to at least try.
So, this month’s WWHI challenge will be TIME MANAGEMENT. Eeek.
Working from home makes it all to easy for me to daudle. I can awaken when I want to, have coffee for as long as I like, play on the Internet, forego exercise, nap, and generally lolly-gag around. In fact, I do far too much of this, to be honest. I’m not the type of person, however, who wishes for a completely structured, hour-by-hour, play-by-play, down to the millisecond plan for each day. No, that wouldn’t work at all. What I wish for, rather, is a rough plan of what my day will look like, what it will incorporate and what I plan to accomplish or work on.
Not too much to ask, I’d say.
But, I know me and I know how large of an undertaking this will be. Again I say… Eeek.
The reason for all of this is that I want to accomplish certain things in life. I want to get things done and be the best me that I can be. Daudling away my time won’t accomplish that. However, neither can I resolve to completely overhaul who I am and who I have always been. I have this “all or nothing” mentality and always have had that. I think that I will start being the “new me” on a certain day and that I will morph into the person that I dream of being.
Sadly, it doesn’t work that way.
For, who can really wake up on a designated day and exercise as they should, make the money that they want to make, eat impeccably, keep everything in order and everyone looked after, read X hours each day, journal X hours each day, take all the vitamin supplements that need to be taken for optimal health, not watch TV at all, etc. etc.? The undertaking is too huge, the change is too great and, to resolve to wake up one morning and be a different person is, at least for me, not feasible at all.
Part of my battle has been in realizing this. Baby steps work too, after all.
So, then, my baby step for this month is time management. Heaven help me.
If you have any thoughts, tips, or advice on this, please share them! I’m open to any help that I can get, as always.
Have a lovely day, dear ones, and wish me luck!
