Goals

I feel scattered and I need to focus. There's all of these things I want to accomplish, and I don't know if I have time to do them all. So that means I need to make time.

Which means I need to -- gulp -- organize.

It's not that I'm a total scatterbrain, but I don't organize much. I've tried - lord knows I've tried. Many times. Over and over. When I worked full time, I always meant well. Had calendars dinging at me on the computer (eventually just shut them off cos they annoyed me), made lists a mile long. But in the end I discovered those things didn't work for me. I preferred to work in chaos.

Ugh!

I get too easily distracted. At home, I'll fold a load of laundry, take it back to my bedroom to put away, start making the bed, clean the bathroom...and that load of laundry is still sitting there waiting to be put away.

This is the story of my life!

So this week my goal is to get organized. I don't know how much it'll help me, but I wanna try. Again. I want to organize both my personal life AND my writing life. I'd like to get a plan in place by the end of this week, especially cos I'm going out of town at the end of next week. Wish me luck cos I'm gonna need it.

What works for you guys? Any suggestions? I need all the help I can get.
