I don’t want to think that I’m a flake, but honestly I have not stayed committed to things lately. By lately I mean for several months now. I find something I’m interested in and hit it hard for a little while, then get distracted by something new. It’s not that I’m no longer interested, its just that I suck at time management.
I always plan on getting so much more done than I actually do. So, my attention strays from my first interest, and focuses on whatever is new. The original interest gets put on a back burner and I never quite get there.
Another thing I find myself doing is pushing things I want to do away simply because I’m mentally overwhelmed. I may be dealing with some obstacle in life and instead of carrying on with my normal day, I let it take over my thoughts to the point that I can’t or don’t want to focus on other things.
Lately my blog has been on the back burner. I have all these intentions and ideas, then bam! I have to take one of the kids to the doctor, I want to check out this new app, or any of the 1 million other things wives and mothers deal with on a daily basis. So, I haven’t been writing like I want to. I’m not really happy with the way it’s all going.
I’m going to make a conscious effort to making more time for my writing. My blog and WIP deserve my time. I just need to remind myself to PAY ATTENTION! To stop getting distracted and venturing off into too may projects at once.
