It’s kind of a boring week here at Growing Her Worth. Being the middle of the month, there isn’t any updating to be done. Although it’s warmed up considerably from last week, it’s still cold here in the Midwest, and there’s still snow on the ground. Which means I’m hiding out inside, enjoying some down time.
One of the things I’m working on lately is my level of distraction. I’ve gotten really bad lately about getting mindlessly distracted, both at work and at home. The internet, email, TV; They all seem to suck me in for hours at a time. Hours when I should be doing other things.
To try to combat this, I’m working on making lists, and setting schedules. For the next few weeks I’m hoping to concentrate on the things I should be doing. Like working at work, instead of checking emails, or reading blogs. I found myself in a frustrating cycle of letting myself get distracted, not getting things done, then having to stay late to finish things up. Basically, personal time was cutting into work time, and work time into personal. So that’s the first thing I need to change.
I’m hoping once I limit the distractions, I’ll be able to get more done. Getting more done will help me feel more accomplished, and feel less pressured and frustrated when I’m behind on things. I’m still allowing myself some time to zone out, like later in the evening. I’m mainly concentrating on work hours right now. Hopefully once I have a system down at work, I’ll be able to start working on my personal time.
I’m a procrastinator by nature. But the number of hours I’ve been wasting in a day has just gotten ridiculous. I’ll never get anything done if I don’t start doing!
