I’ve watched the weather – not that it’s ever really accurate but I still seem to do it every morning. (?) I’m on my first cup of coffee and thinking about the day ahead. This is the time when I usually have ALL sorts of great plans and hopes for the day. Sometimes I even make lists! This is also my most productive time of the day… at least in my head.
There’s an unwanted pet in my house, a bug of procrastination. I hate it. It’s a creepy, crawly, sneaky little thing that I rarely notice and can mess up a day, and goals, quicker than anything else I know of barring the flu. It’s kind of like a spider really, Quietly wrapping me in silken threads of ‘doing nothing’, and as the day goes on those threads get stickier and more difficult to extricate from. I think I’ll give it a name. Steve. Steve the Spider!
I’m going to explore this mental arachnid and it’s myriad grasping legs that prevent productivity in the next few weeks and share what I find out with you. I’ll start with this little test from Psychology today, maybe it will bring some clarity.
I’d like to hear how you deal with your spider of procrastination in the comments. Let’s name this little bugger so we can deal with it and get on with creating a great life!
and…Good morning all!
Having ADD is a bit of a bummer at times.
I find it very easy to get distracted and lose my focus, especially on things that are important. Hubris gets in the way and the day-to-day tribulations pile up. Then I stop and realize that, shoot, I have yet again let things slide. Helium balloons rise to become lost in the sky, and so does my focus on my goals.
Part of it is fear. Fear of success. Part of it is procrastination. Part of it is a disorder I struggle with everyday.
So, here I am…refocusing on what is really important to me.
Happy New Year!
Going over some of my older posts this one stood out for me. It’s an idea that I find I have to remind myself of often, to stay on track. Enjoy!
It’s important to stay positive. I think that is one of the key ingredients to creating a great life. It is also important to stay true to yourself and be clear about your inner motivations and intentions.
Agenda’s are those underlying concepts and desires that structure how we operate in the world. They are our special interests – those things we feel passionate about and want to promote. They are the things that are at the bottom of our personal goals.
Most of us who are dedicated to personal growth have some sense of our place in the world, of being part of a community, whether that is global, our countries, our towns, our neighborhood or even our own small circle. We are part of a system, many systems in fact, and although we are ultimately only responsible for ourselves it would be foolish not to see that we have…

I’ve come up against the dreaded technical issues. WordPress is fine – it’s having your children use your computer that isn’t.
Will be back very soon.
I’m having one of those days.
Negativity is taking up all the space in my head, my friends, rent free. I didn’t invite it – it just came and plopped itself on my couch, getting bigger and bigger… and smirking at me.
It affects my environment too though I’m not sure how that works. Something is wrong with my phone. I didn’t get the mail I was waiting for. My email doesn’t seem to working well either. I tried to write this morning… nothin’. I got nothing.
But I’m tryin’… oh yes. I went for a walk, I ate something nutritious, even had an extra cup of coffee. Those things are keeping me from just crawling back into bed and writing this day off.
I’m not sure what I’m going to try next… maybe I’ll get dressed up. Sometimes when I feel like crap – getting all super clean and dolled-up helps. Maybe I’ll find something that’s silly and playful. Maybe I need to have a chat with my monsters and find out why I woke up like this. I may have to journal, or draw, or dance. Or just clean something, anything.
Today, one little thing isn’t enough… I may have to bring out the whole arsenal.
It’s one of those days when I need to pull out every little bit of advice on positivity, and every trick in the book. Beating myself up because I’m not Miss Positive every minute of every day isn’t going to help. Believing the negative thoughts won’t either.
It’s just one day.
I may need crayons.
