And then I just did it

It’s been a rough month around here. Suffice it to say that if there is one thing that Drew and I collectively suck at, it’s transitions. And living with a small person who is in a constant state of development puts us in a near constant state of transitioning. We’re getting the hang of it, slowly.

But trying to catch up on that hurt my work productivity. And I had a project that needed doing. It sat for several days. I kept prioritizing it last, which of course was the problem.

I get this loop going in my head sometimes. If I didn’t get the work done that I wanted to do today, that means every day will be like today, and I’ll clearly never get it done. Cue despair.

But there’s still work to be done. It’s still sitting there. So I whine about it.

And then I just do it. And you know what? Once I start working, I remember that I’ve been doing this for years. I’ve completed many, many projects. Why should this be the one that never gets done?

There’s no reason. So I just do it. And then it’s done. Time to move on to something else.

Maybe someday I’ll learn to just do it without the whining first. But I’m not counting on it.

    My struggle lately has been that I push and push myself to get all the family and housework related stuff done first, and *then* (I tell myself) I can work on the fun stuff. But I keep hitting the end of the week, or don’t have enough energy left over. Thanks for the reminder that this week is not the template for next week. It can happen.
