…the way I planned in my mind. Do you do that? Before you get out of bed you get a “vision” of how perfect and awesome your day is going to be.
I’m going to use all the vegetables in the fridge and make amazing food that everyone will clamor over. I’m going to have five hours to myself to work on my own business; then, I’m going to take a few hours and finish working on those church projects I have started; then, I’m going to help my husband with his clients. Yeah, and in the middle of all that, we’re going to do a speed clean on the house, all while in a peaceful, happy atmosphere! It’s going to be great!#bestdayever! (Hubby just watched and self-identified as Squidward – just saying…)
The Real Me
The problem is . . . me. I got downstairs and noticed my Full Focus Planner from Michael Hyatt via my voluntary boss, Marion Dalton. I thought to myself, Hey, that’s the perfect way to start my Saturday! I’ll start getting this planner organized, and everything else will fall into line. Hahahahahahahaha! Hahahahahahaha! Hahahahahahaha! Okay, I can’t breathe now.
No, no, no. I’m soooooooooooooooooo me. I can’t just quickly scan the planner, fill out a couple pages and call it a day. Oh no. I need to read all the transcripts of the tutorials in one sitting, and put all of it into action right away.
Wait! Where did the whole day go? Did I eat? Oh yeah, I stopped at some point and made a cheddar stuffed pickle. I hope the kids ate. Man, I’m exhausted! My brain is mush. I think I’ll do a puzzle for a few minutes. Still mush. Let’s watch a show together. Still mush. Peace out people! Lights out.
Upward and Onward
Yeah, that was my real Saturday. This had better work. I better be consistent with using it every day and reaching my goals, or I’m going to be really ticked at myself. World, hold me accountable.
But I’m also the solution. #theproblemisthesolution #enneagram7 #learner (I’m way behind the 8-ball on the hashtag thing, and I’m probably not doing it right, but it is really fun…. Okay, so I just researched it, and No, I’m not doing it correctly, but I don’t care. If you follow those hashtag links I made, you’ll go down some great learning rabbit holes – well, except the first one, which will make you want to laugh and cry all at the same time.) So, I’m going to take my natural enthusiasm for learning something new, and I’m going to rock this planner. Here’s to reaching my goals – finally (That’s apple kombucha, btw).
My Big 3 for this quarter are straightforward: 1. Stress-free homeschool, 2. Stress-free healthy meals, and 3. Our young adults taking initiative and responsibility for their contributions to our home. Go me!
