As we launch into 2013 and pondering what exciting time this year will bring (as 2012 will be pretty hard to beat) I have been thinking of ways of keeping myself on track as a go about my day to day this & that.
For those who know me well, well those that have to deal with me every day will know how I am rather good at getting side tracked away from the matter at hand. Usually those small insignificant jobs that have to be done on a daily basis but necessary to stop your world falling into a chaotic black hole....I am sure my lovely readers that there are a fair few of you guilty of those crimes.
So I have purchased myself an actual write in page to a whole day diary and a very plain and dull brown notebook. It is dull and plain because otherwise I won't write in it but will just look at it lovingly and move it from shelf to pile and back again....in the chaos.
Every morning or maybe evening I am not sure exactly when I shall write a to do list 3 essential tasks that have to be done and 3 things I should like to do... to try indeed to keep me on track.
I know that I will never be super organised and that the unconventional way I go about things will generally mean that things are ship shape and proper maybe once a month, for an hour or two, long enough to take a quick snap and post it somewhere or other on the internet to lure you into the false sense that I live in a perfectly tidy and quite lovely home....I also like to kid myself that I live in a lovely organised, tidy and clean home.
My book of to do's is really about me getting more things done in the time I have without completely trashing everything...I have high hopes but is also something that I would like to look back on and ponder the things I achieved throughout the year as often things get lost under the piles. So this means writing the lists in my very best hand writing rather than the untidy scrawl that matches the pile of wet towels in the bathroom.
So there you have it....just wondering how long I will keep it up before it becomes boring & tiresome and falls into an abyss...
