And we’re off to the metaphorical Monday races


Ever have one of those weeks where you feel like you tumbled into it out of a moving car and not even a to-do list can keep you on task?

Welcome to my Monday. And maybe your Monday too.

Example: I just interrupted myself writing this post to do two other tasks. Told you. It’s going to be that kind of a Monday. Still working on task number two. Who says you can’t do two things at once?

Basically everyone.

And now I’m ping-ponging back and forth, which isn’t great for the writing flow, but somewhat helpful for the feeling that I need to get things done. No doubt there’s a balance.

It probably requires coffee. So much more coffee.

Also I know I have a cell phone. I just couldn’t tell you exactly where it is at the moment. Ah, found it. Good thing my head doesn’t have a tendency to wander off. I mean, at least for now.

So much Monday.

I’m not sure if it’s being here in the apex of summer, knowing how quickly it all goes; I don’t know if it’s a break in the clouds of all that’s happening right now; but whatever it is, I want to do everything, and I want to get it done NOW.

Meanwhile MSN is offering a story on its scroll titled “Subtle signs you might have cancer.” Uh, no thank you please, I’ve got enough going through my mind right now.

I’m going to get going on it. Hope you have a marvelously productive week!

  1. I used to be a to-do list person. I still am, if there are definite, specific things to keep track of during a busy day/week. Or if I’m planning something.

    But now it’s more of a “to-done” list. Because I need to feel productive for my mental health, I jot down tasks after I’ve done them. It’s great for a sense of accomplishment!

    • I’ve been known to add those to my list just so I can cross them off!

      Such a fan of that. Why not feel good about what you’ve done?

      I do find writing things down makes me less stressed because then I don’t have to worry I’ll forget. It definitely helps with that.


  2. I’m finding that if I tell myself that I’ll do just. three. things. on my to-do list today, I get them done + a little more. However if I seat here and look at the whole long list I get overwhelmed/bored and don’t do a thing. I’m weird, but productive in a small way!

    • That’s a very good trick, I think. I should try that one, because being overwhelmed always ends in procrastination. ALWAYS.

      It also totally helps with focus. Which I could use right now, I’m still in one of those “Oh, SHINY” moods.
