Yes. Well. This is how it goes around here:
I make plans for tomorrow, the day after, the whole week. I have a diary I keep my appointments in. I make lists of things I need to do – today, tomorrow, the day after, etc.
Then something happens. Nothing ever goes as planned… do you find that? Things I meant to do today get moved to tomorrow or the next day or next week. I do things today that weren’t on the list for this year. I shuffle papers, never use a pen in my diary (learned that the hard way), write new lists.
Surely I’m not the only person who’s life seems to have a life of its own?
Don’t expect any insights or clever solutions in this post. In fact, if you have a solution please share.
I know the theory: Write things down. Make lists. Prioritise.
I DO THAT.
Then things change and I need new plans and new lists. My plans are organic in nature, growing and changing…
I make lists and number things in order of priority as well as geographic location. I mean, how else will I manage to do everything in a time-and-fuel-efficient manner?
Will I ever get this under control or is this terminal do you think?
