It’s an “All the Things” Kind of Day

You know how it is when you let a small thing slide here and another there, and you put off x, y, and z because they don’t really need to be done right away, and then one day you look at ALL THE THINGS and you realize your molehill has grown into a monster and you’re reduced to mixing your metaphors in horrible ways in order to describe it?!?


That would definitely be me today.

So it’s going to be a “get my erm…stuff…together” kind of day, I think. This is how I see it unfolding:

  1. I’m going to start by finding my desk (I know it’s under here somewhere).
  2. Then I’m going to make lists of ALL THE THINGS I have to do.
  3. Then I’ll prioritize those lists.
  4. Then I’ll start doing ALL THE THINGS instead of just contemplating them.
  5. Then, at the end of the day, I’ll feel so much better and so accomplished, and life will be under control again.

Doesn’t that sound lovely?Cheers!

I think so, too.

And I’ll get started right after coffee.

Really. 🙂

    Blergh, those days are annoying. Drink all the coffee, then you can get all the things accomplished.

      I actually don’t mind them that much, Bea…mostly because I’ve done enough of them to know how awesome it will feel once all the things ARE done. But yes, all the coffee will definitely help! 🙂

    This sounds like me. Procrastinators unite! Good luck with your list, Linda!

      Thanks, Reanna! I’ve checked off all but one item…and even accomplished a few extras. Woot! 🙂

    My lost of stuff to do has grown exponentially this last month! I’ve started using Evernote to keep track of everything. Problem is, my brain is so scattered and filled with mental clutter, and having trouble doing the important thing: write. So this week, I’m getting myself out of the house and writing my words in the morning, then coming back home to check things off the list. It’s working okay so far. I’m making my word count and the list is, um. Well, not shrinking because I keep thinking of more things to put on it, but the checkmarks are making me happy!

    Good luck with your list!

      Thanks, Sandy! And yes, your method works well for me, too. Whenever I need to crack the writing whip over myself, I head for my local coffee shop. Three hours there is the equivalent of a week at home, I swear. Today was a just a catch-up day, and I’m so much better off for having done it…I like check marks, too! 🙂
