I’m not sure what I want to write about tonight so I’m just going to start. The Nats are in the 1st inning against the Braves. Pale Rider by Field Report is playing in the Chrome tab attached to the tab of this Google Doc.
Like I wrote about yesterday I’ve decided I want to take on a new project. I do not know what it’s going to be. Which is a good thing because I’m not starting on it yet. I want to start soon; but not yet. Light planning and some soul searching is fine. However I’m putting off doing the work.
How come? Well, with starting anything new you need to build it into your routine. At my present state, even with limiting the amount of time I spend on EVF and CmdEdit, I absolutely cannot take on anything new. Today I spent about an hour going through OmniFocus. I looked at each project in there. Looked at what I need to do for it, if I need to do it and when I need to do it by. And for the first time in awhile I feel remotely organized.
Now that I’m organized I have to actually follow-through with what I said I’m going to do. There’s still a gigantic list of to-dos on my plate. I have to take care of these first. Even if all of them aren’t “important” they’re there and they’re going to weigh me down mentally if I don’t get them done and I start diverting my attention to the new shiny toy (whatever this new project is).
These to-dos are things like finding a financial advisor, setting something up on my grandmother’s computer, returning something to Target, etc. Most of these things I’ve been pushing off for months. And in order to have any calmness of mind I need to get ‘em done first.
Okay. I think that’s all I have in me today.
