"Different directions and lacking priority"

What a week!
And a dam bad migraine in the middle of it too. :-(
Stress, aint it just great... NOT.

But it weren't all bad. ;-)
Today is...
Happy mothers day mum.. ;-) ..And a happy 2nd birthday to my beautiful little niece Teigan :-)
Had a great weekend with my sons, proper quality time.

What else this week then? Well as you see some dam stress, sorted out now.
The home is still better and less cluttered... be handy for when I move. :-)

I have got my pc more organised now and as a result it seems to have speeded up some of the time I do things, knowing where to look helps. ;-)
The viral idea I had brewing last week made me to think too and as you know when you start to think about something, other ideas start to spring up and I am SO glad they did.

Most importantly I WROTE these ideas down.. :-)
I then spoke with someone who I know and respect and the result was a very positive and encouraging situation.. Thanks for that ;-) You know who you are. ;-)

So that lead to an exciting and productive and promising plan of action to act on which was a revamp of the idea I had but with a far better plan thrown in with a far better potential to succeed.
Woo wooo.... exciting, and you're sure to hear from me how it goes. ;-)
I am reluctant to say it all here..yet.. but I will say this, I will post the link here FIRST so you readers will be the first to see the idea. :-)
Bear with me though.. ;-)

What else.. well there are a few things pulling me in different directions some times, not that I dont want to do all the things, more of a case that I allocate time for each with ONLY that "thing to do" in that time, and do this for all I have to do.
"Its not the hours we put into it.. its the work we put into the hours" never rang so true.

I do what is needed when I do it but the "other" things linger in the mind and THATS what I have to block out, when I write this, I have to think of "nothing but this".
This I think will make a big difference from now on so I will "prioritize" time to each job, task.
This I hope will mean I get more done in each time sector, and the result will I hope be better for having the "focus" only on the task in hand.

So the main task this week is to get things going in this manner, prioritize the time I have, and go "flat" out in those times on the job in hand.
One thing I have to do is post to my blogs more often and stick to it like I used to.
The blogs are a great outlet in some ways, if you write it down, its out of mind.

I know I have let the marketing blog slip a bit but thats because I do have other things that I have to do. Not only that but a few of the other things I need to do are mainly a case of set it up, and let it run, so I only need to do that hard work..once. :-)

As I am doing a favour to someone too, and this is important, this will be the main focus on the begining of the week, this will allow me to also give this the full attention to get it done.
After that I can also do what I have to do for my progress, while still having time to do things as needed for my friend.

This week I really want to "step up a gear" and get cracking, as the quicker I do the work and the more I do the closer I am to my goals.
An egg timer is something I will get too. ;-)

This weeks servings served. ;-)

Thanks.

Rob

Hey Rob,
I certainly feel your frustration. I have a considerable amount of migraines myself. Since you are deaf, can you recieve any help from the government? I would hope you could.. It seems though not all of thoses who get it deserve it when the ones who really need it cannot recieve.
I used to get so downhearted about not having a job. I felt like it was what people looked at when they met you. First hello, what's your name and then What do you do?
It always made mother seem so trival a job. Nevertheless now that I am working I don't wish too. I want more time at work. The grass is always greener on the other side.
I also used to write aloth of my goals. I still write my goals. but I do hate to=do lists even though I still Must use them.
I would plan too much for one day and then get mad when it wasn't done. All of it.... There really is nothing to do but do it.
Prioritizing is also very clear in the rear view mirror. So just remember You are more than what you do and accomplish in live.
You do have greater value...
Our most important chore is to realize the value we have to ourselves, others and God above.
Only then can we be happy.. We can't buy or work our fingers to the bone for happiness...

Angela,

Thank you so much for the nice comment.

I have filled out the relevant forms that I were given but its a waiting game with them.
The migraines I have always had, but they have got less frequent as I have got older, my mum use to get them worse than me, and they stopped when she hit forty, so hope mine do in few years. ;-)
My youngest son, who was 10 a little while back gets then too, but again not as bad as me, so it seems its getting less through the generations. :-)
I hope so.
I have found the MAJORITY are stress related for me, my mum used to get them from melted cheese.
We don't yet know why my son gets them, other than running in the family.

Thanks for stopping by Angela. ;-)

Well done Rob for keeping it going. You will find that from week to week, as you continue to dedicate this little hour or so every Sunday that your work will start to focus itself on what you need to do, depending on the goals you set yourself.

When it comes to to do lists I can hand on heart say I NEVER get through the whole list for the day. I get through the IMPORTANT one's ( usually ) but if you manage to get through your entire list the list is too easy.

I could do with judging a little better how long things take to do, as this is the main reason I put too much on the list.

So if I have completed 40 percent of my to-do list, at least I have made progress. and I have some data to analyse if I ever want to find out why I am not achieving more than 40 per cent...

Beating yourself up is unproductive spend of your time.

Becoming productive is as much about eliminating nonessentials as it is about carrying out essentials.

Keep it up! :)
