Do you have the secret to organization and balance?
I know about lists. I even make lists. Where do the lists go? I think they drown in the sea of nonsense that is my desk. Anyone can make a list. Look. I’ll make one right now.
(in insignificant order and incomplete)
finish organizing desk
finish designing online writing course for work
write down ideas/plans for Plum Tree
catch up with blog reading
buy birthday gifts for Saturday’s party
finish illustrations for children’s book
start planning for October’s show
write that book jacket synopsis for the agent
make a better list
The problem with some of those things is that they never really leave the list. Laundry is forever. Sure, I could prioritize the list, but…well, that’s something else to put on the list.
prioritize the list
The list doesn’t appreciate how tired I am or that my son needs to eat.
Maybe I should put whinging on the list so I can mark something as done.
On the bright side, tomorrow I shall write the last story for story-a-day May. Whew. What will happen to my writing after that? No idea.
With my big move out of the way, so maybe I can now become the sane and organized person I’ve always wanted to be.
I’ll put that on the list.
be the way I ought to be
It’s on the list! That means I have to do it.
What about you? Do lists work for you? Or do they laugh at you behind your back?
