I have kind of a one track mind. I find it difficult to focus on more than one project at a time. I can do more than one task at a time, like talk on the phone, put away groceries and start dinner. I am a mom so that kind of comes with the job but as far as projects go I get going on something and I don’t want to stop. This is why I don’t do what organizational experts recommend and declutter for fifteen minutes a day. Once I start I don’t stop. I don't care about the stupid timer I will slap that sucker off and keep going. I will be up all night organizing my closet. I had better have time to get it done or I am better off not starting. I am a little obsessive once I start something. I can’t think about anything else.
I am at an interesting point in my writing career. I have finished the first book and am doing the last rewrites. I am also about halfway through book two and the characters are getting really loud because I have gone back to book one for a short bit. Apparently all these characters have an idea about who should go first and who has priority that has nothing to do with the deadlines I have set for myself. I also have a husband, two kids, a spoiled dog and a pile of laundry that I am pretty sure is reproducing in my laundry room.
Balance has always been an issue in my life. I never seem to quite manage it. Is it even attainable? I think I have it and then everything seems to topple over and I am left having to start all over. It seems to me other people do a better job of it than I do. I am not sure how they accomplish it. I love what I do but I do wish we had house elves. I would totally give them clothes.
Got any balance suggestions feel free to comment below.
