Struggling to Get Things Done
Posted May 7, 2008on:
I should begin by clarifying that I always get some things done, maybe even a lot of things done, but often not the things on my list.
There are days when I forget to even look at my lists (yes, plural); these are the days when I think I suffer from ADD. Then there are the days when I look at my list and feel overwhelming anxiety; these are the days when I think I need medication (real medication, not chocolate or wine).
Occasionally, I manage to look at the lists and actually make progress, happily checking things off and feeling productive. These are the days I think I’m perfectly okay.
I fantasize that there are zillions of people out there cheerfully and efficiently breezing through their to-do’s with time to spare . . . living lives brimming with order, serenity and peace of mind. Are there?
