Being unemployed do have its positive sides. One of those being that I can plan my day as I want. However, most of my days fly by so fast, and I often end up with the feeling that I haven’t really done anything. I usually don’t spend most of the morning sleeping, but often it still ends up being between 8 and 9 before I get up, and as I don’t like to rush in the morning I prefer to have at least one hour to take a shower, have breakfast and so on, meaning that it is often at least 10, before I start doing anything. Still, this means that I have plenty of time left to do all the things I need to do and want to do. But I don’t know what happens, because I often end up spending the day on a few things instead of being very productive for a the whole day and then maybe call it a day at 4 or 5, without feeling guilty because I have actually done the things that I wanted to do that day. I haven’t quite figured out how to be more productive during the day, especially in regards to the things that I really want to do;
I talk a lot about all the things I want to do. All the dreams I have, and the good things I want to make happen in my life. I talk and I talk some more. And the closer I get to actually feeling “yes this is what I want” and actually felling it a 100%, the more stupid I feel. Because I don’t do anything about it. “I want to be a writer”. Okay, then write. And I write and I write. Then I stop. And then all the excuse enters. Then I start again. Write, write and write some more. And then I stop. I am like someone trying to quit smoking and failing to do so every time. And why is that? Fear of course. Fear is the one thing that always tends to stop anyone for doing what they really want. “I want to move to London”. But oh no I can´t. I have to…bla.bla. And then all the excuses start again. One of my excuses for getting some writing done for instance, is that I don’t have a table; I will have to sit with my laptop on my lap making it bit more difficult to enjoy the process. But then go to a library right? There is one just five minutes from where I live…more excuses I guess.
But..I guess I can start on Monday right?
What do you do to implement a good daily routine? Are you able to being productive enough during the day, or are you constantly behind and feeling guilty? I hope not, but if you are do share ♥
