Ok, so I know that disorganizationistis isn't a real disorder (or is it?) but if it was I really would suffer from it. I am always getting down on myself because it seems like I have a never ending to do list that never gets done (sound familiar). It is a never ending circle...I can't seem to accomplish anything because I always feel like my house is a mess and my house is always a mess because I can't get anything done. I think one of my main problems though is that I don't finish what I start. I jump from project to project, task to task without really finishing anything. I am a keeper of the never ending to do list but what I crave is the ability to cross things off.
Since August is right around the corner (yikes!) I have decided to start the month fresh and try to focus on five tasks/projects a week. Some will be bigger than others and I am sure that some will get moved into the following week but if I can prioritize five things to focus on (along with my other daily duties and of course my creative detours) I might just be able to start checking them off.
I have decided to post my five weekly tasks/projects each Sunday and update my progress each week. This way, I am being held accountable for putting it out there.
So here is my weekly top 5:
1) Start catching up on Project Life 2012 - I won't even mention how far behind I am as that is another post in itself. I do want to mention though that as I look at the weeks that I have completed I love the outcome and really, truely do not want to give up on this project. I have some work ahead of me but I will push through and conquer. (Watch for my epic PL catch up plan post coming soon)
2) Pictures from 2009 - My computer is ancient and running out of space. It is so bad that I can't download any of my new pics from my camera because there is no room! I need to tackle moving old pictures from the computer onto a external hard drive and DVD (plus print them...yikes!). I have a huge post in the works on my process for this but first I need to free up some space.
3) Pictures from 2008
4) Finish The 19th Wife and start a new book - I probably should finish due to the fact that it is already 2 weeks overdue.
5) Clean the Craft Room/Office - this one gets a task all to itself as opposed to cleaning every other room in my house because this room is out.of.control. There really is no excuse....except the mess is a good excuse as to why my PL is so far behind...I cannot function in chaos! I would post a before picture now but I there is no room on my computer!
