Distractions can cause havoc with best laid plans! The recent spring weather, as good as it was; managed to lure me into the garden. I had a terrific time planning and planting my new garden and had a excellent time in sunlight. However it was a terrific distraction to my time.
This was just the most recent distraction; I have been procrastinating for months, after eighteen months of vertigo and general ill-health. I’ve allowed my business activity to slide into oblivion!
Well now is the time to make a change, I really prefer a structure for my life, a goal and achieving goals, but I have been procrastinating and wandering through days with little to show for my time, and of course less satisfaction and little purpose. Sunny days in the fresh air were a very enjoyable distraction and come the summer the fruits of my labour will be visible.
So how have I managed to wake-up and take charge of my life ? Well I chose to read a book I had previously published.
Sometimes it’s easy to let yourself become bogged down by unfortunate events, ill-health or general day-to-day living. Spring always feels like a good time to turn things around and as character turns the hedgerows green again my enthusiasm for change grows.
The trouble when you choose to catch up again with matters that have descended in a downward spiral it is difficult to decide what to do !
My choice was to reassess what is most important to me, and what I find most enjoyable. Life is too short to not prioritize things you like doing!
The first was to get fit again I’m not overweight just a bit flabby from lack of exercise and my balance has gone to pot after my leg fracture etc.. So Tia Chi I am told should help that, and a toning program and when I can fit it in – balance exercises in my Wii fit.
My second was to rebuild my internet business and work at home. I have all the knowledge I just need the determination to put it all into practice! So with all this planned activity I certainly shouldn’t be bored by a lot of TV!
It is easy to let procrastination and distractions take over your life, until one day you wake-up to locate years or months have passed by. Decide what is really important to you and make a concerted effort to reach it Wishing you great success and a happy journey too!
