Productive Monday

Posted on Monday 29th January 2007 at 00:00
Well, it seems that I've managed to be quite good this morning. Unlike every other morning for the last month or so, I haven't stayed in bed until the absolute last moment, rushed around like a mad man to get ready and then gone straight to work. Today I actually got up early. About an hour earlier than I needed, to be precise. See, towards the end of last night, I suddenly turned super productive, despite feeling tired, and not only ploughed my way through most of the jobs I should have been doing all day, but also wrote myself a list of things to do this morning, so that I wouldn't forget what needed to be done before work.

I don't know why, but it is always a lot easier to ensure that you do something when it is written on a list. I'm not sure why, but for some reason you just can't ignore it. When the list is in your head, it is all too easy to 'forget? to do the things you'd rather not do, without really feeling guilty. Not so with a written list, oh no. Those unwanted chores sit there on the page, silently mocking you, whilst all the while, the guilt burns its way through your soul.

My list for this morning contained 7 items. Of these 7, I've so far managed to complete 3, am doing the fourth as we speak (writing my blog), have left time to do another two before I have to leave for work, and have only decided to defer one (the washing up) until tonight, since I'll probably be home before anyone else so shall have it all done and put away before anyone wishes to cook dinner.

All in all, not a bad morning, and it is only 10 past 10 :-)
