Well here I am again, writing about being stuck, because I’ve been stuck. Many reasons, will spare you the excuses.
In Mexico, on vacation, but still have a to do list of about six things that need doing pretty soon. Wasn’t doing any of them. One was this blog.
Made a list. Made a four day calendar and spread them out across it. That helped a little bit. Said I would do the first one. I didn’t. Ate some ice cream instead, which I’d said I wouldn’t do. But then I did one. Putting the reward before the achievement, probably a mistake. But could be a new strategy?
Then I did another one, but not the next one high on the list. Trying to use my “do the hard part first“ strategy, but I’m not. The hard part can’t be broken into small steps. Well, actually, I haven’t tried that. It’s a good idea if it’s possible. That’s my next strategy.
I have some links for you to make this post more useful than my dithering.
But at least I’ve done something now, which is better than nothing.
Note: I did have a lot of distractions while doing this blog, and I wasn’t quite hyperfocused, but I committed to finishing it and did not follow any of the distractions. It wasn’t easy.
