Productivity and time management are my bright shiny objects
I have a bit of a problem. Actually it’s more like I have a fondness for perusing a gazillion different productivity and time management sites.
But the productivity part stops there. It goes no further.
That’s the problem.
I also have a habit for making lists just so I can make a strike right through the item completed. Everyone needs a hobby.
The way I see it, it could be worse. My hobby could be suddenly yelling “Yeah!” for no apparent reason or sitting on the couch and watching cars go round in circles for hours on end.
Or maybe….it could be as simple as innocently plugging in the microwave with my eyes cracked open at 5am for another fun filled day…and having it explode.
And not even because I put anything metal in it. I didn’t. It’s a helluva wake up call, and definitely better than a gallon of coffee. Ask the neighbors. We were awake and alert for hours following that this morning.
The Before I Hit 40 Bucket List
I started this bucket list way back when I was 20, and didn’t even know I had ADHD, much less a yen for time management and productivity fence sitting.
When I thought that age 40 was the end all, be all. Which isn’t, but I didn’t know that then. The trouble is that 40 is getting closer but I’m not making any headway into crossing items off that damn list.
I thought if I were to put it here, it might give me the boost I needed, like the wake up call by microwave this morning, but without the shell shocked and deaf neighbors, asking (yelling) if I was testing heart attack induction via sound. I wasn’t intentionally no, but now there’s an idea! Productivity via explosions…
Speaking of yelling “Yeah!” as a hobby…
My other half just came home, looking very much as though he might’ve blown up a few microwaves today himself. I guess that bucket list will have to wait, well damn and oh what a shame. I’ll just post it next week.
I’ve got to explain the reason our microwave has this gorgeous star burst pattern of jagged metal artwork extending from it’s backside and the window directly behind that.
The one letting in all the hot air and missing all of the glass. And do the laundry, as I have some soiled undies to take care of.
I’m downright productive today, don’t mind the shakiness, I hear that dissipates over time.
