Most people are under the impression I am a meticulously organised person. Perhaps this is because I get a lot done, I don’t know. What I do know is that my organisation skills resemble a tornado, yet, somehow, they are not so destructive.
In saying that, I believe it is only a matter of time before my system of chaos breaks down and the aftermath is as devastating as Dorothy’s arrival in Kansas. I live in hope that 2016 is the year I will turn my life around and embrace order.
Writing out the perfect plan has never been a problem, but my expectations are as fictional as the novels I write…that is unless I give up sleeping…and don’t worry, I’ve tried. There is just too much I want to do! No sooner have I written a schedule it’s out the window because there is something else I’ve failed to include. Truth is, my wants outweigh my needs.
The clock is looming overhead, the tick, a constant reminder that time will not stop and wait for me to catch up…instead it spurs me forward and dares me to take on more in order to conquer all I set out to achieve.
So, instead of restricting myself with too much structure I have found the old faithful list works best for me. You never know, one day I may actually reach the bottom.
If you have a system that works for you, I’d love to hear it. I need all the help I can get!
