Never -ending paperwork...and stuff

"Do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not." Thomas Huxley

Excellent words of advise, as I try to prepare for the wonderful long weekend ahead, a number of 'deferred' items keep using up space in my mind and my heart.  If only...  why didn't I...  I should have...

Someone much wiser than I once said, 'you need to quit SHOULDING all over yourself.'  The only problem with that is one must STEP UP as required so there is no reason to should on yourself...

Lists can help.  But they can also make you feel like you are overwhelmed and drowning...  

Here is a distraction... in this series, what comes next? OTTFFSSE_ _

This is my life... 

what was I saying? 

Ah yes, overwhelmed by things to do and lists... break your list down into areas or categories, and pick one item that deserve an A on each list- a must do.  Then determine which is the TOP A and then do it! Now- no excuses, until its done.

Let me know how that works for you... then start on the next A.  This IS what the experts say...

then there is me... jot lists everywhere fret about the items on them , then panic!  Then talk myself down a bit, and start again- pick A - what MUST I do today? Fight distractions around me- pick up the random item that is not where it belongs- put it away- o this is something else I was working on- give that a shot at getting finished... stumbling block- distraction- o ya! I was working on A!!! try again... sigh.  

I am learning that this is not an unfamiliar story, so bear with me- and bear with yourself. Try not to create mountains for yourself- love yourself and drink your water as Flylady says.  You will get through this.
