Now, this is not going to be a blog post on how I achieve so much in a day or how to get things done. This is because procrastination and getting though my own to do list is probably my biggest problem.
I start off with all the right intentions and sometimes even fool myself that what I am doing is getting me closer to my goals but this is not the case.
It frustrates me no end. In fact it gets me that annoyed at myself that I get even less done.
I discovered that I have ADD some time ago and this is a problem that a lot of people have and I have tried all sorts of methods to overcome it with varying degrees of success.
One of the big problems is that it is very difficult for me to get into a rhythm and I start a system up or buy a diary and commit to writing everything down or adding everything to the latest project manager or auto reminder software only to forget after the first day and end up doing none of it.
They say it takes 30 days to make or break a habit but I am not so sure.
I suppose there is no such thing as the perfect system.
The one thing that I have found to work the best is to stick to doing one thing at a time. Now this might sound easy to a normal person but to me I find it incredibly hard not to get sidetracked or start up 5 things at once.
IF you have one thing to do and do NO do anything else until that one project or job is finished then I do tend to get so much more done.
Now the question is, if I know this and if I have experience of this, why do I still end up getting sidetracked and doing other things half way through?
Like writing this blog entry for example when I should be editing the pictures and adding them to our new site www.portraitpaintinggallery.com ?
Who knows, but unless I stop now and get back to it, I will still be trying to get it done in 3 days time.
Wish me luck and let me know of any sure fire methods that are guaranteed to help me and I will give them a try. 🙂
