I write this post at the public library. Our move went well. Only the usual little damage here and there and still a lot of boxes to unpack. Guess which rooms I started to get pretty first? Right, an easy guess: The kitchen and the master bedroom.
There is still a lot of work needed to be done. And it will take some time to get our phone and internet connected again. Our phone company needs a person to do some work and with a lot of luck we will get the connection running on the 4th of November.
Happy me, I can use the free internet at our public library in town.
Do you know how it feels when you think there is so much that needs to be done and so little time for it?
That is a feeling I often experience and when I let myself dive into it I do not get anything done at all. So I decided to try out some tricks to get some things done and perhaps more things than I thought possible.
Here are the tricks that worked for me in the past:
Put everything out of sight and only the one project you work on on your table.
Give the projekts you put aside dates to look at them again. Write these dates on your timetable. Take breaks. Yes, I tried to work the whole day without a bigger break and did I get more done? No, I did get less done than with breaks. So try to give you every now and than a little tea or coffee break. Try to get a little walk during lunch break... Do not feel guilty while having these breaks (That is a thing I still have to work on).
Do not think you need to know the best solution before you start your project.
Best is to get as much data as you need and than start your project just like a big game. You will perhaps take the wrong path for awhile but when you get further into it you will get the feeling if it is the right path or not.
Are not to shy to ask questions.
Are not to shy to ask for help.
When you have to do something you do not like do not concentrate on your dislike. Just do it when it needs to be done.
