5064 Resolution

Saturday, March 12, 2016

Maybe this world is another planet's hell.
– Aldous Huxley –


Wouldn't it be interesting if Trump supporters turn out to be the same folks who accused Obama of "dividing people"?


I need to get organized.  I think I have a bad case of internet addiction.  It's not unusual for me to spend the entire day online, reading articles, following links, looking stuff up, watching videos.  I get nothing else done.  

There are two classes of things I'm not getting done:
A.) Everyday household stuff like washing dishes, laundry, paying bills, vacuuming, sorting, filing, whatever, and 
B.) Things in furtherance of long-term goals, like getting out of the country house, rearranging things here so I can move furniture down, refiguring the budget so I don't need to depend on withdrawing principal now that I can (am forced to) use the IRAs, and so on.

I think the way to get moving is to commit to two from column A every day, and one or two (depending on complexity) from column B every week.

We'll see how long I can do that.  Having made the resolution on the drive home Thursday, I already failed yesterday.

Gary is spending all day on the net too. Just in the last two days he's started doing usefulness things. Perhaps it's spring.

I have been in that place and I have tried exactly that method of moving forward. It worked...for awhile, anyway. Good luck!

Queen - you may be right about spring. I seem to have more energy.

Lisa - My main problem is that I get overwhelmed. I look around and don't know where to start, so I don't start. I need to remember that one step forward is one step forward.
