When I quit my “day job”, I had this list of plans… ok so a hundred lists of plans. I knew what I was going to do, and how I was going to do it, and how long it was going to take… and nothing was going to stop me. I promised myself that I’d take my much needed 2 week break to recharge and then get started with my business.
Well… here we are. It’s been 2 weeks. It’s Monday. So far, I skipped out on my 8 am walk. I posted a grocery deals list – which is great and helpful, but NOT on my list of deliverables. I’ve played Farmville, took the kids for ice cream, started side dishes for dinner (after searching for “The Right Recipe” for 2 hours), read Twitter and Facebook, and changed my seating arrangement three times.
Guess what I haven’t done… you got it… I haven’t done a single damned thing on any of my lists. There’s probably not one single reason that I’m throwing stumbling blocks in my own way, and really, that’s not the important thing anyway. The important thing is that I not allow myself to fall into the habit of blowing off my responsibility to myself and my goals.
If you see me goofing off on Twitter or Facebook or any other social networking site, kick me in the ass and ask me what I’ve accomplished today. If I’ve done what I should, I’ll be thrilled to share… if I haven’t… then I’ll be publicly shamed and should only be plowing 32 more plots on Farmville before I’m back at work again.
