{my creative space} busy … getting nothing done

Visiting the land of procrastination, with a detour down distraction street

This week I’ve been visiting the land of procrastination, with a detour down distraction street.

And I’m betting we’ve all been there.

So the most creative thing I’ve done this week is writing that first sentence up there. Apart from finding ways to not do the things I’m supposed to be doing.

As well I’ve been:

  • I’m still playing with my food
  • I’ve been helping the eldest with a slideshow project for school
  • And working out new homework routines
  • I’ve been playing on the photo blogging site tadaa
  • And  avoiding to do lists

After thinking about being busy versus being productive yesterday, I’ve got to say that today I’m neither.

Some times, I find it easy to procrastinate by writing the to do list. Because hey, that’s working, right. But on reflection, I think I need to write many lists ~ for today, for tomorrow, for the chores that need doing, for the someday projects, for the things to remember.

And then maybe I will know where to start.

Directions. The lists are the map to the land of productivity.

Yep, time to stop being poetic and get some work done.

What’s your favourite destination in the land of procrastination?

      I was fairly sure I wasn’t going to be Robinson Crusoe on that island. It’s so paralysing though, it’s now the weekend and I’m still spinning my wheels!

      That’s my problem too Brandi, too many breaks! There’ a lot of “after this I’ll be able to get stuck in and get it done” and it ain’t happening! A bit of a February slump happening it seems.

      I know Gretchen. I have plans, lots of plans, and I need to get some stuff out of the way to focus on said plans, and the plans aren’t even incentive enough to get said stuff done and just get on with it. And I don’t even have the mojo to throw said stuff aside and just concentrate on the plans. I think it is called being overwhelmed perhaps :) Soon, soon!
