I know I had them yesterday. The day before and further back than that. I just can’t find them today. My glasses are missing, I’m wearing a strange pair that makes the world look all bendy.
Dante, Becca and I have all looked. The next step is a prayer to St. Anthony. Don’t mock, it works. St. Anthony has relocated to our house for several years now.
Amongst the forgotten glasses I also have the new, yes, the new way of working so that time is not an issue.
-sighs- Time has always been an issue to me. Becca will leave me in the kitchen happily doing work then come back an hour later to find me still poised to hit the keyboard.
When younger I was always being told, “Well what were you doing for two hours?” My reply was “nothing”.
That’s how it went all my life until I read a post on Sacha Black’s blog about this book she had read and was now managing her time much better.
I bought the book and believe me, Deep Work by Cal Newport, is the business. A guide to rules for focused success in a distracted world.
I started by opting out of email notifications for all blogs. I now go onto my reader and straight to my likes to read the blogs. This saves me lots of time but also has its problems.
However, I am getting there and sometimes find myself thinking. “I’ve finished my work for today? Are you sure brain?”
I end this ridiculousness with thoughts and prayers for those in Irma’s sights. Please be safe and let her pass over without incident.
Now, back to the glasses.
