Productive...and not

For the most part, I've thought that this blog lowers my productivity. As in, instead of doing things that need done, I'm sitting and blogging. Not that my teeny little blog takes up all that much time, but as we all know, the minutes add up and next thing you know, you've spent an hour writing and reading and commenting and there's the laundry, still waiting to be washed.

However, I felt that today, my blog helped my productivity.
Yesterday, I shared my to-do list here , and said that I hoped to have gotten 10 of the items done and crossed off.
However, by the time I went to bed last night, not only had I added additional items to the list, I hadn't gotten 10 of them done.
While I love lists, I woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed and stressed. I rarely feel this way about my lists, and couldn't figure out why I was feeling so annoyed about it all.

But the more I thought about it, I think that I was feeling stressed because I made a big public statement about getting 10 things done, and I didn't. It felt like a bigger "failure" than if I never mentioned it at all.

So, today I focused on getting things done (until I fell asleep with Isabelle this evening and slept for 3 hours) and am happy to say that I have 19 items checked and crossed off.

Yay me.


  1. 19!? Thats fabulous! That for sure beats my three things I did =/ haha! I will habitually post pictures of a dirty closet or drawers and say I want to have it done by the end of the day... it really gets my butt moving knowing that my dirty little mess is brodcast to all of blog land =)

    Have a great night! <3

  4. That sounds like me today. I had all these things in mind that I wanted to get done around the house, but it's much more fun to be on the computer! At least I can do laundry while I'm on the computer! And it's still early I guess. I may still get to it. :)
