I can remember in days past sometimes daydreaming about having days free to do whatever I wanted to do. I would imagine finally getting to complete some of the projects in my mind. Well, it seems now that time is here.
The only problem is – how do I get myself up and running to get things done? What do I do with all my time? Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I don’t have a list of things that need to be done. I’ve physically made a list of things to do at just this time when I’m finally living on my own. There are closets to clean and organize, studying and writing to be done, business details and paperwork. The problem is not having something to do. The problem is having the motivation to get things done.
How do I develop the self-discipline to get up and take on these projects when there’s no one here to be accountable to? There’s no one to even know if I’ve stayed in my pajamas all day. I do better when I have a specific appointment. But sometimes it becomes so easy to just sit in front of the computer or get lost reading posts on Facebook.
I want to be able to look back at the end of the day and see that I’ve accomplished something, even some little thing. But how do I get started?
