My son has started school this year so for the first time ever, I have 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, to work. In theory. I feel like I have LESS time now than I ever have. I get to the end of the day and I’ve achieved nothing. I’m working through a model at the moment.
C: I seriously can’t even think of a C-line. This often happens. Maybe…”I’m less focused than I’d like to be.” But that’s a thought isn’t it.
T: I need the house to be clean before I can concentrate on work
A: Do a little bit of the house cleaning each day but not enough for it to every be actually clean.
R : Get very little work done and feel guilty about the work and the house for the rest of the day.
I’m doing the Year of the Impossible and one of the things Brooke says is that to be successful in this endeavor you might decide to deprioritize other things. So I’ve tried this new model:
C: Same as above
T: The house is a secondary priority to reaching this Impossible Goal
F: I can’t get to a feeling because my brain is only being logical about it. I’m thinking, “Yes, but other people have to live here too, so it’s not just about me prioritizing this goal, I also have my place in the family and that means the house has to be clean.”
Uh! I’m in a loop.
