Google’s definition of habit: “a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up” – to which I add: especially one that is hard to create and sustain … ’cause as Robert Burns says (and I frequently quote) :
“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft agley“
This day, I planned to focus my time and energy – before 12 noon – on these things:
- post office – to mail 2 packages ~ accomplished …
- write today’s blog post ~ it is now 3:30 pm and in process …
- stitch on something: don’t just walk into my sewing studio, fondle the fabric or fiddle with a project and then leave ~ hah! I’ve walked past the open door dozens of times but not gone in…so, I guess that counts for somewhat accomplished?
There are still 4 items on my agenda and the clock steadily ticks… I think I’ll go for a walk and return to my agenda with a clear head, new perspective and hopefully renewed energy.
In case you’re wondering what happened today: I tried to sign up for a new online class and couldn’t log into my account to process the registration. I finally wound up having to create another account.
Joining Juliann and friends for another One Little Word (olw) update!
