I think I’ve been asking too much of myself. Maybe it’s because I went, exhausted, to bed last night before I washed dishes or even started the dishwasher. Maybe it’s because I spend too much time thinking, and not enough time doing. Or a number of other things. But between More Discipline, rambunctious kids (and we can’t go outside as easily), the new Tupperware biz, and Thanksgiving next week, I have too much going on.
So for today, I am still going to have rambunctious kids … but it’s Thursday, the day the sitter comes in the afternoon to give me a break. I can’t change Thanksgiving being next week, or Christmas coming up. I’ll still do the Tupperware thing, but won’t make cold calls today. And I will do the more discipline thing:
- I will tidy the kitchen before bed.
- I will spend 15 minutes cleaning my office, and will tidy after myself.
- I will not expect myself to work on the business plan. That hasn’t been happening anyway, and I’ll cut myself some slack. Maybe I can double down when DH is on vacation next week.
- I will read Chapter 14 of 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life.
It’s impossible to type or write with the boys around, usually. They hijack the keyboard and take my pen. So I won’t expect myself to do much writing, and will do it all when the boys are otherwise occupied.
