I blamed it on my wife and kid

by Scott Ames 4 replies
I wasn't getting much done because:

1. My wife kept needing things
2. My child needed attention and babysitting

but

Now that they are both gone for a vacation and I am alone I'm still not getting much done.

I must be in a funk. Any tips on regaining focus, concentration, and drive?

    Can do either/and/or...

    1. Go for a walk somewhere new, take a pen and paper with you and write out your to-do list

    2. Wait til the last minute and then panic, the feeling alone will motivate you and teach you not to do the same thing again

    3. Do the quick and easy jobs first, the achievement of completing the little tasks will give you motivation to tackle the bigger tasks as you see your to-do list shrinking.

    4. Outsource anything you don't NEED to do yourself *



    * You know why... lol.

      Most important piece of advice ever. You should be doing the thinking, not the doing. I didn't get anywhere until I realized that.

    Mentally have the 'look at all that I managed to get done while you were away!' conversation with your wife. You'll be so fired up by it that you'll be able to have it for real when she gets back
