I've been thinking a lot about productivity and how it fills me with happiness. I've been thinking also of how I waste my time. Yesterday, for instance, I was quite productive. I worked on my continuing ed packets and diligently focused on reading the content. I find it challenging to get into that mind set since I'm mostly in creative thinking mode. I prefer creative thinking mode!!
The current knitting projects have been worked on and I see daily progress and get a thrill knowing when one is close to being finished. Soon I have to start some baby knitting since my dog groomer is having her first baby (girl!!). I'm excited to be knitting for a girl, it seems I've been knitting for boys or unisex. I'm looking forward to digging into some pink yarn stash and going at it.
So one of the ways I've been wasteful with my time and I do it frequently is focusing on a snafu that is unsolvable. On Wednesday, my printer would NOT communicate with my computer and I spent hours trying to fix that. The computer can communicate with the printer though. I even called the dreaded tech support who fixed it but then it stopped again. I lost my mind in a swirl of anger and frustration. A big waste of time and I was tired at the end of the day. My husband and I now think it's a microsoft glitch with the computer going to sleep...whatever. I have resolved to not waste time on the issue.
My intention to do yoga on a regular basis has been good, I am most mornings stretching and completing simple routines - productive and good for me!! I've been focusing on how good I feel when I am done and that motivates me to start. The healthy eating is a work in progress, I've compiled some recipes and have ideas for some new dishes. My husband is adventurous in eating and loves when I switch up the routine.
There might be a snow storm this weekend. The predictions are all over the place and as long as I keep my electricity, I hope we get pounded with snow. I have plans to knit, read, drink tea, write some lists and squeeze in some daydreaming. I will not attempt to tackle technology snafus, they are time wasters and deplete my happiness.
