Monthly Archives: August 2010

The past six months have been pretty good.  I’m getting the work done, but my work habits have not progressed beyond “passable.”  July in particular was a set-back.  For some reason, I got almost nothing done.  Maybe because I knew I was ahead for the year (I’m not anymore).  Maybe because there was a lot going on in my avocational pursuits – I had a concert to plan for my band, for example.  But it’s not like I didn’t have time to work on those things outside of work hours.

I need to get back on the wagon, and remember that “it’s all my time.”  I could make a decent living working 4 hours per day, and put the rest of my time towards things that I say are important to me.  Up til now, if you had statistics on how I spend my time, you’d think that Facebook, Youtube and email are the things I hold most dear.

Procrastination.  Grave.  Opportunities.

I have to remind myself of a few things:

  • I don’t get paid for sitting at my desk, I get paid for doing the work.
  • I can finish the work early and spend the rest of the day however I want, guilt-free.
  • It’s all my time.
  • I have plenty of time between 9am and 5pm to make a living, keep fit, practice bass and write games, if only I would take an organized and disciplined approach to my time!  *kicks self in ass*

Time to get to work.
