Seems like every time I turn on my computer at home, the minutes pass as quickly as seconds. Before I know it – I need to go to bed and I have achieved very little.
I start with checking my blog emails for the day – and of course I answer every one. Now there aren’t a ton of them but one new one and I am off on my tangents.
I go to their blog and start poking around to see just what they are all about. I may subscribe, I may not. But I can only decide that if I look around. I may comment on some of their posts that are really interesting to me.
Then I check out their Facebook page – again – gotta look at the pictures.
Then I go check them out on Pinterest. And the time starts passing VERY QUICKLY at this point. I poke around their Boards and see what I like. I “pin” what I am interested in; “follow” the Boards I like. But wait!!! I see something they have “pinned” that leads me to someone else’s Board – and WOW that Board is interesting. So I start looking around there following the same process with “pins” and “following”.
This all leads to ending up on more blogs, looking around, subscribing/following, commenting etc…
Before I know it – it is no longer 8pm, it is now 11pm. Just when is the “right” moment to stop and go to bed. But guess what – I haven’t done any projects of my own and I haven’t worked on a post of my own.
This scenario happens almost daily. Then when I do projects and posts I have to do a five day blitz just to catch up or get ahead even a little.
I seriously need about four more hours per day and even that could easily slip right through my fingertips given the right conditions.
