what if you were being watched?
My first thought: OMG, I would be mortified. It's not that I don't get stuff done throughout my day. I do. I am busy and productive and blahblahblah, but I also have this amazing ability to piddle my day away doing not much at all. I don't even watch TV, but between my Google Reader, Facebook, and Twitter, there's a lot out there online to waste the day away with.
The ironic thing about this is that I have so many things I WANT to do, plans I WANT to complete. I have more stuff to work on now that I ever have before. Projects and ideas that I'm excited about. That I can't wait to get started on. But, somehow I keep finding myself not quite having enough time to get it all going, to get that ball rolling.
After recovering from my supreme embarrassment of the thought of you guys watching a video of me waste my day away, I decided to take on my procrastination head-on. I empowered myself to stop being embarrassed and actually fix it. Wow! What a concept!
Therefore, my online time is going to be cut severely back. I'm going to refocus on things I want to get done and actually start taking action. I'm going to walk away from the computer and actually start living my life. Balance is needed, and I'm going to find it.
Later this week, I'll also be revisiting my Dream Big in 2009 plan. But for now, let me ask you: if your typical day was being recorded, what would we see? Is there anything you would change about how you're living your life? Anything besides making sure your hair was always brushed and your lips glossed?
