I need to get my Sh*t together
This extends outside of my writing too. I used to go to the gym often. I felt amazing when I was going, I was happy with myself and then I stopped going. Now everyday and I'm not kidding, everyday, I say I'm going to the gym tomorrow. Guess what? I never go. Every paycheck I tell myself to put money into savings and I never get around to doing it.
Then there's my TBR list. I have so many books I want to read. And I own most of them yet I never read them. Why? That's a really good question.
I psych myself up into writing, reading, working out and then when it comes time to actually do it, I don't and then I get depressed and upset with myself for not doing it. I'm sick of it! What is wrong with me? Does anyone else do this?
I've decided I'm going to get my sh*t together. Today is the day I start. I'm going to get organized. I'm going to set realistic goals for myself and actually stick to them. I'm going to create structure in my life and go back to the days when I followed through with everything.
I liked myself more back then. I felt accomplished. It's a great feeling and I miss it.
Do you have a schedule you stick to in order to get word count in? Read a certain amount of books a month?
