My normal schedule of things has me posting on this blog on the 1st and 15th of every month. Unfortunately, real life did not conform to my schedule, and so this post is a day late.
It's not the only thing that has me running like crazy to catch up. In my last post I said I was going to do my Kickstarter this month. After much reflection on how much work is left to be done, I've decided to postpone it until June. I want it to be good, and that's more important than it being done in April.
I'm also a judge for a writing contest and need to step up my reading speed if I'm to get all of the entries read in time. The coordinator graciously extended the deadline (we got three additional books on short notice) so I'm taking advantage of that.
I get frustrated when I fall behind. Part of my problem is that there is SO MUCH to do that I get paralyzed trying to pick one thing from all of it. At that point, none of it gets done. Plus, I have ADD (look, squirrel!) and it causes me to get easily distracted.
I'd love to hear from you how you deal with falling behind. What do you do when you have a huge list of things to do to make sure SOMETHING gets done? How do you know when to work on catching up and when to simply reschedule? I'm curious.
That's it for now. I'll see you in May!
