Throughout my life, I've always been organized, positive, cheerful, optimistic, goal-oriented, and determined. I have also always been slow, indecisive, a path-of-least-resistance kind of person, and bad with time. My husband says I would be late to my own funeral. So I'm going to use my being slow to my advantage. I'm going to get more organized and write up a plan, which will include long-term goals and projects, short-term goals to reach those projects, a schedule, and a positive mantra.
Here's my plan. Since being bad with time seems to be fighting against my very core of existence lately, and I really want to achieve balance and focus, I have developed a mantra. It is based on the timeless wisdom, "Early to bed, early to rise; makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." So my new policy, in jingle form, is...
Asleep in the bed by ten or eleven; Up and at 'em by six or seven.I will begin tonight, so I only have 50 minutes left to write. And I'm working my butt off. I was up till 3 AM, so I slept a lot today. I did work on organizing a Church notebook for Sunday for an hour and a half. So at least I feel like I accomplished something. It really needed to be done, as I had been working on it and putting it off for about two weeks. I really feel like going to bed early, and waking up early, truly will ensure that I get enough sleep, AND have plenty of energy to work more efficiently. I hope my hypothesis tests positively.
