Wakeup

Are you awake right now? I mean, are you fully aware of your surroundings as you read this? Do you have full control over your thoughts? Or is your mind lost in a fog? A misty fog where you’re thinking, but you aren’t really directly into control of your thoughts. As if your thoughts are [...]

The Putting Off Loop

Avoid the Putting off Loop

All of us put things off. I certainly do it. Maybe it’s a bill, maybe it’s a report I need to complete or maybe it’s just contacting someone about something you said you’d do last Tuesday. The thing is, once you’ve started putting something off (once you listen to the lizard voice), the more you [...]

Comm Free Day

I occasionally find myself in the situation where I have a mountain of outstanding work to do, but also in the position where I’m just not getting it done. In fact, a lot of the time, I’m not even tackling it. Instead I find myself procrastinating.. this procrastination comes in many forms. Sometimes it involves [...]

The Problem with Feminism

I for one wish feminism didn’t exist. BUT, before you start sending me notes of hate or death threats. Stop, and listen. The [...]

So earlier, I was watching a video where Madge was dressed as a boy scout, but conveying her upset that she wasn’t actually allowed to be a boy scout. Now that might sound like a rudimentary and obvious thing – it’s called “Boy Scouts”, therefore, why should she be allowed to join? But you see, [...]

This morning I dropped the kids off at school, like I normally do, but for the first time in many months I don’t need to pick them up after school. Today, instead, that job is falling to their Grandma, because they’re going to their Mums for the night. Now, normally I look after my children [...]

Do you ever sit there thinking “Hmmmmm, I’ve got to go out in an hour, I’ll leave this important task for another day”….. I certainly do.

It’s often the case that what we don’t want to do, is exactly what we need to do. Putting these things off, only makes the situation worse.

Thumbnail image for The Stop Doing List & Unmade Decisions

I feel it’s a wholly appropriate time to give myself a stop doing list. You see, I’ve found my myself recently repeating some tasks over and over. Tasks which are neither productive, beneficial or even appealing. But I keep doing them. As an example, I often buy things on eBay for my Nostalgia site. BUT [...]
