|complete with personal neurosis|
|Also works for when you happen to decide you must go bunny shopping instead of everything else on your "to do" list|
The glimmer of hope is that sometimes I have fantastic productivity surges and I am able to accomplish nearly everything I want to, until reality crashes the party. Then I get caught in guilt and shame spirals where I beat myself up and it only makes it harder to do anything because I feel so crappy and I feel helpless against my unreasonable un-productivity. I'll give you an example. I really don't like doing dishes. Normally I just do them anyway, and push through and pretend I'm a real and responsible grown-up. (Or I totally jam out to loud music to make it fun.) But sometimes, such as some unspecified three days last week, they unsuspectingly pile up to incomprehensible levels that may or may not contain every single bowl and utensil in my entire house and it becomes so awful and overwhelming that I will mean to do them, and constantly try to start, and feel completely awful that I haven't, but I'm never actually able to do it. For three days people! That is just super gross. This is an extreme case, yes.. but sometimes the worse the problem, the harder it is to face. But the more I actually do get done, when I finally break do break out of my stupor, is fantastic and encouraging. The hope is that productivity is contagious. So maybe it is possible to slowly turn my weaknesses into strengths. Eventually.
And since I already re-formatted this goal/"to do"/productivity-planner/page/list/thingie for myself, why not share, if it could be useful to others. So here you are. Just click on the image and save it to your computer, and then you can print it out with whatever program you have that prints .jpg files. So if you happen have my particular brand of crazy, you are welcome to make use of it.* Or alternately you can use it like a regular planner, if you are normal and your grown-up-ness isn't broken. You're welcome. I make no guarantees as to its efficacy. That part is up to you.
|*Just don't be mean and try and sell it or things made from it, ok. But that is just common sense and decency, right?|
