You know, you'd think that starting fresh for the New Year would leave me fresh and renewed and at least a little less insecure than usual, but alas... No.
What's the problem? Oh, it's an old one. I have it frequently...
Namely, the sheer staggering amount of items I have on my to-do list. Except this year is worse. Why?
Last year, I kept track of my list with a diary and pens, which meant that I had at most 20 tasks on a given day. But I switched to Trello last year, which is the same thing, except digital, which means I can set myself an unlimited amount of tasks.
And it seems like my life has taken it upon itself to meet that challenge.
On January 1st, I cleaned up all my lists, starting from scratch with only my goals as a starting point.
Then I started adding the little tasks I have to do from day to day. And added... and added.
And in two days, my list of things I need to do today shot up from 0 to 30. Count them. 30 items.
*Cue maniacal laughter*
To be fair, I can shift a lot of them out to other days, but for some reason, I'm just not getting to the ones I deem to be essential, like having to spend at least 20 minutes today on editing my book. I literally can't figure out where I'm going to squish that in yet.
And this is supposed to be a day off.
How are you doing? Do you also feel like 2018 is starting like an avalanche?
