I tend to over think things – forecasting well into the future all my chess playing options and so trying to simplify one’s life in my head, actually is not as easy as it seems. This week I’ve successfully burnt the bum out of one of my expensive pots, lost a fiddle leaf plant to under watering, confused a crochet workshop date and severely smashed my iphone. And now with no phone in hand, I’m feeling right out of the loop and that I’ve fallen behind.
Generally I tend to overcommit or go off on tangents and start new things. And I really like starting new things, the energy and the thought process. I adore that ideas discovery. This means that instead of having 5 tabs open in my computer I have more like 25. Concentration flits from one idea to another down the rabbit hole getting lost in new page openings. Its really really good if your brainstorming and utterly useless if your trying to catch up on paperwork.
So as daft as it sounds - In order to simplify life I actually just have to finish a few things first, well most things. I need to create space. Really unless there’s a call to action, like I’mgoing to get a monetary fine or miss out on flight or something as equally serious, then I generally think things are ok left up in the air. So this week – while I’m forced off grid from Instagram and pretty much most social media, with my iphone in hospital, I’m going to try and streamline and finish a few in-house projects. Well that’s the plan. Cross fingers
