In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

Start where I’m at

I’m trying to be realistic with my starting point. I’ve had times in the past where I’ve tried to clean the whole house in a week or run 2 miles after not running.

I tend to start where I want to be not where I’m at. Then I get frustrated and feel its not worth it and give up until I have surplus of enthusiasum. Then the process starts again. It happens with me especially when I knew I was doing it before and got out of the habit.

I think it is the difference between long term and short term goals.  The other factor is not wanting to ignore any area.   I’ve  focused my efforts on one area of my life—fitness, work, house, personal, etc—only to have the other areas slip.

So I’m trying to be kind to myself and accept where I’m at and find one baby step I can do.
