Right now I am reading a book called "Better than Before" by Gretchen Rubin. It has been very interesting! Last night I read a chapter on the benefits of scheduling. Especially for people, like me, who fall into Gretchen's Obliger category. And for people who tend to procrastinate, also like me. I have to admit that scheduling this time to write has actually worked for me so far. I am enjoying it. I have to wonder if scheduling would work so beautifully if it were something I did not enjoy. Like cleaning out the fridge.
Gretchen talked about scheduling time for work, very specific work, as well as play. Schedule your priorities, she says. I found myself wondering how well scheduling works for those with small children. Spencer is getting to the point where I probably can schedule some things and have that schedule work. I know some people and even children do really well with schedules. I have never been able to establish much of a schedule, especially when my kids are involved. Am I too much of a push-over? Just too nice? Too undisciplined? Probably all of those things. I really dislike contention, and so I avoid it! But maybe by avoiding it, I am creating more opportunities for contention. Hmmmm.
I didn't want to be quite so serious today. My goal for tomorrow - write about things I would like to do if I had nothing else to worry or think about. Just little things.
