Today has been 'one of those days'
I'm sure you know what I mean; a lethargic day where every task seems difficult and where motivation is in sort supply.
I was certainly in no rush to get out of bed this morning and facing the tasks of the day has been done with a large dose of apathy. I was expectinghat by now as the day draws to a close I would have completed very little.
However, I have a secret weapon! I have a Daily Routine which lists the tasks I attempt to complete everyday in an approximate order of importance. On a day like today I simply accept that doing anything that moves my life forward is better than doing nothing even if it is not the most important task. So armed with this philosophy I have steadily been doing the tasks of my Daily Routine and at the close of the day I find that there are significantly more ticks than empty spaces on my Daily Routine.
Some of the important tasks have not been completely but lots of things have been accopmlished. I feel sure that without the tool of a Daily Routine I would have simply drifted through the day and acheived very little, certainly less than I've done today.
Tonight I can go to bed safe in the knowledge that I have had a successful day thanks to a little positive planning. Before I head to bed I have one more task to tick off, writing this blog post!
