Before this GOE idea came along, my method of getting things done was very simple:
Do what I want, when I want, for as long as I want.
My life was a series of "Keep-Me-Busy's"...and I got stuff I wanted to do done, for the most part.
With the huge range of interests I have it's not hard to have stuff to do to keep me busy.
But lately I feel like I am not getting anything done, and my desire to do things has gone out the window.
I think the more I think about getting things done, and try to get more done, the less I am actually accomplishing.
All this making and defining goals and putting things in writing...making lists of things that I don't even know what to put on the lists...it's frustrating me...and making me very unhappy.
Before all this started, my main goal in life was to not be bored...everything I did was to fulfill that goal...and it worked well for me, I think.
I wasn't bored...and I was about as happy as I could get, all things considering.
Now I have the attention span of a cat and feel quite depressed.
My email is backing up, my projects are not getting done, I am 3 pages behind in unread forum posts here, I have produced no new art, my doodle pad is blank, and all I want to do is sleep.
Maybe I already had the method that worked best for me and just didn't know it.
Maybe I need to stop all this and go figure out how I was doing it before and go back to it, because this just isn't working at all. It is having the opposite effect of what it was intended to do.
I miss my old more productive life.
