I guess we all make lists. It helps us determine a hierarchy in the tasks before us, and of course it gives such satisfaction when we drop into bed at night with the whole list ticked off – OK, I admit that doesn’t happen as often as I’d like, but enough for me to remember how good it feels.[blank]
In this age of technology, the very machines that are meant to be saving us time, can also prove very clever at wasting it too! You know what I mean …. come on, admit it. You go on line to check the price of a flight, or the address of a store, and an hour later find yourself reading blogs or watching videos of dancing cats on You Tube!
I’m sure that I procrastinate more than I ever used to. Maybe it’s just laziness, but it is definitely more and more easy to find an alternative to the ‘task at hand’.[blank]
[blank]It doesn’t feel like I’m lazy though. In fact I’d probably describe myself as a workaholic ….hmmm … did I just write that?!
So for fun I have devised a little test to see how organised/driven/busy we all are, maybe you’ll tell me how you do:[blank]
Also, as mother to four children close in age, I tended to prefer a house that felt lived in and comfortable, than a picture perfect show home, but I have to admit that some people get the balance better than others.
My thinking is that all this is a question of genes rather than effort, but I’d love to know what you think.
Hey! here’s a thought: … ‘Martha organises My French Country Home’, now what a blog post that would be!
