I thought of ‘cheating’ with my blog today. I scrolled through my archived posts, looking for the perfect re-blog. I had “Productivity Derailed” in mind because that is my state of mind today. As I clicked the appropriate buttons to make the magical technology fairies re-blog my chosen ramblings, I started to re-read the post. It spoke of snowflakes, and Christmas gifts, snuggling down with a book under a blanket…..the wind was sucked out of my lazy sails!
I can’t, in good conscience, re-blog a favorite excerpt on a hot, muggy, summer day. A day that started too late. A day that requires yoga pants at the office. A day that is of my own creating. I was not distracted by softly falling snow. I was not enjoying my cup of hot tea, under a blanket, ensconced in my warm home.
So I will attempt to boost my productivity. I will not take the easy route with my tasks today. I will not re-blog a wonderful memory of a winter day. I will keep my motivation moving with new, fresh, thoughts. I know that my less-than-stellar days will be surrounded with productive days.
I am continually reminded of how easily I can be distracted and how well I rebound from those distractions. Have a productively happy day!
Travel well my friends!
