Have you ever had one of those days? Those unproductive/why did I even leave the house kind of days? Well that's the kind of day I had today, and I blame my Passion Planner. Not really, I actually think that thing is awesome, I'm just good at overwhelming myself. Let me explain to you how the last half of my day has gone...
12pm: It's HERE! My Passion Planner! Hi new best friend, the apple of my eye, the french to my fry! I will fill you with happiness and you will solve all of my problems! I will take you to Panera and together we will be the greatest team!
12:15: This pen is so awesome! I love this planner! I love Panera!
12:30: I have written down lots of ideas. This must mean I'm smart!
12:35: Hmm...This sure is a lot of stuff...
12:36: Ah here it is. The truth. It's obvious now. You're not smart. You're stupid. There's no way you're going to get all of this done. Also, who were you kidding getting an apple with this sandwich? Where are the chips? I hate you.
12:40: Okay let's break this down into little bite size pieces. Don't overwhelm yourself! You got this.
12:45: Let's look at Instagram. Look at that artist, he really knows what he's doing. How did he learn how to know what he's doing?
1:00: Get off of Instagram!
1:10: Okay, NOW get off Instagram!
1:15: I stopped! Good job, me. Okay back to planning. Passionately Planning!
1:30: I really should have been done mapping out my life by now, right? *Crunch* this apple stinks.
1:32: You did it! There's a map for Thursday and Friday. You will accomplish these things or feel the guilt of an uncrossed-off-task, that's the worst guilt there is.
1:35: Let's go home Passion Planner, you're pissing me off.
2:00: Home! Let's do Thursday's task! Lets see...To increase productivity you will clean your work area, start in one spot so you don't get overwhelmed. Let's divide the space into stations, this will be the Shipping Station! yeah that'd be cute and fun to do! Let's make that happen. But first, let's get some music going!
Happy Thursday friends! Wishing you a much, much more productive day than me :)
