The windmills of my mind…

This is off of the VickiChristmas theme…

Why is it, when I have the most wonderful job in the world, that so often I find myself just staring at the computer. Not getting a blasted thing done. I don’t understand how my whole psyche goes into neutral so easily, and I become a veg. Today has been a pretty good day – not moving the whole earth, but definitely more than a shovel or two.

I’m really wrestling with how a right-brained, visually oriented goober such as myself deals with the left-brained, confusing world of project management. How do I get my job functions into a form that I not only can use, but can continue to use.

My 3×5 cards have been the closest I’ve come to having a system, but sometimes they too get lost in the fog that is my head. I use my Palm for my calendar, addresses, and (of course) games and music. My phone is mostly contacts and numbers. But none of them really take hold in my mind to help me keep on top of what I’m supposed to be doing.

Do I sound like a whiney 20-something? Shouldn’t I have this figured out at 46 years of age? DOH!

I have the greatest job in the world. And, it’s not just work – it’s my calling. Need to keep my eyes on that, and off of the details that I get buried in. At the end of the day, if just one kiddo has come closer to trusting Jesus or been encouraged to live for Him by His Kids Radio, that’s a good day.

And, that’s why I have the greatest job in the world. Note to self: Remember that!!!

    Are you implying that 20-somethings are whiney? I don’t think I like that. That just isn’t a nice implication. I’m going to tell on you….

    I am implying that 20-somethings are whiney. So are 10-somethings, 0-somethings, 30-somethings, 40-somethings, and even up to 90-somethings and beyond.

    However, because of their stage of life, and because of how the current generation tends to react to those changes, well, unfortunately, the 20-somethings tend to whine the loudest sometimes. Not their fault – they’re just victims, after all. 😀
