I really took a lot of time off. I don’t think that I got my shit together in that time.
I’m still procrastinating but I’m over the feeling of doing nothing. I haven’t coded like I use to in so long that I think I need to start over learning everything. I haven’t looked at a wireframe.
I think about coding and occasionally I sit at my laptop and nothing gets done. Really. I only use my laptop to code. So if I don’t code, my laptop doesn’t get turned on, and if my laptop doesn’t get turned on, it doesn’t update as often as it should and if it’s trying to update when I use it, I can’t code during that time period because I only have 2 GB of RAM. So once I realize that my laptop is updating, I simply just shut it down, so it can update. You win Windows 10.
I think I got to the point where I just didn’t want to do anything. My laziness kicked in and I just prefer to not do anything.
I haven’t even finished my online coursework, yet. Luckily for me, I can just enroll in a new class every time I get behind. But this is also the reason I haven’t finished. No real deadline.
- Maybe I was getting overwhelmed or bored.
- Maybe I had too much on my plate at that time.
- Maybe I lost my motivation.
So I’m completely changing my schedule for doing things until it works and continues to work.
I’m going to to try block scheduling. It’s something I haven’t tried. So I’m going to see if it can help me. I’m also going to commit to my BUJO. This is a creative way to schedule my day and think in terms of goals and other things that need to be done. I count BUJO as a small creative outlet.
Once I figure out the best way and time to do everything, I will refer back to an article I wrote about getting stuff done. I should read it every time I feel like I’m starting off wrong.
