As a creative person I find my self constantly distracted from my goals. Distracted by what I think are really great ideas. Like right now. One if my goals is balance between work and personal life. I have dinner plans with my husband tonight. My wonderful inlaws are coming over to watch my kiddos. The kitchen is a mess. I have to clean the kitchen so I can have dinner ready, my in laws can be successful watching my kids and I can have a nice dinner with my husband. A menial task the greatly impacts my big picture goals.
But it’s Saturday afternoon, the sun is out on this false spring day, 2 kids are sleeping one is quietly cleaning her room. All I want to do is sit in the sun and read. But I am staying focused on my big picture goal and going back to clean this kitchen.
