It Has Been a Long Time…

Sorry about the title – I hope it hasn’t started you singing – unless you like that song – I actually don’t mind it. I am rambling now. You don’t know what I am talking about do you?

In 2001 Enterprise (later Star Trek: Enterprise) was first broadcast. It was rather a shock to some that it had a theme song – and the song began in the way of the title of this post – which has nothing to do with anything it has just been a long time since I have posted here.

I cannot tell you that I have been working on some great project. I have simply been trying to live and deal with the demons in my head. Is that too much hyperbole? It might be. Sometimes I wish they were actual demons at least then I could learn martial arts and beat them up – maybe.

This post is going into strange places.

One thing I have done is create a shinny new spreadsheet! I know. I know. Some people create beautiful art.

Can I make a spreadsheet exciting to you? Probably not, but it is what is on my mind.

The spreadsheet is for tracking what I am doing day-to-day. I have tried various apps and so many different ways it has driven me crazy but doing it myself might actually work.

Productivity is something I have always struggled with. If I am doing one thing I am worried I am not doing another thing. Isn’t that kind of crazy?

For me the key to being productive is to engineer the feeling of achievement. Having a spreadsheet tell me that the job is done is as good a way as any. And a spreadsheet doesn’t have notifications all the time.

How do you get your stuff done?

My parents have said that me having this issue is good. Why? Because it means that there are things I want. There are things I can strive for and that is always a good thing. (Even if starting is so much easier than finishing)

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
