So far, so good...


How is it that when I work from home, I get little done? When I have all three children at school, and those hours are mine, I laibour slowly. Dull chores are always put off until tomorrow and I procrastinate over everything?

And how is it when I am studying full time, we are all eating better and having more fun and things get done more efficiently?

I do not get it.

I am glad though.

I once worked for a wise gentleman - he owned a beautiful hotel that I worked in as a teen - he told me that the more we do, the busier we get, the more energy we get. The momentum gathers, and the more we do, the more we want to do.
I think he was right.

I was terrified that I would not cope with house, kids, husband and work as well as study. Scared and nervous for myself and for the kids. The state of the house and the laundry has a direct and usually detrimental impact upon my mood. I was nervous.

But instead it is all working. Working well. Time seems to expand to allow us to get it all done. We are all happy. I am happy.

So far, so good...

  1. I absolutely agree! I can work a full time job plus extra work from home and still manage the kids, house and cooking. Give me a break and everything falls in a heap.

    A woman said to me recently "If you want a job done give it to a busy woman". Made perfect sense to me!

  3. I can relate to a degree - have never been busier but also seemingly able to overcommit on top. Though I still cant quite get my head around having no time to clean my house as I did but guess that is not the be all and end all of existence, right?

    Keep setting the pace Lucy xx

  4. Well done Lucy. I think it takes time to get into a rhythm working from home. I know I can get stuck and feel unmotivated and then all of a sudden I find my mojo and get stuck into it. Some days are obviously better than others too!

  5. I'm so happy that you're happy and things are working well with all you have on.

    I'm exactly the same - 6 months of procrastinating and only the threat of an interstate move via a caravan trek around the country in a week has seen the return of my mojo. I need serious pressure to get myself out of a funk but it somehow works........
