I need a vacation… from me.

So here I sit, 10:30 in the morning, still in a bathrobe and slippers.  I would be dressed, but in addition to work I’ve been getting two keyers ready to ship.  I have half a dozen orders that need to get packed and mailed, email to be answered, and still need ot make a complete run through of the new keyer firmware to make sure all the debugging and diagnostic stuff is pulled and all the features work. On top of that I have 50 boards that need to be prepped for assembly…  in less than 2 weeks the magazine ad will hit peoples’ mailboxes, which means I need to do some serious assembly work by then.  I’m still trying to get the basement de-junked so Lisa can use what should be her sewing area.  The new antenna still isn’t up, need to order the support line and insulators.  I’ve got a piece of desk that needs finishing.  Haven’t been to the gym in two weeks, again, and that’s not good.  The list goes on, and on, and on.

This has been a pattern for – well, as long as I can remember.  I must have a damn short attention span or something, seems like everything gets about half done.  On the bright side, I think I have every Friday off from now to the end of the year, courtesy of my new employer’s crappy PTO carryover policy.  Maybe I can get enough stuff finished to get to a more or less normal life again.

  1. Quit worrying about what needs to be done. Make an actual list on paper so you don’t crowd your thoughts. Then you’ll be able to concentrate on one thing at a time and actually finish tasks on your list. It works. I promise.
