Never enough time

standard October 6, 2010 6 responses

I struggle against it every day. The massive quantity of things I want to be doing against the limited amount of time each day offers.

This past week I’ve finally reached a certain balance between things that must be accomplished and my personal needs – you know: sleep, exercise, time with the family. In fact, I’ve even found myself with a bit of spare time here and there, definitely a novel feeling.

And speaking of novels, I’m even finding time to work on the edits. I’m fixing a chapter or two every day and slowly, but surely, I’m making my way to the end of the book.

I’ve reached a certain balance. A healthy, wholesome balance. 

But the problem with spare time, with exercise, with sleep, is that it gives my brain the downtime to come up with new ideas and projects. When I was over extended and struggling to keep up I barely had the brain capacity to make lists of things that still needed to get done. Now I’m free to dream and invent.

And I keep coming up with so many things I want to be doing. So many great ideas I want to put into practice.

And the downtime? The going to bed early? The taking an evening walk? All of that is lulling me into believing that I have the time to take on a new project. Just a small one. Or maybe a medium one. Or how about that big one over there, the one that could have such a positive impact on so many lives? That one is definitely worth giving up sleep or exercise!

But no. It’s not. Nothing’s worth giving up balance. Is it?

Because that’s the thing. There’s no such thing as a “small” project. There’s no such thing as “It’ll only take an hour or two.” It all threatens the balance one way or another and I’m determined to keep the Year of Awesome completely and utterly awesome.

I need to look at all this like I do shopping. Instead of impulsively diving head first into new projects, I’ll put them on “wish lists.” If I’m still thinking about them a week, two weeks, a month down the road, I’ll re-evaluate the balance and see if something can be shifted or changed to allow for the idea that won’t let go.

In the meantime I’ll try to savor the existing balance and appreciate the free time and the fun my brain is finally enjoying. And I’ll try to remember that life is long and that I’ll have time to get to it all if I just pace myself.

Starting the Year of Awesome on the right foot

My goals were simple: get back to my book and get back on my feet. So far I’m hitting both out of the park.

Monday morning dawned bright, warm, and full of promise. I took the girls to daycare and headed to my favorite Starbucks where I sat down and answered emails, futzed around on Facebook, chatted on Twitter, and finally, finally, opened the file that holds my novel.

I set the timer for 45 minutes and turned off the Internet access to my computer. And then… I started editing.

Getting back into the story, reconnecting with the characters, all of it was heady. I love writing fiction. I love seeing what I’ve written. I love making it even better. I could have kept editing for hours, but my new Gruve activity monitor was buzzing like crazy at my waist, telling me to get up and move

Because yes, I’m also getting off my duff and back on my feet. Monday I started Couch to 5 K from scratch and every evening this week I’ve gone for a walk. I’m using the Gruve to monitor when I need to get up and move. (It buzzes if you’ve been sedentary for more than 45 minutes so that your body doesn’t go into metabolic hibernation.)

It’s only Thursday, but so far so good. The Year of Awesome is off to an encouraging start. It feels great to be back in control of my life and back to doing the things that make me feel good about myself – both in my head and my body. Next time I’m tempted to take on more than I can handle remind me of this moment. OK? Thanks.
