If only I had more time…

Am I the only one who feels like there is not enough time in a day to accomplish everything there is to be accomplished?

Or maybe that’s just my problem. I can’t seem to focus on just one thing at a time and get that done… Instead I jump from project to project, completing a little here and a little there. I’ve tried To-Do lists, I’ve tried Sticky Notes, I’ve tried minimalistic interfaces, and a whole bunch of other things that are supposed to limit distractions… but no matter what I do I can’t stop my brain from thinking up new and great ideas that I want to work on now!

If only I had more time… Of course in order for this idea to work, I would have to be the only person with that extra time in the day, because if this extra time was available to everyone then the standards of the world would just increase to meet the new time restraints and we’d back to where we were. It’s kind of like how raising minimum wage doesn’t really help anyone, it just increases inflation and hurts the people who had worked so hard to get raises up and away from minimum wage…

So what I want/need is a time increase for just me. And since that will never happen, I suppose I need to find a way to focus and be more productive.

Help Me!

While normally I only post about “Antidotes” or solutions to problems I have come up with, I’m stumped here. So I’m asking you — people of the interwebs — to help me!

If you have a solution to my problem, post a comment below or tweet me (@alexsantidote). Thanks!

  1. Alex have you ever heard the saying you have to make time to take time? I highly recommend that you schedule some time for yourself to do something you love! Take at least 20 minutes a day to be silly again. Reconnect with what ever it is that brings you joy!
    Let me know if this helps and we can work on your distractions 🙂
