Yesterday I had every intention to enter wedding contracts into my new online office manager, clean my apartment, start reading this book that has been collecting dust since last Summer and rent a movie. Well, none of those things happened. You want to know the main reason? Not only was I snowed/iced in my apartment and literally couldn’t leave, the internet distracted. Yep, that’s my reason. The internet. It’s so easy to let distractions get in the way of running your own business, and life for that matter. Sometimes I’ll be working on a project or editing and then all of a sudden I get this urge to click on the Safari icon in my dock and surf the net. More specifically Pinterest, Facebook and YouTube. If there was a medal that you could win for the most time wasted on the internet I’d probably win that.
So today I’m making it a point to get something done around this tiny apartment. I’m blogging, getting ready to start on my “to do” list and later this evening I’ll be taking pictures for the local newspaper at my hometown’s basketball regional game. And so what if distractions get in the way sometimes. The way I look at it, I’m living and everything that needs to get done eventually gets done one way or another.
