How do you think things through? You know, the big plans of life or what to cook for dinner or how to re-decorate your bedroom or what to wear today? What is your process? Do you make lists, think about it all in silence, project boards, pin it all on Pinterest, talk about it until everyone around you runs away screaming from you because they can’t talk about it one more time? I do all of those things in some form or another.
I’m also big on trying and seeing what happens. This writing project is a combination of of many ways I process getting from point A to point B and beyond. I love to talk about my plans, but lately I’m in this season of life where I don’t see my friends as often as I’d like or when we do see each other we are doing something that does not lend itself to long personal conversations. So I write and talk to my husband, who while he does his best, the repetition gets to him.
At any rate, I’ve yet to write out the BIG LIST. Alternatively this could be called a “brain dump” list, where I write down every single little thing that needs to be done to make IT happen. I haven’t started the list, and I mean started, because in my experience it is never really finished. A few reasons I’ve yet to make the list include: it is scary, I like to check things off lists, I’m keeping busy doing the easy things, if I commit it to the list it might happen, a list will help me succeed or not, it is scary.
Last week I started to look into podcasting and laptops. I thought it would be straightforward. It’s not. Part of the problem is not knowing what needs to come first. I suppose writing it down and making a list would be helpful, wouldn’t it? I think that will be today’s task. Until tomorrow then….
