On my recent break, I planned on getting a lot done. While nice in theory, the reality was that I did not accomplish nearly what I'd hoped.
Can anyone relate?
About halfway through the break, this thought crossed my mind:
I Could Get More Writing Done if Only I...
- Didn't eat
- Didn't sleep
- Ignored email
- Ignored social media
- Didn't clean the house
- Never had an interruption
Okay, so maybe that's being a little unrealistic. Instead, I'm thinking a healthy dose of realistic goals, self discipline, and grace play a big role here. What do you think?
