I’m a Bit of a Slave to This…Are You?

How’s it going? With all this hubbub surrounding my laptop, there’s another thing I realized that has impacted me (or that I allowed to impact me) that I think relates well to writing itself (as well as productivity).

Let’s get to it.

Sometimes I’ll do a big buildup, and other times I won’t. Today, I’m thinking won’t. I’ve had to adjust certain things to accommodate my limping laptop’s wi-fi (and still haven’t figured things out just yet).

Which made me realize I’m a slave to–routine.

Because without a clear-cut plan, I’m mentally wandering around, trying to figure out what to do next. Or I’m stuck between whether to work out something old or adopt something new (like whether I can fix my laptop on my own, get someone else to, or if I just need to buy a whole new something, even though it’s not quite 3 years old).

That’s also why I have a to-do list (and where the link to writing or the writing world is here). That’s my routine, and now my laptop struggles to handle a couple parts of it.

I’ve also learned to evaluate what’s on the list every so often to figure out if those things are working for me or not. Sometimes I get so used to things, it’s hard for me to change out (unless I’m almost forced to by circumstances or what-have-ya).

I knew I was a slave to routine–this laptop controversy just served to reinforce it.

Tomorrow is Triple F (another routine that I like). Be sure to stop by.

Until next time,
