March was not a good month for multiple and obvious reasons. I haven’t completed any of the goals I had set for myself during my last challenge update. I did, after years of hesitation, finally make the time to upload all of my blog photos to WordPress and delete my Photobucket account; but that’s about it. So, yay me. Despite having all day to write, I’m still having trouble motivating myself to get something done. Why? I have no idea. It’s very irritating. Part of the problem, I think, is focus. I get distracted very easy. Each morning I make a list of all the things I want to do that day, and most of the time I complete it, but timing is not my strong suit. As you know, I like to procrastinate. I’ve also noticed my planning skills have taken a temporary hiatus. I’ve only been able to write about topics that appeal to me within that twenty-four hour period. Any agenda that I did have disappears in an instant.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you’re probably sick of hearing it by now, but I need to get my act together. The blog’s tenth anniversary is approaching quickly. June 28th will be here before you know it. Within these next couple of months I really want to write some top-notch posts. To be successful, I’m going to have to switch things up a bit. I need to avoid Twitter and my television at all costs until my daily blog post is complete. I’m going to pivot all my attention to writing, to improving my skills. I know what I want to accomplish, but I’m not going to make any more promises. I’ve learned my lesson. Instead, I’m going to ignore all the negative energy around me and keep moving forward.
