I realized today that I've been trying to do too much. The Miracle Morning, 12 Week Year, GTD, writing, Habitica, all of it is suddenly no long freeing, it's... turned into a cage. I'm exhausted. I'm stressed over nothing. I can't do this. I can't do it anymore.

So I'm going to stop a lot of it. Some, I'm not sure about. I'll have to see. But some, a lot of it? It's going away. And if it never comes back, that's okay. I've taken off a lot of my tasks, and I'll take off more, on Habitica, and I'm just going to try something less structured.

I don't know if it'll work. I really don't. The more structure didn't, though, and I need to step away, step back, and try something else. Go back to the... well, no, Not back. Because I've learned so much. But I can go forward with some more freedom, and see what I can manage with that.

I don't know what will happen. And that's okay. I guess... it's sort of time to remake myself again. Hopefully, I'll like her better.


So I'm reading "Making it all Work" and wishing I could find my copy of "Getting Things Done," both by David Allen. There's so much in here to unpack and to figure out, and I'm having a hard time finding where to start.

But one thing I did take away from it was this: when doing something you want to focus on (he meant the weekly review, but it holds true for anything), start where your focus is. So. Today, instead of working on the [community profile] whole_new_world fic - never mind that I couldn't get the most recent version to open - I worked on something I've been thinking about doing for a while now. It's turning out not all that great. On the other hand, it is the first draft and therefore is allowed to be crap.

Still, I hope I haven't lost that document, because I will be sad and frustrated and be tempted to give up (again). I'm not sure what the problem is, but it is a problem and I'm ready to kill this Chromebook over it.

So, yeah, that's what is going on with me. Mostly.
