Worse than that I had a week of it. One day this week I didn’t get a thing started until 11:00 or 12:00A
and the rest of the day I just couldn’t get started on a thing and finish what I started. FOCUS ! FOCUS !
Last week I was a day off, That didn’t start until Wednesday and Tuesday I thought it was Wednesday and the rest of the week I was a day behind, then this week I was suppose to meet with someone Thursday at 4:30 pm and forgot all about it until 9:00pm Oops ! Guess old age is catching up with me or maybe I’m working to many hours or it’s been to long since the last Vacation, or it could be I’m missing something with life.
JOB, check got one. Truck, check got one, Motorcycle, check got one, House, check got one,Woodworking tools and machinery, check got them. Don’t have or want a cat or dog. Kid is grown up, 32 years old.

Cheer up. We all end up the same way. At the end of the week I say CRAP that week went by quick !
FOCUS
Each week has seven days.
FOCUS
Each day follows the other the SAME every time
FOCUS
Tomorrow is always the day after the night before
FOCUS
Don’t leave things till tomorrow, tomorrow never comes,things will not get done.

I found that when I get like that, the best thing I can do is sit down and write a LIST. Now I know it sounds stupid, but if I didn’t write things down, I would forget so many things. I list even the smaller and every day types of things some days and not only does it help me stay organized, but it feels great to cross each thing off (no matter how small) as I accomplish the task. Then too I can look at the end of the day and see that I really did something.

When I was overdosed on Topamax, lists didn’t do any good. Couldn’t remember what I was thinking long enough to make one, if I had one, I couldn’t remember where it was! Those were the days!!
