I love my job. I left my corporate job in June to do freelance graphic design and web design. I had a number of contracts lined up so I felt fairly confident that it was a reasonable decision. It has had its ups and downs but it’s working out.
I usually get so lost in what I do that the hours just fly by.
Today I had to switch gears from a really fun project to one that I felt less confident about. Immediately I thought, “I’m thirsty. I’m hungry. My lips are dry. The house needs vacuuming. I need to do some yoga. My makeup needs doing.” I actually addressed several of these needs before finding myself up at my desk again staring at a powerpoint I wasn’t sure what to do with.
My dog is lonely. I’m sure of it. I should go talk to her. I bet I would feel more like working if I vacuumed the house. There are hairballs everywhere. I wonder if I could restyle my hair…..”if I start writing now, when I’m not really rested, it could upset my thinking, which is not good at all…I could get a fresh start tomorrow/.I work best under pressure/There’ll be lots of pressure/ If I wait til tomorrow. …….”
