I Shouldn't Complain....


I've had a lot of things on my mind that I want to work on for my store(s), especially with Saturday Market season coming up! Only problem has been that they've all been in my mind, and I haven't written anything down. This produces a irrational panic and feeling of being completely overwhelmed because I don't really know what needs to get done! So this evening I finally sat down and made a list.

I'm still a little overwhelmed.

Right now there are 7 things on that list, several of which are going to take me a good amount of time. I used the sticky notes feature on my desktop to create my list so it's easy to find, easy to add to, and easy to delete from. I think that's one reason I hadn't written things down before, it's going to take a least a couple of weeks to get through it all (with the way my health goes) and that's a long time for me to keep a piece of paper without losing it!

So here I am, a little overwhelmed, but feeling focused and ready to get started on my projects :) And I really shouldn't complain - because this is what it means to be building a small business!

Glad you are feeling focused and ready to tackle your projects! Hope everything goes smoothly now that you are organized once again.

It always helps me to write (or type) things down too. A list helps keep you a little more organized...and we all know we could use as much of that as we can get :)

From the brain to the work table. It is a process and when the time is right you will sit down and accomplish.

I agree that a great way to stay focused and calm is to write down your thoughts/sketches. Good luck getting your projects done!
