Swing of Things

Sometimes it’s very hard for me to stick with habits. I have a big problem with starting something and not being able to finish it.

So far this year, I’ve pledged to change my life in uncountable ways, with only one thing sticking: staying clean. I’ve been clean now for 105 days, and still going strong.

This is an unsettling thought to me, but something that is quite obviously a problem. I don’t know what to do to change my habit of creating and losing new habits, but I truly have the desire to.

So many things are piling up for me, and really do require weekly if not daily diligence in order to complete them. I’ve been using different productivity tools to start to get things listed so that I can become better organized and try to finally Get Things Done.

The book Getting Things Done has been a great inspiration lately, but as usual, I’m having issues completing the book, even though I know that I will probably read it more than once. It seems like there’s always something getting in the way of changing my habits for the better.

I say that something always gets in the way, but most of the time it’s because I over-think everything. I spend way too much time conceptualizing, and spend way too little time actually doing things.

I’m not sure what to do, but eventually I hope to get out of this funk.
