How do you focus to get done what you need to do? How do you choose what to do next? What if you're overwhelmed and pulled in different directions? Career, family and friend obligations, housework, yard work, pets, appointments, etc....How do you keep it all going and get the most done possible? When I have so much that needs done, I feel almost paralyzed. Any ideas that work for you?

I do make lists all the time, often a list from previous lists for the next day.LOL.Sometimes,though,there are unpleasant things that I don't want to do or Imjust too overwhelmed w/everything, the same things keep going on the backburner.What then?
Ah! Ye old' back burner. That right there is my main issue. When I started making my lists, I saw a pattern of me putting the SAME things on the next day's list. It woke me up. And, then I realized, like Daughter of Maat said, I need to do those firs
Great idea, Marlene! If it's on the backburner long enough, it needs to finally go to the front burner. :-) With that said, I really need to go build that cat tree I've been trying to finish for 2 years! LOL
Awesome ideas, DOM! I don't have anyone to help me unless I pay them. :-( The notebook sounds great. What are the names of your hubs? I want to read them. Thanks!
Ineresting, Lizam1! I wonder if that is why a timer for 15 minutes works for my housework? 15 mins in a room--I can get a lot done w/a timer on. Looking forward to your hub on organic energy!
We're two peas in a paralyzed pod, Effer! I feel this way the time! Or maybe I'm just lazy.No, I really like to piddle around with stuff but need to be a whirlwind moving from one project to another--like my mom! Hopefully we'll get our answers! Help
I'm on the computer b/c I write on the computer--LOL.I hate the phone so no problem there. I don't watch much TV except for a break at night.I'm alone most of the day (minding my own business!) but still get overwhelmed w/all there is do.
