School was always my thing. I was that kid who would come home from school, sit down at the table, take out my homework and get to work. It’s just what I did. I liked the structure. I liked the routine. I liked seeing something through to the end. Call me a nerd, call me a geek, whatever. I worked hard, I got shit done, and I loved every minute of it.
During these formative school years I learned something about myself—I am not a juggler, by any means. Partly because I have zero eye-hand coordination, but mostly because I just don’t have the mental capacity to be thinking about a million things all at once. I am, however, a routine-a-holic. I’m an organize, schedule, execute kind of girl. Rinse. Repeat. That's not to say I don't like me a little spontaneity, but when it comes to work and the day-to-day stuff, you can bet I'm all about that routine-life! Lists and schedules are pretty much my best friends.
I was probably so self-motivated when it came to school because the routine was simple. I went to class, I did the studying, I did the homework, I knew and did what needed to be done. Straightforward. Easy. Routine-heaven.
Now that I’m a side-hustling, work-at-home creative entrepreneur I’m starting to feel a little like a juggler again and I’m dropping those balls left and right.
I have no routine yet, no schedule. I have no idea what needs prioritizing because most days I’m still figuring out what the heck it is I’m supposed to be doing. Basically, I’m flying by the seat of my (yoga) pants. I’m juggling. I’m getting things done. But dang is my schedule-addicted brain freaking out! Hmm, like kind of a lot.
But it’s okay. I am going to figure this crap out because I have the drive to do so. I am going to figure out a schedule. A routine that allows me some down time (for sanity purposes), that allows me to make my family and friends a priority, that allows me to get shit done and still enjoy the ride. I am going to figure out a routine because, well, it’s just what I do.
