You know the feeling you get when you have so much to do that you can’t even get yourself to start doing it? This is how I’ve been feeling lately. I have several tasks that should be done already, today I should pack my bags to be done with it before my trip to Gothenburg to celebrate Easter with my family. And for school, I need to write some assignments and prepare for upcoming courses… well at least I do something useful by writing some content for the website.
When it comes to efficiency, I have always been affected by the close environment. If I’m sitting at a messy table or have a lot of noise around me I often have trouble working. But sometimes a little mess can’t be helped and in fact might be there just because a lot is going on, which would mean that a little mess can be a sign of efficiency. So, even if I like it clean in my proximity a mess once in a while might not be too bad, as long as the resting state is neat.
Soon I will go to a drug test, not because I’ve got any issues but just as a routine check for my workplace. This means that I can’t use the bathroom or drink any water until that’s done, it also means that I haven’t drunk any coffee today. Perhaps that’s what holding me back from working effectively. When I get back from the test I’ll make sure to pack the bags. And perhaps write one of the assignments. But right now I think I’ll take a walk, the sun is shining and I don’t want to miss it.
