I’ve seen the difference between planning my day and going with the flow. Neither works best, but a fine balance between the two takes the cake.
There are things that are in my control and those that aren’t. This one sentence took some before I believed in it. What I can control goes into my planner and what I can’t, I make space for by not over-planning.
It sounds like a formula, however, each day is really a new one as it requires a different level of adaptability. No two days are the same.
So, I picked out a pattern for myself using general blocks of time where I work, study and workout, leaving the rest to the universe. When it works out, it’s all in a day’s work and I love that 24 hours can be so full. On the flip-side, when I lose time because one of the things I can’t control is my tendency to overthink, it’s a never-ending or barely-there day, which feel like a stuck tape. There you were just listening to Side A and it jumbles itself before you get to Side B.
That’s also an excuse no one wants to believe, so you tell whomsoever it may concern that you were busy, sick or tired instead. Since the next day’s a new one, you wake up and try again.
Here I am trying again. How are you doing, Dreamers?
