When Does Found Time Calculate into Lost Time?

July 1, 2006 by debbie T | Ramblings

Unfortunately, I have been neglecting my Splash of Style blog, and I am not sure why.

For the last month and half, the company that employees me part time (in real life) has been undergoing renovations that could last another 2 to 3 months (maybe longer.) When I initially realized I had an opportunity for extra time off (with full salary pay) I was thrilled. Here was a chance to do all the things I never had time to do.

* Learn more advanced CSS techniques
* Author a book
* Create a WordPress or Expression Engine theme
* Write more tutorials
* Read the design books stacked on my desk

So what have I accomplished in the last month and half? I should have plenty of time to create articles, work on designs, and let my creativity flow. But I have nothing substantial to show for my time.

Instead I neglected my own blog, along with being behind listening to my favorite podcasts and reading my favorite blogs. When (and why) did my new found time calculate into lost time?

After some additional soul searching, I aim to stop my Attention Deficit ways, and find a fun project or two. Buckle down and not waste this glorious opportunity.

Thanks for listening.
