This challenging question comes from: 

The Gathering Room ~ Question of the Week – AllThingsHomeSchool

 

After much honest thought to myself my answer is:

Procrastination – I do all sorts of things to procrastinate – and they are all good.

I plan lessons (we rarely achieve these lessons!)

I retype our schedule (sometimes this is helpful but usually the chaos happening behind my office chair is worse!)

I talk on the phone (filling an emotional need that my messes are making worse!)

I write – either for my blog or other situations (I justify this by saying I have to write while the ideas are hot! – in reality a note or opening paragraph will keep it hot)

I research – I am an information addict.  I collect information for myself and for others and it clutters my desk, my mind, and my house

 

After this list it is a wonder anything gets done.  Though that isn't true – I do achieve most of what has to be done.  My procrastination affects the peace and atmosphere in my home.  It affects the abundance of my living.

 

How do I conquer this? 

 

My recent study of Enthusiasm is helping me.  Enthusiasm = God in.  If I know God is in something then I can be enthusiastic – I can smile, I can put my whole heart into it, I will see each job as important, I will focus on being an energy giver and I will not let failures stop me.

 

I can do none of this in my own strength – but through Christ that is in me I can.  Especially since I know God that it is God’s desire for me to be productive in every area of my life, He wants an abundance of peace and harmony in my home.  He will help me.
