Too many projects

Still not getting caught up, but I’ve figured out a couple of important things. One, I realized I had gotten into a bad habit with Taskwarrior: I’d skip past all the overdue non-daily items to get to the daily stuff. That led to me treating all the overdue stuff as something to ignore. So I’m […]

Wrapping up 2020

I was about to bump the Taskwarrior task for “Post to blog (W)” to next week when I realized this would be the last 2020 post. So okay, I guess that still falls within my decision to do the minimum work-related things between Christmas and New Years, and that Taskwarrior itself is a good topic […]

Recovery mode

The last big drop of new shop items for the year has happened, with this motley crew of mochi dragons. I have a couple of minky colors to restock in my giant stack of almost-finished dragons, and I’ll try to honor any special requests (such as non-baby mochi dragons). Plus I have two velvet dragons […]

Revisiting the to-do list

A while back I posted about my unfinished projects and a to-do list, so I thought I should revisit it since it’s supposed to keep me accountable. It’s going… okay. There’s good and bad. The good: it’s been pretty good about the small routine stuff. I take my vitamins, zero my inboxes, keep my business […]

Conquering the unfinished objects

I’ve talked about my ADHD in the past (that is my most-internally-linked post right there), Since my current work has been boring-to-blog stuff like sewing masks and cleaning/rearranging the work area to provide my husband with a dedicated WFH space and me with a dedicated tutorial-photography space, managing it has been extra-fun. So I’m writing […]

Managing a problem employee (me. It’s me)

As you may have guessed from my all-over-the-map projects, I have a little trouble staying on task. This is fine for hobbies (if I don’t mind having at least three storage tubs full of UFOs) but I need to be a little more efficient if I’m going to do this as a business. So I […]
