What makes for a productive day? Why do some days feel so much more productive than others? I’m not always sure it is the amount of things you accomplish, but how you feel about accomplishing the tasks.
Yesterday felt like a productive day to me. I shoveled the snow 4 times… yes you read that right. It was light fluffy snow so it was easy to shovel, and I wanted to stay on top of it. There was about 1-2 inches of snow each time I went out. We have probably close to a foot of snow from the two batches of snow this week and it’s snowing already this morning.
Between shoveling; I cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed the rugs, did 2 loads of laundry and posted 2 blog posts (this one and that one). Yesterday I had the most views on my blog for a single day! WOOHOO! Where you one of my visitors yesterday? If so, thanks for stopping by yesterday and today… I love seeing people choose to read my blog! I also now have over 50 followers here and over 60 on my Facebook page. Hmm I haven’t posted on there in a bit, I’ll have to do that today too.
So what made my day feel productive? I don’t know. I did all things that I do on a normal week, ok except the amount of shoveling for a given day. I think it was just one of those days that I just ticked things off the list and felt like man I accomplished all I set out to do and more. I still had time to sit down and watch brainless tv. I didn’t feel rushed or over run. And, the funny thing is my day started late because the boys had a 2 hour delay so I didn’t start anything (other than shoveling) until after I’d brought them to the bus stop.
So what’s on the agenda today? The boys have another 2 hour delay (cold weather delay today it’s only 5F which is up from 3F at 5am when we got the phone call). After I drop them off at the bus I’m going to the gym and then the grocery store, they are on the same street so why not? Then, the cleaning that needs to be done. Maybe make homemade larabars (or Loribars as Colby calls them), prep dinner… hmmm wonder what else I’ll get done. I wonder if today I’ll feel productive? I guess if every day felt productive then that productive feeling wouldn’t mean as much?
I enjoy reading your replies to my posts. Keep sharing your thoughts, it helps motivate me to share mine!
What makes you feel like you’ve had a productive day? Have you ever made homemade LaraBars? Would anyone like the recipe?
