In a rut

Do you ever get in a rut, and quit doing online stuff because you get so busy at home and just don't have the time to do your online money making programs? I have been doing that lately, with the kids back at school it has really kept me on my toes, one thing right behind the other lately. I really need to get myself back into the habit of doing all of my online stuff, but lately its like I am just stuck running for someone, or doing something offline. Do you ever get a week or 2 where everything just stops you from doing what you normally do online?

if I am a past in the past, maybe for several weeks and even months passed in which I could not participate in the web by my lack of time for my work. Currently I can dedicate time, sometimes more, sometimes less in this than trying to make money online, and if God wants and I can guarantee a good income online, maybe you can give up work in traditional jobs. For now I'm in the slow process and if I see that it starts to go well with this type of activity, deserves more time and if necessary I will dedicate myself to this work only online.

That is about the way that I am lately, even my blog hasn't been updated for a good month, I really need to get something done, but I just had an operation Tues, so I know I can't sit long enough to do to much, but maybe I can work at the blog, little by little even if that is all that I do.

This happens all the time for me.I was first crazy about mylot and used to post areound 20-30 discussions per day.Then things start catching up.Small things ran into big errands.Work started coming up.Now I rarely have the chance to go through the very site I was crazy about because of all the extra commitments.I come her once in a while and respond to a few posts I find interesting and disappear.

I use to be able to spend the whole day in here and just reply one time right behind the other, and back then I could make loads of cash in here, now I can't seem to find the time to do that, but I however am going to start making sure that I can at the least spend 1 hour a day here, I think that would be better then not doing it at all.

yeah its happens sometimes with me too when I get some really stuff to do offline or whenever I got to attend some work or meet close one.sometimes I get really bored with online stuff and need a break.working online all day long would really make me sick so I always indulge myself in multi task this help me keeping myself active and calm.

I have always had to do multi tasking, if I didn't then I would end up with a head ache or getting bored.

I sometimes experience that as well. The key here is how to say no so that you can do more with your time. You have to do it politely so that you won't offend the other person. You have to manage your time well and be disciplined enough to follow them through or suffer the consequences.

I had to help some of the neighbors out since the deer that has been visiting everyone in the neighborhood has started to show his wild side, it was time to get him back to either where he belonged, or where he would be safe and all of the kids in the neighborhood would be safe, and finally I found out where he came from, so he is heading back to the farm soon. Then another neighbor is deaf and I had to make a good 10 calls for him yesterday. So yesterday was one really bad day. Especially when hubby called after all of that, and asked for me to go get him some more nails for work. I gave up completely even on cleaning the house at that point.

I have a lot of coursework to do in university so many a times it happens that I don't get time to work online for like 4-5 days at a stretch. I'm a freelance writer so what I do is, in between a boring lecture I frame an article and write it down. I set my target every month to a minimum of $600 and once I reach that mark I get a bit easy on myself and start taking out time for leisure as well. On the other hand, I tax myself a lot in case I'm lagging behind on the mark. I'm doing pretty good in university as well. However, my university coursework is of utmost importance to me. I strongly feel that things which one does offline should be given topmost priority. I make a good enough income but in future if I'm stuck in a situation like yours...I can let go the extra dollars and be true to my offline responsibilities. In your case, you need to set a timetable for yourself. Set aside sometime in the night or in the afternoon for your online work. In the weekends, you can set an extra hour for this purpose.

Even a few neighbors had me doing cartwheels this past week about a problem in the neighborhood so I have been right out straight, and it seems like when I do finally get some peace when the kids head off to bed, I am so tired myself, that I just go get on the couch and watch a quick 30 minutes of the news then head to bed. All I can do is hope and pray that next week and month is a bit better then this week was. It just really had me going this whole past week. I was planning on getting 2x's the work load done once my kids were back in school and instead its been one thing right behind the other.

It is so easy to get yourself into a rut. Lives get hectic and we just don't seem to have enough hours in the day to get things done. Activities we do online seem to take a back seat when time is an issue. There are a few sites such as mylot that i like to visit each day. Game sites are usually the ones that come at the bottom of my list. I do a lot of shopping online as well. sometimes I just have to pick and choose what is important for my day.

That is what I am doing today, I have no place to go, so I figured that unless if hubby calls and needs something, I am online for the day, and need to pick things up. Mylot was first on my schedule. I figure even 1 hour here will help me out some.
