Getting sidetracked

Getting sidetracked I was hoping to do more today than have but like all too often with me, I got sidetracked into doing other things. I have a few more hours before I plan to turn out the light and go to sleep, so I’m going to be spending it here. Do you get sidetracked into doing other things when you are really wanting to do something? I know it happens a lot to me and I should really some do something about it, staying focused would be good and do what I’m hoping to get done. So with not being here as much as I would have liked today I’m a little behind on my goal for today, I guess there is always tomorrow to catch up.

I bet that you spent the day watching Noah and Nellie in the hope of picking up some good knitting tips.

It normally happens. My goal is to write a discussion here every morning but I get sidetracked at times too. However, I still struggle to do my Mylot challenge to post a day even it is already noontime or evening. For this day, I am able to post already a topic so I am already done with my challenge. Tomorrow, I might be late again in posting a discussion since it will be Sunday. My priority is to attend the mass first and then visit my dentist for my ortho-adjustment. I hope you will be able to do what you are eyeing for.

I think many people get sidetracked and end up not getting things done they expected to do.

I had to get back into making lists, and every hour I stop whatever I am doing and go get something on the list done.

You can't always be here, I was missing for here until a few hours ago, although I did pop in from time to time and do notifications.

@kevin1877uk I know but you know what I am doing. I forgot to reply on getting sidetracked. You know how my days has been distracted. So yes, I get sidetracked a lot.

I do get sidetracked sometimes but these days I have more focus on what I really wish and planned to do for the day.

@kevin1877uk my mind wanders to lots of things so it is easy for me to get sidetracked!

@Marty1 I know what you mean, think I have way too much on, doing too many things at a time.

I do get side tracked, especially once the kids need me to do something. Then I completely forget what I wanted to get done.

With the internet it's very easy to get side track. It takes a lot of will power not to take a peek at one's e-mail, social networks or surf the net.

I know it terrible isn't it, something so easy as an email can send you day totally off track.

It has happened to me on occasions. One day I had my plans already arranged and focused, but some human event ruined my plans and had to postpone them for the following day.
