Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
It’s Monday and that means it is time for my Monday Musings. Today, I’d like to post a little about what has been on my mind lately. It seems there is so much to do and so little time to do it!
So, I am doing pretty good going through my pictures. It’s a long and tedious process but I am starting to see some progress and I am liking what I see. The problem I have right now is that I see so many other things that need to be done and I am hesitant at starting something new because I might leave this picture project undone! Have any of you ever had that problem?
Seriously, I haven’t done anything on my research in several months now. My databases (Family Tree Maker) are so incomplete and the forms and documents I have scanned are in just as bad a shape as my pictures are! I have two boxes of genealogy papers that I took out of binders over a year ago and still haven’t gotten around to unpacking. I also have a huge green tote full of pictures of all sizes that I have to put back into photo albums and, of course, scan if I haven’t already. I still need to figure out what I am going to do with all of the papers I have. Should I put them back into binders or would it be better to put them into a filing cabinet?
I’ve got a lot of things to do and the longer I put it off the longer it will take to get it done! It’s not like I have forever!
So, what should I do? Should I continue working on my pictures for now and put all this other off until later? Should I devise some sort of schedule? I could work on pictures the first week of the month, work on genealogy papers the second week, work on picture albums the third week and work on scanning the fourth week. Would that work out better?
My main concern is to avoid starting something and never finishing it. It seems like that has been my problem for the last few years. I jump around to so many different things that I never get anything accomplished. The problem I see now is that if I focus on just one thing, then I am not accomplishing anything on the other items that need to be done. Of course, I haven’t even listed my website and my blog! What about all of that?
I think the next few days I will be brainstorming (with myself, it seems) about this situation. I want to accomplish so much but I have to figure out the best way to accomplish it effectively! I’m sure I will come up with some sort of ideas. My first step has been taken by just posting what is on my mind.
Now I just have to figure out a plan of action!
Happy hunting to all my fellow genealogy friends!
