I know its been pretty quiet around here lately. I think about posting pretty much everyday, but something always gets in the way. Some task I hadn't planned on or things taking longer than they should. Kids need a ride. Mulligan needs something... or Facebook, or Twitter, or well you know the drill - we all have our distractions.
About the only thing I do that doesn't seem like a distraction is spend time with my wife and kids.
Although they told me I can't sing along with Glee so there's at least some time we might lose together.
I've recently put a name to my dilemma, my issue of getting caught up in "stuff," and not creating, not doing I've been reading Seth Godin's blog a lot lately and I feel like this recent post provides a pretty good summary of how I operate on a daily basis.
While Seth is talking mostly about new media and electronic communication though I think this is how I've worked since, well pretty much since I can remember. (Without deadlines especially), I've always been easily distracted. You know... kinda like this guy.

I've talked before about needing deadlines and it seems like lately that has been true more than ever. Recently I ran across an article on Mashable that I think will help me find a way to get more accomplished, not just with social media and electronic communication, but with everything. I hope.
Then again, I've talked about and asked folks about systems and ways for getting things accomplished and not feeling overwhelmed by to do lists.
I'm really just trying to find a way to get rid of this guy. I'm kind of tired of him, and he's pissing me off.
Would it be too much to ask if I asked you to send me some good mojo to help me send him packing?
Please feel free to share any of your ideas for getting things done, making progress, being creative and productive and well you get the picture...
