On Tuesday night, I brought 3 days and 10 pages of notes to heel in this whacked out mind map. Even with my scattered brain forever chasing down The Meaning Of It All, I was able to rip the material and pin details to their categories. One night later, I had expanded this into a clean, 3-page document charting each week-long task between now and May 1, 2017. It’s typed. With headings. That makes it real, right?
Funny thing here that will surprise no one: As taxing as this is, my professional work has been hopping along with more efficiency than ever. The cross-pollination couldn’t be clearer. Organizing a writing project has fueled me to tackle those eat-that-frog tasks at work that I usually avoid until the last possible moment. Today, I made the penultimate round of revisions on a work assignment that isn’t due until mid-October, and it’s one I despise.
Inshallah, the momentum sustains. When it comes to providence, I’m starting to see that with each half step I take, it takes two towards me.
