#SoCS – The Key


I’ve finally figured out that the key to getting stuff done is being organized. Who knew?

All week I’ve been trying to organize my time into blocks–from this point to then, I do that. From then to then, I do this. And so on. And I’ve actually been productive!

I call it the productivity key.

Yes, I just came up with that.

So now that I have my productivity key, what do I need next?

Oh yes, my endless riches key.

Somehow I think that one might take a bit more work. But hey, productivity is probably the first step. Right?

But what would I do with endless riches? End world hunger for a start. Then maybe get a haircut. I haven’t had one of those in four years. Because it’s been, like, really? What’s the point? It only grows back. And it’s not like anyone ever sees me.

I really need a key to getting out of the house.

Which is weird, because most people want a key to get into the house.

But I think a key to getting out is almost as important.

Of course you want to get in … especially when it’s raining or snowing. But getting out? That can be priceless.

I went Christmas shopping with Alex today. He’s decided he’s not afraid of Santa anymore, so this is the first time he’s been in a mall at the same time as Santa. And it was great!

My point (read: where I was going with this) is that I actually got to do some people watching today, and I realized it’s been a REALLY long time since I did that. I forgot what people looked like!

Okay, not really. But it was like a refresher course in society living. There’s not much society in my house.

Just family.

And family’s not really society.

Are they?

So the key to society?

Running away from home.

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Productivity, endless riches, and running away from home.

Not necessarily in that order.

  1. I’d like “A Room of One’s Own” so to speak — and lock me in 😉
    I love the idea of your being out and seeing the society. I used to feel like that at times. I remember. I relate.
    Also, haircuts are happy. Get you one.


  2. I need to get back to scheduling blocks of time. Maybe you could schedule creative run away blocks. 🙂


  3. Not one of my strong suits, either…


  4. Organization, yes. I’m striving for more of that in 2020. Endless riches, lovely idea. Running away – fortunately I have the studio now so that’s where I run to. I’d say it is less expensive but probably not.


  5. I think you may have figured it out. Endless riches would help with the running away thing.


  6. Makes perfect sense to me
