A “cobbler’s children have no shoes” situation

When you spend your work life performing a specific task – pouring coffee, cobbling shoes, writing – it’s tough to muster up the energy to perform that same task in your “free” time. Most of my day is spent wordsmithing, piecing together articles and blog posts and web copy for my clients. And I love it. I’m one of the lucky few who genuinely loves her job.

But, when I knock off for the day, it’s difficult to sit back down in front of the computer and work on this blog. I choose to play with my dogs instead. Or visit with friends. Or clean the house (one of my favorite activities… really!). Or watch “NCIS” reruns.

I know I’m a little behind, but I’m working on my 2013 goals this week. One of the goals? Update the blog once a week. It’s a small task, one that I can manage without too much trouble. It’s simply a matter of getting in the habit.

I hope your 2013 is off to a great start! Do you have any specific goals to chase or habits to change?
