On “Being Productive”

I had a sitter come to my house today and I had a total moment of panic when I realized I didn’t have my day set out. I had this great “advantage” of having paid help to look after my children and I hadn’t planned every moment of my day to be sufficiently productive! Usually I am running around – not in a chaotic way, but realistic to the way we live today, which is driving from one end of the city to the other as I visit clients, sit in on meetings, and have a coffee with friends. But today, none of that was planned. So I wandered around a bit. I called my mom in the morning, and we talked for an hour. I took a long, hot shower (a rare privilege these days) and went out for a lunch, for sushi, a meal that only I like in my household. Later on I went shopping and bought a much needed vacuum cleaner (ours mysteriously disappeared. Like where could a vacuum cleaner gone off to?) and a few other knick knacks. I came home and managed a 45 minute power nap before the sitter left.

Many work things were left undone. Emails I needed to respond to, a proposal that I should have been drafting. But it was just the kind of day that I needed. To give my brain a break and have a few moments just to wander.
