Know why I love Wednesdays?
It’s because every Wednesday I’m committed to sending a newsletter out to everyone on my mailing list.
I long ago discovered that I thrive on deadlines. The tighter the better.
And more recently I discovered I’m not nearly as productive without them.
After closing my yarn shop in late 2013, I went through a year of, well, I know no other word to sum it up with other than the 4 letter word LOSS. Not a topic for the here and now; let’s skip ahead.
Fast forward to fall of 2014. Almost a year ago, after my soul-searching period, I decided I needed to create a framework for myself. I needed solid deadlines that came regularly. I decided to announce to my readers that my newsletter would come out every Wednesday instead of the ‘willy-nilly when I get to it’ timeframe.
It’s kept me on track. It’s made me more aware, alert, and thinking all week long. I’ve been overseas and challenged with internet issues, but the newsletter must go on. I’ve been stunned with alarming news just before deadline, but by golly, I still wrote something! Because like I said, I thrive- truly thrive – on the deadline.
So Wednesday is my deadline day.
It grounds me for all my other days during the week.
