Ooooh, thank you! Sometimes, when I'm straddling that dangerous fence between following through on a task and slipping back into inactivity, just knowing there is a group of people on this site all pulling for each other gives me that little extra push in the right direction.

Your viewpoints and learnings are very interesting and helpful to me. I like it best when you have the time to post often - - - Actually, I like it best when everyone posts as I am learning and being inspired by everyone here.

Thanks, Doc. It was a little frustrating at times. I would get that "chicken-with-its-head-cut-off" feeling, frantic. But focusing on just breathing once in a while helped with that. But I think I'm better at not biting off too much at once (or at least when I have, I recognize THAT is the problem--not that I am inhererntly inefficient.) But it's still one day at a time, you know? Thanks for the encouragement!

First of all, I have to tell you guys how much I missed coming here this week. The job I was temping at from 8:30am-6:00pm was a basic receptionist position (aka gatekeeper!) and they did not provide me with internet access...so, between that and doing all the other stuff I try to do as an actor, I had to manage my time v-e-r-y carefully. My computer at home is an elderly fella, and he doesn't move too fast, so most of my home-computer time was spent on keeping my inbox uncluttered.

Now--in a nutshell, to get back to the topic, these are a few things I learned.
Time is not my master. I've been told that a billion times (and I will forget it again, so I hope you guys will remind me if I freak!) but this week really sent it home. I think it's the flexibility that's built into the system here. Although I had to do major re-arranging, I actually managed to get almost everything done this week I wanted to get done. I couldn't believe it when I looked at my checklist! Which leads to the other major thing I learned: If you keep your focus on what you Really Want (your goals) the tasks do not feel like Work! They feel like...accomplishments, progress, purpose-full! I am so happy to be back here this afternoon!
