I've been working on staying on track during my work day - which can be surprisingly hard to do when you work from home. Basically I'm in total control of my schedule - which is awesome! - but also leads to lots of opportunities for detours.
Yesterday drove home the importance of staying in my lane. I was supposed to be doing some computer work, but I wanted to go dig up some stuff and investigate a farm issue that I am utterly unqualified to address. So, when faced with the option to do what I was supposed to vs what I wanted to, I picked up a shovel. And then I created slightly more of a problem than previously existed, and totally freaked myself out since I had zero expertise in what I was playing with anyway. Yeah - totally should have stayed at the computer for the hour. Then my accounting would have been done and I wouldn't have found myself freaking out over something I shouldn't have been in the middle of anyway.
Turns out my giant problem - not a giant problem once I talked to the expert. Just not a problem I personally can solve. Yeah - here's to staying in my lane.
