People often ask me how I 'fit it all in'. And yet, at any given moment, there are about 100 things I haven't gotten done and am feeling like a horrible failure for. So, it always forces me to step back and take a moment to view the big picture. I love this quote from Bill Gates:
“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”
I've also heard this reiterated as 'most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a day and underestimate what they can accomplish in a week'. Anyone who has many passions and ambitions can find themselves falling into the trap of ending each day feeling behind or unaccomplished. This is something I really hope to overcome and I've started creating a plan to slow down my life. More on this in Part II, but first a look at what I have going on in my career right now :
The Everygirl is a blog I catch up on from time to time and this week they announced an Instagram campaign called Finding the Time. They are giving a behind the scenes glimpse of their work schedules and encouraged others to participate as well. This sounded like a great way for me to jump into my blogging. (Did you know you can embed your Instagram photos into a website or blog? Instructions here. )
This is my first photo of the campaign. Tuesdays are typically the start of my work week, and I tend to feel overwhelmed right off the bat. Coming off a vacation weekend means it's even worse, but I decided not to skip my 'coffee and computer time' this morning, which would only make me feel more frazzled. I'm also choosing not to make a To-Do list for the day and opting for a To-Do list for the week. But it won't all be work, of course! You can click on the photo below to go to my Instagram page and follow along.

Hello, there! My name is Nikki Jones and this is a place for me to write about my travels, my urban homesteading adventures, and whatever else my little heart desires at a given moment. Like many personal-blog bloggers, there are times I write daily and long streteches I'm not inspired to write at all. And that's ok! At any rate, I'm glad you're here.
