Ok, please tell me I am not the only one with this problem. ...
I think, "I am going to sit down and make such and such..." and I do sit down for awhile...but then I feel the need to get up and start on another task. And in the middle of that, I think of something else I have to do so I go do that . Pretty soon I have a bunch of almost done things...ha!
I do finish things, but in short blocks. I am not one to sit down and stay at something for hours on end...not even two hours on end, unless you are talking about sleeping!
I can't even sit down and watch a 2 hour movie without feeling the need to get up and go do something else for awhile. I wonder if it comes from just being a mom of four? When kids are little ( or even teens as mine are), you have to multi task all the time- maybe that is the reason, I trained myself to be that way!
At any rate, I have found a workable solution. I take the things I know I must get done, whether it be laundry, creating, cleaning the bathroom, etc. and I do it in spurts of a certain length. Let's say about a half hour-not too long, not too short to stay at something. Then, I "reward" myself by doing something that I like- read a book for 15 minutes or half hour, or go type on the computer (a real time eater if you let it!), go eat a cookie or drink some hot tea, go ride a bike around the block and back...you get the idea!
I think it's a good idea to have tasks that need getting done, but intersperse them with more likeable tasks so that you aren't doing it in a way that feels like drudgery. If you have a little reward here and there to indulge in, you are more likely to stay at it.
Now, I just looked at the clock and realized my time is up on the computer...better go and fold that laundry!
